We just completed the 4 day / 3 night summit trek with Abul Trekking and cannot recommend the experience enough. The hike to the summit was incredibly challenging but the view from the summit at sunrise more than rewarded our efforts. Abul Trekking is a new company set up by local guide Abul. We choose to hike with him because... More

The view on Rinjani is breathtaking! It is worth all your effort to go up, really. Be prepared for a pretty strenuous hike and be well-equipped. Tip #1: Do not carry too much stuff in your backpack. It really makes your trek more enjoyable. Forget showering, so you don't need a massive bath towel. Bring LOTS of wet wipes (so... More

Hello all, Just finished our rinjani trek yesterday. We went with Green Rinjani, and opted for their deluxe package: US$200 per person (4.6million rupiah) all inclusive. Overall is was a really good trek, guide was really friendly. I speak a fair amount of Indonesian, and the guide spoke fairly good English. No issues there! There were only two of us... More

If you are used to travelling in National Parks across Australia, Canada etc you will be appalled by the amount of trash and human faeces both on the track and littered around your camp area like mini land mines. Health and safety support from guides and porters were non existent and in many ways was made more dangerous by the... More

My husband and I decided to trek Mt. Rinjani without a guide and porters. We got ride from airport to Sembalun Lawang and slept one night in Lembah hotel, where we paid 300000 rupias per night. We rented equipment- tent, sleeping bags, matresses, stove, gas and some cooking utensil from local guy fo 600600 rupias for 3 days. Next morning... More

Rinjani is one of the very few or probably the only place in the world which has a lake within a volcano and in the middle of the lake yet another live volcano!We were lucky the weather was on our side throughout the 4 days and was treated to a spectacular sunset at the Summit. I'll leave the description of... More

I had looked forward immensely to this trip after seeing amazing photos of sunrises and the glorious turquoise crater lake with the new volcanic cone protruding. I must say the weather can completely ruin such an experience. I do feel a sense of accomplishment after reaching the summit in good time and returning down with no real problems on the... More

We are a group of 8 trekkers ascending Mt Rinjani with Lombok Adventure Club. The pickup at the airport was swift and on schedule. We made our way to Sembalun Camp Hotel for our first night stay before our trek the next morning. Bathing is a pain as no heater is available and the temperature is freezing at night. Do... More

This is an absolutely beautiful mountain. It is a pity that the locals and hikers (to a lesser extent) have ruined it by turning it into a garbage dump. It seems like a lot of people are saying that on here, I just want you to know to expect worse than what you've read. My wife and I played an... More
