We had a great 2d1n trip to the rim. Starting in the early morning we had to walk about 2000 meters upward to have a wonderful view over the lake and also were able to see the best sunrice ever. Worth it ;)

We did a two days/one night trek to the crater rim with Abul trekking. This is an outstanding but tough ascent and descent of 6700ft - 7 hours up and 5 hours down, camping at the rim. We had a very caring guide, Full, and two porters for our camping gear, food and water. A constant supply of water and... More

I was recommended this company in April from a friend who did the 3D/2N trek up Rinjani. She recommended that we take the 4D/3N trek which I think was a right decision. We have unhurried trek being able to enjoy the wonderful scenery. I think if you are environmentally conscious, this is the company you should choose to trek with.... More

3 days, 2 nights trek: Incredible, demanding, tough but totally worth it! We opted for the private tour and we were really glad about it. A lot of the other travellers doing the trek with other tour operators were complaining that their guides weren't always present for them, didn't give them enough food or water (quite important…), didn't climb with...

We've chosen 4days/3nights Summit tour starting in Sembalun. I recommend this option for everybody who is not extremely fit and have time for that. It's much easier to have summit climbing in the first part of the trek while you still have energy :) I was reading tripadvisor reviews like you are doing it now to choose trustful trekking company...

It took us 3 days and 2 nights to do the round trip of Rinjani's volcano. Bring good hiking boots, high socks, gear for cold weather (around 5-10 Degres Celcius). Don't forget Babywipes, it's going to be your best friend up there! Lots of walking, sometimes up to 11-13 hours. Bring also your bating suit to swing in the hotest... More

My group of 6 friends climbed Mt Rinjani in June and did a 3 day 2 night trip with Tutik Rinjani Trekker. Our trek started from Sembalun and on the first day it was 7 h trek to the crater rim. The scenery and the sunset was breathtaking! Next night at 3am we started walking to the summit and this... More

Whether you go for the 2 day or 3 day tour, the trek is tough... physical and mentally tough... you will have to climb directly towards the top and there won't be laces or Z routes ... so imagine a straight line to the top. Also, expect to climb on sandy rocks and sand... small lava rocks... so this means... More
