Brilliant mountain! Breathtaking view. Had a great time with JUL (+62818540673) from senarutrekking co. From the airport pickup till end off the trip Jul & the team provided excellent service. The camping equipment are all in excellent condition, though on the mountain but we had a great sleep. Best of all our guide even pack up and take their rubbish... More

Firstly, this isn't a write up about individual companies who do vary massively in quality it seems but the actual trek itself. There are several options ranging from 1 night to 4 nights and various routes so these can change things. We opted for the 3 days/2 nights trek starting in Senaru and ending in the town of Sembalun Lawang.... More

We recently went on the 2 day 1 night trek to the Rinjani Crater rim. We chose to go with Johns Adventures. My husband and I are not experienced hikers (low - medium level of fitness) - we found the climb hard work but an absolutely amazing and worthwhile experience. It took us about 8 hours, inclusive of lunch and... More

ANDREAS EXPEDITION was probably amongst the most expensive ones, we were happy to book as they appeared to have an austrian owner. they indeed do, but the team IS VERY LOMBOK in all their way of executing - quite disappointing - i hope they improve fast all in all too many small problems, cutting corners, not complete equipment (chairs) and...

My husband and I completed the 3 day 2 night trek in Sept. This was our first trek and we weren't sure what to expect in terms of standards. We were delighted with the whole trip. The airport pick up and hotel the night before the trek were great, but the trek itself was amazing. The quality of the food... More

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...
