First of all, Rinjani is beautiful and well worth it. The terrain rough, and worse with rain, but make sure you choose the tour company carefully! We went on the 3D/2N summit. He did mention on the website for advanced trekkers, not beginners. Well, we trekked Mt Kilimanjaro and other mountains without any issues. And the German girl who joined... More

We were a group of 3 adults (aged 49,49,50) and 3 teenagers (13,15,16) who attempted the summit. Even though none of us reached the summit due to storm or lack of fitness, these 3D/2N were an unforgettable and wonderful experience thanks to Rudy Trekker and his team. During preparation, Antok was quick to respond to all our questions and changes... More

To get here, you must travel by road for approx. 3.5 hours from Lombok-Praya Int'l Airport, but soon you'll see that the place is totally worth visiting. It still has a pure air, pure nature, you can see rice paddy and vegetables field stretches across the landscape like a rainbow carpet. Here you can do vegetables and strawberry picking or... More

A man named Singah was our guide (he has been trekking Rinjani for 16 years) first as a porter and now was a guide. He was excellent. When my boyfriend was sick, he... More

For nature lover, Sembalun Village was a great escape. The view was amazing with the fresh air, surrounded with the mountain. There are few hills that available for hiking except the well known Mount Rinjani.
