I just returned from Mt Rinjani and had the pleasure of doing the trek with Mr. John's guide Qush and his two porters. Qush was fantastic and I highly recommend requesting him to travel with. He kept us motivated throughout the trek, he played music all the way up the mountain to help distract us from the burning legs and... More

A nice place to start the climb to Mt. Rinjani. We walked along a village with farms. The view was average. The longer you walked, the more you would appreciate the nature. The climb was gentle initially and we had lunch prepared by the porters. The unfortunate thing was that it was dirty with rubbish on the ground everywhere. The... More

We did a 3days 2 nights trek in April 2015. The material and guide/porters were great and experienced. But we had a lot of rain and a storm on the crater rim on the first night with the tent almost falling on us because of the wind that was very strong. Furthermore, the next day, we had again a rainy... More

Was here for a night as part of our 7day trip to lombok. This Village is friendly but the locals are a little shy, possibly due to the lack of tourist interaction. There isn't much to do here after dinner, so be prepared for a long and cold night. There are several guest houses around suiting various needs and many... More

Did a quick 2D/1N trip to the crater rim from the Senaru Side. We opted for Rinjani Fun Treks (Irfan) and it was very well organized. Given our low fitness levels, we found the trek to be quite strenuous. However, the folks at Rinjani Fun Treks (Guide: Ronny) kept us going and managed to pace the trek well. The food... More

My boyfriend and I went on the 2 day 1 night trek up mount Rinjani with Ahmed expeditions last week. The company had been recommended to us by a friend of mine and we had a fantastic experience. The price we paid included airport collection, transfers to the base camp in Senaru, dinner the night before the climb, accommodation the... More

Our guide Selman was excellent and very entertaining. We swam in the lake and used the hot springs. Food was great and loads of it. Make sure you eat a big... More

My 3 friends and I arrived in Bali with minimal plans made but knew that climbing Rinjani was top of the list. We did a couple of quick searches the day before we wanted to go to Lombok and found Rudy Trekking. We definitely made the right choice and couldn't have been happier with the experience. From the first email,... More
