About
Towering at 12,224 feet, Mount Rinjani is one of the highest volcanoes in Indonesia. The crowning jewel of Lombok island, this volcanic mountain is popular amongst trekkers and for hikes around its azure crater lake, Segara Anak. A three-day, two-night excursion is a popular hiking option, as you’ll have enough time to trek to the crater rim and visit the crater lake, villages, and hot springs. Other options include a shorter two-day hike that requires good fitness or a more relaxing four-day hike. Join a guided tour for a safe and hassle-free outdoor experience.

    Best adventure with Lombok trekking info!
    First of all, we liked the direct communication. They responded very fast to our e-mails and the answers to our questions were clear. Once we got there we met fauzi and our wonderful guide anto. They explained what we could expect and were very clear about the different stages of the trek.Throughout the whole trip anto briefings were very useful. Thanks to him we knew how to spread our energy for the three days trekking.Our porters were very friendly and cooked amazing dinner with an original appetizer every evening.The material was perfectly clean and smelled freshly washed.They gave us walking sticks, gloves and flashlights.All in all,we had the most beautiful adventure in our life and would definitely recommend Lombok trekking info to guide anyone who would also like to take this trip.Most importantly;don’t worry about a thing, because every little thing is gonna be allright.

    Amazing views of lake and crater
    It was a last minute decision but I am glad I did it. Had to rent a jacket, a headlight, and a walking stick - all of these are must haves. I am an occasional hiker and I found Mt. Rinjani to be challenging yet doable. Most of its challenge comes from the fact that there is loose gravel and thick layer of soil all across the trail. Unless you are wearing shoes with some good traction you will find yourself slipping a lot, both while going up and coming down. It becomes particularly a challenge when you begin your trek to summit at 3:00 am. At that point gravel is ankle deep. 2 steps forward are followed by 1 step back, and sometimes 3 steps back. This is where some hikers decide they have reached their limit and turn back. Toilet facilities at base camp are basic, hopefully you don’t have to use for than just pee. Amazing views from top - of the crater, lake, and the valley. Highly recommended.

    3 Days 2 Nights Mount Rinjani Hikking with Rinjani Team
    I went to Rinjani with Rinjani Team The owner, Mr Abu was great person and also the guide and porters were very friendly and helpful during my trip to Mount Rinjani, The owner sent good driver to come to pick me up from the airport to the hotel accommodation in Senaru. The entire experience was smooth and amazing from the pickup to the drop off. Through the trip they will check in with us to ensure that we are properly taken care of. The entire trip would not have been possible without them because the Rinjani Team organize everything very clear. The owner arranged a private trip for the two of us. Hence, making the experience for us even more fruitful and memorable So you don't have to worry if you will join other groups if you are coming as a couple. Highly recommend Ranjani Team for the trip to Mount Rinjani.

    Rinjani: Eye in heaven body in hell
    group. Experienced unprecedented prettiest sceneries from Rinjani crater sunset and crater picturesque blue lake. The following night summit attack appears be most challenging hike once in my lifetime. Yet absolutely worthy when able to view uncomparable sunrise at its 3726masl peak. Sort of place one comes once will never forget its beauty. The summit hike makes true a saying " your eye in heaven while body in hell". The 2nd day down-hill to the lake n soak into hot spring was another benefit from the trans route. Full of fowers and natural unique forest plants along descending hike last day was again a shock experience that's so memorable. This time Trans Rinjani. We hiked up an excellent squad, Hiked up to each one's best Fantastic sunrise Starry night sky and Seas of flowers and blooming, Enjoyed happiness, friendship, mutual help, perseverance, and sincere feelings, an unforgettable experience, and a little pride!

    Awesome Trek
    Dhyns Rinjani Hiking was amazing from the planning stages to the trek itself. Anci was one of the best tour guides we’ve encountered on our mount rinjani trekking and we’ve travelled a lot so far this year. Anci was patient trekking tour guide but kept a steady pace. Anci our tour guide was reassuring and helped my 13 year old son get through some difficulty close to 3726 above sea level. The porters were efficient friendly and quick service !! The chefs made the most delicious foods every time- couldn’t believe they managed this on the trek. I would recommend Dhyns Rinjani Hiking to anyone deciding to go trekking in Mount Rinjani Lombok.

    Amazing experience
    We did the 3 day 2 night guide with Ecan and his team. Ecan the guide spoke amazing English and loved reggae! From the moment he picked us up he had a smile on his face and this continued throughout the hike, he always licked up the energy when we got tired. He was very knowledgeable and an amazing guide. The porters looked after us, cooked amazing food and did their jobs perfectly. We had the best experience we could have hoped for, it was the best climb and hike we've ever done. We are so happy I have shared it with Edi and his Team Rinjani Group Trekking high recommendation for your trip you can visit Rinjani group trekking and the manager quickly replay by WhatsApp +6281353755621

I see a lot of review recommending the 2 days because the 3 days is a tough hike, summit is the height of the trek etc..

Well I would like to add something to this:

If you're the type of traveller who's there to reach the top, get a big win and continue your journey, then the 2 days is for you!

BUT

If you love mountains, beautifull sceneries, and up for some days of hiking we recommend doing the 4 days! This is not listed everywhere but this is an option you can take.

The 3 and 4 days are the same trek route-wise, but with the 4 days you just take a day extra to hike the distance. You get to relax much more at the lake and hotsprings (there is one where you can really dip in completely!) and overall enjoy the surroundings much more than with the 3 day trek.

You get an extra night at the lake, and although I read some reviews about littering, there are places that are very clean (we went with Rinjani Dawn, and they camp out a bit further than most, and over there it was clean and very scenic). We had a beautiful night with the milky way and a cozy campfire.

We really had a great time and were very glad to have the 4 days, we could really set our own pace because we didn't have tough miles to beat everyday and get in before it got dark. We took our time, made lots of photos, enjoyed the surroundings.

But we will would like to stretch that, although technically not a difficult hike, it is very strenuous, and make sure you're fit enough to do it! We both exercise regularly and still had it rough on the summit, we also had a lot of wind which didn't make it easier :)

But it's a great experience which really feels like an accomplishment once done, so 10/10 woud recommend

Seeking adventure and something different my family and I decided to include a two day Mt Rinjani trek as part of our 10 day Lombok trip.

Having read the many reviews on Trip Advisor we contacted a small number of trekking companies to get a sense of best fit, deciding on Mr Hardy from Lombok Trekking based on his extensive experience (20+ years) and helpful planning approach.

From the moment we arrived in Lombok from Bali by ferry Mr Hardy and team took absolute care of us, meeting additional requests and going above and beyond on our three days with them. From transport, extra equipment and provisions to a side waterfall tour it was an amazing experience, and I couldn't recommend Mr Hardy and team more highly.

The Mt Rinjani two day climb itself was brilliant, a family experience that sits high on our travel highlights. Whilst challenging in parts we all have a good level of fitness (two active teenage boys) and thoroughly enjoyed the physical component, add this to the base camp and sunrise summit climb and it really is unforgettable. Zain our guide was fantastic in this respect, quickly building a strong relationship with our boys and tailoring the trek to their needs. From the waterfall side trip, expert iphone photos to trekking tips and tricks his and the climb team’s considerable efforts genuinely made a difference, and we were all very grateful for the opportunity they provided.

In summary goes without saying you need a solid level of fitness and a sense of adventure to make it worthwhile, however if you are looking to do something different in Lombok I highly recommend climbing Mt Rijani with Mr Hardy’s Lombok Trekking company.

Mount Rinjani is one of Indonesia's iconic mountains, and a must for anyone who is visiting Lombok and likes to hike mountains. Be warned, climbing Mt Rinjani is no "walk in the park", it represents a genuine challenge for most people. Being from Lombok, I have climbed the mountains a number of times, and can offer the following advice:

1. Prepare for the hike. You will find it far more enjoyable if you have a good cardio base. There is a fair amount of elevation gain in a relatively small distance.. which translates as steep most of the way.

2. Choose a reputable (and licensed) company. This is important for many reasons. Despite being mind-blowingly beautiful, Rinjani has a rubbish issue, especially at certain rest points. Most of this problem comes from illegal or budget operators not employing enough porters. They are carrying too much weight, and look to get rid of excess at the earliest opportunity. Ensure the company you book with has a "leave no trace" policy, and uses a good ratio of customers to porters (1:1 is a good ratio).

3. Pack warm clothes for the evening and the summit push. Temperatures can drop to a few degrees above zero (centigrade) on the crater rim and summit, and if it's windy, it can feel freezing. Another reason for choosing a good operator, is they might be able to lend you a jacket, hat and gloves if you forgot to bring these items.

4. Bring a small amount of money to tip guides and porters.

5. Drop by Cafe Rinjani Dawn before or after your trek, to enjoy ice cold beer, locally sourced coffee, pizza, burgers, and the best Indonesian food in town! If you need advice as to reputable trekking companies, we can recommend our friends at Rinjani Dawn Adventures and Lost on Lombok.

Never ever again !
We climbed Rinjani 8 years ago and had great memories of our climbing adventure, so when we heard that rinjani is back open, but could only be booked by an app called e rinjani we were very excited to say the least.
This app only works for Andriod Phones which made a booking difficult to say the least, after securing an old phone and downloading the app i could finaly make a booking. At the moment they only allow one night 2 days with all this Covid Restrictions, which was not ideal but we still went for it.
We booked as Indonesians as me and my friend lived here more then 30 years and have our own KTP and KITAP, after organising our porters via a friend we are all set to go.
The day we arrived in Sembalun we checked into the Hotel next door to the National Park Office, since we wanted to start early the next day we thought we better check in the day before. We had to wait 2,5 hours until some officer finaly came, and thats there the trouble all started. Our Porters were already with us and ready to assist, but as soon as the officer saw as ,and we showed our booking he said it was not valid but will check with his boss.After a while he came back to us and said, because we are foreigners this booking is not valid and we have to book as tourists which is a 150 k a day compare to 5 k for Locals per day. Ok i thought this is a little dicriminating but still Ok as we really wanted to hike this beautiful mountain again. But after we agreed to pay the higher fee he then instisted that all foreigners have to book through a trekking organiser, which we did not need as we booked our own porters and had all our food and gear ready to go. On top of that he also demanded to get another local health certificate which was not mentioned anywhere in the app, we already had to do the covid test were the certifacte was provided according to the new regulations.
After about 10 minutes a trekking oraganizer arrived and the first thing he said was i can help you, but I am expensive 350 USD per person as mentioned on the internet, compare to not even one Dollar what locals would pay. Of course we did not go for his rip off, and left the office immediately. They have no business and all the locals are struggeling due to the earthquake and pandamic. It makes me sad and angry at the same time, sad for the locals as they would really need our salary to survive asit was only there second job all year according to them, and extremely angry at the officals of this nationalpark as they were not willing to help and interested to honor our booking as local residents.They are part of Unesco now, maybe they don t even want any hikers there anymore and they have enough funding already.
So as a foreigner even if you lived in Indonesia for over 30 years and pay your taxes and employee 130 staff, you will never ever be a local in there eyes. This authorties at the office are discriminating to say the least.
We spent our 3 days climbing some surrounding hills, and met some great local people and none of them could understand why we got denied to climb Rinjani. Its a shame because it is a beautiful place but can not be recommended anymore...........thanks for reading it all!

I highly recommend Rinjani Trekking Guide (rinjanitrekkingguide.com) for a Mount Rinjani hiking trip. Communication was clear and easy via email before the trip itself. The homestay before the hike was clean and comfortable. Our guide, Man, was amazing. Seriously, kudos to this man. He got all of us to the peak even when we were slow and on the verge of giving up. He was friendly, fun, and just an easy going guy all around. The porters were also amazing, carrying all the items required to make our 3 days 2 nights trip comfortable. And the food prepared by them was delicious and plentiful (I still can't believe we got fried banana fritters at the campsite!). You will not go hungry with them on this trip. We felt very well taken care of from start to finish. 5 stars all around.

So you are thinking about climbing this mountain and deciding if this is a good way to spend your time in Lombok, Well you should definitely do this trek.

There are so many reasons for it, I will give you what you need to hear only.

First of all, This mountain is gorgeous and majestic, it offers something you won't see everyday, or even yearly. If you want to go here to spend with your family or partner or even friends, this is a perfect place to do that. Of course you have to be fit.
The most important part to get the most out of this experience is a great trekking organizer, there are so many out there and you are wondering which to choose, let me save you time from headache, Rinjаni Fοundаtiоn. From countless hours of researching and battled with my perfectionist personality. I can proudly recommend that to you all. I will comeback to tackle the summit this June with them and they offers summit trek start from April. I was lucky to have seats with them on June as they almost fully booked.

Avoid to book your trip to hike mount rinjani in Gili. We Went Hike Mount rinjani and took 3 day 2 night the Service not Such We Expected. We have Lest Water Drink And Was Poor Service That We Have. We Book The Quite Higher Price But When You Book In Gili The Agent Will Salle You To Another Agent In Out Side Of Gili Such Trekking Operated In Senaru With Very Cheap So That The Reason You Got  Poor Service.

Trek in Mount Rinjani Required have Enough Water Cause The Trek Was Hot And Spent Much Energy, And Enough Food On The Mountain. Because There's No One Salle if Food, We Meet A Group In Mountain We Pay With Same Rate They Got Private Service And Good Trekking Equipment And Have Much Water Drink, And When You Complain The Agent Doesn't Responding. We Think Better For You Book Directly In Senaru.

Someone Told Us In Senaru The Agent In Senaru Never Had Experience Also With The Mountain. But When You Asked They Will Answer  The Have Thousands Experience But That Is Lie And Don't Need To Trusted.
