I did a 3 day 2 night trek with John's Rinjani. They were professional and the guides gave great service although not super knowledgeable. The porters were incredible, walking up the mountain faster then most hikers carrying 40kg on bamboo, wearing flip-flops while smoking! The scenery is beautiful but trash is everywhere as well as human waste. The guides claimed... More

We visited the plantation and the farms in Sembalun Bambung and it was just soooooo fun! The view was amazing and it's a must if you're around the village. I did my booking via Chickenfeettravels and they're the best!

This is the best tour company to join by far. Attentive, professional and always there when you need them whether you are having trouble trying to get to the next camp or if you feel like changing the initial schedule. In terms of what this amazing landscape has to offer: all the effort trekking and walking doesn't disappoint at all.... More

The trek is very difficult and straight to the top, but it worth if like me it's more about a personal challenge (1rst hike ever) than for the lookout. Cause once up, the view is indeed gorgeous at sunrise. But think twice before doing it! AVOID JOHN'S ADVENTURE (please take time to carefully read other comments on Rinjani Tripadvisor and... More

This village is called Sembahulun (or sembalun) by its inhabitants which means "pray first prior to climbing the mountain". Hence every Rinjani trekker is expected to prioritize his her safety when trekking and should... More

The view is superb and the flora and fauna fascinating. We had Mr Faroush Aziz from Vertical Lombok drive us. Lunch at Senaru before trekking to the Sendang Gile waterfall. Make sure you ask to stop for fish satay in Pemenang near Tanjung on the northwest coast (only before sunset), or the famous sate bebalung in Rembiga (between Senggigi and... More
