My partner and I booked the 2 day, 1 night crater rim tour with Jou and his team. It was organised excellently from start to finish. Our guide, Sultan and porters/chefs, Satar and Helik looked after us impeccably throughout the trek. Sultan guided us seamlessly to the 2nd summit in the dark of early morning, for sunrise. Watching the porters fly up and down the mountain with all the gear was a pretty awe-inspiring sight. These blokes are seriously impressive. Our drivers for pick up and drop off were also punctual, even early. To top off the trek package, we were treated to a Bintang in an icy-cold glass.

We booked a 2D1N to the crater rim with Jou Treeking and couldnt be happier. The whole team is super friendly and Jou is an amazing and caring organizer that really has your care and the care of the mountain at heart. "Ah-ouey" (sorry) our guide secured one of the best spot for the night and the two awesome porters cooked us diverse and great food. We were lucky enough to get different type of weather once at the crater rim - even a rainbow! We would definetly recommend going with Jou for the trek.

every part of the trip was fantastic. Jou organized a pick up for me, and a very nice villa for me to stay in the night before the trek. I was accompanied by Ris (guide), Gendeng and his brother (porters. I unfortunately did not get a chance to ask them how to write the brother’s name). The hike itself is gorgeous. Plenty of beautiful vistas of the National park, Mt Rinjani, Mt Baru Jari, and the Segara Anak lake. There are two things that stand out from this trek with Jou: 1. The guides are very well prepared (I unfortunately saw incidents where guides from other agencies were unable to administer basic medical treatment on the mountain). 2. This agency really puts a significant effort into collecting as much trash as possible (including those left behind by others) and maintaining a clean environment on the mountain. I highly recommend Jou’s trekking agency for those who wish to climb Mt. Rinjani.

Jou Trekking was the only company that responded to my request to hike Rinjani and they did an excellent job. I had a private trek with two porters and the best English speaking guide I could get (Lim). I realized very quickly on the mountain that I picked the best guide/company to hike Rinjani with. Firstly, the guide actually stays with you at your pace and doesn’t leave you to run ahead like I saw other guides do to their clients. They also strategically place your tent so you can have the best views, and be away from crowds and monkeys. They also take care of everything for you (food, cooking, setup, tear down) and they provided an extra porter for me to carry my large backpack with heavy camera gear so I could get my shots of the mountain without dying along the way (@adriangilaniphotography) The trek itself is pretty hard. Out of the hundreds of people trying to make it to the summit for sunrise I was one of ten people that made it to the summit on time. Most people made it after sunrise because it took them so long and lots of people gave up. My guide Lim was very encouraging, knew my hiking skill level, and we were lucky with perfect weather. Overall I would recommend Jou Trekking as they can taylor to your needs and are very good at what they do.

We had a tough (the trip) but amazing experience with our guide Nas from Jou Trekking. The trip was well organized, starting in a nice hotel in Senaru. The next day we started with the trip. It was a hard climb to all the 4 different POS and to Base camp. But we enjoyed a good lunch and got enough water and snacks from the guide Nas. The second night/day was a tough but amazing experience to the summit with spectacular views. We also had enough water and good meals that day. The walking took up to 5 hours the first day and 10 hours the second day. The sore legs afterwards are definitely worth it. We would certainly recommend a trekking with Jou. Especially because he supports the whole local community with his trips! We did the private tour which took 2 days and one night.
