We climb Mt Rinjani with Jou Trekking it was awesome! The view superb, the weather extremely kind and sunny. The porters were amazing, what with their speed, stamina and ability to carry heavy loads! The mountain took my breath away. So beautiful, so humbling.. At nightfall, just sipping a cup of hot tea and watch the stars by Danau Segara Anak Lake.. Watching the sunrise at campsite was amazing experience, but watch the sunrise over the whole of Lombok at the summit of Mount Rinjani, now that is mindblowing! Climb Mount rinjani was one of the highlights of our trip to Lombok. Everything was very well organized by Jou trekking we had tons of food and our guide and porters were fantastic. Thanks for a great experience!

We did the 4d 3n rinjani climb.

We were glad we picked Jou.

Before the trip the bookinb process was easy,
just email Jou. Jou was very informative and provided us the details of what needed to bring. Unfortunately one of our members had Covid just before travel and had to cancel, Jou provided us a refund of her deposit.

During the trip, our guide Sultan did a good job bringing us where we needed to go, giving us information and explaining things well to us. He also took special care of one of our members who were a bit slower by staying back with her and giving her more assist and help me latter when I injured my knees. I also loved our 3 potters who were always cheerful and are excellent cook. I have to say in this trip were never hungry.

It was a great trip we made it to the peak, but because our group was a bit slow and it was our own personal group, we could rearrange things with Sultan to ensure we can still travel at our pace ( also being a 4 day 3n trip also helped ).

Rinjani is beautiful, the view and is both serene and surreal, so breathtaking.

Mount Rinjani hike 4 days was amazing adventure.
Our guide Jule was full of information and encouraged us to ask all the questions we could think of. He never once rushed us, allowing each member to walk at their own pace. The porters were incredible. The foods on the trek was some of the best I’ve had while in lombok. We will surely reccomend Jou Trekking to our friends and families back home

We did the private trekking 2D1N to the summit with Meng. What an experience! It was super tough but so worth it. Meng was an amazing guide and made sure that we made it to the summit. Our sleeping equipment was of good quality, and waterproof (we should know as it was pouring). The food was great and they even suprised us with a Coke sometimes.

On the last day Jou booked a private boat for us to take us to Gili T, this was super nice as we would have missed the public ferry.

All in all, I would 10000% recommend to book with Jou Trekking.

we took the 3 days and 2 nights trip up top, down to lake and crater rim with Jou  trekking and everything was well organized, the camping gear was very good and food we get was delicious.
the trek itself was very demanding, but all the same definitley worth it. Make sure you have the right equipment,  Mr. Jou can lend you jackets, long pants etc. The weather can be bad at the summit, so make sure you're warm enough.
The porters guide were very nice and helpful and they olso pick up rubbish long the trek and we had plenty of good food and drinking water.
other than that, mount rinjani is  beautiful but surrounding the camping sites were very dirty from lots of plastic and trash thrown every where, please clean your mountain once thoughly and than bring down all of your rubbish when you go up to your mountain! otherwise western people will not come anymore I guess if stay dirty

We did a 2-day / 1-night trek (Senaru > Sembulan > Summit) due to time. If we had more time, we probably would have done the 3-day / 2-night, where you hike down the rim into the volcano and lake and sit in natural hot springs.
We went with Jou Trekking. Jou is very friendly and can hike like a mountain goat! He speaks very good English. They provided tent, sleeping gear, food, adn the porter carried it all up for us. We only had to carry a light day pack. Woke up early for the sunrise at the summit. Bring poles, or request them from your travel company. They are very helpful, especially on the final summit with lots of loose rock (every step up is a half step slide down). It was challenging (and I'm an avid hiker/climber/mountaineer), but it was amazing!!! Do it!

The trek was incredibly fun but also quite the challenge. We took private tour package with Jou Trekking, by far the best trekking company for Mt Rinjani hike! We saw so many other trekking companies that didn't take proper care of their hikers, gave them terrible food and left them stranded when they needed help. We felt truly blessed! First of all, our guide Mr. Gede were very friendly, spoke good English and were there to help me when I struggled descending from the summit due to exhaustion and the altitude. Our food was great. While others ate soup noodles for 3 days, we got a variety of fruit, deliciously cooked warm food, snacks, teas and bottled water. We felt taken care of the entire time, I couldn't recommend more. The best thing of all was to have a toilet tent at our camp, which meant that we could easily go to the bathroom and didn't have to find a bush.

One additional reason to choose Jou Trekking is Eco Friendly Trekking company, that they care for the environment and take all of the rubbish back, the guides even collect the rubbish that others have left on the way and at the camps. So if you want to make an amazing experience and have a great time trekking through an incredible landscape, do this tour and choose Jou Trekking

Our trip with Jou Trekking was incredible! He took care of us so well, and all of the other people we met with other guides kept telling us that they were so jealous of us! Jou brought us lots of delicious food, provided a great sleeping area, and made sure we had the best experience. He also picked up trash that the other groups left. Jou Trekking gave us the perfect experience and I would highly recommend trekking Rinjani with him!

I did the 4d/3n with Jou trekking. We spent the first night in a guest house near waterfalls Jou was a very friendly guide who speaks excellent English. With the help of porters, he prepared to us very delicious and copious meals.

The trekking was one of the most challenging things I've ever done because it was the first time I went to the summit of a mountain. The ascent to the summit is the most difficult part since the ground is sandy and stony and when you make two steps forward, you go one step back (better to have hiking sticks). I went slowly, and Jou (the guide) went with me on my rhythm (other members of the group were more experienced than me, so they went up quicker), and waited for me sometimes. I forgot to bring a jacket with me so I had to go to the summit with a sleeping bag on my shoulders and it was freezing, so don't forget to take warm clothes with you!
It was very hard to get to the summit, but at the end, the view was amazing and breathtaking, and worth the effort.
