Positive: We did not meet anyone else during the 3 days trekking, there was little rubbish on the trek, the porters were really friendly and helpful, the food was good, the camping gear was good and the views were amazing.

Negative: The accommodation in Tetebatu was the worst from the 3 weeks in Bali/Lombok (but I think we had bad luck). When we went down to the lake we didn't have water left (miscommunication because we didn't know there was no water source at our camp site at the crater rim), so we went down during midday without water at hot temperatures. The way down was really dangerous, you could slip and die if you were not careful.

If you are looking for a thrill, do down to the crater lake. Otherwise the 2 days trip to the second summit should be enough and offers amazing views!!

Wow. My boyfriend and I decided to book through Jaya trekker at the recommendation of our guesthouse- not referencing any reviews prior, we decided to give it a go! We were immediately reassured by the bright and genuine energy of the staff- we met our guide Ofick the day prior and knew we were going to enjoy this experience regardless of the conditions or rigor. Our expectations were totally blown away! We trekked to crater rim with 1 guide and 2 porters- all of whom were beautiful and genuine people. The mentality of the team was refreshing- all about relaxing and soaking up the experience. We were totally shocked when the first meal was prepped- so much careful attention is put into each meal- the taste and presentation- A plus. Of course our porter Bendi, also the expert chef, was totally humble throughout and his top priority was always on others. My boyfriend and I felt at peace and welcomed into the lives of this group. On a deep human level we found our experience to reflect total selflessness and now several weeks later we still bring up these wonderful people in our daily conversations . As for the trek inself- beautiful, rewarding, highly exceeded expectations, and refreshing to be away from massive crowds. Overall, we are incredibly happy to have made new friends and to have been taken on an unforgettable journey.

We had a fabulous experience climbing Rinjani volcano from the less-traveled side. Jaya is very welcoming and his guides and porters are kind and professional. Although we had heavy rain on the way up, skies cleared overnight and the view at sunrise over the lake was phenomenal. Bring sufficient warm clothing as it’s cold up there (5C). Food was excellent and tent and sleeping bags were clean and tidy. An unforgettable trip!

I normally dont write reviews, only when it is exceptionally good, which was the case with the Rinjani trekking of Jaya trekker! We were with 4 people, by which 4 porters and 1 guide came along who have to climb the Rinjani with a large backpack, so alot of respect for that. They treated us as royals, cooking great food and providing very good tents and sleeping bags. We took enough breaks, by which they always provided a mat to sit on with lots of snacks and fruit. It was one of the best experiences in my life, although it stays really exhausting, and cannot be underestimated, but the views make up for it! We paid 6000000 rp for 4 people, but without the hotel stay the night before the trekking and without transport pickup and dropoff. Highly recommended!!!

We did the 2d1n craterrim trekking. It's doable for (fit) beginners! We only had to carry our own clothes. View at the rim was fantastic, so rewarding after the tough morning climb, and we we're the only ones up there! We walked through the rainforrest for 6 hours, which was cool! They cooked us nice warm meals and we had such a great time with our guide Ofick! Thank you!

Some tips: bring enough dry socks, sneakers are ok if they fit right. It's cold up there, so bring warm clothes (windbreaker).
