6 Days Mt Rinjani Trek
The trek up Mt Rinjani is not to be taken lightly; it’s the third highest mountain in Indonesia standing at around 4,000 meters and takes a full day to reach the rim of the Crater Lake just below the summit. Lenticular clouds hang over Rinjani, shaped as a flying saucer they form in really high wind speeds above peaks and create a spectacular drape on the mean volcano. Mount Rinjani was created from a volcano, the crater being filled by a lake which has bred it’s own mini baby volcano, only 10 years old.
This trip will bring you to the beach at Sengigi to stay in the hotel before embarking a 4D3N trek to the top of Rinjani. The mountains are populated with packs of apes so climber should be cautious.
It is recommended that all climbers should have themselves medically checked before attempting any mountain climb. If you have a history of suffering from the following ailments, it is highly recommend that you should refrain from climbing: Hypertension, Diabetes, Palpitation, Arthritis, Heart disease, severe anemia, Peptic ulcers, Epileptic fits, Obesity (overweight), Chronic asthma, Muscular cramps, Hepatitis (jaundice); or any other disease which may hamper the climber.

Getting to the top is the best moment of the trip! And the last 400m to the top is the moment we least enjoyed. A Fulfilling trip. This is nothing to do with X-trekkers but the amount of litter on the mountain was a disgrace and completely at odds with the natural beauty of the place. The Indonesian Park authority should provide adequate facilities to allow porters and guides to dispose of litter properly.
Alpa was excellent. she set my expectations appropriately and answered all my questions…John Thomson (3-7 July 2014)
While there was hiccups in the arrangement on the ground in Rinjani, I am nevertheless very pleased with the customer service and support rendered. The due diligence put in to resolve the issue and rectify it cements my faith in this company and I will definitely come back to this company for future trek arrangements. Many thanks to Ms Alpa for the excellent service rendered despite calling from a different country and late at night to resolve the issues. I am grateful.
Tackling Rinjani requires many hours of training, and proper planning. It is advisable to utilize the porters instead of carrying your own kit/gear. Lest one suffers from massive cramps and aches which will plague the overall progress of the journey.
Rinjani is relatively dangerous, with the summit bid being the one to watch out for. The rumors hold true that with every 3 steps you take, you slide back 2. One key issue with Rinjani is never to rush through it as the trails are relatively precarious. An issue people may face is with the guide as they tend to simply lead the way ahead and wait, and not point out the pitfalls or potential danger zones of the area, so it is wise to be cautious.
Getting back to the foot of the mountain in one piece is the best moment of the trip. Rinjani is relatively dangerous, on hindsight it would’ve been wise to utilize porters to carry our packs. We personally felt it would’ve been a better achievement to have carry our own gear, and it was a bad decision, as carrying 14 kilos up sure did wear us out pretty fast. Nevertheless it was a humbling but empowering experience!
Moment least enjoyed: Carrying my 14kg pack up a hill and realizing that there is yet another one, and another, and another, and another. Mental note to pack lighter in future.
The logistics was planned out very well, except for the slight miscommunication on the ground in Rinjani with the local trekking company. The issue was resolved very smoothly and efficiently in spite of the regional difference and late night. Many kudos to Ms Alpa for the excellent service!
The service rendered and support in spite of being overseas is EXCELLENT. I would highly recommend this company. In fact I’d expect to arrange more trips with you guys in the near future.Joshua Lim (2-9 Nov 13)
