Syam Trekker Review

3D2N Rinjani Summit We did the 3D2N tour to the summit with Rob as our guide and it was the best thing we have ever done!!We did our research before hand and knew this would be challenging… we are quite active but not hikers so found parts of this trek tough and strenuous (particularly the afternoon of day 2 which was exhausting and a lot more demanding than I had anticipated…. I thought the Summit would be the hardest part) but it was so rewarding and a once in a lifetime experience. Rob our guide was friendly, fun, patient and motivating. He also shared lots of information on the mystics of Queen Rinjani and local insights.From start to finish it was excellent. The porters were amazing and we had everything we could need, so much delicious food and fruit, plenty of water and comfy clean camping equipment. In addition to all the info on the webpage Syam and his team delivered so much more that we thought. From the airport pick up with Bull across the long scenic Lombok views, the first night stay in the bamboo village (with the most spectacular sunset views), to the stop at the waterfalls when we were finished to refresh and enjoy… my partner left his coat in the UK and the team were able to provide a spare for him, and also we had a private boat transfer to Gili T afterwards. Everything was seamless and a dream! Lastly, they really take care of the mountain, there is a big focus on keeping it clean and our tour left no trace behind us wherever we went. They also participate in wider clear up missions where Syam’s wife Resi makes recycled bags made out of collected rubbish.If in any doubt, book with Syam Trekkers!

Syam and his team are really professional and friendlyl, his wife prepared us an amazing dinner the night before 🙂 Nice home made tipical indonesian food! Rupi was our guide, he was so nice and a great guide! All the team made our 2D 1N unforgettable, they cooked amazing food for us during both days! I really recommend them!Thank you for everything!Claudia

Breathtaking Rinjani Climb! An amazing journey up to the peak of Rinjani with the team from Syam Trekker. The journey was tough with breathtaking views, all made possible with the care, advice and patience of our guide and the porters! We were very well taken care of from the moment we arrived at the airport until the completion of this epic journey. With more than 10 years of experience and thousands of ascent up Rinjani, the teams at Syam Trekker are truly a pro. They were both attentive and accommodating to our needs and gave us a sense of safety and confidence that we can make it to the summit. Can’t thank them enough for making our climb a memorable one. Highly recommended!
Excellent two day trek Excellent two day trek to summit with my two friends. From the airport pick up, to briefing, to the actual trek, it was first class service and attention. Syam and his team really took care of us and we enjoyed a lovely dinner with him before the trek. The guide was excellent, and so were the porters. Without their support we would not have made it to the summit.
Kijk niet verder, boek hier!!! Wij hebben echt een geweldige ervaring gehad bij Syam, Resi, hun team en familie. Vanaf het eerste moment word je zeer persoonlijk behandeld en begeleid alsof je onderdeel van de familie bent. Ook zijn Syam en zijn team en familie erg milieubewust en nauw betrokken bij het ontwikkelen en opruimen van het nationaal park Rinjani.Wij hadden gekozen voor het private package 1N2D to summit en dat zouden wij ook iedereen aanraden; je betaalt iets meer maar krijgt er ook veel meer comfort voor terug.Wij boekten pas op het laatste moment en dat was totaal geen probleem. Syam reageert zeer snel, persoonlijk en professioneel op boekingen en de vragen die worden gesteld. Speciale verzoeken zoals dieet wensen, ophaal-/afzet locatie en huren-/kopen van materiaal waren allemaal geen probleem en konden gelijk worden geregeld.De dag voor de trekking werden wij opgehaald bij de haven Bangsal. Ondanks dat wij een uur vroeger arriveerden dan wij hadden afgesproken met Syam, stond de chauffeur binnen 10minuten al klaar om ons op te halen. De auto van Syam is heel erg comfortabel en ruim en de chauffeur Bul is de beste chauffeur die wij tot nu toe in Indonesië zijn tegengekomen, je voelt je gelijk op je gemak. Bij aankomst in Senaru word je met open armen door Syam en Resi en hun familie verwelkomd en wordt het schema van de trekking met je doorgenomen. Hierna word je naar je hotel gebracht en krijg je de optie om nog een aantal hele mooie watervallen in de omgeving te bezoeken (zeker een aanrader!). Ook krijg je nog een uitgebreid diner dat bestaat uit een hele tafel vol geweldig lekkere lokale gerechten die door de familie van Syam zijn bereid. De volgende ochtend werden wij opgehaald (7:00), aan onze gids Awal voorgesteld en naar het startpunt van de trekking in Sembalun gebracht (8:30). Onze gids Awal heeft meer dan 10 jaar ervaring op de Rinjani en heeft ons tijdens de trekking veel verteld over de omgeving en over de trekking. Awal is heel kalm en professioneel en kon al onze vragen over de route en de planning goed beantwoorden. Hij zorgde ervoor dat wij ons tijdens de trekking op erg moment erg veilig en op ons gemak voelde. Awal voelde precies aan wanneer wij toe waren aan een rustpauze en liet ons het tempo bepalen, wat heel fijn is als je de private package neemt in plaats van in een grote groep. Bij Pos 2 (11:00) ontmoetten wij de enorm vrolijke porters die heerlijke (en veel!) lunch voor ons hadden gekookt. Tijdens de hele trekking werd met alle dieet wensen rekening gehouden zonder ernaar te hoeven vragen. Eenmaal aangekomen bij de Crater Rim (15:00) kregen wij weer een lekkere snack en was de tent al voor ons opgezet. De tent, matrassen, slaapzakken, stoelen, tafel en toilettent zijn erg schoon (soms nieuw) en van goede kwaliteit. De matrassen zijn veel dikker dan normale kampeer matjes en lagen serieus lekker! De volgende ochtend (2:30-6:00) hebben wij samen met Awal de summit beklommen, en dat was zonder hem ook nooit gelukt! Een paar meter voor de summit stond hij zelfs zijn jas af zodat wij rillend van de kou de laatste meters nog konden volbrengen, wat een held! Na de afdaling (15:00) konden wij nog fijn douchen bij Syam in Senaru, waarna wij nog kosteloos door chauffeur Bul helemaal naar Kuta (4 uur rijden!) werden gebracht. Al met al was dit echt een geweldige ervaring die door het team van Syam nog beter is geworden. Alle services en faciliteiten die zij bieden zijn net iets beter en comfortabeler dan de andere trekking bedrijven. Wij zouden Syam Trekking aan iedereen aanraden!
Best tracking organisation mount Rinjani A friend and I did the 4 days 3 nights trekking around mount Rinjani and our experience was wonderful. The guide was really great and experienced. We had 2 porters with us carrying food and shelter. They were strong and very fast, setting up tents before we arrived. The food they made was really good and they made a lot for us. Every meal something different from hamburger to classic Indonesian. All the litter that we created was collected and brought down by the guide so we kept the mountain clean. I can honestly say this was a 10/10 experience and I cannot recommend this organisation enough.

Amazing experience - recommend! In the last four days a friend and I climbed the Rinjani mountain with the company of Syam and Resi. Together with our guide (nephew of them) and two porters we climbed to the summit. I highly recommend booking with this company as they make your trekking as comfortable as possible. The porters walk ahead of you and prepare lunch/dinner for when you arrive at the break position. Moreover, everyday you will eat something different with a variety of fruit offers. One of the reasons why we booked with this company is that they take all the trash with them from the mountain, something not everybody does. Many thanks for guide Rob and the porters who made are trekking unforgettable.
Nature protecting trekking company - highly recommended! Awesome experience! 😍 Resi and Syam and their trekking crew are such wonderful people. Helpful, kind, always caring. The preparation of the trekking tour was really good. We were picked up at the harbour in Bangsal and brought to Senaru, where Syam Trekking is based. There, Syam explained the trekking route and the itinery in detail. The next morning we met our guide who was awesome as well as our porters (strongest men we have ever met 😉). While trekking, they told us so much about nature, the volcano, the locals and even more. The trekking route was beautiful and we felt save all the time. All meals that they prepared for us were just awesome. The equipment (tent, sleeping bags,...) was well cleaned and comfortable.If we come back to Rinjani one time, we will definitely hire again Syam Trekking!Highlights:Syam and Resi offer a huge variety of different trekking tours to Mt. Rinjani. You can choose between different packages (duration, starting point, additional hikes,...). Just kindly ask in advance.The day before the trekking started, Resi took us to some awesome waterfalls near Senaru (actually the best ones we saw during our travels in Indonesia!)Resi, Syam and their team really care about nature. During their hikes they collect rubbish and bring it down to the village. There, Resi and some other women manufacture lovely souvenirs from plastic.The company pays its guides and porters extra money for collecting rubbish during their hikes.The guides speak English quite fluently and well.

Best Trekking Experiance! What a trip! And I mean it only in the best way. Resi and Syam are a lovely couple who support local businesses and families. Resi has a project where she asks school children to collect plastic trash and pays them for doing it. She later uses the cleaned plastic to make beautiful bags and flowers out of them.About the trek. We booked a customised trip to the Senaru crater rim, where we stayed for two nights. On the second day we went down to see the lake and the hot springs. Unfortunately, the locals camping at the lake are leaving their trash everywhere. This showed us how much Resi‘s and Sayam‘s mission to pay the guides and porters to collect trash on the way and pay them for each full bag they collect is needed (as well as Resi‘s approach to teach school children about the impact of plastic trash on the environment).Food was great. A lot of fruits, popcorn, Nasi Goreng, currys, and even a burger with chips. You will never feel hungry during the trip for sure. The tent, sleeping bags, pillows, everything was so comfortable. We never had such a comfy experience while camping. You even get a toilet tent.The guide and the porters where really helpful and always caring about our safety. When we were enjoying our camp fire in the evenings they told us a lot about the village, the national park, and how the earthquake and the pandemic impacted their lives.I can only recommend to book with Syam Trekking! You will get much more than you pay for; stories about the village and habing a glimpse on their everyday life. Resi showed us to the waterfalls and cooked for us some local dishes. Even fried farn (no kidding; really delicious!) for us, that she showed us on the way to the waterfalls. Being invited to their home and meeting their lovely daughters made us really happy. We felt so welcomed and safe all the time (as two female travelers this is important!).Thank you very much for this experience!
