3D2N track with Syam trekker

We zijn 3 dagen weg geweest met onze gids Rob. Hij kon ons veel vertellen over de natuur, omgeving en geschiedenis. Bijzonder aardige en behulpzame jongen van 21. De trek was behoorlijk zwaar, maar ontzettend goed geregeld. Bij elke pauze post stond het eten (wat erg goed was) binnen 5 minuten klaar. Chapeau voor de sterke porters. Absolute aanrader om via Syam trekker deze tocht te doen, omdat we gezien hebben dat andere organisaties het minder voor elkaar hadden.

Experiencia inmejorable

Hemos hecho el trekking de 3N/2N con Syam Trekker y ha sido una experiencia increíble. Esta compañía te cuida muchísimo, nos ayudaron en los momentos difíciles, la comida estaba espectacular de rica, y muy abundante, los colchones para dormir comodísimos y el staff maravilloso. Sin duda la mejor elección para hacer el trekking del Rinjani. Si repito, que no sé porque es muuuuy duro, lo haría con ellos.
