Mount Rinjani & Trekking Tour Information
Mount Rinjani (Indonesian: Gunung Rinjani) is an active volcano in Indonesia on the island of Lombok. Administratively, the mountain is located in East Lombok Regency, West Nusa Tenggara (Indonesian: Nusa Tenggara Barat, NTB). It rises to a height of 3,726 meters (12,224 ft), making it the second highest volcano in Indonesia. It is also the highest point in the Indonesian province of West Nusa Tenggara.
Adjacent to the volcano is a 6 x 8.5 km (3.7 x 5.3 mi) caldera, partially filled with a crater lake known as Segara Anak or Anak Laut (Child of the Sea), due to the color of the water. , blue as the sea (laut). This lake is approximately 2,000 meters (6,600 ft) above sea level and approximately 200 meters (660 ft) deep; the caldera also has hot springs. The Sasak tribe and Hinduism believe that the lake and the mountain are sacred, and religious activities are sometimes held at both sites. UNESCO made Mount Rinjani Caldera part of the Global Geoparks Network in April 2018. Wikipedia

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.
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!
This trek was truly amazing thanks to Syam Trekker, his beautiful wife ReShe and their wonderful team. We were so well looked after from arrival at Senegal to our departure at the boats. A family business that will welcome you into their home and community as part of the experience. I highly recommend this trek for so many reasons; - Day before the trek; ReShe took us for a walk to the Senegan Waterfalls. She showed us the local culture and chatted about the area and her community. - Night before the trek we were all welcomed into their home for the most gorgeous dinner ReShe cooked. This was an absolutely wonderful night. - Trek- the walk is challenging but so worth it. Our guide Awal was patient and kind with us and adapted the trek to suit our needs, going as fast or for us slow as we needed. The porters were amazing, the food they cooked was fabulous, as good as you’ll get in a local restaurant. I still don’t know how they carried it all - treats included lemon or ginger tea and, omg pop corn! They also cooked a surprise treat I won’t spoil for you by sharing. - A highlight for us was the emphasis this company put on caring for the environment and their community. Our guide and porters collected rubbish on the way down adding to their weight but leaving to rest stops clean of other peoples plastic and mess. Respect for Syam Trekker and his team. - Another highlight is ReShe and her recycling project. Chat with her about her work with the local children collecting rubbish to fill the plastic water bottles so they can be used as bricks to build garden walls. You will love your trek if you choose Syam Trekker and you will take away awesome memories that make the trip. 😊
Came as customers, left as friend. It was a blast to be in resort for one week. Perfect weather, perfect waves, lots of activities. I need to come again to improve my diving and climbing skills.
