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!
