Top Recommendations


As the first man ever to take trekkers to Mount Rinjani over twenty years ago, no-one knows the area and its people better than self-styled “Mr John”. As part of the “John’s Adventures” programme, he will take you on a three-day trek up the slopes of the volcano to the sacred lake that fills it crater, known as Segara Anak (“child of the sea”). After a sweaty hike, you’ll be ready for a refreshing swim.


For this trek, it is best that you do not trek solo. I went with a couple of friends and we decided to go with John’s Adventure which was a little more expensive than the others, but since there are so many scams out there, we think it would be best if we went with an already established company.

With John’s Adventure, you have a choice of doing the summit for 2 days, the summit and the lake for 3 days or 4 days. We thought we were pretty decent trekkers so we went with the 3 days package. Turned out we weren’t that great and the schedule proved to be too tight for us so we only went up the summit and opted out for the lake because we were too slow to come down from the summit. The fact that we were climbing on volcanic ashes meant that whenever we climb 2 steps up, we were going down 1 step as well. It’s like climbing up a sand dune.


A young seasoned climber, Nur has done the trek over 200 times in his 20 something years, having started as a porter which is an impressive role in itself.  Each hiking group is assigned one porter per person. Balancing between 30-45Kg of load distributed in two wicker baskets on either end of a bamboo pole, they effortlessly wind their way up and down the mountain, cigarette in hand, cell phone tunes in pocket and slip slops on feet. Slip slops? Seriously! They put me, my blisters, and my slowly abandoning toenail on my left little toe to utter shame.

To find a suitable trekking company, search the net or ask around. We found ours through John’s Adventures, the very first Rinjani trekking company. John certainly knows his adventures, as we didn’t take long to find out.


We can hire guides in the touristic city of Senggigi, although I don’t recommend it because there are many hustlers who are not authorized guides. It is best to hire them in Senaru Village, a town in the north of the base of the volcano.

I recommend John’s Adventures The Rinjani Master agency . They use equipment in very good condition and are very aware of environmental protection.


We’ve been on full-service guided treks in various places around the world. With its website full of terrible English, and minimal communication at booking time, we were a bit worried how John’s Adventure would stack up. We needn’t have been concerned. All three critical components of a guided trek — guide, equipment, and food — turned out to be excellent. Our guide Adi had good English and was experienced and fun. He’s been up the mountain over 500 times in 15 years of guiding. Our tents were spacious and brand new. The food was plentiful and varied. We splurged on the deluxe package, which also included comfortable camp chairs (photo 6), a toilet tent, and more bottled water than we could drink. And somehow we ended up with the best campsite, by far, at every location. No complaints whatsoever.

The best trekking company for Rinjani. When it comes to Rinjani, the whole experience depends on the quality of your trekking company. The cheaper companies may lack food, water, good matresses to sleep and groups may be as big as 7-8. In this case, the maximum is 4 and the service quality is extremely good.

Unforgettable hike/trek. I did a 4D3N package in September 2017 with Rinjani Master, also known as John's Adventure along with 2 of my female friends. The climb to the summit was especially challenging. I did not make it up to the summit in time for sunrise but the sunrise view on the way up was amazing as well. Our Guide Ren was a comical guy - he was hilarious and that really kept the mood high throughout the climb.

Fantastically organised trekking to the summit and the crater lake. Very friendly and hospitable staff. We were collected and dropped off from and to our hotel before and after our trip. We had more food than we could eat, altough we needed the energy, and it's impressive how they prepare such tasty nasi or curry on top of a mountain.
