Surya from 'Senaru Trekking' was a fantastic tour guide. 2 of our party of 4 did the 2 day/ 1 night summit tour and the other 2 did the crater rim only. We all thoroughly enjoyed the trek.We met a... more »
I'm traveling solo for about 10 months, a trip I've been saving up and working hard for the past couple of years. I'm obviously traveling on a budget, so doing the summit trek was a splurge, but I... more »

What an awesome experience. Senaru Trekking was very accommodating the entire time. Our guide, Bayu, made sure we were comfortable, safe, and told us about the mountain as we completed our glorious 4 day, 3 night trek. Would totally book with them again!
We had a perfect experience with senaru trekking. We took thé 2D1N to the summit and nothing to change. Juls who is the owner helped us ans was very helpful and à eager to answer to all of our questionsq The guide Awan was à proper helpful man as well as the carriers, kudos to those men. Last but not least the food and gears provided during the trekk were top notch. At their price there are no better options. Mark
I can only agree with the review before me: perfect organization (equipment support/accommodation before trip/ Tour explanation/pick up and drop off) and excellent execution (4 porters and 2 guides für 5 guests, all rubbish taken with them, excellent food, more than enough to drink with extra coke sprite and hot tea for every meal, clean and newish tents and sleeping bags, great guiding). Also great their eco-incentive: collect a bag full of rubbish down the mountain yourself to get a 5% refund of the trips cost! The only little flaw was the camping spot on the second night because the ground was not even at all and we were sliding downwards within the tent. But hey, I mean we are on the mountain not in a hotel.
We booked a 3 Days / 2 Nights tour online from Gili Air. We asked that we could start the trip the same day and not just do the waterfalls on the first day. Jul was very helpful in making this happen. We took the first boat at 7:30am from Gili Air to Bangsal where our driver was already waiting for us. He then took us to the trekking office at Senaru where we met our guide Hendri and our two porters. After a quick breakfast we were ready to start trekking at around 10am. I would suggest this way to anyone going up Rinjani who doesn't have a lot of time during their vacation as you save one full day that would otherwise only be used to visit nearby waterfalls. We, however made it to the Crater rim before sunset (we did have a good place though). The 3 day trip in general is exhausting but very beautiful. Especially the second day is grueling as you have to wake up at 2am and make your way up a really tall vulcano. Fortunately we had booked with Senaru Trekking. Our porters and our guide did and amazing job taking care of us and Hendri even helped us with some of our weight during our trip. He really is a great guide to have! Speaking from experience we made in Guatemala when climbing Vulcano Acatenango, we highly recommend spending a little bit more money and going with Senaru Trekking. This vulcano experience was much more comfortable than when we took a cheap trekking company in Guatemala. We could also see here on Rinjani that some of the cheaper companies had very big groups (around 15 persons) with only 3-4 porters and one guide. Moreover, they had run out of water on the first day. We, on the other hand, had plenty of water and the food that our porters made for us every day was better than some of the Warung food we had this far. Plus, Senaru Trekking is still cheaper than the most expensive companies that we saw (like Green Rinjani) but still has the same quality. So, all in all it was an amazing experience. And chosing Senaru Trekking and Henri was the best choice we could make. We highly recommend using this company if you want to really enjoy the trip!
It is worth taking the time to do the full tour in 4 days and 3 nights. Excellent experience with our guide Dani and valorous porters who prepared great meals. A big thank you!
