    Hi Brandon!

    Thanks so much for sharing your experience with the world, was a pleasure to read. I’m so sad to learn that I most likely won’t be able to experience this trek in January when I visit; should have done my homework!

    Merry Xmas & greetings from Australia!

    Hi Brandon,

    Great review of Mount Rinjani Trek. Why do you recommend not doing the trek with John’s trekking company? Unfortunately I have already booked with them for August 2015!

    Thanks for the great review, thanks to you we have decided to book a 4D/3N trek. But, I found Green Rinjani difficult to deal with, up to the point where his arrogance became a worry. Plus, there are now some negative feedbacks about GR on Tripadvisor, so I have cancelled my 4D/3N trip with him and I have booked with another company. I shall bring bags to collect rubbish.

    Sounds like a great adventure! Thank you for all the helpful information. My fiancé and I will be doing this trek in August. How far in advance did you book your hike in Senaru? We will probably arrive in Lombok only a day or two before we would like to go on the trek. We would like to book when we arrive in person, but it is high season. What are your thoughts?

    Hi Brandon, your trek has definitely inspired me to enquire with Green Rinjani for a trek this November.. Just wondering what you did with all your luggage while on the trek? I’m guessing you didn’t lug it up there with you!

    Your blog has been so helpful as my fiancé and I are planning to torture ourselves with this trek on our honeymoon next month Question for you, how cold does it get at night? I know you mentioned bringing layers and trying to decide which jacket to bring. Do you know what the temps were there at night? We are not going to be going up to the summit. Thanks in advance!

    Hi, thank you so much for the awesome guide. My group will be doing the same trekking program Green Rinjani in a couple of days, we are wondering how much we should tip the guide and porters.

    We had just completed the trip with lhuna adventure in mt Rinjani, we had opted for the 4 days 3 nights package instead of the standard 3 days 2 night package as we have a few ladies with us in a group.

    We arrived in the island with Lun’s driver awaiting for us. Then he got us for dinner and send us up to our first night accommodation.

    In overall although there is some hiccup, I find that the overall team that (lhuna adventure) owned Lun had arranged for us was really good. The meals were well prepared with complete meal including fruits and tea. The porter and guide were really helpful throughout the trip. And, the porter and guide had even assisted to carry some of our friends on path that was really difficult to hike. Best praise for porter Surya, he had been real helpful through out the whole journey.

    Things that could be improved on would be the communication between the guide and us, the first night accommodation as the water pressure is a bit low and hot water is not stable and the encouragement from the guide instead of being pushy. All in all we would still strongly recommend Lhuna Adventure if you would like to do a hike to Rinjani he is really helpful and responsive. He had even assisted us in planning our journey to Gili island after the hike. (www.lhuna-adventure.com)
