Mt Rinjani Trek + Yoga Spa Treatment

Rugged and adventurous, the Indonesian island of Lombok is growing in popularity for intrepid travellers. Gunung Rinjani, the country's second highest volcano, rises in the north, presenting a unique experience with breathtaking scenery. Concluding with yoga and a luxury spa treatment, this trip is a truly unforgettable experience that can be enjoyed again... and again... again!

Traversing the Lombok Island track up Mt Rinjani is one of the greatest kept secrets in all of Indonesia. Compared to more famous tracks, Rinjani offers a vast array of scenery from waterfalls to rain forest, wildlife, hot springs, caves, pristine lakes and more.

Furthermore, add-in the historic Indonesian culture and the fact you’re trekking up a volcano, this trek is truly a trip you will not forget in a hurry. Although the dominant geographical phenomenon, its peak is rarely seen from the lowlands, as is often shrouded in clouds.

Following your journey taking in the extraordinary beauty and eerie isolation that is Mount Rinjani; the second highest mountain in Indonesia outside Irian Jaya, you will be forever grateful that Getaway Trekking opted to include a short stay at a 5 star resort in Senggigi for sunrise Yoga sessions and luxury Spa treatment.

If you’ve been looking for an experience that challenges you physically and mentally but rewards your personal efforts immediately by way of pampering… look NO further than the Mt Rinjani Trek + Yoga Spa Treatment experience.

Are the departure dates listed guaranteed?

No. A minimum 10 people are required, per date listed, to guarantee the departure.

In the event that your preferred departure date does not acquire the minimum numbers required to depart, an alternate date will be offered or a full refund of your deposit will be made available to you immediately.

What type of shape (level of fitness) do I need to be in to complete this trek?

Due to the various terrains, and weather conditions ranging from Dry and Humid to wet, you will require a high level of fitness to complete this trek. Whilst you do not need to be an Olympic athlete, the more prepared you are the better you will be out on the trek. Multiple Inclines and declines will test weary legs.

What is weather and temperature like?

The temperature during trekking could be between 28-33 degrees Celsius. Sometimes during the night could drop to 11 degrees, in Plawangan around 1 degrees Celsius and during Summit could drop to -2 degrees Celsius.

Will somebody come to pick me up at the airport upon my arrival?

Due to the various terrains, and weather conditions ranging from Dry and Humid to wet, you will require a high level of fitness to complete this trek. Whilst you do not need to be an Olympic athlete, the more prepared you are the better you will be out on the trek. Multiple Inclines and declines will test weary legs.

Is it safe to trek in Indonesia?

Absolutely safe, however we do not recommend this trip during Independence day of Indonesia (17 August): 15 – 19 August.

Is it possible to reserve a trip now and pay deposit later or do I HAVE to pay deposit at booking/reservation?

The trip will be confirmed only when we receive the completed final booking form and deposit payment. You can pay the balance of the money 60 days prior to your departure.

Is there a possibility of getting a single room for the Senggigi portion of the trip? If so how much extra will this cost?

Yes! Absolutely – the single supplement will be at a cost of AUD550 per person.

What type of food is provided on the trek? Do you provide snacks or should I take my own?

The meals will be a combination of Indonesian and western style food standard for tourists, and prepared by our cook. We will provide basic snacks, but you should bring your own favourite snacks.

How much spending money should I take with me?

Local beers or snacks can sometimes be purchased from within the campsite during the trekking component of this trip. There is no other opportunity to purchase items during the 3 day trek. When in Lombok you will require money for all dinners, as these are not included as part of this package and any souvenirs you may wish to purchase. Lombok has ATM machines where you can withdraw cash if required. The hotels also accept Visa and MasterCard. We would suggest USD400.00 would cover this trek.

Can I charge my digital camera or other equipment on the trek?

NO, unless you have your own portable solar cell charger.

Is there any phone service available out on the track?

No, not really. There may be very poor service available in some of the camp sites, but this cannot be guaranteed. Local service providers in Indonesia are XL & Simpati Telkomsel

Do I need to tip my local guide (and porters if applicable)? How much would that be?

Whilst not mandatory it is highly expected by the guide team. The guide team comprises of the English speaking g lead guide, the porters & the cook. As a recommendation we suggest:

  • Lead Guide – USD 15 – 20 per day
  • Porters and cooks – USD 10 per day
  • Drivers – USD10 per day

Of course this is only a recommendation and you are most welcome to base your tipping on your experience on the trip.

What opportunities will I have to shower along the trek?

Whilst on the trek, shower options are limited however when you are in the Lake Camp site a dip in the Natural Hot Spring Lake is a must for recovery after reaching the summit!

What do I do when I need to go to the toilet?

Bring your own toilet papers. We will provide toilet tent with a hole in the soil and bury the waste.

Do I carry my own pack or does a porter carry my pack?

Porters only carry the trek equipment and logistic. The additional cost for extra porter to carry client packs is USD 25 / porter / day (1 porter for 1 client).
