About the company

We have taken more of our guests to the summit of Mount Rinjani than any other trekking company.

When it comes to experience, Mount Rinjani Volcano Trek’s reputation says it all. With over 20 years of experience in taking guests to beautiful Mount Rinjani, we are seen as the “go to trekking company” for those wanting to achieve the ultimate in volcano treks. The safety of our guests is our first concern, we will never put the safety of our guests at risk, and we will never allow guests to put themselves in danger. The use of only professional and licensed mountain guides (licensing is from the Mount Rinjani National Park) means that our guides are always aware of the changing conditions of the environment, the paths, and even the “mood” of the volcano, so guests can be assured that their treks will see them to the top and back again safely. Mount Rinjani Volcano Treks was founded by a local porter turned mountain guide, when he realised that rather than just taking visitors to the volcano, a better approach was required… to inform visitors of the cultural and historical significance of Mount Rinjani, of the plants and animals which call it home, and to make their visit something to remember for the rest of their lives.  All of our guides and porters have a very special connection to the mountain, and they are only too happy to share it with you.

Mount  Rinjani       Volcano  Treks
Mount Rinjani Volcano Treks is based in the village of Senaru, which is perched on the very northern slopes of Mount Rinjani, not an office 80 kilometres away in the city of Mataram. All treks are coordinated from our local office, using local resources, locally grown food, and of course local people. What makes us special?  Mount Rinjani Volcano Treks are committed not only to our local community, but to offering sustainable operations that take the local environment into consideration at all times. We were one of the first businesses to adopt the motto “Take nothing but photographs, Leave nothing but footprints”… we carry out all rubbish, leaving nothing behind that will adversely affect the environment and the experience for future visitors.  We recognise that Mount Rinjani must be respected, and so guests are required to carry out every piece of rubbish, right down to cigarette butts.  If you carry it in, you must carry it out.
