The best camping experience
Highly recommended trekking company. I’m glad that I made the right decision with the Right company. We choose the sharing package for 4 days 3 night but it seems like the private package, wow !! we’ve 3 porters and 1 tour guide to serve 3 of us. They are very kind, fun, helpful and cheerful, always encourage us throughout the journey. The service provided was very good and well planned. High-quality camping equipment, serve yummy hot food, fruit, supply drinking water, biscuit and special drink once a day!

From months before my trip to the end of it, their service was top notch. The owner adhered to my every query and was very polite. My guide and porters during the hike were excellent as well. I recommend those who are looking for guides to choose Rinjani Samalas!

Rinjani Samalas is the best there is. Azmi the manager, has been very helpful and informative in all my questions and has been very accomodating of my requests for assistance. Our guide Sufi was also very patient with me and my cousin who were pretty much always the last to arrive in the group 🙂 He never left us and was very helpful especially during when I fell and hurt my knee and during the descent when most of the time my knee almost gave up on me. The porters too were very professional and fun to be with. They cooked our delicious meals and the tents were always ready whenever we needed them. All in all, Rinjani Samalas was very instrumental in helping me succeed in fulfilling my dream of climbing Mt. Rinjani. Thanks so much guys! 🙂

I travelled with my husband, brother, and parents. We have a variety of activity and physical fitness levels and went with the 2D/1N trek. The trip is fairly taxing and was probably a bit much for my parents. The guide and porters went above and beyond to help make their trek manageable. The views are absolutely worth every step and this was an amazing experience. Samalas is truly a full service operation, picking us up at the airport for a 2.5 hour drive to the mountains, arranging a hotel for the night before the trek, providing porters to carry camping equipment, a patient and friendly guide, and then taking us back to the airport even after we stayed in Senaru Village for an extra night. This is absolutely the tour company you want to choose. I would use them again without question.

A very good company
The service provided was very good and I was happy about it in general. However please make sure to agree with the manager ahead of your booking if you wish for the porter to carry some stuff for you as the latter only carry food and tents not hikers luggage. My backpack was small hence I put my necessary stuff in another bag for the porter to carry as my understanding was when I read ‘porters are included’ however the porter refused to carry it and we had to call the manager and he only accepted to carry my stuff when I offered him a very good tip. Rather than that everything was well organized.

Rinjani 4 days trek
Best experience & Your money worth for sure !
I’ve done the 4D/3nights hike and everything was just a perfect- my best experience in Indonesia !
Équipement : perfect, clean hot sleeping bags. Being cold was the thing I was the most afraid about. Their sleeping bags are so good quality, didn’t have to sleep with a pant neither pull- over. We told them what we needed more for the trek ( head lamp, jacket .).. they found it for us.
Food : delicious, never twice the same, always enough ( too much ) – same for water and snacks !
People : guide: our guide irwan was the best: experienced, encouraging and care about us. Even if he was a little sick he didn’t abandoned us ( it happens in other tours). He has a good English so we had nice talks with him. The organizer cares about the customers too I forgot a jacket at their office he found a way to bring it back to me after 2 days in kuta lombok ! He answers very fast on WhatsApp which make all the organisation very easy !
I would definitely recommend the 4 days hike so you have more time to enjoy the hotsprings – the lake – the fire in the evening.
This is a hard hike but they did everything to make it so enjoyable !

We did our trek with Samalas Rinjani and were happy with our choice (we called a few tour companies before). We especially liked our guide Supi who have lots of experience and we got along great together, getting to know him and the sasak culture through his eyes.

Rinjani with Samalas
It was a positive experience with It – our guide who is patient, helpful and caring.
We were first-time hikers with a couple from France and we were at beginner speed. We’re glad for the food, the sights and the beautiful landscapes we got to see 🙂

You won’t go wrong with Rinjani Samalas. The guides are experienced (good command of English) and the porters we had were very welcoming. 3D2N or 4D3N packages will suit most of the trekkers.

2D1N Trekking Package for Mt. Rinjani
One of the most fantastic experiences of my life as well as the people I went with. The whole team from Haerul to Id (our guide) were extremely helpful and patient throughout the entire journey.
Our guide, in particular, did way more than he was required to do but staying with two of our friends the entire time when they took a bit longer to reach the summit and then back. Throughout the entire way, he was always motivating and always willing to support us if we had any issues or ran into any trouble.
I highly recommend this company to anyone looking to conquer Mt. Rinjani.
