Frequently Asked Questions
The best months for a trekking on Mount Rinjani are from April to December. In fact, officially you can only book your trekking for these months. This has everything to do with the fact that Mount Rinjani National Park is closed in the rainy season, which lasts from January to March. Although there are providers who nevertheless have access, we recommend avoiding the mountain in the rainy season.
Do you make it to your destinations as planned? Often this depends on the unpredictable weather in the mountains. However, it can also depend on your own physical condition.
Mount Rinjani is principally for everyone, but some physical condition can make trekking lot easier and more enjoyable.

Another good idea is to walk a lot of stairs. This will especially help for the first day, when you conquer 1500 meters of elevation. Make sure you are well prepared. This is important for your safety, but also for that of your team. Make sure you start six months in advance with an hour’s hike twice a week.
It is normal to tip porters, guides and chefs. Opinions on how many are divided. We recommend reserving an amount of IDR 200K for porters. A guide will often get a little more and will expect about IDR 300K. Converted this is an amount of approximately USD 20. Be generous. It will be appreciated.
