The archipelago of Indonesia is rugged and exotic. A land of impressive volcanoes and the great Komodo Dragon, this section of the island chain from East Java, Bali, Lombok to Rinca is stunningly diverse. From lush tea plantations to barren volcanic summits, from the gentle Balinese culture of Ubud to the wilds of Rinca, the home of the world’s largest lizard. Our trekking adventure kicks off in the beautiful forests of Eastern Java, as we ascend to climb the active Mount Welirang and Mount Arjuna before heading to Mount Bromo for an impressive sunrise hike. Heading east we revitalize at Ubud and head to Rinca Island, the home of the fearsome Komodo Dragon.
For many the highlight of this region is an ascent of spectacular Mount Rinjani (3726m), Indonesia’s second highest volcano, semi active and held in awe by the islanders who regularly ascend the steep trail to the crater rim. We follow in their footsteps and explore the bright emerald green waters of Lake Segara Anak and attempt an early morning summit attempt to this impressive peak for fabulous views. What better way than to end this adventure than on the island of Bali.
The trip package are fully organized combination of adventure, leisure, ecotourism, and safety. We organized the trip for individual and at small group maximum of 15 persons to maximize service and safety for all participants.

About the Trek
You will encounter steep ascents and descents on a fairly good system of tracks whilst on the trek.. A good level of fitness is required. Please contact us if you would like some suggestions in relation to pre trip training or if you are concerned about your fitness level.
All meals will be prepared by your guide and porters on open fires and fuel stoves. Your porters will exhibit super human strength in getting all your camping gear up the mountain and is a constant source of amazement to trekkers! Expect traditional Indonesian style rice based meals. The meals are excellent relative to what you might expect on a typical western style commercial trek. The staff take great pride in their cooking skills and presentation of your meal. Any offers to help are welcome but not expected.
All your camping gear is supplied but if you want to take your own light weight sleeping bag or sleeping mat that’s fine. This can be arranged at your pre trip briefing in Bali. Most trekkers will carry a small pack or day pack with personal items such as clothes, toiletries and photography gears. Keep the gear to a minimum and don’t take anything up the mountain that you don’t have to!
