All meals will be prepared by your guide and porters on open fires and fuel stoves. Your porters will exhibit superhuman 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 takes 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 lightweight sleeping bag or sleeping mat that’s fine. This can be arranged at your pre-trip briefing in Senggigi Beach [our office]. Most trekkers will carry a small pack or day pack with personal items such as clothes, toiletries, and photography gear. Keep the gear to a minimum and don’t take anything up the mountain that you don’t have to!
