The tour we took
+ 5D4N Rinjani Trek On Deluxe Plus Service with John’s Adventure (30 May 15 – 3 Jun 15) – Click here to download tour detail
+ Price: USD 345/pax (we had a group of 3)
+ Price include: airport pickup, 1 night hotel stay (dinner not included), 1 tour guide, 3 porters, mountain entrance fee, food and drinks for 4-day climb, airport send-off
+ Tip to guide and porters: USD 5-10/guide/day.

+ If you need extra porters, USD 25/day per porter.
+ Review of tour package: Overall a very nice experience. Capable and very kind tour guides and porters. John is very responsive to my questions before and after the booking.

How’s Rinjani climb
It is tiring but totally doable for beginners, proof: I was able to drag myself to the summit (much later than my group though).

Our tour guide taught us this Italian phrase: “piano, piano”, meaning “slowly slowly” or “little by little”. We said it a lot during the climb. I love it.

Get to know about “summer” vs. “winter” milky way. Note down later.

The Summer Milky Way is brighter and wider in appearance than the Winter counterpart, mainly because we’re looking in toward the center of our galaxy at this time of year.
