Trail was DEFINITELY an expert level hike. You’ll want ankle hiking boots, and atleast 2 camel bags of water full per person. It gets steep and HOT. I’m 21 and in excellent health, and had to stop every 5-8 minutes or so when I got near the top. The first 1/4 is dense jungle vegetation , lots of vines with thorns and overgrown shrubbery. A guide isn’t necessary. Lots of fun.

This is a great hike! We got to the rim and the view was obstructed by cloud cover, but that ended up making for a spectacular evening. You felt like you were literally sleeping in the clouds. The view in the morning was beautiful. This isn't an easy hike by any means and is pretty steep at times. They recommend you use a guide which provided us with porters. At first the idea felt strange, but it actually really added to the experience. They were wonderful and very fun to be around. We stayed at the Rinjani Lighthouse Lodge before and after our trek and I highly recommend it.

When you reached the rim, The Majestic Beauty will take your breath away. I used Rinjani Hero as my trekking guide they are an amazing company well organized. They will organize all your needs, transportation from your hotel to your next destination and they will make your hiking a pleasure with an abundance of food and nice accommodations at the rim

Hiking to Mt. Gede is my first 'real' hiking experience. Hiked from Cibodas basecamp at 7am and camped at Kandang Batu at 12pm. We prefer Kandang Batu post due to easy access to water, less crowded, and flatter terrain. The trade-off is, you have to go earlier for summiting if you want to catch sunrise on the top. Started our summit attack at 3am, but reached the summit at 7am. However, it was a great experience!

Its about 8 km to Ranu Kumbolo lakr, from Ranupane. Small trails for 2 person, a breathing filter masker is recommended since dry soil dust comes from the trakcer feom feon of you and everywhere. A rewarding trip when you reach ranukumbolo.. view spectacular

I’m from Miami, FL where the earth is flat and this was my first ever hike. I don’t know what I was thinking I have no business hiking stuff like this. It took us about 8-9 hours to get to the camping site. If I could have broken this hike up into two or three days maybe I wouldn’t be so bitter. This hike made me want to die. It was foggy, cold, and wet 90% of the time. You only get a clear view for a few hours in the morning. It’s a shame the mountain is full of trash, “trash mountain” we referred to it. It’s so darn beautiful though, wish it was cleaner. Would I do it again? Never in a million years, but also glad I did it.

Incredible hike with breathtaking sun rise views at the summit. Completed this hike in two nights/three days, however, there are different options for however many nights you’d like to spend. Incredible crater views, rocky trails, hot springs and more. The last few km to the summit are incredibly difficult (especially with a 2am wake up). The trail is very steep and can be narrow at times, use caution. We had a range of weather throughout the journey but it was sunny with light rain for the most part. Warning: there is tons of waste all throughout the hike (including human waste) as none gets packed down. Very heartbreaking to see, but try to do your part and don’t contribute to the waste.
