Your Rinjani trekking guide, and porter will take second place after your fitness level and mental determination, in terms of important factors contributing to your success on the trip, including your comfort and safety while climbing Rinjani Mountain’s summit.
During your Rinjani trek adventure, your guide will be your advisor, he will take you to the top, and he will drop you safely down again. It’s important that you work with him and pay attention to his advice.

All trails up the mountain are led by well trained and qualified guides. Each of our guides has been selected over the years, based on experience, Mount Rinjani reviews, safety records, and feedback from previous clients. Over the years, they have contributed enormously to a 100% success rate and have successfully guided more than 1,000 happy Adez Adventure clients to Mount Rinjani.

Porters not only carry your camping equipment and food up and down the mountain. Arriving at each campsite long before you, they will soon set up your tent on your arrival, boil water for your hot drink, and do extra work to bring the trash on the mountain down to the village. The guide and porters will prepare your meals with quality and deliciousness three times a day.
The weight limit for the porters
Remember that there is a weight limit of 25kg per porter. Try to find out the weight of the porter’s load to see if the company you are using does not give an excessive load to the porter. Usually, the company that sells the cheap package will give a heavy load to the porters, and this is certainly not what you want.
Tipping for the guide and porter
How much do you tip your porter, and guide? This is the “obligatory tradition” for every Rinjani climber. We recommend a tip be given to the guide and porter if you are satisfied with their service during the climb; there is no amount limit on it for the guide more than the porter at the end of the climb. The number of appropriate tips depends on the size of the group and how many days are spent on the mountain. Should give tips directly to the guide and porter.
