Client Testimonials

Best Trekking Experience!

What a trip! And I mean it only in the best way. Resi and Syam are a lovely couple who support local businesses and families. Resi has a project where she asks school children to collect plastic trash and pays them for doing it. She later uses the cleaned plastic to make beautiful bags and flowers out of them.

About the trek.

We booked a custumised trip to the Senaru crater rim, where we stayed for two nights. On the second day we went down to see the lake and the hot springs. Unfortunately, the locals camping at the lake are leaving their trash everywhere.

This showed us how much Resi‘s and Syam‘s mission to pay the guides and porters to collect trash on the way and pay them for each full bag they collect is needed (as well as Resi‘s approach to teach school children about the impact of plastic trash on the environment).

Food was great.

A lot of fruits, popcorn, Nasi Goreng, currys, and even a burger with chips. You will never feel hungry during the trip for sure. The tent, sleeping bags, pillows, everything was so comfortable. We never had such a comfy experience while camping. You even get a toilet tent.

Mount Rinjani guide and the porters where really helpful and always caring about our safety. When we were enjoying our camp fire in the evenings they told us a lot about the village, the national park, and how the earthquake and the pandemic impacted their lives.

I can only recommend to book with Syam Trekking! You will get much more than you pay for; stories about the village and having a glimpse on their everyday life. Resi showed us to the waterfalls and cooked for us some local dishes.

Even fried farn (no kidding; really delicious!) for us, that she showed us on the way to the waterfalls. Being invited to their home and meeting their lovely daughters made us really happy. We felt so welcomed and safe all the time (as two female travelers this is important!).

Thank you very much for this experience!
