We booked the 4D3N Summit tour package at the first place because we were have doubt of our (me and my crazy partner) ability to conquer Rinjani's trek and summit.
On arrival we were picked by Hallo trekker driver and it was a great journey all the way from airport to Senaru Base Camp Hotel. We were having local food and also a chance to taste 'Satay Tanjung' which made by fish meat and delicious gravy. But it was very spicy. As for me i am a fan of spicy food but not my partner.
Hans the boss great us as we jump out from our picked up vehicles. He gave us time to rest and get our mind fresh for his briefing on the adventure ahead us. Yet my partner and i (actually we are the experience hikers), feel so unprepared for the journey. As for me, i am a bit feeling restless because i know it wont be easy. Hans assured both of us will be taken extra care, from our needs to safety (included the evacuation emergency rescue, I, very concern about this matter as i experience it at Annapurna last June). It was such a relief when he mentioned about safety first above anything else.
Hams ..hamster..hamson.. the one and only the most suitable guide for two crazy hikers like us. Throughout the journey - to base camp- to summit- to crater rim- to Senaru check point. he managed to keep us safe and very patient with our crazy attitude. Yet , he, himself are crazy in the same zone like me and my partner. We mock each other, playing around, singing all the way, run down like we are in a trail race, and he was in surprise to see me and my partner cut short our journey down to Senaru. Hams you are the man, thank you for such understanding.
Our 3 porters.. did i mentioned 3.. yes ..for only 2 of us as their "Tamu", we had 3 porters. That mean, Hallo Trekker assured that their clients in a good hands. The porter plays a role as a porter and also they can really cook, with a very good presentation (a bit of culinary skills). it was so impressive. Well done "Abang" Porter.
At the end of the day, we cut short our trip only for 2 nights, we don't mind to pay as we booked earlier because at the end of the day, both me and my partner, safe and achieve our goal to conquered the Rinjani's Summit and Wilderness.
Thank you Hallo trekker team.. Hans & Hams
