i booked a 3 days 2 nights package with hajar trekking. it was a very pleasant journey to the top of the mountains. firstly, the administration of the trip was well coordinated from the airport to the guest house, where there was running warm water and also a comfortable bed for rest. Secondly, my guide, Agus was very helpful and pleasant to converse with during the entire trip. He even offered to carry my bag when i was tired (don't abuse that haha). He offered a lot of advise on how to scale the obstacles and also was watchful of my safety during this entire trip. Thirdly, my porters, Rahim and Rijal were great cooks during this entire trip, serving up fried bananas even in the middle of the mountains. They are extremely resourceful and can carry heavy weights while trekking through tough terrain in flip flops. Overall, i would recommend Agus, Rahim and Rijal if you are taking the trip. it was relaxing but also tough (in terms of pacing up the mountain). Thank you Pak Hajar for organising such a memorable trip for me. i will definitely go there again!
Just completed a 3D2N package, and we had an amazing experience overall. Our guide, Agus, took very good care of us, and our 3 porters also provided excellent service including a toilet tent, comfortable sleeping bags and pillow, chairs & table for meals, and delicious meals and snacks throughout the 3 days. Communication with Hajar was also extremely smooth and easy. Would highly recommend Hajar Trekking and our guide Agus for the best experience hiking Mount Rinjani.
Really well organised tour. Hajar was very quick to respond to any queries prior to the tour. Coats and trekking poles were provided and the porters made awesome meals! Heri (our guide) was also great and provided a great service getting us to the summit in great humour! Heri went above and beyond - even making a video of our mountain adventure which he sent over to us which was edited very well. Overall, a truly magical experience!
Probably one of the best hiking trips I’ve done and made possible because of the amazing service we received from everyone involved including - Mr Hajar himself for the planning then Mr Ari who was a fabulous guide and ensured everyone stayed motivated and safe throughout the trip. His constant guidance on how to climb, how to descent, pack of snacks always ready for tired moments but most importantly great communicator and calm in rough situations. Special thanks to our porters who were super human like (including Mr Subu and Mr Pagi) carrying 30kg each at least on their shoulders over 3 days of steep hikes making possible we receive the best food, sleeping bags and camps. Overall, what a fabulous experience which wouldn’t have been possible without this service from Hajar trekkers.
Our experience with Hajar and his team was outstanding from start to finish. We were picked up from Senggigi and driven 2 hours to their hostel in Senaru. There we met Hajar who gave us a briefing of how our 3d2n trek would transpire. He was very friendly and over the course of our experience, all of his staff spoke highly of him and how kind he is as a boss. The lads in the homestay were very attentive and friendly - Jus, Asriel and Gen (sorry, probably all spelt wrong). As we had a lot of free time, Dadang took us to see some local waterfalls, which were really impressive and beautiful. As well as being a great guide for that activity, he gave us loads of helpful info about what we would experience over the next few days. The accommodation was really nice, important as it's good to get a decent night's sleep before the trek. The next morning we met our team and began the trek. Our guide, Usman, was amazing from start to finish. He adapted to our pace, kept us informed throughout the trek and was just brilliant company for the few days. Our porters, Adi and Aing, are heroes. How they lift all that stuff over that terrain is mind-blowing. We didn't have to lift a finger for the 3 days. They set up up our tents, toilet tent etc. and consistently cooked us amazing meals to keep us going. They were great craic too! Once the trek was done, Bayu the driver took us to our next destination, and like the rest of the staff, was a really nice guy. Choose Hajar and his team for trekking Rinjani, you won't regret it!
