Overview

Book
Indonesia is located at the junction of four tectonic plates and has more active volcanoes than any other country. Our journey through this amazing landscape of living mountains takes us from island to island, from Java to Bali and onward to Lombok. En route, we experience the impressive diversity of the Indonesian archipelago, its vegetation varying from tropical rainforest to dry steppe, with colourful wildlife and a rich cultural tapestry. Our exciting programme of trekking includes the ascent of 5 major volcanoes, starting out with Merapi (2930m) on Java, then the iconic Bromo and Kawa Ijen where we can see the famous sulphur miners. Crossing to Bali we climb Mt Batur (1717m) and have some time in the lovely town of Ubud before crossing on a fast ferry to the island of Lombok. Here we make a memorable 3-day traverse over the summit of Rinjani (3726m), trekking via the stunning Segara Anak crater lake. We end the holiday back on Bali at the laid-back resort of Sanur, with its palm fringed white sand beaches and mix of placid and surf shores the perfect place for a final chill out before flying home.

The land of the Living Mountains is a fantastic way to have a taste of Indonesia. A great mix of culture and adventure travel. The quiet breaks between the treks allow us to rest in the hotels or go for a stroll around the villages. The accommodation and food had a high standard and the vast majority of the meals were based on local ingredients and cuisine. All the guides had excellent english and the whole trip was very well organised. The only downside is the long car transfers (particularly in Java) and the more popular vulcanos can be very busy and crowded at times.

I enjoyed this trip. The volcanoes are fascinating and very beautiful, and the company has done a good job of selecting ones that are all quite different from one another so the hikes are quite varied. (Note that the hikes on Ijen (2 hrs) and Batur (about 3 hrs) are much shorter than indicated in the itinerary, so there was actually less hiking than I had hoped for). There was a nice mix of culture with the various temples mixed in, and our guides were fantastic and took amazing care of us. Ubud is fun and I highly recommend you visit Gunung Kawi temple on your free day. On the downside, you should be prepared for the fact that there are some very long travel days, that the volcanoes are very heavily visited, and that you might not get to do the Rinjani hike (it erupted the night before we arrived and we were only permitted to do a portion of the 3 day hike). All in all, a good trip that I would recommend.

The trip was excellent, with some minor problems that I am sure will be taken care of . The food was always good, most of the times beyond expectations, the hotels and home-stays were according to the descriptions in the brochure, some really luxurious, others more basic, but we always had the guides being sure we had what we needed to be as comfortable as possible. As always, the guides and drivers were the best, very professional and friendly and always available to answer our questions or to solve any problem. I am so happy with this trip, that I am already looking for the next one!!!!

This was a great and unique trip combining travel, trekking and relaxing. As an optional activity I definitely recommend snorkeling. Our guides were great and kept us well informed especially during the period where Rinjani was closed due to earlier eruptions. Indonesia is a great place with lots to see, this trip does well in providing 3 islands to visit. Totally recommended to anyone who wants to try a slightly different trekking trip.
