How many times do we have foods in this trek?
We can't say Hiking Mount Rinjani is totally easy. It really will spend a lot of powers. So that why we really give more attention for the foods availability. All foods, water, snacks, biscuits and all seasonings will be carried by the porters and guide. During this trek, you will have 3 times for lunch, 2 times for breakfast and 2 times for dinner. However you can ask anytime for snacks, water, biscuit from your guide and porters.
IS IT NECESSARY TO HIRE A GUIDE/TRAVEL AGENCY TO DO THIS TREK?
Not really. It depends on you. If you want, Mount Rinjani trekking can be done independently. You could hire a guide and a porter by yourself instead of going through an agency or not hire a guide at all. Although, not having a guide can be a little problematic during off season. It really depends on you. Is it your first time in Lombok? How confident are you of being able to find your way around? How pressed on time are you? If you go through an agency, it will be costlier but everything will be planned. You will only have to come, trek and return.
