We’re about to cross another milestone at Indiahikes by starting our first trek in Indonesia. This is the Mt. Rinjani trek, which takes you to the second-highest volcano in Indonesia. It is situated on an island right next to Bali. 

Izzat Yaganagi, Head of Experiential Learning at Indiahikes will be leading this trek in collaboration with Trekkers@Heart, our partners in Singapore. Izzat is presently on her way to the Lombok International Airport, which is closest to the start point of the trek. 

“I am excited and nervous about it because this is the first time we are going to run this trek. It is a big first step,” Izzat shares with a smile. 

In this first trek, Izzat is looking forward to giving an Indiahikes Experience to the entire team while trekking to Mt. Rinajani. At the same time, she is looking forward to learn from the trekking community in Indonesia. 

Despite the challenges of organising a trek in another country, we are incredibly excited to see how the Mt. Rinjani trek pans out.

Our Mt. Rinjani trek is all set to begin on September 2nd. We will post all relevant updates from this international trek right here.
