Porters not only carry your camping equipment and foods up and down the mountain. Arriving at each campsite long before you, they will soon set up your tent on your arrival, also boil a water for your hot drink and extra work to bring the trash on the mountain down to the village. The guide and porters will prepare your meals with quality and delicious three time a day.
The weight limit for the porters.
Remember that there is a weight limit of 25kg per porter, try to find out the weight of the porter load to see if the company you are using does not excessive load to the porter, and usually the company that sells the cheap package will give a heavy load to they are porters and this is certainly not you want.
This is the “obligatory tradition” in every Rinjani climber. We recommend a tip given to the guide and porter if you are satisfied with their service during the climb to the amount you want, there is no amount limit on it for the guide more than the porter at the end of the climb. The number of appropriate tips depends on the size of the group and how many days are spent on the mountain. Should give tips directly to the guide and porter.
