Meet your host
Rik first came to Mount Tambora as an archaeologist, hoping to uncover the hidden treasures of the lost kingdom of Tambora. During his excavation work, he became captivated by the beauty and mystery of the volcano. He was fascinated by the stories of the long-lost volcano that caused the greatest eruption in history. When Rik realized that no one was hiking Mount Tambora, he decided to start Visit Tambora to share his passion for the volcano with others. He now leads guided hikes to the summit, where he shares his knowledge of the volcano's history and geology. He also offers cultural tours of the surrounding villages, where guests can learn about the local people and their way of life.

Is mount tambora available mid October?
Soh Yu Ming, 19 Aug 2023
Hello Soh Yu Ming, due to the monsoon season in Indonesia in October, we won't be operating the trip. It will reopen around March.
Selamat Pagi, can we get picked up from Laubuan Jambu instead of Bima? And do you have any cold weather clothing available for rent?

Hey Molly, the host can arrange a pick-up from Laubuan Jambu with an additional cost. As for clothing, they can purchase it for you, and you can reimburse them. Kindly send us a query at so that we can assist you further with your request.
