Reviewed By RockyMountainDiva - Rocky Mountains

Base Camp arranged a 3-day tour/trek from Jakarta. From the beginning, communication was excellent. We exchanged a few e-mails and decided on a trip. The trek was perfect for our needs - excellent planning on their part. Instead of camping at the crowded, trashy camp between Pangrango and Gede, our tent was pitched in a beautiful field of Edelweiss on top of Mt Pangrango, next to a spring/stream with clear fresh water. Our guide Obe spoke excellent English and made sure we had breaks when we needed them, and that all of our comfort requirements were met. The food, purchased in local towns or cooked during the trek by our guide, was some of the tastiest food we had in Indonesia. We are gluten-intolerant and Obe always asked what we could eat or not eat. One of the best things was a delicious snack of tapioca-coated fried banana.
The guide and porter seemed to work very well together, and on the way down Mt Gede my husband and I hiked at different rates. The guide and porter split up so we wouldn't be hiking on our own.
The tents were spacious and stayed dry during the rain. However, I am thin and it is difficult for me to stay warm when not moving, and even with the silk bag liner we brought and all my clothing on (long johns, long shirt, light jacket, wool socks, hat) I was a little chilled in the sleeping bag during the night. And the sleeping pad was thinner than we are used to so we had to move our bodies around the bumps in the ground to get comfortable. But overall the trip exceeded our expectations.
When we return to Indonesia, and we most likely will, we plan to arrange another trek with Base Camp.

These stables on the edge of greater Jakarta have several ensuite rooms which are comfy and clean. Rates are v reasonable. Good for couple of nights with riding lessons during day. Simple breakfast included. Take your own toiletries but towels are provided. Lovely big pool and poolside bar (check both are open). Riding lessons were good and horses well cared for. Instructors were good with kids and had good English. Grooms will let kids tack up ponies and groom them if you ask. A couple of big dogs at the stables but they were very friendly. Staff were helpful. Upstairs restaurant has good views of riding rings and is pleasant for lunch or dinner. Simple menus of burgers, pastas etc. Cold beer.
