Rinjani Cable Car : Investors will soon realize the construction of a 10 kilometer (km) cable car in Air Berik Village (one of mount Rinjani Trekking Route), North Batukliang District, Central Lombok. The construction of the cable car around the Mount Rinjani area is targeted to be completely constructed ahead of the upcoming 2021 MotoGP Mandalika.

Head of the NTB Environment and Forestry Service (LHK), Ir. Madani Mukarom, B.Sc.F, M.Si said that the cable car construction plan had received approval from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry. Madani said the construction of the cable car was not in the core zone of Mount Rinjani National Park (TNGR). Madani emphasized that Pelawangan (Rinjani Crater Rim), Segara Anak Lake and Summit Rinjani are the core zones of Rinjani National Park.

Based on applicable laws and regulations that in the core zone is prohibited and forbidden by law to build any facilities and infrastructure. So this is what everyone must understand first.

“Thus the construction of this cable car is not located in the Mount Rinjani National Park. (The location) is in the tourism service utilization block in the Tahura Region and protected forest, “Madani said, confirmed Suara NTB, Sunday, January 19, 2020.

Madani said that the start was from Karang Sidemen, Batukliang Utara District, to the protected forest area at the top. The cable car is built along approximately 10 km. He explained that the cable car is analogous to the connecting highway from Pesugulan to Sembalun or Sajang – Sembalun, all of which were built in protected forest areas. In the past, the process of building and widening the road was full of criticism and challenges, but now it can be enjoyed by everyone.

Madani also explained the technical construction of this cable car construction all the facilities and infrastructure were transported by helicopter. And then the system continued from pole to pole. Thus minimizing the opening of forest areas. “The process towards development will be carried out various environmental technical studies and FGD (focus group discussions) with the parties,” he explained.

Based on the results of the initial survey of the LHK (Department of Environment and Forestry) Service team and the Central Lombok District Government, it is known that from the cable car stop to the lips of Lake Segara Anak or Pelawangan Barat the slope is quite gentle, and can be reached by walking 3-4 hours. So this pathway is suitable for the elderly or elderly. So that the existence of this cable car can help parents or the elderly who want to enjoy the Segara Anak Fund.

Madani explained that the route from the cable car stop to the top of Rinjani is further than the usual route for climbers. The cable car stop route is West Crater Rim – Senaru Crater Rim – Segara Anak lake – Sembalun Crater Rim – Summit Rinjani. Or about the same route as Aik Berik. “The length of the climb was precisely a challenge for militant climbers. This cable car enthusiast is predominantly middle-executive. Surely they are curious to see Segara Anak more clearly, “he said.

So they need to walk for about 3-4 hours from the location of the cable car stop location to Pelawangan Barat with 1-2 porters to carry it. In contrast to ordinary climbers who have been using a porter for 2-4 tourists or climbers. So that the existence of this cable car, said Madani It would actually add jobs for porters. Madani added that the existence of this cable car will only increase employment opportunities for porters there.

‘’ This is an opportunity to absorb more of the work of the porters. Not to mention the traders at the departure point, ‘he said. Madani added that the construction of a cable car will not damage the existing forest or ecosystem. Because the cable car is about 60 meters high. Meanwhile, the height of trees in the forest passed between 20-30 meters. Now, it is expected that the preparation of an Environmental Impact Assessment (AMDAL) and other permits can be completed in three months. So that targets can be pursued thoroughly before the upcoming MotoGP 2021 implementation. ‘’ So that along with MotoGP, there are new destinations that people see too. For MotoGP and Formula 1 once a year. If it’s Lake very day, ” he said.

“All climbing routes of Mount Rinjani are closed. As of October 20, 2019 until an undetermined deadline,” said daily executor of Mount Rinjani National Park Dwi Pangestu when asked for confirmation on Sunday (10/20/2019 : ).

The decision was taken by Mount Rinjani National Park Hall to maximize the handling of forest fires and ensure a safe hiking trail. Closing the route (Senaru, Sembalun) is also to maintain the safety and security of visitors and prevent fires from spreading to other areas.

The fire at Mount Rinjani was known to occur in the Senaru route on Saturday (19/10), which then spread to the Sembalun route. Mount Rinjani National Park Hall has called on all parties to obey and understand the closure policy.

Even though (Rinjani Forest fires) there were land and forest fires around the Senaru and Sembalun climbing routes, there were no casualties for the trekkers who had been in Rinjani the day before, although many regretted the opportunity especially for those who did the Rinjani trekking on the morning of the fire. For the convenience and safety of the climbers, the Mount Rinjani National Park and the Trekking Organizer or Trekking operators decided to bring their climbers back to Senaru and Sembalun, so that complaints from the trekkers were unavoidable so that not a few of them took some the costs they have incurred.

However, with the closing of the Rinjani climbing route via Sembalun and Senaru, it does not mean you cannot do the Rinjani trekking activity, because you can do the Rinjani trekking route through the Timbanuh Line in the Southern Line.

Surely there are still many other tourist destinations that you can visit to replace your desire of trekking to Rinjani by trekking and hiking to the top of the Pergasingan hill which is famous for its beauty and is almost similar to Rinjani.

Kuta Mandalika is hosting 2021 MotoGP : MotoGP event at Buriram Circuit, Thailand on Sunday (6/10) yesterday made Indonesian motor racing fans enthusiastic. How not, in two years, Indonesia will also host the world’s most prestigious motor racing. Before Thailand, Malaysia had already hosted MotoGP at the Sepang Circuit. Indonesia received a contract as the host of MotoGP with a duration of five years starting in 2021. The Promoter’s Agreement was agreed by PT Indonesia Tourism Development or Indonesia Tourism Development Cooperation (ITDC) and Dorna as the organizer of MotoGP on January 28, 2019.

The preparation of Indonesia as the host of MotoGP was accelerated. In May, Indonesian President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) surveyed the location of the circuit located in the Mandalika Special Economic Zone (KEK), Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB).

Jokowi Said: “We want the facilities related to MotoGP 2021 to be worked on immediately. The airport has already been determined, so we expect construction to be the slowest in January 2020,” he said, quoted by Antara on Friday (5/17).

ITDC Managing Director Abdulbar M Mansoer stated, the Mandalika Circuit will later conceptualize the street circuit. That is, this circuit can function as a public road when not used for racing. These street circuits are similar to those used at Formula1 racing in Singapore and Monaco. Abdulbar said the process of topographic measurements and land investigations for the construction of the 2021 MotoGP Street Circuit Mandalika had been completed. The next process is land clearing and fencing around the circuit area. While the construction process will begin in the near future.

Abdurrahman Said: “We are sure that the construction of the Mandalika Street Circuit is currently proceeding according to plan, which is to start construction in October 2019,”.

In the process of homologation of the Mandalika Circuit design, Dorna has also agreed on the circuit design center line. That is, the points of the coordinates, length, and curve of the track with each other have been approved. The three-dimensional design of the Mandalika Circuit has also been uploaded by the official @MotoGP account on Instagram. Based on the center line agreement, ITDC together with the Mandalika Circuit development partners, namely Mrk1 Consulting and Vinci Construction Grands Projects as investors then prepared homologation documents to be submitted to the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM).

Furthermore, homologation documents that have been approved by FIM will be the basis for the preparation of Detailed Engineering Design (DED) or work drawings that include technical, architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, and environmental planning before starting the construction stage.

“Since the Kuta Mandalika Street Circuit was agreed to be the venue for the MotoGP in Indonesia, we have followed every planning process, especially the circuit homologation carefully and in accordance with the provisions, to ensure the circuit can be used from 2021 with safety levels according to FIM and Dorna standards,” Abdulbar said.

According to Abdulbar, FIM will also hold circuit inspections during the design homologation process, also when the circuit is completed. While the circuit trials by racers will be determined by Dorna, according to the time available before the race. He said the official schedule of the Mandalika MotoGP race for the 2021 season will be announced in August 2020. ITDC targets to be able to conduct a circuit feasibility test at the end of 2020.

In addition to hosting MotoGP racing, Mandalika also won a contract to hold the FIM Superbike World Championship (WSBK). “The holding of the MotoGP and WSBK events is believed to provide a strong positioning for Mandalika as one of the leading sports tourism destinations in Indonesia,” he said. Abdulbar explained the development of tourism in Kuta Mandalika will have a positive impact on the region. Among them, the creation of direct employment for around 7,500 people and an additional local investment of US $ 150 million. In addition, this project is also targeted to increase the number of foreign tourist visits to Indonesia to reach 300 thousand people per year.

Trekking To Summit Rinjani isn’t available: It is really disappointing! Climbing to the summit of Rinjani 3726 MASL is not available in this 2019 season and the manager of Mount Rinjani National Park does not provide access for climbers to do Rinjani Trekking activities to the summit. That is not because there are no basic reasons. Frequently questions arise from prospective climbers / trekkers who ask via online chat, WhatsApp, or email. Is the climb to the summit of Rinjani available this season ?, Why can’t you climb all the way to the summit of Rinjani? And when is the climb to the summit of Rinjani and the lake Segara anak will be available again?

 Is the climb to the top of Rinjani available this season?

One of the most frequently asked questions is whether climbing to the top of Rinjani is available this season. The answer is “no”, because access to the Rinjani peak was damaged quite badly after the earthquake in July to August 2018.

Why can’t you climb all the way to the Summit of Rinjani?

The closure of Rinjani trekking access to the peak of 3726 due to security and safety reasons for the climbers, if forced to do the climb to the top of Mount Rinjani it will pose a considerable risk. Along the path from the Sembalun route to the “letter e” and the peak suffered very severe damage, it is not possible to pass, especially by many people as is usually the case in the high season between June and August. Several feasibility surveys have been conducted by a joint team of SAR (Search And Rescue), officers from the Mount Rinjani National Park, Trekking Association operators to the Guide and Porters. Here is the video:

From the video, we can see some people who were doing a survey to the top of Rinjani having difficulty so they had to use a rope to get to the “ridge”. Also seen quite severe damage occurred along the path until there are some blank lines that cut access to the Rinjani Peak.

When will the climb to the summit of Rinjani and Lake Segara Anak be available again?

This is the most difficult question to answer, because the officers of the Mount Rinjani National Park also cannot answer it because they are unable to predict when access to the peak of Rinjani 3726 and access to Lake Sebaga Anak will recover. If anyone answers that the Rinjani Peak will be available again in 2022, it also cannot be ascertained because we can only wait for the reshaping of the density of soil and rocks along the path through the precipitation process which is assisted by rain.

No wonder the question arises and is often asked by prospective climbers who are planning a vacation or want to climb to Mount Rinjani, because so far the main attraction and the most typical of Mount Rinjani on the island of Lombok and Rinjani Trekking activity is the peak Rinjani 3726 MASL. Rinjani is known as the second highest volcano in Indonesia. Satisfaction alone will be obtained by trekkers who have set foot on Mount Rinjani, because of course to reach the Peak 3726 MASL from Mount Rinjani then you have to go through many steep and challenging roads that can trigger adrenaline. Certainly, you must be in a fit and full of spirit, not least of the many trekkers who have ever climbed Rinjani failed to reach the peak of 3726 MASL. Most of those who fail are because they are not very ready physically and mentally when facing the path to the top. But for those who can get to the top, not a few of them also shed tears of happiness, especially trekkers from Asia such as Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, Korea and so on. The beauty you will find at the summit of Rinjani, starting from the beautiful sunrise, the appearance of the Mount Agung Peak of Bali which is quite clear, to the sight of a series of small islands or Gili around the island of Lombok.

Although in this season and the next few years climbing access to the summit of Rinjani cannot be allowed for Trekking and climbing activities, but there are other options which certainly will not make you disappointed because you cannot climb to the top, ie you can choose the famous Senaru track with the beauty of the path that is still pure and many exotic views that can be traversed, besides that you can also see the Black Monkey that is around the Senaru track. Or you can also choose the Timbanuh Hiking Trail which is still pure and has a peak that is quite high and does not differ much from the main peak which is usually called the South Peak.

Are you interested in trying the Timbanuh route to the southern peak?

Mount Etna Eruption on Thursday, 30 May 2019 and available Friday, 31 May 2019 Mount Etna volcano spewed lava during the eruption. Mount Etna, or Etna (Italian: Etna [ˈɛtna] or Mongibello [mondʒiˈbɛllo]Sicilian: Mungibeddu [mʊndʒɪbˈbɛɖɖʊ] or â Muntagna; Latin: Aetna; Greek: Αίτνα), is an active stratovolcano on the east coast of SicilyItaly, in the Metropolitan City of Catania, between the cities of Messina and Catania. It lies above the convergent plate margin between the African Plate and the Eurasian Plate. It is the highest active volcano in Europe outside the Caucasus. It is currently 3,326 m (10,912 ft) high, though this varies with summit eruptions. It is the highest peak in Italy south of the Alps. Etna covers an area of 1,190 km2 (459 sq mi) with a basal circumference of 140 km (87 miles). This makes it by far the largest of the three active volcanoes in Italy, being about two and a half times the height of the next largest, Mount Vesuvius. Only Mount Teide on Tenerife in the Canary Islands surpasses it in the whole of the European–North-African region west of the Black Sea. In Greek Mythology, the deadly monster Typhon was trapped under this mountain by Zeus, the god of the sky and thunder and king of gods, and the forges of Hephaestus were said to also be located underneath it.

Mount Etna is one of the world’s most active volcanoes and is in an almost constant state of activity. The fertile volcanic soils support extensive agriculture, with vineyards and orchards spread across the lower slopes of the mountain and the broad Plain of Catania to the south. Due to its history of recent activity and nearby population, Mount Etna has been designated a Decade Volcano by the United Nations. In June 2013, it was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Mount Etna in Sicily has roared back to spectacular volcanic action since Thursday morning, sending clumps of ash and spewing lava. the largest of the three active volcanoes in Italy, spewed ash and lava once again, but officials said the activity took place at its peak and did not pose a risk to people and cities. Etna began a new phase of the eruption on Thursday when two new cracks in the volcano opened, sending lava under its wings.

Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) noted that previous activity occurred before the eruption, with a series of seismic events occurring in the weeks leading up to two opening slits in the New Southeast Crater of Mount Etna.

Eugenio Privitera, director of INGV Catania, said the eruption took place at the Etna Summit and did not pose a risk to the population. But he said Etna visitors must stay away from the summit for their own safety.

The northern lava flow reaches a distance of more than 1 mile while the southern lava flows almost double that distance, reports INGV.

The volcano erupted in December. The eruption was linked to an earthquake that caused extensive injury and damage to buildings on and near the slopes of the volcano.
