These guidelines help minimize the impact of your visit on the natural environment and also on other visitors. Help to keep the park unspoiled for future visitors.
Remove rubbish :
Litters is unattractive, harmful to wildlife, and can increase. Plan your trip to minimize rubbish by not taking bottles and cans. Rinjani has a “pack it in –pack it out” policy, so be sure to carry out of the pack whatever you carry in.
Keep to the track :
By keeping to the trail, you avoid trampling undergrowth and risking getting lost in the forest.
Camp with care :
When camping, leave no trace of your visit.
Keep streams an lake clean :
Wash well away from the water source by talking water in a container. Soap and detergent are harmful to the creatures that live in the streams alike. Drain used water into the ground.
Bury toilet waste :
In areas without toilet facilities, bury your toilet waste in a shallow hole well away from waterways, tracts, campsites and shelter. Take care with fires. Portable fuel stoves are less harmful to the environment and are more efficient than fires. If you must use a fire, keep it small and make sure that the fire is out before leaving by dousing it with water and checking the ashes.
Respect cultural and natural heritage :
Help protect the spiritual and historical significance of Mt. Rinjani by respecting our local culture. Conserve wildlife and plants of the National Park by not removing anything.
Consider other visitors :
Walk quietly trough the forest so that you do not disturb the wildlife that you and others have come to see.
Enjoy your visit :
So, this is how rinjani local wisdom should be our common concern. Enjoy your visit and before leaving the area take one last look – will the next visitor know that you have been here?
