RINJANI TREKKING GUIDE & PORTER
Most of the porter and trekking guide all of them from

more people are using guide and porter from senaru or
sembalun village to go on trekking. Protection of the
environment is Rinjani trek Adventures service is first
priority and all porters and trekking guide are particularly
cautious in this respect. Our trek team is fully operated by
a team of young, energetic people who are fanatical about
keeping intact, while sharing the natural and cultural
environments of the places we visit.
We deal largely in ecotourism & adventure travel, but for us
adventures are not just the rugged kind. An adventure can
take many forms and need involve little that is overly
strenuous - to us every trip is a voyage of discovery and
hence an adventure. The guiding philosophy behind each is
that the trip be environmentally friendly and sustainable.
This means impacting as little as possible on the peoples
and places we visit, always respecting the distinctiveness
and special qualities of each. The way we do it must be
environmentally-friendly as well as economically and
physically efficient. This means we trek, cook, camp and
shows you more of the things with care and attentions. We
use mechanized transport when we have to cover long
distances in limited time; even so, we use local modes of
transportation as far as possible to maximize exposure to
the local lifestyles and to get close to the people. As a
consequence, during the tours there is a lot of opportunity
to learn about and from the indigenous peoples.
Based on the information that is given by the Department of
Mining and Energy of the West Nusa Tenggara Province, height
of mount Rinjani once reached approx; 5,000 m above sea
level. also, the recent west part of mount Rinjani, at the
pre quarter era (1,8 million years ago), was only sediment.
At later on the Pleistocene era (1.8 million ago) there was
volcanic activity as an effect of a tectonic volcanic
action, that seeped through the surface in the form of
explosive activity or melted lava.
