MOUNT RINJANI CLEAN UP 2018

Watch our Clean Up Rinjani Video

Mount Rinjani, a volcano in Lombok, is one of the most beautiful spots on earth. The incredible crater ascent rewards you with views out of this world!

But sadly, in recent years, the amount of rubbish (we’re talking fruit and vegetable scraps, dirty tissues, plastic bottles, straws, snack & candy wrappers and much more) are littered around the campsites and along the trails and it keeps growing and polluting the mountain.

This year, Gunung Rinjani National Park has put an extra effort into improving the facilities and cleaning up the mountain trail. It is an ongoing process and requires a change of mindset and collaborative effort from trekkers, ground operators, guides, porters and everyone living near the mountain in order to maintain a sustainable project.

To support this initiative, ATC continues to visit Lombok and last May, all 18 trekkers successfully climbed to the summit of Rinjani - after a year of preparation with us! These passionate souls, along with their hardworking porters and guides spent some of their precious relaxation time cleaning up the campsite by the stunning 6km blue lake, Danau Segara Anak. A fantastic way to recover from the challenging climb and rigorous summit push is to stretch and keep moving anyway. The mountain wins, we win.

In addition, ATC partners only with sustainable companies with guides and porters who practice ‘Leave No Trace’ Principles. What we take up the mountain must be taken down again, if not more, as in the case of these Rinjani Trekkers who not only challenged themselves and got out of their comfortable zones by showing other Trekkers how it’s done and always adhering to strict rules of responsible trekking.

Well done Team Captain Anja & Team Rinjani ‘18.
