Mount Rinjani National Park
The volcano and the caldera are protected by the Gunung Rinjani National Park established in 1997. Tourism is increasingly popular with trekkers able to visit the rim, make their way into the caldera, or even to make the more arduous climb to the highest peak, the summit of Mt Rinjani.
In July 2009 the summit route was closed due to volcanic activity and subsequently reopened when the activity decreased. During early 2010 up to and including May 2010 access to Rinjani was at times again restricted due to volcanic activity, with the most recent volcanic activity being as recent as 2015.
The park is popular with mountain climbers and trekkers, and represents an important nature reserve and water catchement area. The park is officially 41,330 hectares and includes a further 66,000 hectares of protected forest outside of the park. In 2008, the Indonesian government proposed to UNESCO that Mount Rinjani be one of the world’s official geoparks. If this was approved by UNESCO, Mount Rinjani would become the first such geological park in Indonesia to be included.
It has been claimed that the preliminary documentation required for UNESCO registration has not received sufficient support from the Nusa Teggara Barat government offices. Among the requirements to become a geo-park sufficient information must be supplied to show that the location has sufficient and appropriate management, information services, access to educational instruction to facilitate “knowledge-based geotourism”, the implementation of a sustainable regional economy, biodiversity conservation, and to have established public access to the park area.
Mount Rinjani has obtained the World Legacy Award from Conservation International and Traveller (2004), and was a finalist for Tourism for Tomorrow Awards (2005 and 2008) from the World Travel Tourism Council (WTTC).
The ‘Rinjani Owl’ was found for the first time in 2003, and after 10 years evidence research is recognized as a new endemic owl.
Lombok Great Trekking – The best time to climb.
Mt Rinjani is near the equator so it’s not really affected by the seasons. There are two seasons, Rainy season Desember – March, where paths can be slippery and Dry season, April – November, which is the best time to climb Mount Rinjani. One of the highlights of a summit trek is that you will reach the summit of Mount Rinjani at sunrise, where you can experience a sunrise like no other.
