“We surveyed the area more than five times to ensure its safety prior to opening the hiking trails,” said Mount Rinjani National Park Agency (TNGR) head Sudiyono on Thursday as quoted by tempo.co.
“Since last year’s earthquake, locals have been unable to work as they were dependent on providing services for the hikers,” he added.
However, climbers are prohibited from visiting the peak of Rinjani and Lake Segara Anak, and will only be allowed to trekking to Pelawangan Senaru and Sembalun ( Rinjani Crater Rim Trekking ).
The number of hikers allowed up is also being limited. A maximum of 500 people ( split into all trekking entrance gates about 150/gate/day ), including porters and guides, are permitted to enter four official trails per day, namely Sembalun in East Lombok, Senaru in North Lombok, Aik Berik in Central Lombok and Timbanuh in North Lombok.
