Most of the porter and trekking guides all them from Senaru Village because they have always been to Rinjani Mountain for religious purposes (mediates, sacrifice, etc) they have great experience of the area and are professional. more people are using guides and porters 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 guides 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 to 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 is 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 show you more of the things with care and attention. We use mechanized transport when we have to cover long distances in a 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 are a lot of opportunities to learn about and from the indigenous peoples.
