Remove rubbish :
unattractive, harmful to wildlife, and can increase. Plan your
trip to minimize rubbish by not taking bottles and cans. Rinjani
has a “pack it in –pack it out” policy, so be sure to carry out of
the pack whatever you carry in.
Keep to the track :
By keeping to
the trail, you avoid trampling undergrowth and risking getting
lost in the forest.
Camp with care :
camping, leave no trace of your visit.
Keep streams an lake clean :
Wash well away
from the water source by talking water in a container. Soap and
detergent are harmful to the creatures that live in the streams
alike, drain used water into the ground.
Bury toilet waste :
In areas without
toilet facilities, bury your toilet waste in a shallow hole well
away from waterways, tracts, campsites and shelter. Take care with
fires. Portable fuel stoves are less harmful to the environment
and are more efficient than fires. If you must use a fire, keep it
small and make sure that the fire is out before leaving by dousing
it with water and checking the ashes.
Respect cultural and natural heritage :
Help protect the
spiritual and historical significance of Mt. Rinjani by respecting
our local culture. Conserve wildlife and plants of the National
Park by not removing anything.
Consider other visitors :
trough the forest so that you do not disturb the wildlife that you
and others have come to see.
Enjoy your visit :
Enjoy your visit
