ECO TOURISM & GUIDED TREKKING, MT RINJANI
ABOUT RUDY TREKKER
Rudy Trekker is a Mount Rinjani trekking agency that organises treks through Gunung Rinjani National Park in northern Lombok. Founded by Rudy in 2010, the trekking company has expanded to a guest house and restaurant under the same name. Interesting fact: Rudy was a porter and guide before starting his own trekking company! Recommended by Lonely Planet as one of the best trekking companies in Senaru, we are passionate about sharing the beauty and magic of Mt Rinjani with travellers from around the world. We are lucky to have a very supportive following from Tripadvisor with a 5 star rating and more than 170 reviews from our trekkers.
We pride ourselves to be extremely well organised to ensure your trek will be an extraordinary experience. Our guides are fluent in English and get a special training and practice before starting their work on the trek. The safety and well-being of our guests is our highest priority.
WHY WE ASK FOR AN ENVIRONMENTAL HYGIENE FEE
TREKKING & TRASH
You will notice that we ask for USD 10 per person environmental hygiene fee to ensure that your trash is taken down. The fee ensures that Rinjani remains the beautiful, sacred part of nature that it is. Every bit of equipment that we pack is marked and counted. That way, we know how much inorganic material we are taking to the mountain and can guarantee that we take it back down again. During your trek you can give any trash that you may have to our guides. There are many companies trekking Rinjani that leave their trash behind. We do not want to be one of them. Imagine the amount of trash left in the national park if the thousands of travellers coming every year just dropped their waste? It is essential to us that we are able to enjoy Rinjani in a sustainable way and ensure our waste is brought back down the mountain.
SUSTAINABLE & ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY TREKKING
CLEAN, CARE & LEAVE NO TRACE
At Rudy Trekker we see ourselves as an environmentally friendly and sustainable travel company that cleans and cares for the park. On arrival you will see that the driveway into Rudy Trekker’s Guest House is lined with a plastic bottle fence. All of these bottles have been taken to the mountain and back with us to ensure that no plastic is left behind in the nature of Rinjani. Every so often we take our guides & porters up to the mountain and pick up trash that others have left behind. Please take care of every bit of waste you bring to the mountain and ensure that you take it with you, and to leave no trace.
RUDY TREKKER SUPPORTS LOMBOK’S FORGOTTEN CHILDREN
We have a heart for charity and help the community where we can. As proud sponsors of the 2017 Fiona Unity Foundation charity climb, Rudy Trekker supported Lombok’s Forgotten Children’s House of Hope. The donations went to sick, disabled and dying children that have been abandoned by their parents. At the House of Hope, they are taken care of. We’re honoured to have been part of the charity climb to help poor children in need and encourage anyone who would like to make a difference in a child’s life to join in by volunteering or donating.
PLANT TREES FOR THE FUTURE
SUSTAINING A NATURAL RINJANI
Rudy Trekker is proud to be part of the eco tourism movement, sustaining the astonishing nature of northern Lombok while guiding travellers along the trek. The Gunung Rinjani National Park is a natural phenomenon that we want to sustain for all generations to come. Therefore, we promote a green Rinjani and plant trees for the future.
