Plan to climbing Rinjani Mountain by your own? You sould know this
Many of us think that doing everything alone when traveling is better. Especially for adventurers, taking care of transportation, accommodation and logistics themselves feels more efficient & flexible. Most tourist destinations in the world may allow that, but how about Rinjani Mountain?
Based on the SOP issued by the Mount Rinjani National Park Agency, all foreign tourists are required to use organizers who have permission to carry out tourism service activities in the Mount Rinjani area. This is to ensure you have complete and sufficient logistics and have an experienced guide who knows Mount Rinjani well.
This means if you try to climb Mount Rinjani without an organizer, then you are trying to enter the national park area illegally. This of course will result in the imposition of sanctions on you, imprisonment even up to deportation.
