Mount Rinjani National Park Information
The volcano and the caldera are protected by the Gunung Rinjani National Park established in 1997. Tourism is increase popular with trekkers able to visit the rim, make their way into the caldera or even to make more challenge climb to the highest point. In October 25th 2015 the summit route was closed due to volcanic activity at that time and reopened when the activity decreased.
The park is popular for mountain climb, trek and represents an important nature reserve and water catchment area. The park is official 41,330 hectares within the park boundaries and includes a further 66,000 hectares of protected forest outside. The mountain and its satellites form the Mount Rinjani National Park. In 2008, the Indonesian government proposed to U.N.E.S.C.O that Mt Rinjani be one of the world’s official Geo-Parks. If this was approved by U.N.E.S.C.O, Mt Rinjani would become the first such geological park in Indonesia.
It has been claimed that the preliminary documentation required for U.N.E.S.C.O registration has not received sufficient support from the West Nusa Tenggara government offices. The requirements to become a Geo Park enough information must be supplied to show that the location has enough and appropriate management, information services, access to educational instruction to facilitate ” knowledge-based Geo-Tourism “, the implementation of a sustainable regional economy, biodiversity conservation, and to have established public access to the park area. Mt Rinjani has obtained the World Legacy Award from Conservation International and Traveler 2004, and was a finalist for Tourism for Tomorrow Awards 2005 and 2008 from the World Travel Tourism Council W.T.T.C.
