Professional local guides and porters – supporting the local community
Herman trekker works exclusively with local guides and portersbecause we believe that our local people are most knowledgeable about Mount Rinjani National Park - you will not be able to find someone who knows the environment better than they do. All stuff is experienced and highly professional in organising and performing trekking tours for our visitors.All guides and porters have lived in the area for many years and know the National Park very well – they are professionally trained in managing all situations during our trekking tours.
Our porters are living close to the Mount Rinjani National Park and have climbed the mountain a lot of times before. They will carry the equipment (tent, mattress, sleeping bag etc.), cooking gear and food for you. All you will have to carry is a small backpack with your personal needs such as e.g. camera, snacks (optional) and a water bottle.
We believe in the concept of ecotourism: We offer employment opportunities to our local community to achieve sustainable development and growth for the surrounding villages. Working in partnership and creating empowerment for local families has a very positive impact on the local economy.
In this way, we can combine both: On the one hand providing a memorable experience to our guests, that helps to raise understanding of Lombok’s’ environmental, social and political situation. On the other hand we support the local community through economicdevelopment and raising cultural and social awareness and respect.
“Keep Mount Rinjani clean!”
We believe in the concept of ecotourism: With acting responsible, we can conserve and enhance biocultural diversity and protect the natural heritage of our National Park. Let’s protect our beloved mountains to make sure that this natural heritage can survive and be visited and enjoyed by many future generations.
