The following are some of the reasons why you should
choose Rinjani Footprint as your operator on your
1.We Know What We are Talking About!
Rinjani Footprint only offers trips we have first hand
experience with. We only offer expeditions that are run
professionally by either our own local team or by a
local operator that works with Rinjani Footprint to our
standards. All these operations are run by registered
companies, not fly by night businesses.
2. We Are The Operator
Rinjani Footprint is the operator. We have direct input
into how the trip is run. We have strict environmental,
social, cultural and labour policies.
3. We Are A Licensed Travel Agent
Rinjani Footprint is a Licenced Travel Agent. This means
your money is protected under the Travel Compensation
Fund (TCF). As a prudent traveler, you should not be
giving money to anyone that is not covered by this
Licence. Without a Travel Agent you are on your own.
4. We Have A Social, Cultural and Environmental
It is vitally important that travel has a positive
impact on the social, cultural and environmental aspects
of the places we visit. We ensure that when you visit
places with us, your presence will help those that live
there, that their culture will be respected and that the
environment at the very least will not be harmed.
While everybody speaks about sustainable tourism without
really act, Rinjani Trekking Club has decided to set-up
a strategy, on own scale, to effectively act against
this major issue.
The actions that we have done for Mount Rinjani are:
provide guidance, counseling to the porters and guides
and on every our trips, we always bring a sack to carry
the garbage down from the national park, and then we pay
the garbage from Porters and guide.
5. Social Policy
We believe in fair pay for fair work. That is why our
local teams are not only paid above market wages
(usually these market wages are below standard), but are
fed well and equipped well for your expedition. You will
see the difference as our teams remain highly motivated
and ready to serve you on expedition.
6. Cultural Policy
All societies have their own rules, borne out of
generations of cultural development. We are not here to
change these directly, but to witness them and
appreciate them as another form of human existence.
While on expedition, we will respect local cultures,
those developed out of religion or social norms. We ask
you to respect these to, as they are no better or worse
than our own.
7. Environmental Policy
There are many aspects to the issue of the environmental
impact of travel. Flying to the destination,
accommodation, food preparation and human waste control.
Each of these is covered either directly by our own
environmental policy or we ask you to assist by for
example, offsetting your carbon emissions to get to your
While on expedition we will offset all your carbon
emissions. We try to use eco friendly accommodation
where possible. Food is bought and prepared locally. We
try to use fresh produce as much as possible. All non
biodegradable material is packed and brought back to
main metropolitan centres for correct disposal.
Human waste is a major problem when traveling. It can
impact on the environment directly. We attempt to
dispose of this waste as effectively and sensitively as
possible. We will inform you on how you can help with
