Is it Compulsory to Hire Rinjani Guide and Porters?
The authority of Rinjani National Park has issued a notice which is clearly signed in the front of Rinjani Trek Centre (RTC) office in Senaru. the notice stated “Foreigners are not Allowed to Climb Mount Rinjani without a Guide or Local Porter”.
From the notice we got to know that climbing without guide is forbidden.
“An organized trek is by far the easiest, safest and most popular option but it is also quite possible to make all of your own arrangements and just hire equipment from one of the trekking centers on the mountain. Rinjani Park regulations stipulate the use of a certified guide so the people at the centers at the start of the hike are not happy to let you climb Rinjani without guide. With a lot of patience and explanations you can sign a paper which says that you are responsible for yourself and not the organization. You will still pay the entrance fee, but it is by far the cheapest option to walk by yourself.” – Wikitravel
