Starting this 2010, we did a special service on top of Mount Rinjani which was cleaning the camp area of Bukit Penyesalan on 1st January 2010. It was ashamed that this beautiful place with so many rubbish.

Mount Rinjani is 3260meters above sea level, located in Lombok. It was very hard hiking. We were starting the trip from 26 December 2009 from Bali.

We are so happy with this trip as we started the year with good fun, meet new friends and did service to nature.
