Mount Rinjani’s hiking trails to close for three months.

The hiking trails on Mount Rinjani in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara, are set to be closed to hikers for three months, from Jan. 1 until March. 31.

Mount Rinjani National Park (TNGR) head R. Agus Budi Santoso told Antara news agency on Wednesday that the trails would be closed due to extreme weather and also to restore the ecosystem in the national park.

Agus mentioned that there were four official hiking trails located in Sembalun and Timbanuh in East Lombok regency; Senaru, North Lombok regency; and Aik Berik, Central Lombok regency. Those coming from other trails are considered to be carrying out illegal hiking.
