Rinjani 2009 is FINAL!!

Yes….finally our expedition leader managed to get the full programme. Please download the itinerary guys.


The budget is a bit high…so prepare about RM1000 extra to be spent there. That should cover personal porter as well. And as mentioned by Arey, we will start training beginning June! So maybe we will go to Nuang.

Lata Mentagan | 26th April 2009

We will go to Lata Mentagan, Maran this Sunday. It is about 1 hour car journey to this small waterfall. Our aim is landscape & macro photography. Those interested to come please read our flickr forum. My friends who had been there warned us about that creepy craeture called ‘pacat’ which is endemic there :D
