Indonesia | Opposition rallied against cable car project just outside Mount Rinjani NP

LOMBOK, Indonesia — Environmental activists have called on authorities in Indonesia’s Lombok Island to drop plans for a cable car project serving a UNESCO-listed national park.


The government of West Nusa Tenggara, an archipelagic province that includes the island of Lombok, earlier this year revived a proposal to run a cable car part of the way up the slope of Mount Rinjani from a village at the base. Zulkieflimansyah, the provincial governor, promoted the project on his Facebook and Instagram accounts, saying he was “very happy to see the public’s response on the upcoming cable car in our place.”
