Mt Rinjani Trekking – Invitation

I am pleased to inform that the Mount Rinjani Trekking trip in June 2011 is confirmed.
Currently, the group consists of 8 men and 2 ladies. However, the group is still trying to recruit two (2) more lady trekkers due to earlier cancellation.
This is a journey about 'from the mountain top to the ocean deep/beach'.

If you are (or your friends are) interested, do contact me (KC) for more details:
