MOUNT Rinjani in Lombok has won the World Legacy Award 2004 from the National Geographic Society, supported by Conservation International and National Geographic Traveller.

The Rinjani won over Moosalamoo Region, Vermont, Jurassic Coast, Dorset and East Devon Coast World Heritage, UK.

The Rinjani won the award for being a destination offering more than one attraction and for its efforts in nature and culture conservancy.

Lombok Promo project manager, Ms Rosa Stuart, said: “We are so proud of this award. We hope this will help us attract more travellers to Lombok. And in turn benefit the local people, who have been doing their best to conserve the nature and culture in the area.

“More importantly we really hope the local government will also come up with policy that will foster the growth of tourism here.”
