MEETING THE KOMODO DRAGON – a softer option

06 | TransNusa

| Inflight Magazine | Nov - Dec 2011


TransNusa Inflight Magazine Mengunjungi sarang Komodo, di kepulauan Komodo biasanya membutuhkan waktu dua atau tiga hari berlayar menggunakan kapal-kapal kayu yang telah disiapkan oleh para tour operator dari Labuan Bajo, yang mana Anda akan bermalam dikapal yang ditambatkan di salah satu teluk pulau Komodo merupakan cara yang paling romantis dan menarik untuk melihat Komodo serta menikmati keindahan dan keajaiban kepulauan ini serasa memasuki peradaban lain. Dua persyaratan penting yang harus dipertimbangkan adalah - waktu dan biaya. Bagi kalangan berduit, perjalanan satu atau dua minggu yang dirancang secara khusus dengan menggunakan kapal mewah, dari Bali yang dilengkapi dengan peralatan diving, perahu karet, kamar yang nyaman serta butler yang siap melayani Anda. Bagi Anda yang memiliki waktu dan tidak terlalu banyak, hanya memerlukan waktu dua malam diatas kapal kayu sambil menikmati segarnya udara laut dan indahnya cahaya bintang. Dan bagi Anda yang sangat minim waktu, dan hanya ingin masuk dan keluar tanpa harus bermalam di kapal, karena harus kembali

A visit to the home of the Komodo dragons on Komodo island is normally thought to consist of a boat trip requiring two or three nights where on one night your vessel is moored in one of the bays of Komodo island – definitely the most romantic and exciting way of seeing the Komodo dragons while experiencing the beauty and wonder of an area like nowhere else in the world save perhaps the Galapagos. Two important requirements need to be considered - time and expense. For those of us you with oodles of both, trips of one to two weeks on state of the art specially designed luxurious schooners make the journey from Bali and include dive equipment, motorized rubber dingies, state-rooms and butlers. For those with time but not as much “ready cash� there are the sleep-on-under deck craft making the trip from Labuan Bajo that

TransNusa Inflight Magazine bekerja diesok hari – perjalanan sehari ke salah satu pulau Komodo masih memungkinkan – cobalah Pulau Rinca. Kami bertemu dengan Bapak Hayun – lima tahun lalu dia tidur diatas truk. Dia sekarang memiliki lima kapal, lima mobil dan sepuluh web-site yang melayani perjalanan ke kepulauan Komodo dari Labuan Bajo sesuai dengan keinginan Anda. Dia memiliki kapal cukup nyaman dengan kabin yang dapat digunakan untuk bermalam selama di perjalanan menuju kepulauan Komodo, tetapi dia juga menawarkan perjalanan pendek yang cukup popular – perjalanan ke Rinca. Mungkin beberapa orang akan menertawakan kami, dan berkomentar bahwa perjalanan ini tidak nyata, biarkan saya memberikan Anda beberapa fakta: Setiap pengunjung taman nasional harus disertai ranger yang juga berfungsi sebagai pemandu Anda selama berada di area taman nasional. Ini merupakan salah satu fakta, jika digali lebih dalam lagi menurut informasi para petugas – sudah ada beberapa korban yang diserang Komodo ketika mereka sedang mengembara sendiri. Kami mendaftarkan diri kami di kator Taman Nasional Komodo, kemudian memilih jalur yang paling pendek, yang membutuhkan waktu kurang lebih dua jam perjalanan mendaki ke puncak hingga tiba di viewpoint. Komodo dapat ditemukan, hanya pada ke dua pulau di Indonesia - Komodo dan Rinca. Kami memutuskan untuk mengunjungi Rinca karena memiliki populasi yang lebih besar, kurang lebih 1.900 naga, dan perjalanan ini dapat dilakukan dalam sehari, yaitu dua setengah

require two nights under the stars. And then there are the trips for the rest of us – we just want to get in and get out with a minimum of fuss and bother and be back at work on Monday morning or somewhere else – a day trip to the islands of the dinosaurs sounds perfect – come in Rinca island. We met up with Pak Hayun – five years ago he was sleeping in Labuan Bajo in the back of someone else’s truck. He now has five boats and five vans and about ten websites all catering to budget boat trips in the archipelago he calls home. He has moderately comfortable boats with cabins that moor off Komodo for a few nights but he also organises the very popular softer option – a boat trip to Rinca. And while some of you might start guffawing “that’s not the real thing, bunch of pansies”, let me provide you a few facts: All visitors to the national park must be accompanied by a ranger who also serves as your guide through the national park area. This fact, further drilled by the park management – yes there are attacks that have occurred for unfortunates who have wandered off alone. After registering our names with the park HQ, we chose to do the shorter, two hour, trek which also included a climb up to a viewpoint area.

TransNusa Inflight Magazine jam perjalanan dengan kapal dari Labuan Bajo menuju Rinca, dua jam di Taman Nasional dan dua setengah jam dari Rinca kembali ke Labuan Bajo. Perjalanan ke Rinca itu sendiri sangatlah mengesankan, lautan terbentang dari kejauhan tampak pulau Flores memanjang bak benteng batu berlumut, disekitarnya bermunculan pulau-pulau kecil menjulang bak gunung-gunung mini dikelilingi pasir putih dengan airnya yang jernih. Kapal kami melaju ke Rinca, sesekali tampak ikan lumbalumba berlompatan memamerkan kebolehannya. Setelah puas mengambil foto-foto Komodo, yang berkeliaran disekitar rumah panggung (kantor ranger), kami memulai perjalanan memasuki kawasan taman nasional. Tampak kerbau sedang berbahagia menikmati mandi lumpur. Beberapa kera berlompatan didahan mencari biji-bijian untuk dimakan, babi hutan mengintip disela-sela rerimbunan pepohonan. Sebuah pohon tua menjulang tampak kering tak berdaun. Tiba-tiba ranger kami menunjuk keatas pohon tersebut sambil berseru baby Komodo!!!! Bagai mana bisa??? Menurut mereka, Komodo kecil hidup diatas pohon, mereka memangsa serangga dan binatang kecil lainya. Hingga cukup dewasa, mulailah mereka bergabung dengan Komodo

| Inflight Magazine | Nov - Dec 2011

dewasa lainnya. Komodo dewasa bertahan hidup dengan memangsa kerbau, babi hutan bahkan kuda. Mereka pemangsa yang cukup handal dan memiliki bisa yang luar biasa mematikan. Biasanya Komodo akan mengigit mangsanya terlebih dahulu, kemudian meninggalkan mangsanya hingga tewas, barulah Komodo akan menikmati hasil tangkapannya. Komodo mirip dengan Buaya, tampak tenang tak berdaya berbaring ditanah, namun jangan lengah mereka pelari yang handal. Ranger kami menggunakan tongkat kayu yang ujungnya bercabang dua siap memandu Anda dan menjaga Anda selama di perjalanan.

Komodo dragons can be found, natively, only on two islands in Indonesia – Komodo and Rinca. We decided to visit Rinca because it had a greater population, 1,900 dragons approx, and because it could be done as a day trip, two and a half hours by boat (one way) from Labuan Bajo compared to four hours to Komodo Island. The boat ride itself, while long, was eventful as we got to see a pod of dolphins on the way to Rinca!

Sulit untuk dibayangkan bahwa di dalam dataran ini merupakan rumah bagi ratusan Komodo.

After photographing the local dragons that hang out near the Rangers cabins we head out on our trek and soon came across another Rinca native… the water buffalo, this one happily submerged in a mud bath. Water buffaloes serve as the main prey for Komodo dragons, once bitten the dragons stalks the wounded buffalo until it finally succumbs to the toxins. We walk on viewing a tiny tree dwelling komodo – they live up high until they are big enough to go toe to toe with their bigger brothers.

Kami puas dengan apa yang kami lihat dan alami di pulau Rinca, sambil menikmati makan siang diatas kapal yang disiapkan oleh awak kapal, kami meninggalkan

We didn’t “run into ‘ any dragons on our trek and I wonder whether we really wanted to. They are huge and can run at a terrific pace and ranger or no

Perjalanan ke Taman Nasional Komodo tidak terlalu sulit untuk ditempuh dengan pemandangan safana yang spektakuler, dari kejauhan tampak laut beserta pulaupulau kecil tersebar disekitar pulau Rinca.


TransNusa Inflight Magazine pulau Rinca. Kami terdiam menikmati hidangan yang mereka sajikan, hanya suara kapal motor yang berderu membelah lautan. Tampak beberapa kapal menambatkan dirinya pada sebuah pulau, kamipun berhenti disebelahnya, airnya yang jernih sehingga dapat melihat ikan dan terumbu karang hanya dari atas kapal, menarik perhatian kami pun terjun untuk menikmati kesegarannya. Waktu berlalu sangat cepat, kami harus kembali ke Labuan Bajo, bahagia dan letih berbaur mejadi satu, sambil membayangkan apa yang telah kami alami dalam 1 hari ini. Saat ini yang kami inginkan adalah mandi & berbaring di tempat yang nyaman dan dingin. Untung kami tinggal di Bintang Flores Hotel, dengan fasilitasnya kami dapat bermalas-malasan menunggu esok tiba untuk kembali ke pulang.

How to get there

Penerbangan ke Labuan Bajo (Komodo) 10 x seminggu. Untuk informasi lebih lanjut, silakan menghubungi kantor TransNusa terdekat di kota Anda (atau buka halaman 44).

rangers I’m not too sure if they had their eye on you if there is anything anyone could do to stop them – getting up close and personal near the rangers’ office was almost too close for comfort. The trek affords spectacular panoramic views of the ocean and islands in the distance and Rinca itself. It’s hard to imagine that these these plains are home to just under two thousand Komodo dragons At the end of the day you’ve more than likely had some adrenalin rushes and some great visual stimulation. You’re ready to chill out; you’re ready for a nice hot shower or bath and some cool refreshments – hopefully like me you consider staying at the Bintang Flores Hotel right on its own private beach with all the facilities needed to make your stay near the dragons of Komodo perfect.

Flights to Labuan Bajo (Komodo) 10 x / week are operated by TransNusa. For further information, please contact the TransNusa office at each destination (further details available P44).

BELARAGHI

f you want to experience Ngada culture beyond popular Bena and Wogo, and if you are ready to invest a little time and physical effort, you should dare to hike to the extraordinary village of Belaraghi and spend the night in this beautiful place. You can look forward to being received by an extraordinarily warm, open hearted small community with a good sense of humor. The concerns about your bruises and blisters will immediately disappear when Belaraghi reveals itself in front of you like an old hidden but precious treasure out of this world. Belaraghi has seen only few visitors yet, to most of them, it was love at first sight. The sixteen beautiful traditional houses are located in a secluded forest clearing, providing natural harmony. The people of Belaraghi have been rejecting any changes to their houses i.e. tin roofs or concrete walls, not for the sake of tourism, but out of their own conviction that their houses and the cultural values attached to them are worth being maintained. The sixteen traditional houses, standing tidily in two parallel rows, are renovated on a regular basis and are thus in very good condition. Five of those sixteen houses are so-called sao pu’u, first or original

14 | TransNusa

| Inflight Magazine | Nov - Dec 2011

houses, which are indicated by a miniature house on the roof; the other five distinct buildings are sao lobo, ‘last houses’, which feature a miniature human figure on the roof. Five is also the number of clans living in Belaraghi at present. Each of the clan has its own sao pu’u, sao lobo, as well as a ngadhu and a bhaga. However, there are only three pairs of ancestral shrines because two of the clans are still waiting for the appropriate time to bring them from another village to Belaraghi. Besides the buildings mentioned, the Belaraghi clans are also affiliated with another house type: the sao kaka (with kaka meaning ‘to share’). These houses are considered ‘children’, the descendents of a clan’s sao pu’u and sao lobo. Some of the sao kaka is even located in other villages. The kaka inhabitants support their families in the sao pu’u and the sao lobo financially, materially and with work power. Carvings are an important element of Ngada buildings. They can be found outside and inside the houses, prominently the sao pu’u, as well as on the ancestral shrines. In Belaraghi, you get a good opportunity to look closer at


some of their most popular motifs. The horse – jara - is a frequently featured symbol that visualizes transportation, travelling, trading, and hunting. Furthermore, horses are a vital part of the marriage dowries in Ngada. Manu jawa, the chicken, is a symbol for the continuity of life: the crowing of the rooster signals to the people that it is morning and time to commence one’s daily activities; besides the chicken also symbolizes the smallest animal offering, which is required on every step of house construction. The dragonor snake-shaped sawa ba’a is the protector of the house, more precisely of the ancestral spirits, which are believed to reside inside the house. Only some footsteps out of the village, there is a ritual site with five bhagalike houses called loka – one for each clan. The loka face the watu lanu, a construction consisting of an elevated stone court framed by ijuk-covered poles. This site is mainly used by the Belaraghi for the ‘bui loka’, a ceremony to initiate Reba, the Ngada wide New Year festivities. To the Belaraghi people, visitors from abroad are guests, not tourists. Therefore, guests are traditionally welcomed with a ceremony called ti’i ka ebu nusi, which translates as ‘give food to the ancestors’. It is about introducing the guests to the host’s ancestors, to ask for their blessings so that no obstacles may come in the way

Ja’i, traditional welcome dance

of the traveller, and to ask the evil spirits in the mountains not to cause any harm to them. The ritual takes place in the sao one, the most sacred inside part of a Ngada house. By reading the intestines of a sacrificed chicken, the mosalaki can see if there is any incidents on the way to Belaraghi, and he will make predictions about the continuation of the guests’ journey by the nature of the intestines. After ti’i ka ebu nusi, it is time to sit together for conversation and a shared meal. As there is no electricity yet in Belaraghi, the soft light of the oil-lamps brings a very cozy atmosphere inside the neat and clean wooden houses. At night, enjoy these rare moments of silence, with only nature’s sounds that will accompany you to sleep. As Belaraghi is already close to the coast, it will not get as cold as in Bajawa at night.

How to get there The most interesting and rewarding, but also most demanding, way to reach Belaraghi is by a 11 km hike starting from Beiposo village near Bajawa. This hike is not recommended during the rainy season. As you will mostly follow downward paths in the forest that are rarely used and hard to find by the untrained eye, it is indispensable to have a versatile guide with you. Furthermore, a good guide can explain the many interesting facts about the lush flora that you will encounter during your journey, and can clarify your questions about local culture. A guide can also organize accommodation for you in the village. The next morning, you can continue your hike on a broader road heading towards the coast of Aimere. Depending on your stamina, you can jump on your pre-organized transportation earlier or further down the main road. Landscape of vast hilly land and Aimere coast before reaching Belaraghi village (top) Traditional house entrance (bottom)

towards Keligejo village, drive to Pauleni village and register in the guestbook as a visitor to Belaraghi. Continue your drive to Paukate village, passing the SDK Paukate and the Kantor Kepala Desa (village head office) Keligejo. The distance from the Keligejo junction to Paukate village is less than 4 km. Paukate is a good starting point for your hike. If you are on your own motorbike or car, ask at one of the local houses to park your vehicle there (a small donation would be appreciated). If you have a car or ojek driver, don’t forget to arrange a pick up time.

There are not many guides who can assist the trekking to Belaraghi yet. Wilhelmus Doi, an experienced trekking guide from Bajawa who is well versed in Ngada nature and culture, may even be the only one at the moment. He can give you more information about the different options and arrange everything for the trekking, from the transportation to the accommodation in the village. If you want to see Belaraghi with less effort in a day, you can also reach the village in less than 3 km hike that starts at Paukate village. Passing on a good and mostly even road, you will be surrounded by beautiful wideopen and soft-hilled grasslands with a stunning view of the Aimere coastline.

Belaraghi is one of Flores’ cultural gems featured in a book published by Swisscontact - Flores: A Glimpse of the People and Culture.

From Bajawa, take the Transflores highway towards Aimere. After about 2.5 km, take a right turn at the Ende – Aimere junction. About 35 km on, at the junction

bali ecovillage Br.Dinas Lawak – Belok Sidan – Bali Created using natural materials and employing traditional craftsman, Bali Eco Village aims soon to be a completely sustainable tourism project that will enhance the environment and show villagers a new way of moving towards a sustainable future. In the belief that there are others who want to enjoy and unspoiled Bali and need some time off to enjoy nature in its purest form, the owner with their staff have created a resort for casual visitors, workshop organizers and environmentally conscious groups. The resort aims to be completely self-sustainable in the very near future and currently is a tribute to natural in all its forms. “All of the buildings are almost entirely built from bamboo and we have combined old techniques like roof tiles and other techniques that were experimental at the time, but we made it work. We have harnessed the river below to get energy for some areas of the resort” Explain the manager. Water for cooking, bathing, and drinking is all locally sourced and the water for gardens is recycled. An organic farm provides the vegetables for the resort and free range pigs and chickens are raised for the restaurant as well, while an Italian friend

who is enthusiastic cook creates delicious family style Mediterranean meals daily to cater for the guest. Waste is also is dealt with environmentally and the Eco Village hope to be train local villagers in waste management so that these skills become part of their daily lives. The local villagers r employed in various ways from raising livestock to maintenance, cooking, providing hospitality service for guests in the practical elements of maintaining a sustainable of this kind. Giving back to the community is a large part of Eco Villages function, providing employment, training and jobs as is providing a vision for the future that is low cost and sustainable in order to preserve this unspoiled environment from becoming polluted. This is soft tourism, a natural way back to nature, an antidote to the stress of modern world. Bali Eco Village is a sanctuary and escape, a place where everyone is welcome to come and enjoy life as it was meant to be lived.

TransNusa Inflight Magazine

Lombok's Peak of Perfection

26 | TransNusa

| Inflight Magazine | Nov - Dec 2011


TransNusa Inflight Magazine Mendaki Gunung Rinjani mengikuti jejak putra putri dan raja pada jaman dahulu. Merupakan ritual berabad-abad lamanya yang dilakukan oleh warga Hindu Bali dan Sasak Lombok. Berjalan sebagai peziarah ke danau suci kaldera, untuk memberi persembahan kepada para dewa. Satu Raja Bali yang sudah beranjak usia, dan tidak mampu lagi melakukan pendakian ini, membuat replika gunung beserta danau kawah yang dibangun di istananya. Sebuah mitos Bali mengatakan bahwa Rinjani dibuat ketika monyet bermain dengan bulan, kemudian pecah menjadi tiga bagian dan menjatuhkannya ke bumi. Satu bagian mendarat di Jawa menjadi Gunung Merapi, satu mendarat di Bali menjadi Gunung Agung, sementara yang satu lagi mendarat di Lombok menjadi Gunung Rinjani. Warga Sasak percaya pada dewi gunung, Dewi Anjani, yang mengendarai kuda putih indah dan dapat memberikan kekuatan magis kepada pemujanya yang memberi persembahan di samping danau. Beberapa datang pada saat bulan purnama diyakini bahwa kekuatan magis dapat masuk pada benda tertentu seperti keris, batu permata, benda dari kayu dan tongkat.

Mendaki gunung Rinjani Kebanyakan dari para pendaki memulai pendakiannya dari utara, sebuah desa bernama Senaru di mana semua kebutuhan memanjat dapat diatur disana. Porter yang tersedia akan membatu membawa perlengkapan tidur, makanan beserta air Anda. Mereka akan mendirikan tenda, mencari tambahan air termasuk memasak dan itu Anda peroleh semua hanya dari seorang pemandu.

To climb Mt Rinjani is to follow a trail set by princess and kings. It is to participate in a ritual enacted over the centuries by both the Hindus of Bali and the Sasak’s of Lombok. To be sacred lake in the caldera they would trek as pilgrims, there to make offerings in the abode of the Gods. One Balinese king felt so strongly about the ritual that as he got older and was no longer able to make the climb, he had a huge replica of crater lake built in his palace grounds; mountain and all. A myth from Bali says that Rinjani was created when monkeys, playing with the moon, broke three pieces and dropped them. One piece landed on Java to become the dangerous Mt Merapi, one landed on Bali to become holy Mt. Agung while the other landed on Lombok to become Rinjani. The Sasaks believe in a goddess of the mountain, Dewi Anjani, who rides a beautiful white hoarse and can bestow supernatural powers on devotees who make offerings to her beside the lake. Some come during full moon when it is believed that magical strength can be derived from the pilgrimage for certain items such as Kris knives, precious stones and wooden staffs and wands.

I climbed Rinjani to see what I could see Most climbs begin from the north at a village called Senaru where all the climbing necessities can be arranged. Porters are available. They will carry your gear, food and that most precious commodity of all, water. They will set up your tents, search for additional water, do your cooking and most important of all serve as guide.

TransNusa Inflight Magazine Diatas danau

Up to the crater

Kami berangkat dipagi hari dan segera terlibat dalam pendakian yang sulit. Kurang lebih seperempat perjalanan untuk mencapai bibir kawah, perjalanan yang cukup berat melalui lumpur yang memadat menguras tenaga kami. Keinginan untuk menyerah terus-menerus menggoda. Hampir tidak ada jeda dalam perjalanan ini, hanya naik, naik dan terus naik.

We left at dawn and were immediately involved in an arduous climb. For better than thee quarters of the way up to the crater lip the track is an endless series of steps made out of compacted mud. The inclination to give up and go back constantly teased us. There is hardly any respite in the form of downhill runs or those with a gentle gradient. Up, up, up, all the way.

Pada ketinggian 2.100 meter, kami harus memutuskan apakah berkemah untuk bermalam di tempat ini atau terus hingga mencapai bibir kawah pada ketinggian 2.900 meter. Kami terus melangkah dan tiba di bibir kawah sekitar jam empat sore. Syukurlah kami melakukan itu, karena setibanya dibibir kawah, kami disuguhi tontonan vulkanik yang tak biasa; bayangkan warna matahari terbenam, yang tertelan oleh bumi, dengan latar belakang puncak spektakuler menjulang perkasa dengan danau Segara Anak yang terlindungi dimana ditengahnya muncul kerucut anak gunung aktif yang letusannya sangat berbahaya. Di depan kami adalah puncak gunung Rinjani seperti sirip hiu menjorok ke atas, dinding vertikal terjal kawah. Di belakang adalah panorama pantai barat Lombok dengan pulau-pulau karang mengambang di lautan yang tenang. Bahkan lebih jauh lagi akan tampak Gunung Agung Bali yang menjulang ke langit menembus awan. Begitu matahari menghilang udara dingin mulai terasa. Kami meringkuk disekitar api unggun, menikmati teh panas dan mie instant sebelum beristirahat didalam tenda untuk menghindari angin menggigit di alam terbuka.

At the 2,100-metre mark we had to decide whether to camp for the night in a rickety shelter or use the momentum while we still had it to press on to crater lip at 2,900 metres. We kept plugging on and arrived at the lip around four in the afternoon. Thankfully we kept going for we were treated to a real volcanic spectacle; imagine sunset colours, themselves out of this world, but also with the spectacular backdrop of the mighty peak herself looming proudly and protectively over Lake Segara Anak and the daughter cone in the middle of the lake in hot and, I was later told, dangerous eruption. To the front of us was Rinjani’s summit like a shark fin thrusting upwards from the vertical, craggy walls of the crater. Behind was a panorama of Lombok’s west coast with her coral islands floating in a tranquil sea. Even further away Bali’s Mt. Agung poked through some clouds into the blood-red heavens above. No sooner did the sun disappear than the cold set in. I huddled around the camp-fire gulping down hot tea and noodles before retiring into a tent to escape the biting winds that battered the exposed ridge.


TransNusa Inflight Magazine

Fajar menyingsing, cahaya pagi berkilau mewarnai danau zamrud biru. Didekatnya, terdengar suara gemuruh bak guntur yang keluar dari gunung kecil ditengah Segara Anak, diikuti dengan getaran setiap beberapa menit mengguncang bahkan tempat kami berdiri sekitar tiga mil jauhnya. Kami harus turun ke kawah dekat dengan gunung meletus, berputar mengelilingi dan mendaki ke sisi lain untuk menjauhi pusat serangan. Ketakutan mengintai setiap langkah dan kami berharap cepat dapat meninggalkan tempat ini. Dari tepi kawah menuju danau merupakan perjalanan yang cukup sulit dilalui. Hal inilah yang membuat kami enggan untuk meninggalkannya, tepi kemungkinan akan ada letusan lagi dari Gunung Baru Jani, kami harus siap melaluinya. Perjalanan yang ditempuh dengan cara merayapi dinding kawah. Jurang yang dalam pada sisi kanannya, jalanan berbatu dan tanah yang mudah longsor. Saya sangat bersyukur, mengikuti jejak-jejak pendahulu saya yang telah membentuk pijakan kaki sehingga dengan mudah bagi saya untuk mengikutinya. Setelah beberapa ratus meter jaraknya, jalur kiri dinding kawah memiliki lereng yang cukup mudah untuk berjalan kaki dan langsung menuju danau. Tampak seperti Swiss dimusim semi: rerumputan dikedua sisi jalan setinggi lutut, burung burung berterbangan dan bernyanyi, gumpalan awan membawa bayangan dingin dan kemudian sinar matahari terang muncul kembali. Setiap saat jalan lurus dan mudah menuruni bukit. Disekitar danau dataran tinggi Eropa tampak kembali dengan pepohonan pinus dibelakangnya. Awan menebal, udara dingin mulai terasa. Saatnya untuk menemukan sumber air panas di mana kita akan berkemah malam ini.

Dawn and morning light coloured the lake a shimmering emerald-blue. Nearby, however, were the thunder claps emanating from the red-hot mouth of Rinjani’s daughter cone. Every few minutes it sent out sinister shudders that rocked us even where we stood some three miles away. We had to go down into the crater close to the erupting mount, circle around and climb up the other side to a ridge for the attack on summit. Apprehension would lurk s every step of the way as to wisdom of the decision to go on. From his rim of the crater it is a tricky and precipitous descent to the lake below. Yes I was reluctant to leave the rim because of the possibilities of a large blast from the erupting Gunung Baru Jari, but I was also reluctant to begin losing the height so hard won on the day before. The track started by hugging the wall of the crater. There was a steep drop on our right and some tricky bits where the track went over a boulder or was interrupted by a fissure. I was elated by the feeling of using a completely different set of muscles to those that had been pummeled on the way up. It was wonderful relief to give my legs a change-nearly as good as a rest. After a drop of a couple of hundred feet, the path left the crater wall as the slope was gentle enough for walkers to head straight for the lake. This was like a Swiss spring: grass either side of the path was knee high; birds zoomed and sang, rags of cloud brought cool shadow and then the bright sun would appear again. And all the time the path went straight and true and gently down the hill. Around the lake shore the highlands of Europe were again evoked by a thick band of pines. By now the cloud had thickened and it began to get cool, the wind hissing in the tops of the trees. Time to find the hot springs where the night’s camp would be.

For the summit

Untuk sampai puncak Untuk tiba kepuncak, kami harus memulai perjalanan pada dini hari. Pendakian ke puncak jauh lebih sulit dan berbahaya dari pada menuruni danau. Jalan setapak berbatu yang rapuh membuat perjalanan ini lebih berbahaya dan diatas semua itu, Kami berjalan dikegelapan malam. Sebuah obor adalah kebutuhan mutlak. Bum, bum, bum, suara gunung berapi mengepul menambah rasa takut. Perjalanan serasa tiada akhir, kami tiba di tepi kawah angin berhembus - sayangnya ini bukan tujuan akhir kami - kami masih harus berjalan ke puncak. Kami terus berjalan, mengikuti gerakan kaki kaki lincah yang telah mendaki gunung ini sebelumnya dan tampaknya mereka tahu apa yang lakukan. Mereka sebaiknya tahu - jika melihat foto-foto rute mencapai puncak Rinjani, jika salah berbelok berarti ‘sayonara’. Pada saat itu kami berusaha untuk tidak terjatuh pada tanjakan yang curam atau jika ada goncangan yang besar dari letusan yang bisa mengguncang kami. Di lain waktu kami bertemu dengan pasir vulkanik yang mudah longsor, jika terselip berarti bergeser mundur. Dan semua ini dicapai hanya dengan bantuan obor. Ketika langit mulai terang, entah mengapa saya merasa akan segera sampai, gelombang energi serasa merasuki diri, dan kemudian tibalah kami dipuncak kecil berbatu, ternyata masih beberapa langkah lagi, setidaknya saya berharap itu, karena tampaknya ada beberapa dari mereka berpendapat serupa. Saya tidak peduli. Saya merasa seperti diatas ketinggian 3.726 meter diatas permukaan bumi. Dari kejauhan tampak Bali dan Sumbawa, walaupun pemandangan perubahan warna langit luar biasa, namun dalam pikiran kami was-was membayangkan jika gunung kecil ditengah danau benarbenar meledak dan memancarkan lahar panasnya. Kecemasan kami tentang Gunung Baru Jari inilah yang membuat kami tidak berlama-lama diatas puncak ini. Kami terburu-buru turun dan keluar secepat mungkin. Itulah yang kami lakukan. Tidak kembali ke danau; turun dan terus turun ke kawah ke sisi berlawanan arah Sembalun. Kami akan segera kembali, untuk sementara kami akan meninggalkan Gunung Baru Jari berperilaku sendiri, kami akan mendaki gunung Rinjani ketika keadaan lebih rileks dan benar-benar dapat mengeksplorasi semua keindahan megah Gunung Rinjani. How to get there

32 | TransNusa

For an attack on the summit we had to leave (with almost no will to do so) somewhere around midnight. The climb up the far side of the crater is steep and a lot more dangerous than previous day’s track down to the lake. Lots of loose rock underfoot makes it even more hazardous, and to top that off it’s dark. A torch is an absolute necessity. The boom, boom, boom of that smell but lively volcano puffing away added to the fear factor. After what seemed forever we arrived at the other wind blown crater rim – unfortunately not our final objective – we still had to get to the summit and I could see it was going to be a real effort of mind over matter ( would it really if I turned around?). Mallory climbed Everest because it was there – I was beginning to wish Rinjani wasn’t! So, on we went, me now following some nimble footed chaps who had climbed the mountain before and seemed to know what they were doing. They had better – I knew from looking at pictures of the summit route along a ridge often a mere on metre wide that any wrong turn would mean ‘sayonara’. At times we were pulling ourselves up steep inclines hoping dearly not to fall backwards or that a larger than normal quake from the erupting one would shake us off. At other times we were on loose volcanic sand where every few feet up meant a slide backwards as well. And all this was achieved with the aid of torches. As the sky began to brighten I somehow sensed were nearing our objective; I had an extra surge of energy and was soon on the small rocky summit, at least I hope it was, as there seemed to be a few of them. I didn’t care. It sure felt like a 3,726-metre top of the world. We could see Bali and Sumbawa in the distance and even though changing sky was awesomely beautiful, what our minds were really on was that mini mountain down below with a mouth we could now see into that appeared to be emitting small atomic blasts. Such was our anxiety about Gunung Baru Jari that we did not hang around very long at the top. We were in hurry to get down and out as quick as possible. Which is what we did. Not back down to the lake either; down to the crater and down the opposite side towards Sembalun. I’ll be back soon, now that Gunung Baru Jari is behaving itself, to climb Rinjani when I can relax more and really explore all of its majestic beauty at leisure.

Café Alberto

Relaxed beach-side dining Angin laut berhembus, deburan ombak terdengar, matahari terbenam tampak begitu dekat, serasa Anda dapat menyentuhnya membuat suasana relax dan romantis di restaurant ini. Dari namanya, sudah jelas sebuah restaurant Italia. Tetapi jangan khawatir, jika Anda memiliki selera Asia, ada beberapa pilihan lain yang Anda dapat nikmati disini seperti sup Tom Yam serta hidangan Asia lain; lumpia, mie goreng dan nasi goreng juga ada. Home-made pasta yang satu ini pasti ada. Ibarat laut tanpa garam sama seperti ibarat Italia tanpa pastanya. Tampak bendera merah putih dan hijau pada menu - jadi cobalah pomodoro con ravioli - pasta yang didalamnya berisi bayam, disiram dengan saus tomat atau pilihan lain dari daging dan hidangan ikan - Café Alberto tepat ditepi pantai sudah tentu memiliki ikan segar.

The salty air, sea breezes, close proximity to the water, sunsets you can reach out and touch make for an atmosphere that spells kick back and relax, you’re where you should be and the ambience is tops. The excellent food and service add to the pleasure of dining at Café Alberto. There’s also home-made pasta – the owner is Italian and no Italian worth his salt would serve anything but the best pasta. It’s definitely an Italian restaurant (the name) but don’t worry if you have Asian or other tastes in food. There’s superb Tom Yam soup and other Asian delights such as lumpia and all the other “gorengs” like mie and nasi (fried rice and fried noodles). But it does sport the red white and green – so try the ravioli con pomodoro – filled pasta with tomato sauce and optional spinach or select from the meats and fish dishes – Café Alberto is as mentioned before right on the beach and the fish is as fresh as.

Untuk mengunjungi Café Alberto sangat mudah - ada layanan antar jemput! Jika Anda berada di Senggigi area.

Betapa mudah untuk diingat sebuah hotel baru hadir di Kupang yang menyuguhkan kenyamanan dan kemudahan.

How easy the name of Kupang’s newest and most comfortable accommodation, rolls off the tongue.

T-MORE hotel & lounge; T-MORE (baca: Timor) sendiri dapat diartikan sebagai nama suatu daerah, Indonesia timur yang penuh warna, Timor juga merupakan nama pulau di mana kota Kupang berada dan ‘More’ yang dapat diartikan lebih; menawarkan hal yang lebh dengan kata lain; sebuah hotel yang memberi pelayanan lebih dari sekedar hotel.

Simply speaking T-MORE says everything: timor is the name of the region, Indonesia’s colourful east, Timor is also the name of the island where Kupang sits and ‘More’ lets you know that you will get that important extra as in ‘more for your money’ and ultimately more of what you expect in a hotel.

Tapi itu bukan hanya sekedar kata-kata. Para pemilik dengan kebijak melihat apa yang dibutuhkan atau lebih penting yang dibutuhkan bagi para pebisnis dan wisatawan, oleh karenanya hadirlah sebuah hotel dengan konsep transit hotel. Pertama adalah nyaman dan mewah tanpa berlebihan – standar hotel di Kupang belum bisa Anda bandingkan dengan hotel di Bali dan Jawa. Sangat menyenangkan mengetahui perjalanan ke Kupang tidak harus repot untuk mencari hotel yang cocok. 99 Kamar hotel yang nyaman, terdiri dari 87 deluxe room, 9 superior room dan 3

But it’s not just merely words. The owners have obviously in their wisdom looked at what the area needed or more importantly what business people and tourists needed and in doing so have come up with a hotel that addresses those needs. Firstly the level of comfort is close to luxurious without being overdone – remember in Kupang you’re far from the resorts of Bali and Java. It’s nice now to know a trip to Kupang doesn’t have to mean a dingy room with a noisy ac that may or may not cool you from the region’s hot sun! The rooms (96 deluxe & three suite rooms) are bright and cheery and as you’d expect a 21st century room to be.

And with T-more’s transit lounge concept you hardly have to spend any time at the airport waiting for your flight – wait in the comfort of the hotel’s lounge and be driven to your flight shortly before it leaves – seamless! Finding acceptable restaurant facilities in Kupang used to be a major headache for business people and tourists alike – below average food that had all visitors anxious to get home for a decent meal is a thing of the past. Whether it be breakfast or dinner, business lunch or special event, T-more’s internationally experienced chef has dining covered. * Photo by Danny Wetangtera

Armada Jet Baru TransNusa Dia mengatakan, pesawat baru itu merupakan kerja sama operasional antara PT. TransNusa Aviation Mandiri dengan Nusantara Air Charter ( NAC ). “Pesawat ini adalah hasil KSO kami dengan NAC selama setahun. Pesawat ini tidak akan kami beri logo Avia Star atau TransNusa. Awaknya berasal dari NAC, hanya seragamnya yang akan diganti dengan seragam TransNusa, “ jelasnya. Alain menjelaskan saat ini manajemen belum membuat rute penerbangan. “Kami masih melayani penerbangan ke Ende, Maumere, Waingapu, Labuan Bajo dan Denpasar. Mengenai rute baru, masih dalam perencanaan, yakni Kupang – Makasar,” imbuhnya. Sementara itu, Plt. Kadis Perhubungan Propinsi, Ir. Stefanus Ratu Udju mengharapkan agar penambahan armada tersebut dapat meningkatkan kelancaran transportasi NTT.

BAE-146-200 Manajemen PT. TransNusa Aviation Mandiri menambah satu lagi pesawat jet untuk melayani masyarakat Nusa Tenggara Timur ( NTT ). Awak pesawat berkapasitas 85 seat. Hal tersebut disampaikan oleh Direktur Keuangan PT. TransNusa Aviation Mandiri, Alain Niti Susanto, seusai acara pemberkatan armada baru itu di Bandara El Tari, Jumat (30/9/2011) sore. Menurutnya, dengan bertambahnya armada baru itu, maka jumlah pesawat yang dimiliki sebanyak lima unit. Tiga diantaranya bernama TransNusa dan satunya lagi bernama AviaStar.

“Saya berterima kasih atas komitmen PT. TransNusa dalam meningkatkan pelayanan transportasi di NTT. Namun saya berharap, komitmen itu berada dalam koridor aturan keselamatan dan turut mendukung perekonomian NTT,” ujar Ratu Udju. Doa pemberkatan pesawat jet tersebut dilakukan Pater Bernard Beru, SVD segera setelah pesawat landing. Pemberkatan dilakukan dengan memerciki kabin pesawat itu dengan air yang telah diberkati.

Bandar Udara Internasional Lombok oleh Presiden Susilo Bambang Yodhoyono Kami, 20/10/2011, Presiden Republik Indonesia, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) meresmikan Bandara Internasional Lombok (BIL). Acara ini ditandai dengan pemukulan Gendang Beleq serta penandatanganan prasasti, di halaman Terminal Utama Bandara Internasional Lombok. Dalam acara ini, Presiden SBY didampingi Menteri Perhubungan EE Mangindaan, Menteri BUMN Dahlan Iskan, Gubernur NTB Dr. TGH. M. Zainul Majdi dan Dirut PT. Angkasa Pura I Tommy Sutomo. Menurut Presiden, hadirnya BIL di Provinsi NTB sangat tepat waktu. Hal itu dikarenakan, secara nasional pada saat ini jasa atau bisnis angkutan udara beberapa tahun terakhir meningkat secara signifikan. “Kebutuhan masyarakat akan trasnportasi udara sudah semakin meningkat. Itu menunjukkan bahwa ekonomi terus tumbuh dan penghasilan masyarakat juga semakin meningkat,� kata presiden. Sedangkan alasan secara lokal atau provinsial, NTB dipandang sangat potensial untuk menjadi kawasan dan tujuan wisata, baik internasional

maupun domestik. Dengan demikian, sangat dibutuhkan adanya bandar udara yang bertaraf internasional. Pada kesempatan itu pula, Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono menyatakan persetujuannya atas usulan Gubernur Nusa Tenggara Barat TGH M Zainul Majdi, agar landasan pacu Bandara Internasional Lombok diperpanjang lagi guna didarati pesawat berbadan lebar seperti pesawat pengangkut jamaah haji.

Unstoppable Seb – can his winning steak continue in Abu Dhabi and Brazil?

S

ebastian Vettel would be the first to admit that the ride to his maiden title in 2010 was pretty rocky. At the season finale in Abu Dhabi four drivers were in with a shout at the championship and it was only Vettel’s commanding performance which secured him the drivers’ crown. But that was last year.

Hamilton has two wins, two podiums and zero poles. Button has three wins, eight podiums and zero poles. And Alonso has one win, seven podiums and zero poles. Perhaps most tellingly, team mate Mark Webber has zero wins, eight podiums and three pole positions.

2011 has been altogether different. This year he’s led throughout. For the past few months it’s not been a question of if Vettel would do the double. Distinguished rivals including former world champions Jenson Button, Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton have been left to fight over the scraps whilst the frequently untouchable Vettel has glided towards a second successive championship barely buffeted. Nobody has held a candle to Vettel. Nine wins from 15 races would be dominant enough, but when Vettel’s not been busy winning he’s consistently finished on the podium - only once (ironically at his home round in Germany) has he failed to make the top three. It’s an incredible feat, emphasised by the tally of wins and podiums scored by his rivals.

Matching skill and consistency with startlingly raw pace and ambition, Vettel has stepped into a different league, dismissing any suggestion that his title last year was a lucky fluke and proving instead that 2010 was merely the beginning. So Formula One’s youngest points’ scorer (USA 2007), youngest pole sitter (Italy 2008), youngest race winner (Italy 2008) and youngest world champion (Abu Dhabi, 2010) has become its youngest double world champion (Japan, 2011), aged just 24 years and 98 days. And, just four years into his career, Vettel’s barely started. Schumacher better watch his back. There’s a new record breaker in town. Congratulations Sebastian!

Join us for all the excitement as the season winds down at the Arena on November 12 (Abu Dhabi) and November 27 (Brazil) and see if his winning streak continues or will the likes of Hamilton, Button and Alonso have a final say.
