VISITTAMBORA is the name that we choose for our website, several years ago, when Mt.Tambora was almost unknown, in order to start promoting the region.
is the ‘Community Development & Outdoor Recreation Organization’ in the village of Oi Bura. They act as expedition organizer and ensure everything for the trekking (transportation, porters, equipment, food and beverage).
Nurul Wahyuti is the head of the organization and runs the guesthouse. She was born & raised in Bima city and has her degree in Human Resources. Her main interests are guest relations and the wellbeing of the people around her. She supports the people in the nearby villages in order to raise their living standards.
