Rambo Chan was the Team Lead for the Gunung Kutu trekking. Assisted by Rocky Dan, it was quite a record to have 52 trekkers in that trip. I presume that must be the good name of Rambo and Rocky that draw the crowds.

Mount Rinjani or Gunung Rinjani is an active volcano in Indonesia on the island of Lombok West Nusa Tenggara (NTB). It rises to 3,726 metres (12,224 ft), making it the second highest volcano in Indonesia, and similar in height to Mount Fuji.
The 6km by 8km oval-shaped caldera is filled partially by a crater lake known as Segara Anak ('Child of the Sea') and is approximately 200m above sea level and estimated at being around 200m deep. The caldera also contains hot springs.
The first historical eruption occurred in September 1847. The most recent eruption of Mount Rinjani was in May 2010.
Rinjani erupted three times on 22 May 2010 with activity continuing until early 23 May. According to the volcano's official monitoring agency, ash from Mount Barujari has been reported as rising up to two km into the atmosphere and has damaged crops. The volcano is not currently threatening villagers. Lava flowed into the caldera lake, pushing its temperature up from 21°C to 35°C, while smoke spread 12 km.
