Since a drastic increase of mountain national park visitors, the littering problems were emerging more than ever. Many hikers, especially the amateurs, keep ignoring the park’s rules about littering. Many sanctions be it from national park itself and nature lovers community has been deployed, yet the problems still occurs until now. This research has found a gap between these solutions to mountain’s litter problem. The lack of education to prevent hikers from littering is actually, needed. Not just cleaning the existing litters. This research was conducted using descriptive qualitative methods, to acquire data such as interview with the personas, questionnaire, and observation. The results of the study show that many hikers already know of the banning of littering in the mountain, but they didn’t know how to prevent that, ironically those littering behaviors related from the methods they use since they packed their apparels. Creative strategy is used as the framework of this comprehensive method. The author adopted a set of simulation process named 5A (Aware, Appeal, Ask, Act, Advocate). This method helped author to place each visual communication in the right time, places and ways, matching with the researches and findings.
