Additionally, Bali Tourism Watch attemps to discuss the current issue of tourism in Bali including events, policy and conflicts. Here are the most interesting tourism issues happening on the island now.


Mount Agung Alert


Bali, 9 October 2017


The Government of Bali has put Mount Agung - the highest mountain in Bali on alert since 22 September 2017 as it is about to erupt seen from the natural and scientific indications appear on site; and this alert status shall continue until 15 October 2017 (National Disaster Management Agency 9 October 2017).



Mount Agung was lastly erupted in 1963 killing more than thousands of people living on the slop of the mountain or villages located close to this mountain and destroying millions of hectares fertile land. Many local people within the area of the eruption were evacuated to safe regions and even finally migrated to other islands including Lombok, Sulawesi and Sumatra who are now permanently settle there.


More than one hundred thousand people were evacuated to safer places including Manggis, Sidemen, Klungkung, Badung and Denpasar to anticipate the victims of the deadly volcanic eruptions. The government of Bali supplies all their principal needs to ensure they are living properly in the refuging camps which accounted for 427 sites across the island (National Disaster Management Agency 6 October 2017).   


Minister of Tourism Visit Karangasem


Minister of Tourism of Republic of Indonesia, Arief Yahya confirms Bali as a safe tourist destination (Kompas 5 October 2017). During his visit to Bali in relation to the Alert status of Mount Agung – the highest mountain in Bali, he confirms that it is save to visit the island of paradise – BALI. He even visited Besakih temple which is located about 9 km from the mountain to ensure that Bali is really save for holiday.


The visit of this particular minister to this biggest temple complex is directly hosted by Vice Regent of Karangasem I Wayan Arta Dipa. This is the way the local government to rebound the tourism condition which tightly affected by the issue of Mount Agung alert status.


During a home conversation with Dr I Nengah Subadra - a tourism scholar from Karangasem Regency on Wednesday 18 September 2017 in Pesangkan Village, Arta Dipa Argues that “Bali especially Karangasem is safe to visit. Only the areas within 12 kilometres from Mount Agung are stipulated as hazardous zones. Meanwhile other tourism sites such as Candidasa, Tenganan, Sidemen, Tirtha Gangga are fully safe to explore. So no need to be aware of visiting the other entire parts of the region”. 


On the same vein, Governor of Bali - Made Mangku Pastika while meeting with Wahid Supriyadi the Indonesian Ambassador for Russia also confirms that Bali is still safe to visit even if Mount Agung is still on alert (Nusa Bali 16 October 2017). Only the regions nearby the mountain is strictly forbiden to enter, while other are still fee and can be explored. Russia seems to be good market for future Bali's tourism.  



The Regional Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPBD) of Bali keeps monitoring the current condition of Mount Agung to anticipate immediate disaster that might rise as consequence of this alert status. This agency also coodinates well with the National Search and Rescue Agency by locating thier officials, trucks and ambulances in security posts located in the hazardous zones including, Pesangkan Bali (Field Observation 18 October 2017).
