Bali, 21 December 2017


The Mount Agung eruption has affected the number of tourists visiting Bali, more particulalry Goa Lawah Temple, a cultural tourism site located in Klungkung Regency, Bali. Since Mount Agung stated be on alert which termed as Level IV by the National Disaster Mitigation Agency on 27 November 2017, the number of tourists visiting Goa Lawah decreased sharply (National Disaster Mitigation Agency, 21 December 2017)


Many tourists have considered Bali is not a safe place to visit, but many also think that it is fine to visit Bali as the eruption of the mountain only affected the area within 13 kilometres while other areas remain very safe.


This week, there are between 50 and 60 foreign tourists visiting Goa Lawah Temple during the day. This suggests that there has been a slow increase of the tourists visiting the temple. It is important to note that there used to be hundreds of foreign tourists visiting Goa Lawah Temple every day.

The temple manager expect more tourists to come to the temple by the end of the year as tourism of Bali start to recover.He argues "Bali is actually still safe to visit since the Mount Agung eruption does not affect all regions of the island. It is only affected the area within 13 kilometers which stipulated as "Dangerous Zone" while other regions is still safe".  Goa Lawah is far away, about 35 kilometers from Mount Agung. So, please never worry to visit the temple (Personal Conversation with temple Manager, 21 December 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).
