Bali to boost mountain tourism
Published on Nov 20, 2012
Authorities in Bali are planning to increase tourism at Mount Batur, after the volcano was given UNESCO Global Geopark status earlier this year. Indonesia's Tourism & Creative Economy Minister, Mari Elka Pangestu, was reported saying that “historical and cultural tourism, as well as medical and wellness tourism” could be developed, while hot springs were also a possible draw for the area. Located 60km north of Denpasar, Mount Batur is an active volcano, and features a large lake in its caldera.
