A large number of unlicensed and illegal buildings are obstructing the picturesque panorama provided by the caldera of Bali's Mount Batur.

Long tolerated under the guise of local businesses, local residents at Kintamani are now calling on officials to take steps against these eyesores obstructing the view of Mount Batur and the adjoining volcanic lake. The chairman of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI-Bangli), Ketut Putranata, told NusaBali, "There are many illegal buildings standing there when in fact the tourists coming to Kintamani are tourists seeking nature."

The PHRI-Bangli chairman complained that his organization lack any enforcement powers against the illegal structures standing along the caldera’s edge.

Putranata, who hails from Kintamani, said local officials refuse to take strong action against the owner of the illegal structures. As a result, the natural beauty of Kintamani is being degraded by the illegal structures that house accommodation and restaurants.

The PHRI-Bangli chairman called for a halt to new restaurants at Kintamani in order to preserve a quality presentation and quality product for Kintamani visitors.

Meanwhile, the head of the Culture and Tourism Service for Bangli, Wayan Adanyana, admittted that the problem depicted by Putranata was very real. He accepted that the unregistered and unlicensed buildings obstruct the panoramic view of Mt. Batur and Lake Batur. Describing the problem as "classic," Adnyana washed his hands of the problem, claiming enforcement was a matter for the regency's licensing authority.
