(4/14/2017)

A large number of homes in the Bali Aga village of Trunyan on the shores of Lake Batur in Kintamani are being submerged below the rising waters on the ancient volcanic lake.

NusaBali reports that homes, agricultural fields, and roads are now under water in the village uniquely renowned in Bali for its practice of leaving their dead to decompose in the open air on the lake’s edge.

The flooding conditions at Trunyan are causing a downturn in tourist visitors to the village.

Local villagers are appealing to regional and provincial authorities to build sea walls and increase the height of local roads.

In normal times, some 30 tourists visit the village each day by boat. However, since February when the rising water phenomenon commenced, the number of visitors has decreased dramatically and local incomes derived from tourism have also declined.

Observers in the field estimate the water level of the lake has risen 1-meter. A breakwater 400 meters in length that protected the village from waves is now under water.

Meanwhile, the head of public works for the Bangli regency, I Wayan Lawe, told NusaBali he was unaware of the situation in the Trunyan Village and insisted he had received no formal report on the rising waters. Lawe promised he would look into the matter.
