He went on to say that there are many benefits to be derived by the UNESCO appointment, including cost-free promotion to a worldwide audience. Akhyarudin said the appointment would also attract many foreign investors.

The Mount Batur caldera is located in the village of Kintamani in the regency of Bangli is one of 6 Geoparks applications put forth by the Indonesian government.

The other areas awaiting Geopark confirmation from UNESCO are: Lake Toba, North Sumatra, Merangin in Jambi; Mount Rinjani in Lombok; Raja Ampat in Papua and the Kars Sewa region in Central Java.

In conclusion Akhyarudin said: Mount Batur is ready to become a Geopark. The people are prepared to support this. With the confirmation by UNESCO the news of the beauty of the caldera will now go international.”
