Government Donates Speed Boat for Lake Batur

New Boat Part of Overall Plan to Make Kintamani Area More Attractive to Bali Visitors.

(3/30/2009) In an effort to draw more island visitors to the Lake Batur region of the Kintamani volcanoes, the Central Government has given a Rp. 600 million (US$53,600) speed boat to the regional government of Bangli.

As reported by BisnisBali, at a hand-over ceremony presided over by Indonesian Minister of Culture and Tourism, Jero Wacik said he hoped the new tourist boat would allow the Bangli government to realize the untapped potential of Lake Batur. Lake Batur is a fresh water lake that sits in the crater of a former volcano in the shadow of another, still-active volcano.

The new boat is offering tours of the lake, including views of the Bali Adat village of Trunyan a unique location where the remains of dead are left exposed to the elements.

The area also offers outstanding panoramas, mountain trekking and healing hot springs.
