Mount Agung Alert Level Downgraded Notification

November 1, 2017 Destination ASEAN No Comments Email Email

The Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources have stated on Sunday, 29 October 2017 at 4.00 pm, that the alert level of Mount Agung has been downgraded from four (critical) to three (watch). Therefore, the red zone area has now decreased to 6 km from the mountain peak. The evacuation zone surrounding the Mount Agung has been reduced to only six villages within the red zone.

Centre of Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation will continue to monitor Mount Agung activity until it is back to normal status. Any update will always be communicated publicly.

We would like to assure you that Bali is safe to visit with less than 2% of land mass marked as red zone.

Banyan Tree Ungasan, Bali is located at the tip of Bali’s southern peninsula, 89 km away from Mount Agung. Tourist attractions such as Ubud area and popular beaches (Sanur Area, Kuta Beach and Jimbaran) are 51 km and 72 km respectively away from the volcano. Bali’s International Airport is still open as usual with daily flights.
