Over the weekend, local experts and authorities have given the official go-ahead to downgrade the alert levels at Bali’s Mount Agung from level 4 to level 3. The news came together with resetting the safety parameter to a 4-kilometer radius and giving some much-needed respite to local residents, living within the vicinity of the crater.

Bali’s International Airport continues to operate according to it published schedules, as well all other services, excursions and tours, accommodation and transfer remain fully operational

Mount Agung Update

Wednesday, 31 January 2018

The situation around Mount Agung on Bali has been closely watched since September 2017. Although the activity of Gunung Agung has decreased over the last weeks the alert level remains on level IV. The radius which is not accessible has been reduced to a 6km radius (previously 10-12km). 

We can reconfirm that Bali remains safe and it is very much business as usual on the island. Nevertheless we continuously monitor with local authorities, on-the-spot experts, and via various online channels.
