Mount Batur and its history in the Geopark Batur Museum
#BulgariStories

Dedicated to volcano enthusiasts or simply to those who want to discover the geological origins of the Island of Bali, the Geopark Batur Museum offers the opportunity to know the most important geopark on the island thanks to a well-stocked collection of geological and historical finds, models, projections and displays located in the large and modern building in Bangli Regency. Inserted into the global network of Geoparks by UNESCO in 2012, the Batur Geopark includes two calderas, an external ("old") and an internal ("young") one in which lies a crescent-shaped lake (7.5 kilometers long and 2.5 kilometers wide), known as Lake Batur, which contributes to the grandiose landscape scenery of the area. The museum helps to understand the uniqueness of the geology of the area of volcanic origin, of the flora and fauna through the exhibition path in the rooms of the second floor, dedicated to biodiversity, and the screenings of educational films in the Auditorium. The Hall that welcomes visitors shows with a large model the tectonic activity that gave rise to Bali as an island and the underwater activity that occurred over 20 million years ago.
