Latest Update on Mount Agung

Bali Volcano Eruption - Mount Agung

The Volcano in Bali, Mount Agung, erupted on the 25th of November. At first, the volcano emitted clouds of ashes and steam into the air, rising up to at around 1,500 meters. Sometime in the night and early morning of the 26th of November the eruption entered the magmatic state, as Mr. Sutopo Purwo Nugroho from the National Disaster Agency (BNPB) confirmed at around 3pm.

Currently, the volcano is still active and emits smokes and ash regularly. However the situation is overall very calm and there is no threat for visitors. 

The airport is operating under normal conditions. Still, some airlines might decide not to service Bali due to their own rules and regulations, and travel insurance policies.
