Since it was used for film shooting of the Eat, Pray, Love starred by famous artist Julia Roberts, the lava area at Toya Bungkah Batur, Kintamani is now visited by many tourists. Each day, there are always tourists especially those coming to just look around the existing natural beauty on the edge of Lake Batur.

To get to the shooting location of the Eat, Pray, Love or all this time known as the Julia Roberts Point, visitors must walk about 500 meters long from the highway. This happens because there is no road access to the location. Along the way, visitors will pass through volcanic rocks and a variety of horticultural crops such as onions, tomatoes and peppers cultivated by local residents. To find out the shooting location, visitors can read directly an information board on the edge of the lake. The short information is bilingually written in Bahasa Indonesia and English.

One of the local residents, Putu Ariana, said that since the location was used for film shooting, the pillow lava area is visited by many tourists, mostly consisting of foreign tourists. “Not long ago, my brother took tourists from Australia to this location,” he explained. Visitors coming to the Julia Roberts Point are usually driven by curiosity with natural beauty featured in the film. He said that before used as a shooting location, it was rarely visited by tourists. Most tourists coming to Toya Bungkah will skip this location. “But now, more and more tourists are coming here. Other than to Julia Roberts Point, they also visit the area of Batur caldera,” he said.

Now, to keep the area of Batur caldera including the Julia Roberts Point clean, hundreds of residents from several villages came down to pick up plastic waste in the region of Toya Bungkah, Wednesday (Mar. 2). At least, one truck of plastic waste could be collected and disposed of to regional landfill at Landih.
Headman of Songan B, Jero Lanang, said that the cleanup action to collect plastic waste will be carried out continuously. The 15 villages in the lakeside area are expected to get involved so that sanitation of the terrestrial garden is well maintained. “All this time, the Batur Geopark is known quite unclean. Through this action, we invite the community to participate in maintaining the sanitation of the geopark area,” he said. (BTN/kmb)
