Mt. Gede Pangrango to be closed in mid-August
A dry spell expected at the height of the dry season in mid-August has prompted authorities to announce a temporary closure of Mt. Gede Pangrango for the public.
In a circular dated July 1, the Mt. Gede Pangrango National Park office explains that the measure is aimed at anticipating the risk of forest fire, improving security in the area and conducting a clean-up operation, kompas.com reported.
The closure is to be in effect for 10 days, from Aug. 12 to 21.
This means visitors will be unable to celebrate Independence Day at the mountain on Aug. 17.
