Alas Kedaton, an Eco-friendly Tourist Attraction

The tourist attraction having been managed by the Kukuh customary village since 1986 with a total area of 12 hectares is able to preserve the forest and various animals living at the location. Besides, the object relying on the cuteness monkeys and flying fox is also able to give the economy for local people.

It was revealed in the assessment of Alas Kedaton as representative of Tabanan in the Bali Environmental Management Competition for the individual, group and private category. In addition to the conservation of rare plants and animals, the tourist attraction is also able to maintain the beauty of the three springs in the forest areas. “We indeed preserve the existing springs. Other than for holy water, they are also intended for the animal life in the forest and for the community,” said Operations Manager of Alas Kedaton tourist attraction, IB Suryawan.

In addition, the tourist attraction commonly visited by domestic and foreign travelers also had waste management, where it was made selection to organic and plastic waste. Dust bins had been provided throughout the area of the object, including preparing the motorcycle and small waste carts to carry the waste. “We also employ some janitors to maintain the sanitation every day from the morning to night,” he said.

Natural preservation was always well maintained. Planting trees continued to do, either by the management itself, Kukuh communities or the students from the Udayana University. The types of trees planted were such as rough tree fern, teak, durian and other local trees. “Probably due to our seriousness to preserve the tourist attraction, we can achieve numerous awards of Bali to national level,” he said.

According to him, the forest at Alas Kedaton was classified into sustainable one. Local people did not dare to cut down or collect decomposed trees as firewood. “In preserving this rural nature, our customary village has unwritten rules so that no residents dare to cut down trees in the forest. Besides, there is also a belief that damaging any contents of the forest will be disturbed by the forest dwellers,” he said.

Alas Kedaton also had an advantage as preserver of cultural site such as the Dalem Temple of Alas Kedaton along with a heritage of historic site. “The sustainable site has become an advantage for the Alas Kedaton to be a potential recipient of Kalpataru Award whose assessment has been undertaken some time ago,” said IB Suryawan accompanied by the chief of Kukuh customary village and its headman.
