Central Java’s state-owned Indonesian Forestry Company is determined to develop nature tourism. The company’s CEO, Heru Siswanto said it currently has 27 sites that can be transformed into destinations of nature tourism. So far, only 12 of them are well-maintained. “We will revitalize the existing sites,” Heru said yesterday.
One of the forests to be revitalized is the Penggaron Nature Conservation Forest in Susukan village at Ungaran, Semarang. “We will build a water boom and other facilities there,” Heru added. The water boom construction will begin in January 2010 with an investment of Rp 120 billion.
