KOTABARU, iNews.id – The manager of the Mount Meranti tourism object in Kotabaru Regency, South Kalimantan (South Kalimantan) has begun to clean up and prepare to welcome the arrival of domestic and foreign tourists. Recently the number of tourists has started to rise.
“Recently, the number of visits, especially local tourists, has increased dramatically, along with the improvement and fulfillment of facilities and infrastructure in the Gunung Meranti tourism object itself,” said the coordinator of tourism management, Kholil, Monday (16/8/2021).
Besides aiming to enjoy the natural beauty of the Meranti mountains and its surroundings, many visits to these attractions are also in the context of research. Meranti Putih plant covering an area of 8.3 hectares on Mount Meranti has a myriad of potential to be researched.
A number of facilities that can be enjoyed by visitors include animal houses, houses of various birds, beautiful resting places, gazebos, meeting places at the top of the mountain, zoos, places to stay overnight with hotel facilities, and other facilities.
Besides Mount Meranti, a number of tourist attractions in Kotabaru are starting to be visited by many domestic tourists, including Gedambaan Beach or Sarangtiung Beach.
Previously, Deputy Chairman of Commission III of the Kotabaru DPRD, Gewsima Mega Putra, said that the Kotabaru Regency Tourism, Youth and Sports Office had made a proposal to be offered to investors.
“However, until now there has not been a single investor who is interested,” he said.
Some of the patterns offered by the Kotabaru Regency Government are related to the pattern of cooperation in tourism management.
“Essentially there are investors who are interested first, after that the management will be discussed for mutual agreement,” he said.
He hopes that with the entry of investors, the management of the Sarang Tiung tourism object can be better, and can become a source of income for the region.
