The Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park (TNBTS) has increased the visitor quota for the popular destination in East Java to 1,265 people a day.

The park had previously limited the number of tourists to 20 percent of its normal capacity, or 739 people per day. With the new rule, the visitor quota is now 40 percent of its normal capacity. 

While being more lenient with regard to the number of visitors allowed in, the park now applies age limits, banning visitors below 10 years and above 60 years of age. 

As reported by kompas.com, the agency's public relations head, Sarif Hidayat, said the aforementioned regulations were the result of an evaluation meeting attended by representatives from the administrations of Malang, Pasuruan and Probolinggo as well as the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) and other partners of the agency. 

Visitors are required to buy tickets online at the park’s website

The TNBTS officially reopened on Aug. 28. (kes)
