Mount Agung in Bali is one of the most active volcanos in the world. In the last two months it has been very active and erupted several time. On July 2, a series of eruptions in Mount Agung saw ash plumes stretching almost 2,000 mts high because of which Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali had to be closed.

One Sushil Rai (@sushilkrrai) took to twitter and asked Swaraj, "is it safe to travel bali. We have a bali trip on 11.08.18 to 17.08.18. Is it safe? Is their ny advisory has been issued by our govt. Kindly guide us soon."

Responding to this, the External Affairs Minister (EAM) wrote, "I will have to consult the volcano there."

The Indonesian archipelago is located on the so-called Ring of Fire in the Pacific, an area of great seismic and volcanic activity, that records thousands of mostly small to moderate tremors every year.

Even after recent earthquake in Indonesia's Lombok island, it was being speculated that the tremours may lead to Mount Agung erupting.
