Geopark Tour

Geopark tour
Geopark is single, unified geographical areas where sites and landscapes of geological significance are managed with a holistic concept of protection, education, and sustainable development. It uses its geological heritage, in connection with all other aspects of the area’s natural and cultural heritage, to enhance awareness and understanding of key issues facing society, such as using our Earth’s resources sustainably, mitigating the effects of climate change and reducing the impact of natural disasters.
Sianok Valley (Ngarai Sianok) located at Bukittinggi City, the city where our founding father, Dr. Bung Hatta was born, (100 km from Padang) is one of the Geoparks that recently got a certificate as National Geopark. In this occasion, all interested conference participants will be set to enjoy a one-day geopark tour at the end of the conference within and surrounding of the valley including visiting biological and cultural diversity. Visiting traditional shopping market including culinary is the moment that everybody will love it. Further detail of the tour will be announced later.
