Various fires have destroyed several hundred hectares of forest and land at various points in the Central Java Mountains, causing the authorities to close roads and hiking trails leading to various popular tourist sites, including Mount Lawu, Mount Sindoro, and Mount Sumbing.
Strong winds, dry seasonal weather conditions, and difficulties in accessing affected areas have hindered firefighting efforts.
Individuals wishing to visit these sites (especially hikers and tourists) are advised to postpone travel until the situation stabilizes. Individuals already in the area should anticipate road restrictions and comply with any recommendations issued by the local authorities.
