At the time, Indonesia proposed 6 candidates including Rinjani Mountain, Toba Lake, Sewu Karst, Merangin, and Raja Ampat. Fortunately, one of these candidates was chosen (which is none other than Batur Caldera). The prime reason is due to the presence of surge sediment having the age of more than 5 thousands of years!
