Dutch Hiker Dies After Fall on Bali’s Mount Agung

Breathtaking view of Mount Agung, Bali's majestic volcanic peak.

Bangli – A Dutch national, Fleur Biegstraaten, tragically died while hiking Mount Agung in Bali.

Fleur was hiking without a local guide, accompanied only by her Danish friend, Patrick Savskov. The pair began their ascent via the Pura Pasar Agung Sebudi route on Thursday, May 23, 2024.

Unaccompanied

They undertook the hike with minimal equipment and no guide. During the climb, Fleur slipped into a 15-meter-deep ravine at an elevation of approximately 1,600 meters.

Patrick immediately descended to seek help, reaching the Pura Pasar Agung parking area in Sebudi Village.

Still Conscious

A social forestry group responded and ascended to the accident site to assist. They evacuated Fleur, carrying her down to the parking area before transporting her to Selat Health Center by car.

Sadly, Fleur was pronounced dead upon arrival at the health center.

Selat Police Chief, AKP Dewa Gede Ariana, confirmed the incident, stating that Fleur likely died en route to the health center due to her injuries, which included a fractured jaw, a broken upper left arm, abdominal abrasions, and a broken front tooth. There were no signs of foul play; her death was deemed an accident caused by a slip during the hike.
