This is reference to the destructive eruptions by Mount Agung, that have affected this part of Bali back in 1963 and before. Tulamben is one of the most well-known dive locations in Bali, because you can find the USAT liberty Shipwreck here and many other underwater creatures (see our blog ‘USAT liberty Shipwreck for more information).
