Habitat for Humanity Indonesia today announced it is partnering with Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) to create Habitat's first eco-tourism village of more than 420 homes and guest accommodations near some of Indonesia's most picturesque ancient temples.
The development will take place in the village of Soran, located near the famous Prambanan Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built around 850 AD. The village is also located near Mount Merapi, the nation's most famous volcano, which erupted last year.
