The potential in the Ngalau Anak Aia Ilang karst area includes hydrological potential, land, landscape beauty and limestone cave ornaments. The hydrological potential in this karst area can be utilized to fulfill daily water needs, the land potential is used for agriculture and plantations, the landscape potential can be used as a natural tourist attraction, the environment can be used as a means of education as well as the potential for people's livelihoods. Utilization of the karst ngalau environmental services is still low both in terms of utilization of its natural resources as well as utilization in terms of science, environmental tourism and as a habitat for fauna and flora which are not very utilized.
