An ATR 72-500 aircraft, registered as PK-WGF, landed at Denpasar Ngurah Rai İnternational Airport after an uneventful flight.
After touchdown, the aircraft was instructed by the tower controller to exit the runway via Taxiway N4. While the aircraft was on Taxiway N4, the pilot was instructed by the tower controller to contact ground controller. The ground controller instructed the aircraft to continue the taxi by following the aircraft that was pushing back from parking stand A22 to runway 09 for departure.
After the aircraft exited Taxiway N4 and taxied on the apron taxiway, the SIC asked the assigned parking stand to the ground controller and was informed to park on Parking Stand A41.

While the SIC communicating with the ground controller, the PIC turned the aircraft to the left toward taxiway NW7. The aircraft main wheels stuck in the apron’s ditch.
