  • A trek in the Balinese jungle, doesn't fail to. A spectacular nature, the strange trees. We arrive at a temple... And eventually, the crossing of the Lake by canoe. Really to do

  • Lake Tamblingan is one of the Twin Lakes along with Lake Buyan, they are both located in the caldera of Bedugul Volcano, now extinct. The two lakes formed a single lake until about 1800, when a landsl...  more »
  • Great to see these mountain lakes, on the panoramic road to see them in their beauty we saw many eateries that invite you to linger. Our guide told us that the Balinese family come here really like around the Lake there is a very dense vegetation, I don't think it's risky to call it jungle, so ' that organize tours for the adventurous but we were interested more than anything else to a relaxing holiday.

  • One the three lakes in Bedugul, conserved forest, Tamblingan temple Lake Tamblingan is one the three lakes in Bedugul area, next to lake Buyan. It is around 20 minutes ride from Lake Bratan. Tamblingan is derived from Tamba (cure, heal) and Eling (spiritual awareness). Lake Tamblingan is a conserved area, surrounded by forest and bordered by mountains, very few development in the area, so do not expect the place to be a touristy places crowded with hotel, cafes and shops. There were almost none. By the lake is the large three tower Tamblingan temple. An interesting architecture for photography, although the complex is a simple rectangle shaped temple walled with stone bricks. Regular visitors are prohibited to enter into the inner part of the temple. Beyond the lake to the mountain, there are over 10 temples including Pura Endek, Pura Sang Hyang Kawuh, Pura Tirta Mengening, Pura Naga Loka (dragon realms) and temples at the top of mountains. The place has an air of being mystical. Drawbacks : place is dirty, with plastic garbages and food wastes. The lakeshore is a swamp, not suitable for walking. Some teenagers use the plain grassland as motorbike trekking/racing track right in front of the main temple.
