Lake Batur (Danau Batur), Kintamani

4.0
Take in the fresh mountain air and dramatic landscape of Lake Batur (Danau Batur), a crescent-shaped body of water in the shadow of an active volcano. Mount Batur sits at the center of a vast caldera--a crater-like basin formed by volcanic activity--of which the lake fills the southeastern side. Take a boat out on the lake, trek to the top of the volcano for stunning views, and then go for a dip in the hot springs overlooking the water. Add some culture to your visit with a stop at the onsite museum to learn more about the history of the volcano, and visit Pura Ulun Danu Batur--considered the second most important temple in Bali. The temple sits on the rim of the caldera, having been destroyed by lava flows when it was originally located within the basin itself.

  • The vendors are EXTREMELY pushy, either give them some money and let them go, or just zone out and ignore them.
  • It has beautiful view, especially when the sky is clear.
  • Awesome....let's conserve it.
  • Place where tradition, was kept naturaly generation to genaration
  • Lake was better viewed from afar. At this point, it was dirty and really not worth the stop.

Where to stay in Kintamani

As most visitors choose to stay in other parts of Bali and make day trips to Kintimani, you won't find a huge range of accommodations in the area. Options consist mainly of small guesthouses and bungalows, with only a handful of hotels. Because of their proximity to the start of the trail up Mount Batur, the villages of Toya Bungkah and Kedisan--on the shores of Lake Batur--have the best range of places to stay.
