Lake Batur (Danau Batur), Kintamani
(3.7/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our international travel planner, Kintamani attractions like Lake Batur (Danau Batur) can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • We rented a boat and took us in to the Terunyan and visited their burial site. This was a special experience that I will never forget. They are laid on the ground and it gets added offerings with on the journey. It was a body from the same day and another 6-7 bodies that were starting to break down and lots of skulls.
