  • The crystal clear water of lake Batur serenading through Mt Batur, is a view straight out of a painting. We were there, not for the beautiful trek but for something #OFFBEATISH. Hidden in the mountain...  more »
  • In response to Google yet curious about this village. With a hired driver who has been here never go there. The mountain road towards village was narrow and bad but in itself an experience. We drove even on a piece of road that altogether is flooded by the Batur Lake. Soon came a "Guide" hit on a moped to the village would be some us pilots. Once there, we were told that it would cost $150 for two us go there by boat. Of course I refused. After some negotiation it was 900,000 IRD for 2 people plus our driver. Yet another 54 euros. But okay we are there yet and we want to go are there for a reason. From the village, we had a piece of sail across the Batur Lake to a piece of forest where the cemetery lay. Once there we found quite a bizarre situation. It looked like a garbage dump with garbage and spread some bones. A pile of skulls on a wall and a kind of bamboo-like cages in which some older and decayed bodies layers plus a fresh corpse of 2 weeks wrapped in a white sheet. There was no smell of dissolution and that was in accordance with the local guide due to the huge old and unique tree that stood there with its immense underground roots. After about 15 minutes we are back out again to dangers direction village through the same difficult path. Watched the begging people in the village. It was that 54 euro worth? For me though because it was the only town on Bali that his killing that way instead of cremating saved. Very special and unique. Through the small harbour with the express boat is a lot cheaper but that we knew at that time not. Did not want to miss it anyway.

  • This is a hidden gem in the northen side of Bali. Located in the lake bank and the only access is via a boat ride. The view is amazing. The cemetery is unique. The only downside is, what you get is not worth the money you spend for it. The villages try to scam you.
  • I was here 6 years ago and the situation much better than now. Now it's literary a piece of land full of trash. Too bad, local people need to do something with it. Honestly, unless the local keep it clean, it's not worthy to go.
  • A weird experience. A weird feeling. But your Bali trip will not complete without visiting this place. Unfortunately I myself paid so expensive ( IDR 200,000 😁 😢) for a boat with many people. And it was in 2014.
  • Spooky and Intresting place
  • Horrible!!! DO NOT GO!! Not worth the time, money or the risk! It's trash... Its literally full of junk on the floor everywhere you walk... The route there is horrible and EXTREMELY STEEP... my wife fell off the scooter and hurt her back and elbows simply because the road was too steep and the scooter's brakes didn't hold! And all you see over there is a bunch of skulls on some stones... THAT'S IT!
