Places of Interest in Batur Lake, Bali

Batur Lake is the old crater of Mount Batur, a still active volcano
next to it. It is located on the northern part of Bali. The largest lake
overshadowed by the active volcano is located in Bangli Regency, at the
northeast of Bali. Batur Lake is the widest lake in this island. It
lies down in the feet of Mount Batur and Mount Abang. The lake is
classified as a "neutral-dilute" lake because there is no known
underlying hydrothermal activity, and the abundant rainfall more than
quenches any such activity. There is a hot spring right by the lake. We
can enjoy the spectacular scenery of Batur Lake from Kintamani. Across
the lake, only reachable by boat, lies Trunyan village, where the Bali
Aga people live. The surrounding of the lake is a favorite place for
picks self up. At Batur Lake we can see the scenic view and feel cool
atmosphere. Bangli's mountainous region center is around the spectacular
volcanic crater (or caldera) of Batur. Mount Batur adjacent to the
volcano is the large crescent-shaped Batur Lake, all surrounded by the
high walls of the crater rim. The place is a great day trips, trekking
or just to get away from the daily activity.


Mount Batur itself is actually just a small volcano, but sets in
the heart of a huge crater 14km in diameter. Adjacent to the volcano is
the large crescent-shaped Batur Lake, all surrounded by the high walls
of the crater rim. As the road rises steadily from Bangli or
Tampaksiring, nothing in the surrounding gray landscape of bushes and
garden plots suggests the presence of a volcano. But over one more small
ridge a dizzying view awaits the ayes, encompassing the crater and
beyond. From Panelokan, the main road runs right round the rim towards
Kintamani, the panorama shifting as we circle around the crater. One
very interesting excursion in Batur is the climb down the inside of the
crater from Penelokan to Kedisan. We can then drive around the smaller
Mount Batur, through Songan. From Toya Bungkah, boats cross the lake to a
Bali Aga village called Trunyan. This place is notorious for its
mortuary traditions. Instead of cremating the dead, as Balinese do
throughout most of the island, the Trunyan communities leave the bodies
to decompose naturally in a special cemetery.
