Kintamani, Batur, and Penelokan villages sit on the rim of the huge Batur caldera about 1,500m above sea level and offer dramatic views of the active volcano Mount Batur and serene Lake Batur. Toyo Bungkah village is down at the lake edge. As well as the lake and the volcano, Kintamani is home to Pura Ulun Danu Batur, one of Bali’s key nine directional temples.
The main attraction for visitors is located around Lake Batur where Penelokan village provides spectacular views of this Crater Lake and Mount Batur, set in a vast volcanic caldera.
Photo opportunities abound, but try to be there as early in the morning as you can manage before the cloud inevitably starts to gather. Penelokan village already has adequate infrastructure facilities complete with lodging and restaurants.
