Spending time on the beach or waterfall in Bali can be the thing most tourists do. But what if your vacation is spent on the lake? Well, in Bangli Regency there is one lake that you can visit as an alternative tourist attraction besides the beach and waterfall, named Lake Batur. This lake is the largest lake in Bali. If you're curious, you can read the following reviews.
Lake Batur, located in Songan B Village, is a tourist destination that must be visited if you are in Kintamani District, Bangli Regency. To get to this lake, you have to pass a rather extreme path in the form of winding and steep roads. Because Lake Batur is located on the slopes of Mount Batur, precisely at 1,050 masl. Its location in the highlands makes Lake Batur unique and never overlooked by tourists.
When you arrive at Lake Batur, you will be treated to a vast view of the lake. Its size reaches 16 km with a depth of about 65 meters. That said, this lake was created because of the impact of Mount Batur's eruption that occurred thousands of years ago. A distinctive feature of Lake Batur is the color of lake water that can change. Because there is sulfur content in it. Don't worry, the smell of sulfur will not disturb you.
The calm and peaceful atmosphere around Lake Batur is perfect for those of you who want to escape the bustling urban atmosphere. Also, the stretch of bluish-green waters that soothes the eyes, is able to eliminate all your fatigue. If you visit there during the day, you might see the fog. This adds to the impression of a typical highland area.
The beauty of Lake Batur was also recognized by UNESCO as a Global Geopark Network area. You can enjoy its beauty in two different spots. The first is at the port which is a crossing point towards Trunyan Village. Second, from the floating restaurant while relaxing or eating snacks and chatting with friends.
Well, the natural beauty that the lake has also provided its own satisfaction for visitors who love photography. You can make Lake Batur as a photo object, but also Mount Batur which is the background of the lake. The combination of a stretched lake, and a mountain that stands firm produces a neat blend when captured by the camera lens.
To go to Lake Batur, you need to rent a transportation vehicle because there are no public vehicles that can take you to the lake. If you want to visit, you should come in the morning or afternoon. Rain often falls in the afternoon in the lake area. In addition, there are hot spring baths around the lake. If you have more budget for this holiday, you can try soaking in hot water while enjoying the view of Lake and Mount Batur.
