There are four lakes in Bali, all up on the highland.
Lake Batur is the old crater of Gunung Batur, a still
active volcanoe next to it. It is located on the northern
part of Bali. There is a hot spring right by the lake.
You can enjoy the spectacular scenery of Lake Batur from
Kintamani. Across the lake, only reachable by boat, lies
the village of Trunyan, where the Bali Aga people live.
Lake Bratan is located next to Mount Bratan and Mount
Catur. It is the second largest lake in Bali. The important
temple of Pura Ulun Danu solemnly guards the lake. The resort
area of Bedugul offers excellent views of the lake, as well
as a number of water activities
such as parasailing, swimming, etc.
Lake Buyan and Lake Tamblingan
Immediately to the northwest of Lake Bratan, Lake Buyan
and Lake Tamblingan used to be one body of water, until
a landslide separated them at the turn of the 19th century.
