About Danau Batur, Bali

The largest lake on the island of Bali lies on the volcanic caldera between Mount Batur and Mount Abang, over 1000 meters above sea level. The clean water, blue skies, and sweeping green landscape have led to some comparing it to the European Alpine regions. While there are a lot of activities around the lake, an easy way to spend the time here is to just steak scroll around the shorelines. During rainy season the lake is covered in mist for long hours. Look at the wide expanse of the lake and remember that it’s actually a massive crater, formed by a tremendous eruption in the past. The accommodations around the lakesides usually serve as a base for visitors who want to spend a few days exploring the Kitanami highlands area.

Danau Batur, Bali Reviews

  • On the South East side of the volcano is the largest freshwater lake in Bali, Danau Batur. This lake is 4 miles long and 1 mile wide, which feeds the entire East side of Bali. The lake has hot springs that you can swim in, though the public area is polluted from too many people washing themselves and their clothing with soap and chemicals. Penelokan is a small village on the rim of the caldera with great views of the volcano and lake. Here you can eat at some restaurants that serve decent (just OK), but expensive, buffets with a view. There’s also a bunch of vendors selling fresh fruit and veggies as well as souvenirs. VERY PUSHY!!

  • Beautiful lake located beside Mount Batur. The sunrise here was incredible. Can be very touristy at times. Come very early in the morning to avoid other tourists.

  • Geopark Batur : blend of natural Batur Vulcan with Lake and cultural heritage of unique cemetary Balinese oldest tribe (Bali Aga) at Trunyan Village
