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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Bali itinerary 3 days.

Danau Batur Reviews & Ratings
Located just besides mount Batur, this lake is a wonderful site for ones eyes. We just saw the lake from the top and the scenery was beautiful with clear blue water surrounded by green hills and clouds on the top. What a view!!
This is a beautiful lake in Bali. We can visit mount Batur (view) and this lake together.The air is fresh and cool. The back ground view of hills is mesmerising. Very good place to spend some time with nature. The place is accessible by vehicle. There are few restaurants nearby. Worth spending an hour or so during visit to Bali.
there are a lot spot around batur lake. better come here in summer because it used to rain here when rainy season. there is also a place for camping near the lake.
Never failed to amuse me.. the only complain was every single turn I take when I rode my bike is when the locals keeps calling me like they're asking for money, but.. it's their ways to call the "visitor" to join on a tour to Trunyan village.. what is trunyan? Ask google.. 😁 just go till the end of the road, and the trunyan tour only cost you about 400k for two person all in (include village tax and charity to their village)
Sad and abandoned environment, little offer of leisure and restoration. The shore of the lake full of garbage and plastics. The landscape does not compensate the long road.
