Full description
With its turquoise twin lakes separated by tropical rainforest and peppered with serene Hindu temples dating back centuries, this protected area in the northern mountains is a Bali must-see.  Rather than taking on the rugged terrain alone, allow your guide to whisk you there by comfy air-conditioned transport, in time for a magical sunrise. After departing from your accommodation promptly by 4 AM, head north and arrive at a spectacular sunrise viewing point just before 6 AM. After tucking into a well-deserved breakfast, begin the day’s trek towards the Twin Lakes. Both Buyan Lake and Tamblingan Lake are a sight to see, shrouded in rainforest and home to unique Balinese wildlife. Reach the real highlight of the day and cross the serene Lake Tamblingan by traditional canoe. Let your experienced guide do the arm work while sitting back and snapping photos of the majestic surroundings. Next, swing by Handara Gate, one of Bali’s most popular photo spots. Symbolizing a bridge between the real and spiritual realms, this photogenic stone arch is built in the typical Balinese style. Finish the day at Ulun Danu Bratan, a Hindu-Buddhist temple nestled on the banks of Lake Beratan. With 300 years of history and a feature on the 50,000 rupiah bank note, this is one of Bali’s most iconic destinations for visitors and locals alike. Learn about its history before heading back to your hotel.
