Was a long but a beautiful ride from Jimbaran. We did it in a two wheeler and it was an experience in itself. Took us 2 and bit hours to get there.

The lake in itself is a great sight from the top but it was done in 5 mins. Since we did not do the hike of the Mt Batur not sure if it was worth the effort for just 5 mins. We went for the hot springs but it was really dirty and we did not even go in. It’s only worth it if you are hiking.

Amazing lake view surrounding by Mount Agung & Mount Batur. Your should try the local dishes (fish from the lake) taste good. The road a bit narrow and for those renting bike a bit dangerous, its recommended to take supir (taxi).

it's weird to see children and adults playing in water surrounded by TONS of garbage. absolutely no one ever picks up the trash choosing to let it float and pollute the lake. It would be great if all the people who live on the lake could arrange a trash pickup and beautification day, show some pride in their surroundings and lands, but no, when you ask what they think of the all the trash that flows into the lake they look at you like you are crazy, why would you ever suggest such a strange thing as keeping things nice. it's heartbreaking and the toxins in Lake Batur are rising all the time, fish are dying off more and more...they need a leader so badly, just like the Thai people in Phuket need a leader who will organize garbage collecting from the beaches there.

We stayed in a villa overlooking the lake and my absolute favourite activity of the trip was to float in the pool and look out over the lake. It's the largest crater lake in Bali and it's just so beautiful. On one of the nights at the restaurant we did have the fish from the Lake for dinner, a type of Tilapia.

Lake Batur is a volcanic crater lake in Kintamani.many years ago,i visited penelokan, had dinner there,and watching lake Batur from there,but it is far away from the lake,cant see very clear.last year i visited bali in june.i stayed around kintamani for two nights,the guesthouse i stayed can see the lake more closer,but still in the distance.during the stay,i had a tour to truyan,a vilage located on the eastern shore of Lake.i took a boat to the village,the lake is calm and peaceful.it was a nice experience.after the tour i had a chance to walked around the lake,but not the whole lake,it is hard to do that,cuz the lake is very big.there are some restaurants beside the lake,but i dont have time to sit down and watching the lake.a bit rush,so i hope one day i can stay beside this beautiful lake,exploring the lake and also kintamani area.

The lake is crescent shaped and located in the secondary caldera at the base of Mount Batur. Our driver told us that the lake is held sacred by all Balinese. We were happy with the wonderful views from the lookout and the Lakeview restaurant.. So different to 1989 when a beamo driver took us along some barely discernable track to some hot springs. Over commercialized nowadays.
