Picturesque Central Bali
Drive further north to Bedugul Regency (district), renowned for its stunning beauty and three caldera lakes (Beratan, Buyan and Tamblingan). First stop is the market at Candi Kuning.
Bali is famous for fresh fruits and exotic spices and there are plenty of seasonal varieties to discover at the market, together with stalls selling beautiful scented flowers used for ceremonies and offerings. The iconic Ulun Danu Temple is the next destination. This important Hindu Shivaite water temple is located on a small jut of land within the calm waters of Lake Beratan. If the water level is high (normally only during the
rainy season) it gives the illusion that this 17th century temple is ‘floating’ on the lake.
After a break for lunch, return south stopping to view the rice terraces at Jatiluwih en route. Recognised by UNESCO, these seemingly endless rice paddies offer superb vistas in all directions and are a marvel to behold.
There will be an option to walk along some of the terraces (*) before returning to your vehicle and heading back to your hotel.
