Turquoise twin lakes separated by tropical rainforest and peppered with serene Hindu temples dating back centuries? Of all the beautiful places to visit in Bali, this protected area in the northern mountains is a must-see. Rather than take on the rugged terrain alone, allow us to whisk you there by comfy air-conditioned transport, in time for a most magical sunrise.
After departing from your accommodation promptly by 4am, we’ll head north and arrive at a spectacular sunrise point just before 6am. After tucking into a much-needed breakfast, we’ll begin the day’s trek towards the Twin Lakes Bali. Both Buyan Lake and Tamblingan Lake are a sight to see, shrouded in rainforest and home to unique Balinese wildlife.
A real highlight of the day will be crossing serene Lake Tamblingan by traditional canoe. Let your experienced guide do the arm work while you sit back and snap photos of your majestic surroundings.
Next, we’ll swing by Handara Gate, one of Bali’s most popular photo spots. Symbolising a bridge between the real and spiritual realms, this photogenic stone arch is built in typical Balinese style.
We’ll 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 travellers and locals alike. Your guide will fill you in on the history before transferring you back to your accommodation. What a day!
