Today you will marvel at the exciting stops en route to the active volcano Mount Batur. Gunung Kawi is the tremendous 11th century temple featuring shrines carved into the cliff face. Tirta Empul is most famous for its sacred spring water and is where the locals come once a year for ritual cleansing.
Further north, Kintamani has the most spectacular views of Mount Batur and of the large, crescent-shaped Batur Lake. After lunch, you’ll head to Penglipuran, a traditional village renowned for its architecture and spectacular Kehen Temple, often called ‘Mini Besakih’.
