Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature.

See the iconic Lake Bratan, Handara Gate, waterfall and end your journey on a swing in a hidden hill.

Snap photos and experience the beauty in the north.

Your first stop early in the morning will be the iconic Lake Beratan where you will see the majestic temple sitting on a small island on the lake, just as you always see in the postcards of Bali. This lakeside temple was constructed in honor of Dewi Danu, goddess of the lake that was formed by a volcanic eruption 30,000 years ago. Your driver will also explain to you more of the history of this ancient temple as well as the Balinese people and their culture.

You will then visit the iconic Handara Gate, well known as the pathway to serenity. Take a wonderful picture in front of Handara Gate with the breathtaking view of green scenery and the gigantic-exotic traditional Balinese gate as your backdrop. Pamper your eyes with the amazing green surrounding, beautiful scenery and the amazing background of smoky green hills between the gates that creates a perfect picture for your trip. Don't forget to take some polaroid photos as well while you are here.

Prepare your walking shoes because you will next go to visit the majestic and beautiful Banyumala Twin Waterfall. It’s absolutely perfect for a quiet and peaceful afternoon in the arms of Mother Nature. The natural pool is inviting with its translucent turquoise waters. Swim in tranquility, listen to the thunderous roar of cascading waters and take in the sights of the vibrant greenery. Although no picture will ever do this natural wonder justice, that shouldn’t stop you from that perfect shot.

Your journey will not be completed without a visit to the iconic Wanagiri Hidden Hills which is punctuated by a series of whimsical vantage points over Lake Tambingan and Lake Buyan. Here you will fly over the hill and lakes and experience incredible views on a jungle swing. Do not miss the bird cage and also a viewing post shaped like a boat here!

Beratan Lake

Ulun Danu Temple is one of the attractions when visiting Bedugul Mountain Resort or Singaraja. The location is on the west bank of the Lake Beratan. The name Ulun Danu literally means “the beginning of the lake” but this does not need to claim that the side is the beginning of a lake. It tends to indicate that everything that exist around the lake will be oriented to the temple site and cleanliness around the area must be continuously kept.

Banyumala Waterfall

Banyumala Waterfall is one of the lesser known waterfalls in Bali. It takes around 15 minutes to walk there from the car park, the effort versus reward is worth it. The path is mainly stairs cut from the earth and there is often a bamboo pole beside you to help you down. It's not difficult in the dry season but could become quite slippery in rain, particularly if you are only wearing flip flops. It's worth it though! Unlike many trails this is a completely natural trail and rarely hiked trail. Just past the waterfall is a water curtain of various trickles of water down a wall of lush rocks and it's a beautiful spot for a swim on a steamy day. It is possible to visit the falls year round, so whenever you’re in Bali you can visit if you wish.

Buyan Lake

Lake Buyan and Lake Tamblingan, separated by a rainforest-covered hill, approximately one kilometer, there is a pool that is connected directly to the lake Buyan through a narrow canal. The community pool is called Telaga Aya. The two lakes are known as the Twin Lakes. This sight is a great overview of the volcanic heart of Bali. Volcanoes have created and shaped this island, creating volcanic cones and lakes, and producing rich soils enabling a lush forest to grow. This lake is one of three twin lakes that formed in a large caldera. It was flanked by two other lakes, namely Lake Tamblingan in the west and Lake Bratan in the east. Lake Buyan  is Bali’s second biggest lake, after Lake Batur and Tamblingan Lake is the smallest lake on the island.
