Villages Around Danau Batur
Click to Enlarge !
The little villages around Danau Batur have a crisp lakeside setting and views up to the surrounding peaks. There’s a lot of fish farming here, and the air is pungent with the smell of onions from the myriad tiny vegetable farms. You’ll also see chillies, cabbage and garlic growing, a festival for those who like assertively flavoured food. The lake has ever-more fish farms.
A hairpin road winds its way down from Penelokan to the shore of Danau Batur. At the lakeside you can go left along the road that twists through lava fields to Toya Bungkah. Watch out for huge sand trucks battering the road into dust as they haul materials for construction across Bali.
