Day trip in Bali: trekking on the Kintamani

A whole other world – tranquil, expansive and engulfed by fresh mountain air – sits just over 45 minutes’ drive from Ubud. The Kintamani region, home to the active Mount Batur volcano and the eerily calm Lake Batur, is the perfect day trip to escape the hustle and bustle of Bali’s main drags.

Explore Pura Ulun Danu Batur, one of Bali’s nine directional temples, perched amongst nature to ward of evil spirits. Or simply mosey around the slow-paced villages and watch real Bali life roll by.
