Danau Batur ( Lake Batur )
not only the largest but also the most popular of all the lakes on Bali Island
Lake Batur is not only the largest but also the most popular of all the lakes on Bali Island. It is situated at the foot of Mount Batur, which bears the same name. When viewed from above, the lake has a crescent form. From a distance, the entire Batur area appears to be a big crater with a mountain and a lake inside.
A sequence of eruptions began around 23,000 BC, forming this massive caldera. Before the eruption, the original Mount Batur was said to be roughly 4.000 meters above sea level. Mount Batur is now only 1717 meters above sea level, having shrunk dramatically in height.
Old Batur's collapsed magma chamber was then filled with rainwater, resulting in Lake Batur. Unlike most of south Bali, this location has a cool alpine climate. Here at Kintamani, there isn't a hint of modernity. Everything here is pretty much nature, with the exception of a few eateries facing the lake.
Trekking and dawn hunting on Mount Batur are two of the most popular activities for visitors to try while in the area. Around the Batur beach, there are various historic communities that have thrived for generations. Trunyan Village, in particular, is recognized for its peculiar method of burying the dead.
