Kintamani is a town a lot of people in Bali don’t go to as it far in the north of Bali and quite far away from the airport in the south. This northern Bali town has quite a few specialties that ideally should make it a hot favorite. It is home to the second most important temple of Bali called the Pura Ulan Danu Batur. It is home to the Batur volcano and the caldera. It is very scenic and it’s cool mountain weather is quite a different experience from the rest of Bali.
It is located about 50 kilometers north of Ubud, the cultural capital of Bali and can either be done as part of a day trip from Ubud or even better if you stay in Kintamani a couple of nights to enjoy the nippy mountain weather, a early morning walk in the cool mist and may be even climb the Batur volcano if you feel like hiking.
The picturesque and really stunning Pura Ulan Danu Batur, the scenic location of the Batur lake and the views of the Batur caldera will keep you awestruck as long as you stay in Kintamani. Everywhere you goto in Kintamani, you will see the mountain and the lake. And may be the temple too as it overlooks the volcano and the lake. This is one place you should visit if you wish to experience a volcano, a temple and cool weather all thrown into one. I definitely loved this place and would definitely go here again.
