The Lake Batur is just by the side of the Mount Batur Volcano. It was really beautiful. We did not go near the lake, But we saw that there were small houses near the lake.

Lake Batur is a crater lake/caldera located in north-eastern Bali, is a very popular attraction and revered by the Balinese Hindu population. There are excellent lookouts near Kintamani that have excellent views of the lake. Visit and enjoy !

Our driver took us to a viewing platform near the restaurant and down a beaten path. Beautiful views at both, I really recommend coming to have a look even on a cloudy day.

We could see the lake from where our hotspring baths were located and the views didn't disappoint. Overall the lake was worth visiting for a other occasion but the hotspring is not recommended having very poor facilities. Perhaps another planned trip of this area for...More

Very beautiful combination of the lake and mount batur volcano. The point provides very nice perspective in the morning and maybe even better view before sunset time.

Good view from the top. You can see three volcano craters with the latest one since 2002. You can also see the lava flow from the last eruption. Cool air as you are high up. You can also see villages around the lake.

The lake s polluted. The shopkeepers are annoying. But the view of the Volcano is enchanting. Boat rides around the lakes are also available but we didn't do it because it didn't seem safe. Not very good safety measures in place. So be cautious if...More

Located just besides mount Batur, this lake is a wonderful site for ones eyes. We just saw the lake from the top and the scenery was beautiful with clear blue water surrounded by green hills and clouds on the top. What a view!!

We went there by bike and we didn’t pay anything. If you take boat trip at the harbour or if you buy a tour from Ubud or somewhereelse, yes of course you pay. I just wanted to clarify for next visitors, thank you.
