If you want to experience the wild rainforests of Bali’s central highlands will make the trek to Buyan Lake and Lake Tamblingan. The two crater lakes are located within the caldera of extinct Bedugul volcano. They were a single lake until 1800, a landslide separated the lake into two lakes, and a narrow land bridge of less than a mile width divides them. Located at altitudes of nearly 4000 feet, this is the heart of Bali’s farming area, with coffee plantations, vegetable fields and traditional rice paddies covering the nearby slopes. Lake Tamblingan is important in the religious life of the local villagers who earn their livelihoods by fishing, farming and ferrying tourists.


Buyan Lake and Tamblingan Lake are also known as Twin Lakes. This sight is a great overview of the volcanic heart of Bali. Volcanoes have created and shaped this island, creating volcanic cones and lakes, and producing rich soils enabling a lush forest to grow. Lake Buyan (on the left here) is Bali’s second biggest lake, after Lake Batur.


Trekking is one of the more popular activities in the area. One of the most common hikes is to the top of Asah Gobleg, a hill overlooking the lakes. The view is spectacular. The more adventure-oriented traveler may choose to arrive with an organized trekking group to climb much more difficult Mount Batukaru. Employing local guides, these treks allow visitors to enjoy the flora and fauna of the rainforest and jungle on the steep mountainsides. Many temples exist in the area to which locals make regular pilgrimages. It is always advised to use local guidance to avoid offending local customs and religious observances. One of the easiest treks is to the Munduk Waterfall, only a mile from the Munduk Market. Munduk is the center of the elite and comparatively wealthy plantation system in the area. Here visitors can enjoy small shops selling local handicrafts, specialty foods and a wide variety of fruits, vegetables and flowers.


Buyan Lake and Tamblingan Lake located at Sukasada regency, 21 km from souther part of Singaraja and in the edge of Denpasar Singaraja Street. Buyan Lake is also located 1000 meters above sea level which make the air in this area quite cool at the night, while Tamblingan Lake could be reach through T-junction toward Munduk Village, Gobleg Village, and direct to Lovina area.
