Overview

Created by an eruption of Mount Batur approximately 30,000 years ago, Lake Bratan lies in the caldera of an active volcano. It takes about an hour's drive northeast of Denpasar to reach here. This lake measures about 5 miles in diameter and is 200 feet deep. The temple of Pura Danu Batur on the rim is dedicated to the Goddess of the Lake. The lake often becomes shrouded in mist but one can catch breathtakingly stunning views from the many vantage points along the rim. Hot springs at the lake's edge reach temperatures of 134 degrees fahrenheit while the rest of the lake is somewhat cooler.
