  Mt Batur and surrounding lake
by chatterley

This magnificent active volcano and its surrounding lake (Lake Batur) is about 5000 feet above sea level.

From those tour information brochures we collected, most tour agencies would offer a full day (about 8 hours) "Volcano Kintamani Tour", which includes destinations such as Batubulan (see the Barong Dance and stone carving industries), Celuk (silver works), Batuan, Mas (wood carving), Ubud (village of painters) and Mount Batur. However, these tour operators might charge quite a lot of $$$. Our solution was to hire a driver to take us to all these places, for only USD23 (per vehicle, per day). You might want to check out my "Transport" tip for my recommended driver - Mr Wayan.
