Escape to central Bali where dramatic volcanoes loom over lush fields, stunning crater lakes and mystical temples. In the early morning set off from the hotel in a convertible Volkswagen and drive to Goa Gajah to see a 25 metre long series of fourteenth century rock cut carvings. At the bottom of a lush green valley you’ll see the 11th century temple and funeral complex of Gunung Kawi, one of Balis oldest monuments. Walk down the stairs to see the 10 rock cut shrines carved out of the surrounding rocks.
Continue to Kintamani set around the rim of the Gunung Batur crater. Look out over Bali’s most active volcano, Mount Batur, which soars over 1800 metres into the sky. In the centre is a beautiful turquoise green lake, the largest lake of the island. After lunch in a local restaurant, drive to the holy spring temple of Sebatu and from there on small village roads, have a stop with view over stunning rice terraces.
