THE KINTAMANI REGION
This day-long excursion takes you to a number of ancient temples located across Mount Batur’s smouldering but safe upper slopes. Chief among them is Goa Gajah – known popularly as the Elephant Cave temple – which gives way to the bubbling waters of Tirta Empul, the Holy Spring temple.
You also have the chance to explore an agri-tourism park, where you can sample products made from locally grown chocolate, coffee and vanilla. The tour culminates in a winding downhill drive looking out over the crater at Mount Batur, then the terraced rice fields of Ceking in Tegalalang.
