The largest lake overshadowed by the active volcano Mount Batur, at the northeast of Bali. Batur Lake is the widest lake in this island. The lake is classified as a "neutral-dilute" lake because there is no known underlying hydrothermal activity, and the abundant rainfall more than quenches any such activity.
There is a hot spring right by the lake. We can enjoy the spectacular "shimmers sheet of blue glass" scenery of Batur Lake from Kintamani. Across the lake, only reachable by boat, lies Trunyan village, where the Bali Aga people live.
The surrounding of the lake is a favorite place for picks self up.
At Batur Lake we can see the scenic view and feel cool atmosphere, all surrounded by the high walls of the crater rim and colorful sulfuric rocks. The place is a great day trips, trekking or just to get away from the daily activity.
