Buahan Village

The breeze has awakened the earth and sun has colored our world. Buahan Village, Bali.

Buahan Village, Lake Batur, Kintamani, Bali
A world away from bustling Kuta or Denpasar, the small rural village of Buahan and Kedisan are set on the shore of Danau Batur, the biggest lake in Bali, inside a massive caldera in the north east of the island, which also contains the outstanding active volcano of Mt Batur.
Buahan is less visited by regular travelers as the tourist buses stay away from descending the narrow, winding road down to the village because returning would only be possible at a snail’s pace due to the extreme steepness. From Buahan, you can actually observe the tourist-packed spots such as the lookout points over Mt Batur and the lake at Kintamani.
