Kintamani is a village in northern Bali. The village, together with several others, sit on the rim of the huge Mount Batur caldera about 1,500m above sea level and provides dramatic views of Mount Batur volcano and Lake Batur.
Cooler mountainous region of Bali where growing fruit and vegetables is the main horticultural activity . The main attraction for travellers is located around Lake Batur where Peneloken provides the first spectacular view of this crater lake, set in a vast volcano caldera. A climb to the summit of Mount Batur, still an active volcano, to watch the sunrise is an unforgetable experience for more energetic travellers. Further along the rim of the caldera is Pura Ulun Danau Batur, the second most important temple in Bali.
Kintamani is the pushy souvenir hawker capital of Bali. They will surely target you the moment you get out of your transport and try to admire the view. If you are confident handling the haggling with these vendors, Kintamani turn out to be an interesting shopping experience.
