Good view from the top. You can see three volcano craters with the latest one since 2002. You can also see the lava flow from the last eruption. Cool air as you are high up. You can also see villages around the lake.

I agree if Batur Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in Indonesia. I love it. So peaceful. So enjoyed the trip this morning. I've spent 3 hours here just for watching the view, eating, watching again. Lovely!

This lake is the result of a volcano (more than 4.000 meters high) collapsed there after the strongest eruption ever had on Earth about 29.300 years ago...

We went there by bike and we didn’t pay anything. If you take boat trip at the harbour or if you buy a tour from Ubud or somewhereelse, yes of course you pay. I just wanted to clarify for next visitors, thank you.
