Title : “Bali Botanical Garden”
Kebun Raya Bali/Bali Botanic Garden, opened 1959, covers an area of 157.5 hectares and is the largest botanic garden in Indonesia. There are more than 2,400 species of plants and over 79 species of birds. Its location is a welcome respite from the usual Bali weather, as it is located 1,250-1,450 metres above sea level and although still humid, the temperature is around 18ºC - 20ºC.The entrance is lined with large statues from Ramayana and the Hanuman statue is huge. The giant ficus, believed to be hundreds of years old is beautiful, with its split twisted trunk and large canopy.There is a lot of things to keep you amused for hours here and it is only a hop, skip and a jump from Pura Ulum Danau Bratan and worth the detour.

Title : “Tamblingan Lake”
Lake Tamblingan is one of the Twin Lakes along with Lake Buyan, they are both located in the caldera of Bedugul Volcano, now extinct. The two lakes formed a single lake until about 1800, when a landslide divided them into two with a 2 kilometre ridge. Lake Tamblingan is I,000 metres above sea level and the smaller of the Twin Lakes. The name is derived from two words, ‘tamba’ meaning medicine and ‘elingang’ which means spiritual.
If coming from Lake Beratan, there are good views along Jl. Pancasari-Baturiti of Lake Buyan, this road also has stops where there are playful monkeys alongside of the road. This road leads onto Jl. Raya Wanagiri which follows along the top of Lake Buyan and then the length of Lake Tamblingan, there are places to stop along the way with wonderful views of both lakes Chris Cunnington Singapore
Title : “you should visit this place”
Peaceful spot to spend an hour. It is a bit of a walk down to the waterfall (and back up after). Good photo opportunity, we enjoyed our visit. Stephen Schur Adelaide South Australia
