hot spot

LAKE BRATAN, BALI Serene and captivating, Lake Bratan is one of the most stunning locations in the world. Found more than a kilometre above sea level in the crater of the Bratan volcano on the Indonesian island of Bali, a tropical yet cool microclimate produces breathtaking weather displays, from spectacular sunsets to moody rainstorms. Standing powerfully on its western shore, the Pura Ulun Danu Brata water temple complex dominates an otherwise placid vista where forest-covered volcano crater meets an ever-changing watercolourist’s sky. Built in 1663, the temple is used to make offerings to the Balinese water, lake and river goddess, Dewi Danu. Mount Catur, on the east side of the water, is the place to go for rewarding panoramas. >>Turn to page 69to read about a cruise to Bali…
