A visit to Bali is definitely incomplete without a visit to Kintamani village, located on the banks of the Batur Lake offering panoramic views of Mount Batur, an active volcano which has been causing havoc since 1968. The region around the volcano is marked by arid black soil which is actually lava which has gradually dried and integrated into the soil. We lunched at a charming restaurant with massive glass windows offering scenic views of the volcano while we munched on deep fried banana coated with sticky black sauce. Enthusiastic tourists can trek closer to the volcano for better views, however we satisfied ourselves with a view photographs from the nearby view point.
The island of Bali is known by many names be it ‘Paradise Island’ or the ‘Island of God’ and it certainly befits all of them. A visit to Bali is one which no travel enthusiast can forget, every scene, every location, is imprinted in one’s mind like a picture postcard; vivid and full of beauty. In my opinion Bali is probably one of the best travel destinations in the world and a visit to this island should definitely top every traveller’s ‘to do’ list.
