Attraction: Ulun Danu Temple

Bali is known for its rich heritage, with more than 20,000 ancient temples spread out across the island. A Balinese temple unlike any other is the Beratan Lake Temple, or referred to by locals as Pura Ulun Danu Bratan.

This Hindu temple lies in the middle of a lake 1,300 metres above sea level. Its unique location, set against a mountainous backdrop, attracts nature lovers, photo enthusiasts and culture buffs even during low-peak seasons. A fog that rolls in regularly at noon adds to the mystic charm of Beratan Lake Temple.
