Although not as spectacularly rugged as the more active volcanic area of Gunung Batur, Bedugul enjoys abundant natural beauty and is home to one of Bali’s prettiest and most famous temples, Pura Unun Danau Bratan. The area is a great spot for trekking too.

On the main road between Seminyak in the south and Singaraja and Lovina in the north, Bedugul is the name commonly used to describe the villages within the caldera of the extinct Bedugul volcano, including Bedugul itself, Candikuning and Pancasari. The focal points are three volcanic lakes: Danau Bratan, and the twin lakes Danau Buyan and Danau Tamblingan. Danau Bratan is popular with local tourists for water sports and a variety of craft skim the lake including paddle ducks, banana boats and peace-shattering speedboats. On its shores, caves dug by the Japanese during World War II make an interesting quick visit. Danau Buyan, largely surrounded by forest, has a popular camping area. Danau Tamblingan is more often reached via nearby Munduk. All three lakes offer good trekking options.
