    Ulun Danu Beretan - Bali Day 2

    December 25, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Up early for the long drive north to Lake Beretan up in the mountains in the north of Bali. Was going to Sekumpul Waterfall also but traffic so bad decided to cut the trip short at Lake Beretan and visit a different Waterfall, Leke Leke, on the way back.

    The Ulun Danu temple on the lake is very picturesque and I got a few good shots. It was very busy though, primarily with Indonesian tourists from Java given this is a two week school holiday. Probably account's for the insane traffic too although the kamikaze scooter riders and general chaos of traffic is probably pretty normal for Bali. I'm surprised there aren't more accidents; but somehow it all seems to work despite the lack of rules or rather the lack of following any rules.

    On the way to Ulun Danu we stopped at a place where they grow and roast and serve Luwhak coffee. It's a very expensive special coffee whose beans have been through the digestive tract of a mongoose like creature, the Asian Palm Civet, before being cured and roasted and ground to a fine powder. Unappetizing as it may sound it really tastes amazing. Most of the local small hold plantations also grow and harvest lots of other things and will offer tastings of all their teas and coffees for free. The kicker is you pay 60,000 rupiah (about AU$6) for a cup of the Luwhak coffee. Well worth it though as you also get a tour of the plantation and get shown all the plants - and the animals - that go into making their products.

    Other stop of the day was at Leke Leke Waterfall. 50,000 rupiah entrance fee and a 20 min walk down the steep valley to the falls. A beautiful spot with a stunning waterfall. The trek back up was pretty tough though... I was a walking Waterfall of my own by the time I got back to the top :-)

    Ahhhhh . . . the colours . . . lovely. I can feel the warmth and humidity in the air - both of which I would be enjoying immensely.

    Der Norden

    October 10, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Früh morgens fuhren wir mit unserem Fahrer in den Norden Balis bis nach Lovina.
    Auf dem Weg dorthin sahen wir uns einige Hotspots an.
    Zuerst die Jatiluwih Reisterassen, die Unesco-Weltkulturerbe sind. Anders als die Tegallagan Reisterassen nahe Ubud sind diese noch viel ursprüglicher und weniger überlaufen.
    Anschließend hielten wir am Pura Ulun Danu Beratan Tempel, der wunderbar direkt an einem See liegt.
    Zum Schluss besuchten wir noch einige Wasserfälle kurz vor Lovina, die jedoch überteuert waren.
    Den Abend ließen wir in Lovina ausklingen.

    Pura Ulun Danu Bratan und Reisterrassen

    January 3, 2017 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Am Nachmittag führte uns unser Weg zu den Reisterrassen von Bali, wo gerade Bauern am umackern waren. Sehr beeindruckend. Anschließend fuhren wir zu dem wohl berühmtesten Tempel auf Bali, dem Lura Ulun Dani Bratan, der direkt an einem Stausee gelegen ist. Übrigens: je mehr Dächer ein Tempel besitzt, desto höher seine Wichtigkeit. Dieser hier ziert auch den 50000Rp Schein der indonesischen Währung.Read more

    Den6 Jazero Berantan, Stred Bali

    April 19, 2017 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Na tentok den sme si opat dohodli celodenneho vodica s klimatizovanym autom. Posledne 3 dni je extremne teplo aj na domacich. Odfukuju, tazkaju a posedkavaju na priedomkoch. Ale spat k nasmu vyletu. Po ranajkach nas vodic Samik uz cakal na hotelovom parkovisku. Ked sme mu ukazali nas pripraveny itinerar na den zacala bujara debata, ze mame prilis vela zastavok a ze musi zavolat sefovi. Ked sme sa nakoniec dohodli, vyrazili sme na sever od Denpasaru k horskemu jazeru Berantan(1228 m.n.m.). Cestou tam aj spat sme mali par zastavok v ich hindu klastoroch. Posledny Taman Ayu bol najkrajsi.

    Vecera: Warung ako vcera
    D: Tom nieco nieco polievka
    M: Tipat Cantok (restovany vodny spenat s kuracim), Sate Sapi ( grilovane hovedzie kusky na spajdlach s arasidovou omackou - vyborne ⭐️)

    PS: Ked sme po veceri odchadzali z restauracie, pani pri vedlajsom stole odpadla. Vsetci len postavali a kricali, aby niekto zavolal zachranku. Tak som priskocil ja, skontroloval usta ci ma volne dychanie - dychala. Vylozil som jej nohy na stolicku a zacal masirovat ruky a nohy ladom. Po minutke bola opet pri vedomi. Ludia sa ma pytali ci som doktor 😀. Dominika mala zazitok.

    Tempio Beratan

    August 15, 2015 in Indonesia

    E' arrivato il momento di visitare uno dei templi più fotografati di Bali, il Beratan, che si riflette pacifico sulle acque dell'omonimo lago. Peccato che oggi, a causa del tempo secco, l'acqua del lago sia molto bassa e quindi la foto classica non mi è riuscito di farla! 😂Read more
