The villages of Kintamani
and Penelokan provide a great view of the still active Mount Batur and
its fantastic lake. Seven miles in diameter and sixty feet deep, Batur
caldera is simply astounding. From Penelokan, take the road Kedisan on
the shores of the lake where boats can be rented to cross over to
Trunyan. The spectacular mountainous region around Kintamani with its
deep Crater Lake and bubbling hot springs, make this region a must to
visit. Batur Lake is the largest lake in Bali and the region offers some
of the most spectacular views to be found anywhere on the island. Batur
Lake also provides water for an underground network of streams and
springs across the southern slopes of the mountain. Kintamani is really
great for day trips, trekking or simply for getting away from it all for
a few days.
The places will be visited during this tour: Barong and Keris Dance It is an excellent tour program, starting by visiting Batubulan to see the Barong and Keris Dance. The dance story is about the endless metaphysical battle between good and evil. The Barong is representative of the good force of nature. The dance is, to us, an entertaining show; full of humor and action. To the Balinese, also, it is an entertaining show.
Barong and Keris Dance which is durated for one hours is regularly showing their performance every day from 09.30 to 10.30 AM. This performance is especially dedicated to both local and international tourists. Barong itself is an ancient creature which symbolizes “the goodness”, while Rangda (giant) is a great ancient creature which symbolizes “the evil”. The battle between these two great creatures is packed in a nice dance and mystical music which are composed by ± 75 artist from Kesiman, Denpasar. Goa Gajah ( Elephant Cave Temple ) Goa Gajah, literally means ' Elephant Cave ”. Although named by 'elephant' it doesn't mean there is any real elephant live or ever live here. The name Goa Gajah derived from 'Lawa Gajah', which is mentioned in the manuscripts that found in this site. This temple complex was built for the first time around 11 century based on epigraph found in this site.
A seven-meters deep cave with a shape of T-letter is the major attraction of this Bedulu village's local temple. The cave it self is carved in a solid stone hill of the river valley. The main figure of the carving at the cave entrance is 'boma', a barong face, accompanied with big clapping fingers on its side. Leaf, flower, and some horror figures can be noticed if we give more attention look to the rest of the carving. Some holes that are considered to be used as meditation or sleeping quarters can be found in the wall of the cave. Nowadays, those holes are used to place offerings whenever there is ceremonies taking place. On the left end side of the cave is Ganesha statue, believe it as 'the God of knowledge'. Meanwhile on the right end side can be found three 'linggas', that each of them dedicated to the three common God manifestations in Bali , Brahma, Wisnu, and Siwa. There are other three stone carvings in the centre wall, one of them figuring head and face.
Three other statues of Ganesha, demons and Men Brayut, a legendary lady with her beloved children, are placed on a high building located on the left side of cave entrance. It is considered that these statues are 1000 years old. In the middle of the complex, in front of the cave, there is bathing place that is not any longer used by the local people. The angle figures within the bathing complex are about similar to common figures found in India . On the south part of the complex, there are along flight of step leads down the lower part of the valley. After crossing a bridge above a small creek and follow another flight of steps up to eastern side of the valley, a headless sitting Buddha statue can be seen. This is the evident of a close relationship between the two religions. Kintamani Kintamani is a name of countryside located in the hill and the beautiful panorama surround it.
