Kintamani is a land surrounded by beautiful captivating lively green nature lying in the lap of Indonesia. It is situated at the western edge of Bali. It has gained its fame throughout the world for its most adventurous dramatic view of volcano Mount Batur and charming serene beauty of the Batur Lake.
There are six ancient villages around the cauldron of Batur Lake. These villages are famous as Bali aga village, for their culture, houses and lifestyle of the villagers. Most of the villagers are employees of industrial tourism companies. If one shows respect to the villagers they become very friendly.
Kintamani encompasses a massive land of Mount Batur Caldera, Penelokan, Toya Bungkah, Batur, Kedisan, Abung, Songan and Kintamani villages that sits like a ring around the huge Batur Caldera. As it is, more or less, 1500 m above the sea level, the temperature remains around 15° and even losses down more at night. This cloudy n drizzly pleasurable weather helps to rejuvenate one and gives a romantic impact. Alike the lake and volcano, another tourist attraction of Kintamani is Pura Ulun Danu Batur, a nine directional temple.

There are a lot of hotels in Kintamani that will offer you cosy and comfortable stays such as Kedisan Resort and Resto Apung, Lake View Ecolodge, Hotel Segara, Toya Devasya Natural Hot Spring and Resort, and many others. If you are a complete foodie, you can dine at any of the restaurants in Bali out there like Pulu Mujung Warung, The Amora Bali, Etc.
If you love partying at night, there is great nightlife in Bali. Unfortunately, there is no known nightclub in Kintamani Village. The nightclubs and bars that are really famous in Bali are Kunti Shraya, Kecak Fire and Trance Dance, Rock Bar at Ayana Resort and Spa, etc.
For shopaholics, avoid the yelling vendors trying to sell you all rubbish. Buy fresh fruits instead. A special local orange called Jeruk Kintamani is a must have there. The fruit with citrus flavours is delicious.
