Kintamani Volcano

Kintamani Volcano

Mount Batur (Gunung Batur) is an active volcano located at the center of two concentric calderas north west of Mount Agung. Created by an eruption of Mount Batur approximately 30,000 years ago. 

It sets in the hearth of a huge crater 14 km in diameter and 65 meters deep.The temple of Pura Danu Batur on the rim is dedicated to the Goddess of the Lake. 

The lake often becomes shrouded in mist but one can catch breathtakingly stunning views from the many vantage points along the rim. Hot springs at the lake's edge reach temperatures of 57 degrees Celsius while the rest of the lake is somewhat cooler.
