Exploring the island of Bali is not enough for just two or three days. Because there are so many places that you have never visited. Especially in the Buleleng Regency area,
You can see for yourself the journey of travel blogger Kadek Arini, who explores hidden paradises in the northern part of Bali.
If you have a vacation to Bali during a pandemic, don’t forget to apply the health protocol (Prokes). Here are hidden gems in North Bali Kadek version Arini, guaranteed worth a stroll.
Bukit Batu Kursi in Pemuteran Village
First stop by at Pemuteran Village in Buleleng Regency, about 125 kilometers from Denpasar City. There is a hill called Batu Kursi over there. This location also has a temple called Pura Batu Kursi. Apart from being used as a place of worship for Balinese Hindus, the path to Batu Kursi Temple is also open to tourists because of the ocean view that lies at its peak.
You need to climb hundreds of steps first from the vehicle parking lot to get to the top of the Batu Kursi hill. A few meters before arriving at the top, you will find an intersection, which is a straight path to the temple and a turn right towards the top of the hill.
Even though trekking is quite long, the view around it is very beautiful. The North Bali Sea looks beautiful in the distance. Make sure you come as early as possible so you can enjoy the warmth of the sun. Don’t forget to bring mineral water because the trip is very draining.
The distance is about 40 minutes from the Bedugul area. Different from Lake Beratan which has been famous in Tabanan for a long time, Lake Tamblingan is still loyal to maintain the authenticity and beauty of the lake.
You won’t find a speed boat here. There are only jukung or rowing boats if you want to go around the lake. This place also has a temple for praying.
The advice is, you come to Lake Tamblingan in the morning when there is still a thin fog covering the surface of the lake. If you want to find a location waiting for dusk, coming in the afternoon is also highly recommended.
After the hill and lake tour, it’s time to stop by the waterfall. You can find Banyumala Waterfall in Buleleng Regency, which is about 10 kilometers from Tamblingan Lake.
As a hidden gem, it takes a struggle to get to the waterfall which has a shallow pool. You will pass through the forest. But you are guaranteed to be satisfied once you arrive at their destination.
Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfall
Another hidden waterfall that Kadek’s favorite in North Bali is Banyu Wana Amertha. Its existence also exists in the forest which is still beautiful. Monkeys are likely to greet you when walking on the trekking path to this waterfall.
The pool under Banyu Wana Amertha is also fairly shallow. So it is suitable for those of you who are not very good at swimming but want to get into the water. Here is the entry ticket. That is IDR 20 thousand per person.
