Escape from it all, high up in the centre of Bali, and come to this major eco-tourism site. Lake Bratan, which presides in a lush natural setting, is synonymous with peace and quiet. On its banks, no mass tourism, but thriving, verdant nature, refreshed by the water all around... Humans reap the rewards of this abundant nature, growing coffee, cocoa, vanilla and clove trees. The lake is best explored in the early morning, when the temple, Pura Ulun Danu Bratan, is reflected in its waters.
