“Beautiful mountain lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Fine view from the adjacent mountains. Didn't see any signs of boats to rent. Some of the lake had been given over to aquaculture.

Driving in the area was difficult and slow because of large trucks hauling sand and gravel for construction.

Not sure if driving down to the water and back by the same road is worth the trouble.

“Every mountain has it lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

View from cliff as good as for mountain from restaurant.
Bit cloudy but able to see the whole thing
Hot air balloon might be a good idea

“Beautiful From Distance But... ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

Go There Yesterday With A Friend.
And That Place was Awesome.. Then I Ask To My Friend If He Want to Explore Closer to the lake..and there we go..
Far Away with the dangerous road..and we got nothing..at least we know that Batur Lake is Beautiful From Distance..
Note, Careful with the little girl and boy who offer you to make a temporary tattoo...they will beg on you to pay only 5000 rupiah to make a tattoo,,when finish she will charge you 50.000,- without respect.
To avoid them just ignoring without say a word

“nice view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Nice to look at from one of the surrounding viewpoints, as it is located in a former crater and in front of Mt. Agung.

“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

The lake is magnificent! Thanks to the few tourists, the atmosphere here is peaceful, quite, calm and you'd feel the harmony here.
Drive down to the lakeside, avoid the shops and annoying sellers, just enjoy the moment here. There are some small hotels around, I guess it could be a good idea to spend a night here.
