The Basics

Visitors come to Kintamani not for its beaches (there are none) but for its stunning active volcano, outdoor adventures, and cultural appeal. One of the most popular activities in Kintamani is a sunrise trek to the top of sacred Mt. Batur, often complete with breakfast cooked in volcanic steam. But it’s also possible to cycle downhill through UNESCO-listed rice terraces, soak in the hot springs on the shores of Lake Batur, tour a coffee plantation, watch a traditional barong dance performance, or visit one of the island’s most important directional temples, Pura Ulun Danu Batur. Many island tours stop for lunch at a Kintamani restaurant overlooking Mt. Batur and Lake Batur.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Kintamani is a must-see for adventure travelers and outdoor enthusiasts.

  • Bring a warm layer of clothing if climbing Mt. Batur volcano: The temperatures here are significantly cooler than the towns of Bali’s coast.

  • Experience the region by volcano trekking, downhill cycling, or Balinese cultural sightseeing.

How to Get There

Kintamani sits at least two hours from the beaches of south Bali, so many travelers visit on a day trip from Ubud. It takes time, patience, and a good handle on Indonesian to manage the infrequent “bemo” minivan services that connect the villages in the area, so most travelers opt to hire a private driver or join an organized tour.

When to Get There

If Mt. Batur is on your Kintamani agenda, it’s best to climb early in the day, before cloud cover obscures the views—you have the best chance of a spectacular sunrise during Bali’s dry season (roughly, May through October). Lake Batur can get surprisingly choppy in the afternoon.
