Excursion “E” – Strawberry Hill and Ulun Danu Bratan Temple
This excursion takes you very far north to the 2nd largest volcano in Bali Mt. Batur. The journey is very short with just under 3.5 hours. On the way there is the possibility to stop at various interesting locations and to visit them. You should not overdo it, otherwise there is not enough time for the Ulun Danu Bratan temple and you should plan some time here as it is one of the biggest temples and also one of the most beautiful.
Because of this fact, this location is always very crowded.
The Ulun Danu Bratan Temple is located at the foot of Mt. Batur, one of the two active volcanoes in Bali. His last breakout with major damage was in 1963. After that, there were again and again smaller Erruptionen or only warnings of a possible outbreak (source Wikipedia). The traces of the last great eruption can still be seen very well today.
After (or before) visiting the temple, you have the opportunity to visit the huge fruit and spice market on Strawberry Hill. Here you will surely find a keepsake for your family and friends and if you are hungry you will also find some cheap fresh fruits.
