ULUN DANU BRATAN TEMPLE
Ulun Danu is a picturesque architectural monument and a water temple complex standing on the shores of Lake Bratan. Built in the 17th century to honor the Balinese water goddess Devi Danu, the temple is used for religious ceremonies and offerings. The complex consists of five various shrines dedicated to different Hindu gods, and one Buddhist stupa. The most important and photographed part of the complex is sitting atop a small island and represents an 11-story meru tower. Surrounded on all sides by still, reflective, and crystal clear waters, it gives out an optical illusion of a floating temple. Ulun Danu is an incredibly popular landmark and when you get there you’ll understand why. In addition to the stunning, enchanting scenery you’ll immediately fall in love with, there’s a fantastic spiritual atmosphere of unity with nature and God.
PURA LEMPUYANG LUHUR TEMPLE
Pura Lempuyang is a complex of 7 Hindu temples nestled along the slope of Mount Lempuyang. The main temple, Pura Lempuyang Luhur, also known as “The Gateway To Heaven”, lies at the very top of the mountain, at 1175 meters above sea level. Getting to the highest observation viewpoint can be somehow a strenuous task as the route runs through 1700 steps up. However, the panorama opening to the visitors of the temple looks completely surreal. You’ll have a unique opportunity to capture Bali’s legendary scenery – the view of Mount Agung framed within white-stone carved temple gates, and sheltered in an emerald valley amongst curly floating clouds. After taking the iconic photograph, we recommend you to spend some time here roaming around and exploring the surroundings of the complex. You will surely stumble upon some amazingly beautiful photo shooting spots.
Near the southern coast of the Bukit Peninsula, there is an abandoned Boeing 737. No one seems to know how the plane got there. It’s nither an airport nor an old aviation graveyard, but a field located near a limestone quarry site. There are several interesting stories explaining the plane being there, but none of them has been confirmed. Meanwhile, it has become, in a way, an art object and a popular location for Instagram photoshoots. It’s a strictly guarded private territory and entry is forbidden, however just off the side of the main road there is an awesome viewpoint that would make for a breathtaking selfie.
BALANGAN BEACH VIEWPOINT
Balangan beach is situated in the south of Bali. It’s an ideal place for keen surfers and beach lovers. Blue sky, palm trees, gentle ocean breeze and soft white sand brings out perfectly mellow tropical vocation vibes. The viewpoint on the northern tip of Balangan Beach provides a gorgeous panoramic view of the 200-meter wide coastline with turquoise water, surrounded by mighty cliffs. You can spend a romantic evening here admiring the scenery and watching the sun going down across the horizon, and, of course, capture some beautiful photos.
