Offering a peaceful escape from the tourist crowds, Bangli - a small regency southwest of the island of Bali - will welcome you into a world of gorgeously green streets and traditional villages that are oozing with age-old charm. During your stay here, don't miss a visit to the ancient Hindu Kehen Temple (one of the most sacred in the area). Perched atop a stony staircase that you must climb to reach it and laid out across a succession of terraces, this structure is truly magnificent. The sculptures of animals, dragons and hieratic characters are a thing of beauty and beside them, sits a giant Banyan tree that’s said to be 700 years old.
For a dose of action on your Bangli holidays, brace yourself for a tough, but incredible, sunrise trek up Mount Batur - one of Bali’s active volcanos. Set off under the cover of darkness with a guide and after a two hour trek you’ll reach the top and be rewarded for your efforts with the deep orange glow of the sun as it rises above the horizon. Relax and explore the area afterwards; take in the outstanding landscape, sample its hot springs and dream of your next Balinese adventure.
