Bali's 'Mother Mountain' Mount Agung dominates the landscape in Eastern Bali, providing a focus for travellers photos, a challenging trek, and fertile soils which lend themselves to create some of the lushest, greenest scenes in Bali. Eastern Bali is the spot to kick back & relax, whilst also getting in touch with the traditions and heritage of the island of the Gods. Mount Agung tops an impressive 3,150m (that is if you don't belong to the tribe who believe the summit to have been blown off in a 1960s eruption), and the views from the summit are simply breath-taking on a clear day, and not just because of the altitude.
Bali's 'Mother Mountain' is also home to Bali's 'Mother Temple' – Besakih – a conglomeration of 23 individual temples cascading down the mountainside, and for the volcanophiles among you, Eastern Bali also harbours Mount Batur, a volcanic peak cradled by the deep blue Lake Batur. But enough about Bali's peaks. For those of you not inclined to pack hiking boots amid the bikinis and boardies, lush river valleys, emerald rice paddies and charming villages can be explored without the exertion of a volcano trek. For example, the winding Sidemen road snakes through a beautiful river valley, and is the perfect stomping ground for a scenic amble or leisurely cycle.
