Beratan Sunrise

Lake Beratan is the name given to the shallow lake located at 1231m above sea level in Budugul. At a huge 3.8km wide and with a maximum depth of 22 meters the Beratan Lake holds a volume of 49km squared.

Its close proximity with Bedugul Botanical Garden and take only around 15 minutes toward the north to Lake Buyan, has made Beratan a favorite weekend getaway for residents of Bali's southern cities.

The best way to reach the lake it through the dock at Ulun Danu temple, which is an extremely holy temple that is located on the lake and appears to be floating. This area makes an ideal cultural landscape with the surrounding traditional villages and is fantastic around sunrise and sunset.
