After a short 45-minute drive from Nirarta, into the wooded hills close to Mount Agung, we reach Besakih, the enormous mother temple complex at the centre of Balinese spiritual life.

We pause for prayer and reflection in the main Penateran Temple honouring the three fundamental energies of life, at the peaceful and mysterious ‘Dark Temple’, and, time permitting, and at the King Cave Grotto with its natural stone arch.

From Besakih a short half-hour drive brings us to Kintamani, with some magnificent views of the crater lake below. We will enjoy an excellent buffet lunch on the rim of the caldera crater, overlooking the lake and volcano.

After lunch, we visit Batur Temple, honouring the aspect of the Divine connected to Water and the conserver of life, Wishnu. This temple is home also to a charming and powerful Chinese Buddhist shrine.

After Batur, we visit, the once forbidden sacred temple of Puncak Penulisan, long ago, as its name suggests, connected with writing. The temple, set high above a long flight of stairs, is a place where besides enjoying the peace and silence of the temple you can set your intention. You will see a collection of old Siva lingams and statues of Ganesha, before returning to Nirarta.
