Approximately 8½ Hours
The first stop on this fascinating tour is at the famed Sangeh monkey forest, with its towering nutmeg trees. Watch hundreds of resident monkeys frolic among these trees as you enjoy the cool of the shade.
Continue to the mountainous area of Bedugul to see the Lake Bratan at 4,000 feet above sea level in the crater of Mt Catur.
Alongside Lake Bratan is Pura Ulun Danu, a temple dedicated to the water goddess. While visiting the temple, you may have a chance to see local Balinese people praying and offering incense. The scenery here is stunning and the climate is usually a bit cooler than that of the seaside area. Snap a few photos of the twin lakes of Buyan and Tamblingan -- two of the largest lakes on Bali.
Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant in the highland village of Bedugul, a picturesque, cool and tranquil area.
En route back to the port, you will stop at a few local fruit and vegetable markets, where you can bargain for tropical delicacies with unpronounceable names.
Please note: This tour only is for guests whose cruise does not begin or end in Benoa. Wear comfortable walking shoes and light clothing. Bring a hat, sunscreen and insect repellent.
