Other stunning sites to see include Bratan, Bali’s second largest lake. Here you can see a water temple with mountains in the backdrop. Tanah Lot is an impressive rock formation where you can take some lovely pictures. If you fancy a three hour trek then make your way to the top of Mount Batur, it’s an active volcano with some of the best views on the island.
