Usually you have to take a shuttle (40000 Rp) to the entrance but when we went they just flagged us up. Ladies have to have their shoulders and back covered. Wear a t-shirt or you can rent the sarong and wrap for 10 000 Rp....More

After three hours driving and hiking at the mountain we finally arrived at the moment and the priest was very kindly to bless us.

First the good news: the temple where everyone takes a picture is a short 5 minute hike and seeing it from below is pretty cool too. Everyone focuses on seeing Mt Agung through the gate split but I thought seeing it from the other side...More

Beautiful temple in the far eastern part of the island of Bali, looking on to Mount Agung. Lots of stairs and a steep climb await you, but it is well worth the hike. Yes, its popular with photoseekers and far out from everywhere, but if...More

Besakih or Lempuyang Temple? (5 Replies)
We are torn between which temple to visit whilst we stay in Ubud. Should we do both, just one or neither of these two?
September 02, 2018|
Response fromcbimages|
It really depends on what you want from a temple visit. Besakih is the Mother Temple, the most important temple in Bali. There are reports of "issues" with visits (use the search bar above) but also reports that things have improved recently. Pura Lempuyang is a series of temples climbing the side of a mountain and can take many hours to see. If you want the "instagram" shot at the gates, there is often a very long wait in a queue for your turn. Recently, my friend told me it was 1.5-2...More

I am bumping this for you as well as doing some notes: 1) Don't plan on doing both rafting and Batur volcano on same day..esp if it's your first! 2) Tegallalang is halfway up to Batur, you can combine those, or even do a bike tour that goes up to Batur... 3) Talk to your driver because the way you put it together is a bit of back and forth. There are other things to do besides just temples, the Mask and Puppet Museum is really interesting and is very close to Goa Gajah. Day 4>...More

Im planning a day tour to see sunrise at Lempuyang temple, followed by tirta Gangga. Since we are leaving early morninf (3:30am from seminyak), What would be a great place to visit one more place on the way back apart from Ubud, beach, and another water place or water fall (since we are doing these the next day)? Somewhere great to see nature, enjoying the scenery for great photo spots would be awesome. Thanks in advance!

Hi BKJUST, Seminyak to Lempuyang even at 0330 will take over 2hrs to the car park. Expect to arrive maybe shortly before 6am. Sunrise 06:30 Do you know that Pura Lempuyang is actually the top temple of a series of temples. It takes 3hrs to walk there from the car park, Do you actually mean the "Dragon Staircase" temple and Gate which is 5mins or so from the car park. The gate/temple faces Mt Agung not east. The generalroute to/from Seminyak will take you over the coast/Padangbai....More
