We drove about an hour north of Ubud past the famous terraced rice fields ( so you could combine this into one days trip if time is short). We departed fairly early in the morning which turns out to be a great idea. The skies were bright blue and later it clouded over so our views and pictures were much better. The volcano mountains appear quite lush except for the recent lava flows ( from the 1990's). The town of Kintemani is a great viewing spot but as noted in many guides, the souvenir sellers are willing to stalk you. Next we drove down to the lake. The lake is pretty but strangely lacking in boat activity. I am not sure why. We enjoyed a visit to the hot springs. It was built up in pavilion-like pools just at lake level. We enjoyed the swim and the beautiful location.
