Lake Tamblingan is one of Bali’s hidden treasures; a serene getaway with lush vegetation and undefiled nature which gives visitors the ultimate tranquil experience.
The lake is tucked away in Munduk village, Banjar in Buleleng regency. It is not an expansive lake and covers just about 0.5 miles squared. What makes this lake stand out is the fact that the Bali government has taken precise measures to conserve the natural environment of the lake.
