Two sets of stairways, each step marked with aspects of the Buddhist eightfold path lead to a meditation room featuring a seated Thai-style Buddha statue.
And further up to a another level comprising a Nepalese-style golden bell-shaped pagoda and a three-tiered Chinese-style pagoda (that was under construction at the time of our visit), also housing another golden Buddha.

From there, continue to Banjar Hot Water Spring, it’s a nature hot wellspring from the ground, has an agreeable warm temperature of 37 degrees Celsius, and it is believed can heal the diseases.
The hot spring water gushes from the mouths of eight stone carved naga (mythical, dragon-like creatures) into the oblong shaped upper pool.
With lush, jungle-clad slopes surrounding the sacred hot springs of Banjar, also known as ‘Air Panas’, makes this hot spring be one of the island’s most popular.
Then drive up to Munduk and Melanting waterfalls are among Bali’s most scenic, located within Bali’s lush and forested central-northern highland region.
The falls are a highlight feature of the namesake village of Munduk in Buleleng, North Bali, reachable after a 300m walk from the main road on which trekkers can enjoy soothing nature sights and sounds along a forest route.
Water flows down from a small crack surrounded by thick shrubs. Since the waterfall is not quite high, try to stand under the waterfall.
It is refreshing as the strong shower hits the head. Stay in water for some time so the sulfur can work its wonder for the skin’s health.
Continue trip to Gobleg Hill known as Wanagiri Hidden Hills, a popular photo hotspot among tourists and photographers.
Wanagiri Hidden Hill is punctuated by a series of whimsical vantage points over Lake Tambingan and Lake Buyan.
There’s a human-sized bird’s nest, an Indonesian interpretation of the Eiffel Tower and a giant swing overlooking the water below. So you’ll be sure to get plenty of good photos for Instagram.
You will then visit the iconic Handara Gate, well known as the pathway to serenity. It is a popular landmark for tourists who seek for one of Bali’s top Instagrammable locations to have some iconic picture for your social media.

At the end of the day head to the iconic temple of Pura Ulun Danu Bratan which sitting on a small island on the lake., just as you always see in the postcards and on Instagram!.
Ulun Danu Bratan Temple was built in adoration of the Goddess Danu. Danu, in the Balinese tongue, means lake, while the goddess Danu is queen of water, lakes and rivers.
