Thankfully we managed to spot a small side on the road indicating Lake Buyan and around a kilometre down a rough road, we arrived at our destination. Situated a few 100m lower then Lake Bratan meant that there was virtually no fog in comparison and we got some pretty nice views across the expanse of water. Another added bonus was a beautiful small temple, which was located 50m from the shore. We ambled around for half an hour before we had to leave as time was beginning to tick on.
Our next stop on our journey across Bali was Lake Tamblingan, which was quite hard to view from the elevated viewing stations on the road due to trees and branches and also residual fog. What we could make out of it looked quite pretty. We continued along the winding roads, descending at great pace.
We eventually made it to Munduk, our final destination in the mountains. The area was very scenic with lush valleys and rice terraces spread as far as the eye could see. We didn't have too long to look around as we still had a fair distance to cover. It took another 30 minutes to descend to the coastal road, followed by another 30 minutes behind a seemingly endless line of traffic, all making its way along to Lovina and beyond. This was actually the toughest section to drive in, with large trucks kicking up dirt and dust. We made it to Lovina around 5.30 pm with stinging eyes and a large appetite
