We left the bus at the village of Penelokan which is located at about 1,400 meter at the southern crater rim of the huge caldera. The sight was simply put glorious! The alomost 14 kilometer wide caldera at our feet, Gunung Agung, Gunung Batur and Gunung Abang clearly visble - stunning. Unfortunately the bargainers are stunningly insistent, too. I would call Penelokan a tourist trap - except for the vista. We took some pics and then thumbed a ride down into the caldera. There we finally found a hotel room in the small village of Toya Bungkah. We spent the rest of the day strolling around. After our return we booked a tour for the follwing day. If I remember it correctly we paid about 30 $. On the following day I found out that in terms of price this was "midfield".
