The sun wake us up arround 6.30 AM, but was so early so we decide to lay an hour on the Pool's bed seeing the sunrise and being lazy and having a bath on the pool... Envy us ha ha ha
First stop of the day on the way to Kintamani. Goa Gajah is an small cave with an stunning entry, once inside there's not so much things to do, but outside you cand find a big pools for bath and the rest of an old Budhist temple
Many people warn me about Besakih, the most important temple complex of Bali, located, ofcourse on the Gnung Aur, the most sacred mountain of the island. It's a nice place, but you can't go inside the temples and the guides are not necessary, they are so agressive (even paying the entrance fee they told you that you need one, don't believe them, they can't entry you on the temples), also the bikes! I suggest to use a bike if you wanna reach easyly the temple , we spend 10 minutes walking on a hill.
Besakih was so impresive with the Gnung Agur behind and even more in a day like the one we choose, It was a kind of born celebration, thousands of Balinesse pilgrims trying to reach Besakih
It's really impresive the Volcano, the rest of the last eruption and the Lake, let you know the power of the nature, our driver lead us to a really good location restaurant, but the food was expensive(200.000IDR both) and not so good...typical for tourists :p
Not so interesting but we found 2 dogs tryint to perpetue the specie... :p that's all, so skip it
You have to use a kind of belt thet they provide you...for a tip.
Aioh's fabourite...It's so hard to reach you have to descend 350 stairs...later you'll have to to ascend :p Really quiet, between rice paddies, the temple is being reconstructed, that's why you could find many men and woman carrying some stone bricks on the head.
We have finish early so we took a bath and lead to Ubud for a 2h massage (that wasn't quite good) and dinner at "Lotus Pond" from the famous "Cafe Lotus", the food was good but the juices were fantastic ha ha ha
