In Bali, there are many tourist places that you can visit. Karangasem Regency is an example. The district at the eastern end of the Island of the Gods also has many places and locations, which are no less beautiful than other locations.
Not only cultural tourism but in Karangasem there are also natural attractions that will spoil your eyes. Here are some of them:
- Climb Mount Agung
Mount Agung is the highest mountain on the island of Bali and is still active. Even a few months ago, his activities became turbulent, causing residents to evacuate. However, this mountain with a height of 3000 meters above sea level is very worth visiting.
If you intend to climb to the top of Mount Agung, two climbing routes can be passed. First, you can go through the Besakih Temple climbing route in Rendang District, and the second through Pasar Agung Temple, Selat Village, Sebudi District. When you get to the top, you will never regret it. Tired will be paid off completely with the panorama presented.
At the top, you can watch the beautiful sunrise on the Island of a Thousand Temples. In addition, you can also see Mount Batur, Lake Batur, and Mount Rinjani from a distance.
- Besakih Temple
Tours to Pura Bekasih can be done in a package with a tour to Mount Agung. The reason, is the two places are located in one location close together. You can visit Besakih Temple shortly or after climbing Mount Agung. Besakih Temple itself is located in Besakih Village, Rendang District.
Besakih Temple is a complex of sacred places of worship for Hindus in Bali. This place is always crowded with tourists because it is the largest temple in Bali.
- Tirta Gangga
The next place worth visiting while in Karangasem is Tirta Gangga. This place is a water palace built by the King of Karangasem in 1948. This place was damaged when Mount Agung erupted in 1963. However, it was later renovated and is now used as a tourist spot.
The complex features a maze of pools and fountains and is surrounded by beautiful, leafy gardens. In addition, it is also surrounded by green rice fields.
- Overnight with a beach atmosphere at Asah Hill
Karangasem does not only have mountain nuanced tours. In this district, there are also natural attractions with beautiful beach panoramas. One of them is Bukit Asah which is located at Bug Bug Village. With its beautiful scenery, this place has now become one of the leading tours of the Karangasem Regency.
At Asah Hill, you can spoil your eyes with the beautiful blue sea, white sand beaches, and cliffs around the location. Here, you can also witness the beauty of the sunset and sunrise.
For those who want to stay overnight, Bukit Asah has a campground concept. So, visitors can bring their tent or rent it around the location.
- Pura Luhur Lempuyang, the most phenomenal photo spot in Bali
Instagram kids will be familiar with this one place. Yes, Pura Luhur Lempuyang is often used by tourists as a very beautiful photo spot. This temple has a beautiful Mount Agung background from a distance.
The surrounding location is also filled with shady trees and neatly arranged rice fields. This place is located in Tista Village, Abang District.
Before going to this place, you must prepare for physical endurance. The reason is, its location is in the mountains and it takes about 1750 stairs to climb to reach it. However, my tiredness immediately paid off after arriving at the location.
