What is Batur Natural Hot Spring?

Batur Natural Hot Spring, also known as Toya Bungkah Hot Springs, is a series of geothermal pools offering a tranquil retreat on the edge of Lake Batur, right at the foot of Mount Batur in Kintamani, Bali, Indonesia. It's a place where I would often bring friends and family to unwind after a day of trekking or cycling around the caldera. The hot springs are a perfect mirage of relaxation, with therapeutic waters that are said to possess healing properties, thanks to the rich minerals from the volcanic activity. With a scenic vista that boasts the beautiful combination of the serene lake and the impressive backdrop of an active volcano, this natural wonder isn't just a hot spring — it's a healing sanctuary offering a feast for the eyes and a balm for the soul.

History of Batur Natural Hot Spring

Peek back in time, and you'll find that the Batur Natural Hot Spring is as ancient as the land itself. For countless generations, locals revered these hot springs for their curative properties. It was believed that the water was a gift from the gods, and thus, the springs were often utilized for ritual purification. Over the years, as the world began to shrink with the advent of global travel, the secret of these springs spread. Infrastructure was developed to cater to a growing number of visitors, yet careful steps were taken to maintain the natural beauty and traditional essence that make these hot springs unique. The community here respects the balance between nature and nurture; the springs have sustained local people for centuries, and in turn, they are protected and cherished by those who know their worth.
