Mount Lempuyang Volcano - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
Having got here, I did not have the time to make the trek up the rest of the mountain to Lempuyang temple itself, but the views on the way up were spectacular, so I decided to take this picture. Given the resolution of the Google map, it is impossible to pinpoint this location accurately at this time, but you get the idea!
Mount Lempuyang Volcano - FURTHER INFORMATION
Mount Lempuyang Volcano - Bali visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Mount Lempuyang Volcano' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Lesser Sunda Islands.
Panorama of the road up Mount Lempuyangan (Gnung Lempuyang) in eastern Bali. The road from Abang leads up Mount Lempuyangan to Lempuyang temple, one of the most sacred sites in Bali.
As this panoramic photograph shows, the views on a good day are spectacular, but be warned that the weather up the mountain, which rises to a height of about 1058m and the winds can be quite strong. The route around Gunung Lempuyang is very scenic with terraced rice fields and other cultivations. The road continued up the mountain from this point getting gradually steeper and narrower until it was impossible to take a car any further. At the top of this track was a small temple in disrepair. From there it was another 2 hour walk up 1,700 stone steps to Lempuyang temple itself. Part way up Mount Lempuyang is Pura Puseh Temple in a little village (not to be confused with the Pura Puseh temple in Batuan near Ubud).
TRAVEL DIRECTIONS AND GETTING THERE
Mount Lempuyang is on east Bali near the north of the island. Coming from the south follow roads to Amlapura and then drive on to Abang. From hear a mall track leads up the volcano.
