Mount Lempuyang - Temple at End of Road - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
Having driven to the end of this track with the 4 wheel hire car struggling in 1st gear, the wind on Mount Lemuyang was amazing. It very nearly took the tripod (and camera) off the temple terrace and down the hillside. Worth it though. Now how do you do a 3-point turn with no space?
Mount Lempuyang - Temple at End of Road - FURTHER INFORMATION
Mount Lempuyang - Temple at End of Road - Bali visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Mount Lempuyang - Temple at End of Road' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Lesser Sunda Islands.
Panorama from the end of the road on a track up Mount Lempuyang in Bali. Be warned that it can get very windy on this volcano, and there is a significant temperature difference to being on the beaches of Bali. From the point that this picture was taken it was going to be another copule of hours to the temple on foot, which was not possible to do in the time available. The views from the top are spectacular on a clear day, but to get to Lempuyang Temple requires a whole day.
Just uphill from the point where the road became impassable for cars was this dilapidated temple in ruins. There is no way that this panoramic photograph can convey the strength of the wind at this height which was uprooting trees and breaking branches and scattering them over the track. Further back down the road is a lovely view over some rice fields and a temple called Pura Puseh (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.
