Gunung Batur pano, a photo by Dad Bear on Flickr.

A 180′ panoramic view of the highest peak in Bali, Gunung Batur, which is an active volcano (last eruption in 1999) which rises up to 5633 ft above sea level. It overlooks Lake Batur, or Danau Batur which lies to the South East.

The weather this time in Late May 2011, was dry and cooling, high up in the mountains. Not surprising that many government ministers and wealthy folk from Jakarta, have getaway villas near Gunung Batur, so as to get away from stifling heat which often envelopes Jakarta.
