Gate of the Heaven Tour

This tour is so named, because we will visit a temple in Bali which has its own beauty from behind the gate that leads to Mount Agung. This temple is known as Lempuyang Luhur temple. This temple is 83 km from Denpasar, about 2.5 hours. This tour starts from several places before reaching Pura Lempuyang, because the driving is so far, so we invite you to do a little stop before getting to Gate of the Heaven.

After we pick you up, about 1 hour, we will visit Pura Goa Lawah. This temple is very unique, because it has a cave filled with wild bats hanging in the middle of this cave. The temple built in the 11th century has its own sanctity for the Hindus in Bali.

Our tour continues to the water park in karangasem known as Tirta Gangga. Tirta Gangga is a very famous place with a view of the pool of water, which is said to be the final restoration of King Karangasem. We choose to stop here before Lempuyang Temple is due to reduce the density of tourists visiting Tirta Gangga.

When the sun is above our heads, then, we arrive at the Lempuyang Luhur temple. This temple is famous through social media where people can create images with the background of Mount Agung with the gates of the whitewashed temple.

Our last stop is at Kerta Gosa, where we can find the oldest painting artwork in Bali, on display so beautifully on the ceiling of the building known as Bale Kambang.
