Bali is certainly not all beach, sand, and sun. In the central-north region of Bali, in Lake Bratan lies a mountainous region called Bedugul. During the nine days I stayed in Bali, I spent seven days (25 June – 02 July 2012) in this cold, chilly place, which reaches as low as 9 degrees in the evening. Temperature is shocking because Bali is most famous for its long white sand beach and the sun. In fact, I packed only one jacket, which I wore for seven days. Ewww.
Bedugul is about 3 hours away by bus from Bali city center. To get to the Bedugul Wana Villa where we are booked, we have to cross Lake Bratan to the other side. I went back and forth a couple of times, and there are times when the fog is too thick, that nothing is visible. In one of our rides, we had to stop in the middle and wait for the fog to clear.
We stayed in this wonderful place called Bedugul Wana Villa. Accommodation here are comfortable and spacious villas, that could fit four people but designed for only two.
