Vol­ca­noes

hellobali Guide to Bali - - A-Z OF BALINESE TRADITIONAL CULTURE -

CON­TROL­LING the is­land’s cli­mate and rain­fall and re­spon­si­ble for its fer­til­ity, the north-east­ern in­te­rior of Bali is dom­i­nated by a clus­ter of vol­canic peaks, two of which are ac­tive. The mas­sive outer caldera a of Batur con­tains a lake, an ideal cli­mate for fruit and veg­etable grow­ing and a num­ber of vil­lages. At over 3,000 me­tres, Agung, fur­ther east, is the tallest and the is­land’s fo­cal point.
