The fascination of Tamblingan Lake

Tamblingan Lake is a lake located on the northern slope of Mount Dimples, Munduk Village area, District Banjar, Buleleng, Bali. It’s located in the plateau area with green hill surrounded. It is situated beside of Buyan Lake with cool weather surrounds it. Hence, both lakes are famous as Bali Twin Lake. This lake features with magnificent view of nature and and the existence of traditional boats docking on the lake edge. This lake is encircled by hill and covered by fresh cold atmosphere.

Tamblingan name comes from two words in Bahasa Bali, “Tamba” means drugs, and “Elingang” means memory or spiritual abilities. Told in Kanda Deity Purana Lontar Kutara Bangsul that people in the region is said to have exposed to the plague epidemic. As a way out someone who is purified and then down to the small lake at the bottom of the village to fetch water for the drug. Thanks to prayer and spiritual abilities he water was then used as a medicine and can cure the villagers. Tamba and Elingang said this is gradually becoming Tamblingan. Based on history, the water in the lake was once used by the saint to cure the plague that hit the region. Since that time, in the area of this lake stands many temples.

As one of the natural attractions, Lake Tamblingan not developed in the direction of modern tourism in order to preserve nature and the environment. Which became the main attraction of this place is not only its natural charm, but also because of the many temples that stores the history and development of civilization and culture of Bali in particular concerning the establishment and development of the village Tamblingan.
It is on purpose that Lake Tamblingan has not been developed for tourism activities in order  to conserve  its serenity and sustainability. Its local government bans all machine-driven transport on its waters. For this reason you will only find traditional rowing boats here which are  tied to the shore. These are used to go fishing. When you visit the lake,  do not forget to bring your camera to shoot this wonderful panorama. Alternately you can go trekking through tropical rainforests around this lake.

WHAT TO DO AT TAMBLINGAN LAKE
Photography Enthusiasts
This spot is perfect especially for all of you who love taking your tripod out and capture beautiful landscape photographs. During our visit there were several photography guides and tours there. Not many people, but you could tell they are getting some long exposure shots there. It is also a popular location for pre-wedding pictures, so don’t be surprised if you see several couples on a photo-shoot there.

Trekking
Jungle Trekking - Tropical Rain forest is combine between trekking on jungle and experience crossing the calm lake waters in canoe.

GOOD TO KNOW
Water Levels

If you saw a few images of the lake online and all of them with water surrounding the temple. To our surprise, there was not water around the temple so we initially thought we arrived at the wrong location! When, in fact, the water generally only surrounds the temple in December or when it has rained heavily for a few days. So if you have a preference on when you’d like to photograph this location – keep in mind the water levels change.
