- Kintamani is a village in the north of the island Bali in the Bangli district. The village of long stretched streets lies at an altitude of 1470 meters in the northern mountain of the island, on the main road from Bangli to Singaraja. On the western edge of the outer two calderas, the road offers views to the volcanic landscape of the 1717 meter high Gunung Batur, which is about six kilometers east. A curvy secondary road leading to the foot of the mountain branches eight kilometers southeast of Kintamani in Penelokan (1,450 meters) and leads down to the bottom of the caldera, 120 to 300 meters lower. The ascent and descent walk directly from Kintamani to the summit of Gunung Batur takes about six hours. Between both places and practically combined with Kintamani is the road settlement Batur. The road from Kintamani in the north direction continues up to Penulisan, where the Pura Tegeh Koripan is located at 1745 meters, the highest temple of Bali. The heavily clouded sky in the top of the hill gives a lot of precipitation. The fertile volcanic soils are used especially for cultivation of Arabica coffee.
