This imposing stratovolcano is the holiest place on the island of Bali — a place wherein the Gods themselves are said to reside. Much of Balinese religious culture is oriented around this majestic peak in east Bali’s Karangasem Regency, about two hours from Denpasar. It is the highest point on the island at a towering 9,944 feet (3,031 m). The volcano is still active and last erupted in 1964. It is considered the most challenging climb out of all of Bali’s mountains.
