Shots N Snippets

Danau Tamblingan is not exactly on the tourist trail although it's mentioned in the travel guides. Located furthest in the Bedugul area, if you are coming from the south, it is the last of the three lakes in the scenic mountains. Apparently the last two lakes, Danau Buyan and Danau Tamblingan were once a huge massive lake before a landslide split them into two in the 19th century.

When we got here, we had found that Mother Nature seemed to visit this area again. It is believed that there had been some volcanic activity of late which led to the waters to rise approximately 15 meters. As a result, the pura which was once next to the lake, appeared to have sunken into Danau Tamblingan. Even the villagers' homes had not been spared. The majority of them were partially submerged and there were some makeshift huts just meters away from the original spot.

Hello... I Am Josh

A Travel Writer & Photographer from South East Asia

A little about me

Josh For some, it's shopping therapy. Others, movie therapy. Yet more, reading therapy. For me, it's writing therapy.
 
Why writing? When I travel, I enjoy first-hand the experience like in shopping therapy. But when I write about my travels, I live vicariously the experience again, as if like a movie sequel (or more like GroundHog Day, except that this is fun!). Yes, writing evokes the memories, the fun and the not-so-fun but all-in-all it gives the satisfaction of reliving the sense of place once more.
 
With images, it enhances the experience down one's travel memory lane. With this in mind, I hope to share my travel stories in words and images with you. For your escape therapy! More...
