Tamblingan Lake is a lake located in the plateau area with green hills 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 a magnificent view of nature and the existence of traditional canoes docking on the lake edge. The traditional canoes can be rented for photography sessions.
The entrance to Tamblingan Lake leads through a rain forest with tall trees where I take my clients for photoshoot too. We highly recommend Tamblingan Lake for anyone who likes to get away from mainstream photo spot locations like Ubud. It’s probably one of the most beautiful spots we discovered in Bedugul area after Lake Beratan. The lake is very rural compared to most tourist locations in other parts of Bali.
The best time to shoot in Tamblingan Lake is before sunrise time when the lake still covered by a fresh cold atmosphere. Be here as early as 6 am so you can watch the fog slowly disappeared when the sunrise came.
Rp 500,000 (USD $35) to rent two traditional canoes, one for the photographer and one for the client. A woman will paddle the canoe and take you to the middle of the lake, don’t worry they are very professional.
