The normally quiet and serene Lake Beratan located towards the north of Bali, wellknown for its iconic graceful temple, will come alive in the next two months as the Third Ulun Danu Festival 2016 gets underway from 5th June to 14 August. To be staged each weekend, on Saturdays and Sundays, the Ulun Danu festival presents a range of original Balinese dances from surrounding villages, cultural parades, and a culinary festival. Already on opening day it has drawn crowds from around the region and international tourists.
Participated by 1,200 artists from throughout the district of Tabanan, the event promises rarely shown colorful dances such as the bunga sandat serasi, blegajut, gebongan and many more.
Besides organized to attract more visitors to this northern area of Bali, the Festival is aimed at conserving local culture which in turn is expected to increase the welfare of the local population.
Located 1,200 meters above sea level the air here is cool, protected by looming mountains. The Ulun Danu Beratan temple with its twin the Ulun Danu Batur temple at Lake Batur are Bali's most important water temples that are specifically dedicated to the goddess of the Lakes which are the source for irrigation of the surrounding lush green paddy fields.
