Yana, Melvin and I went for a motorbike ride to Pura Luhur Batubatu from Balian.
We left about mid afternoon and with Wayan's directions we were off. Well, his directions weren't too good 'turn left just before the second new bridge' as this was a dead end that veered under the bridge and stopped.
Eventually, we found the right turn off and after about 1/2 hour of riding we came to a sign indicating the way.
It eventually started and finished very quickly.
We journeyed onwards towards the temple. It was very scenic with lush vegetation, mossy statues and walls, a series of statues with water gushing from the mouths, a lake with a temple in the centre, and tiered structures with each temple. It was very enjoyable to walk around.
