Bedugul is the name used to cover a large area of the central highlands of Bali around the villages of Bedugul itself, Candikuning, Pancasari, Pacung and Wanagiri (amongst others). This is an area of great natural beauty.

The focus point of the area centres on the three crater lakes of Bratan (Beratan), Buyan and Tamblingan, and the nearby botanical gardens. The whole area is at an altitude of 700 metres or more, with the tallest mountain peaks above 2,000 metres, and it can be distinctly chilly here.

The climate in the elevated areas of this region is remarkably cooler than elsewhere on the island, bring some warm clothes as temperatures can get to a low of 10 degrees Celsius at night. The rain is a lot less predictable here, especially when you get high up the mountains.
