karangasem regency

  !  
 

Karangasem regency in eastern most bali is dominated by the towering cone of Mt. agung, the island's tallest and most revered volcano. Dormant for a century,tirta gangga agung erupted with devastating force in 1963, killing over 1,000 people and destroying many antiquities.

Evidence of this cataclysm can still be found along the regency's north-east littoral, where volcanic boulders pepper the countryside. After Mt. Agung erupted in 1963 the capital changed names to amlapura.

The "Puri Agung Kanginan" palace features a blend of Balinese, Dutch, and Chinese architecture. To the south are the ruins of the "Taman Ujung" pleasure palace. On Karangasem's south coast, 16 km past the "Padangbai" and the Lombok ferry terminal, the small fishing village of "Candi Dasa" has experienced a tourist boom of its own and now boasts a number of restaurant, hotels and even discos.

It was in this area that the first European explorers "discovered" Bali, and 400 years later, despite the erosion of her beaches, Candi Dasa remains a beautiful and pastoral spot.

The diving in this area can be good and a couple of exclusive resorts offer idyllic seclusion from the better-traveled parts of the island. Outside the town is the coastal tourist area of Candi Dasa, named after and old temple on the hillside, across the lagoon is Gandhi meditation center.

Snorkeling around a shipwreck is superb up north at Tulamben. Tenganan is the only place in Indonesia where double ikat gringsing cloth is woven.

Festivals here and in Dauh Tukad in June-July feature wooden ferries wheels and ritual battles with thorny leaves. Nearby villages of dauh tukad, bungaya, asak, timbrah, perasi, bugbug, jasi, ababi, seraya, sengkidu, ngis, bebandem and padangkerta have colorful rituals with ceremonial dances for women and men, trance battiest, and spectacular offerings.

Beautiful brocades are woven in sidemen. Winding mountain roads through salak snakeskin fruit farms and terraced hills lead to besakih, bali's most important temple from the outside, but the view is gorgeous and the air refreshing. Mount Agung should only be climbed by experienced hikers with a guide.
