Volcanic Vacation: Climb a Caldera in Bali

Bali is one of the most famous tourist destinations in the world with many gay and lesbian couples, singles and families visiting this gay welcoming paradise.  There's a lot more to Bali than beautiful beaches, wellness spas and great nightclubs.  You can actually find loads to do under the tourist radar screen if you get out of the main meccas and head for the hills.

By straying just a little from the beaten path, an entirely different perspective of the island can be explored. Climbing up an active volcano to view a spectacular sunrise from the summit is one way to do it.
The vast Batur Caldera is one of the most beautiful in the world. It has been described as “Trekking with the gods.” After climbing the caldera wall you will trek along the edge for breathtaking views of the amazing volcanic landscape.
After the descent past lava flows and untainted villages, think how good it will feel to pamper your feet in the pool at sunset – before an evening of unforgettable dancing
