Candikuning is to the north of Bali. The weather here is a lot cooler than on the beaches, so bring some warm clothes. I remember being really cold when on high ground!
One of the two highlights of Candikuning is the Bali Botanic Garden, which spreads across 154 hectares of land. I spent several hours walking among the approximately 1700 varieties of plants and trees - not to mention that I had a great time on the rope course in the middle of the garden (also accessible for children).
Another location you should not miss out on in Candikuning is the Pura Ulun Danu Beratan temple. It is located against the backdrop of the mountains near Begudul, beside Lake Bratan which has been rebaptised "lake of the sacred mountain" because of the region's relatively high fertility rate.
