// Bali

The island of Bali lies between Java to the west and Lombok to the east. It is home to the majority of Indonesian Hindus and has been a popular international tourist destination for many decades. The provincial capital is Denpasar. Getting to the island is easy – by plane to Ngurah Rai airport or (overland from Jakarta) by train and then ferry from Banyuwangi on the eastern coast of Java. Roads are generally of a good quality but taxis on the island are relatively expensive so it is better to arrange vehicle hire.

An ascent of the majestic holy mountain of Agung is one of the finest hikes in Indonesia, Batur is a fascinating volcano popular with tourists and Batukaru is a much less frequented forest peak.
