When spending holidays, making a visit to tourist attractions can become an option. It does not only kill time, but also eliminates fatigue after busyness with a myriad of activities. Among the many attractions, Batu Kursi (literally chair stone) may become an option that can be included in your itinerary. The hill is located in West Buleleng, precisely at Pemuteran village, Gerokgak, that offers two views at once, namely Mountain View and sea view.
Looking for this object is not difficult. Just come and cross the path of Seririt-Gilimanuk. Approximately, it is about 15 minutes’ drive from Pulaki Temple to the west. There visitors will be immediately greeted by signpost right in front of the intersection reading “Pura Batu Chair” (Batu Kursi Temple) and then you immediately turn left to park your vehicle. After getting down, the eyes will be instantly pampered by towering hills. To get to the temple, you are only charged with voluntary donation by local attendant.
After that, the journey to the hill and the temple immediately starts. The road is quite uphill and must step on hundreds of stairs. Having reached in the middle of the way, your fatigue will get paid with a beautiful view on hilltop with verdant trees. Some areas are just overgrown by grasses generating a yellowish green color. At first glance, it looks like a Teletabies Hill. It is suitable to be used as a background of photography.
This attraction does not include special shelter but when summer heats do not worry. Visitors can take shelter under a neem tree. Pouring sweat will immediately disappear after being blown by refreshing sea breezes. At that time, visitors can witness the beauty of the sea at Pemuteran in turquoise color and so does the very exotic Menjagan Island. Other than enjoying the natural atmosphere, visitors can simultaneously say prayers at the Batu Kursi Temple located at the middle of the hills. By doing so, the holidays will be getting more complete.
Attendant of the tourist attraction, Ketut Mariada, said that the tourist visits to the location is quite crowded within the past few years chiefly during holidays. They are mostly teenagers because the location is pretty good to take selfie. “During holidays, the visit reaches hundreds of people. Every day there are always visitors especially young people,” he said. (BTN/kmb)
