We have travelled to see mountain and lake Batur but we were stopped by 2local "guides" who just didn't allow us to go further, shouting at us that we MUST pay, when we answered that we didn't need their services as guides because came to this area for hot springs and don't want to go up but just want to walk around one of these man started to push my husband , then ran for nearest bungalow and was back with a huge stick and started to wipe with the stick!!
We were just shocked and find no other way but to go away, all the way back from that point to hot spring (500 meters) he and his "friend" were following us on their motorbike just 2 meters behind shouting that we have to "respect their rules" and breaking that huge stick into pieces (most probably this was the way to show who is " the king" in this area)
Unfortunately it really spoils the impression about whole 2weeks trip to Bali
Ps I use trip advisor for2years but usually don't write feedback (this one is the first one-unfortunately negative), but I just can not remain silent in this situation
