The village of Trunyan, or Terunyan (pop. 600), is located on the eastern shores of Lake Batur, just on the foot of the Mount Abang, Kintamani district of Bangli regency. Trunyan village is believed to be found during 882-914 AD (referring to the founding of a temple to Batara Da Tonta), inhabited by descendants of the native Balinese – the Bali Aga.

The Trunyan Village
Trunyan is an original Balinese village. Trunyan is located at the edge of the Lake Batur across Toya Bungkah village. This village can be accessed by boat in 15 minutes sailing from a small harbor at Buahan village (which is located about 4 kms from Penelokan village)
A scenic morning drive direct to Penelokan where a steep winding road leads down to the shores of lake Batur. Motor boats await to take you across the lake to a village strangling on the brink between past and future. Trunyan, due to its isolated position and the secretive nature is a people, has retained its pre-Hindu animist customs and a tradition of primitive ritual and ceremony unique in Bali.
The inhabitants call themselves the ‘Bali Aga’ or ‘Original Balinese’. Here the dead are not cremated, but simply laid out in a ravine not far from the village of the mercy of nature and the elements.
The strange phenomenon is that there is no odour from the dead bodies. The villagers attribute this to the scent of the perfumed ‘menyan’ tree from which Trunyan takes its name – Taru menyan. On the opposite shores if the lake the volcano looms high above the small village of Toya Bungkah, so named for its hot springs that flow into the cold lake waters. In recent years a narrow road has been constructed over the lava connecting this village with the outside world, and the hot springs have become a popular retreat.
