- Tamblingan and Buyan Lake View ( Twin Lake View)
As we explained before if we choose Full Day North Bali Tour, we will visit three lakes. That three lakes are Lake Beratan, Lake Buyan and Lake Tamblingan. In this session we will briefly explain about Lake Tamblingan. This lake is located on the northern slope of Lesung mountain, Munduk Village, Banjar District Buleleng regency. The lake is surrounded by forest so it has a cool air. The area of this lake is about 1.15km2. The beauty of the rising sun in the morning adds to the charm of the scenic beauty of this lake. To maintain the naturalness of this lake, the government forbids the lake fishermen to use boats. They only use canoe for their activities on the lake. If we want to surround the lake and enjoy the natural beauty around the lake we can rent canoe.
The history of the name of Tamblingan lake is told there are four villages that live around this lake. The four villages are Munduk Village, Gobleg Village, Gesing Village and Umejero Village. In the past epidemic struck all citizens in all four villages. Then there is someone who is considered sacred and powerful dare to come down to the lake to beg for medicine. He took the lake water and used it as a medicine for people affected by the epidemic. It’s amazing how their illness healed instantly after drinking the water. Since then the community in the four villages has a responsibility to keep the sanctity of the Lake. Finally, the lake was named Lake Tamblingan where the word Tamblingan comes from two syllables namely “tambe” which means medicine, and “elingan” which means spiritual power. The existence of several temples around the lake also adds the spiritual power of the lake tamblingan. The usual activities in the area of Lake Tamblingan is trekking in the forest around the lake and ride a canoe around the lake.
Lake Buyan is a twin of the lake tamblingan. Lake Buyan precisely located in Pancasari Village. Lake Buyan is located between two large lakes, namely Lake Beratan and Lake Tamblingan. Among these three lakes, Lake Buyan is the largest. Between Buyan and Tamblingan lakes which are separated by forests for about a kilometer, there is a pond directly linked to Buyan Lake through a narrow canal. By the people of this pond called Telaga Aya.

In addition to see the unspoiled beach, also to see the many dolphins found on this beach. By hiring a local fishing boat, we can approach the dolphins. Various lodging ranging from Inn to Cottages available at a very affordable price.
History of Lovina
Alluding to the history of Lovina, certainly can not be separated with the figure of Anak Agung Panji Tisna. Panji Tisna’s name is often written by Pandji Tisna. Around the 1950s, Anak Agung Panji Tisna, had traveled to several countries in Europe and Asia. What caught his attention especially was the life of people in India. He stayed a few weeks in Bombay (now Mumbai). The way of life and the conditions of the people there, and immediately affect the way he thought and his insight forward for Bali, especially the development of community welfare in Buleleng regency. Meanwhile, Panji Tisna also saw a beautifully laid out place for people on vacation at the beach. The land has in common with his property on the beach of Tukad Cebol, Buleleng, North Bali, which is also located between two streams. Inspiration Panji Tisna appears to build such a rest.
The appearance of Lovina in Bali
Returning from overseas in 1953, Anak Agung Panji Tisna immediately expressed his inspiration and began to build on his property, a cottage named “LOVINA”. The place is meant for the “travelers”, the term is now “tourist”, for a vacation. Equipped with 3 bedrooms for overnight stay and a small restaurant near the seafront. At that time, some business watchers feared that Panji Tisna’s plan would not work as expected. It is too early to make such a business on a secluded beach like the Tukad Cebol beach. Local cultural observers say, “Lovina” is a foreign word, not a Balinese language. Furthermore, there is no letter “v” in Balinese script. Other comments say strictly, do not use the word “Lovina”, should be removed only.
Anak Agung Panji Tisna, in 1959, sold Lovina Cottages to his younger relatives, Anak Agung Ngurah Sentanu, 22, as owner and manager. This business is doing pretty well. However, no travelers or tourists. Only a few friends of Panji Tisna came from America and Europe, as well as local government officials and entrepreneurs for a vacation. Feel lucky too, because on special days like Sundays and holidays, also on holidays like Galungan and Kuningan, many people including students who come to enjoy the natural atmosphere of the beach.
Karma in Lovina life
Since the Dutch colonial era until the time of independence, Singaraja known as the capital city. This status is firmly established as a center of government and trade activity. But such conditions suddenly change. In the early 1960s, Singaraja was no longer the capital, being replaced by Denpasar, which later became the capital of the province of Bali. The result is clear, development and trade activities have fallen sharply in Singaraja, and in the north of Bali in general. It takes years to revive normal conditions in North Bali.
Lovina is a blessing to the community
Lovina who has since been rejected, not recognized, doubted, suspected. But now, Lovina has brought blessings to many people. Dream of Anak Agung Panji Tisna since 1953, has been realized. The historic Lovina shaped Lovina Beach Hotel is still there and maintained by Anak Agung Ngurah Sentanu until now. Meaning “Lovina”. “Love” and “Ina” which translates as Love Indonesia, do not fit in the context of Panji Tisna. The term “INA” is an abbreviation for the contingent or entourage of Indonesian athletes for the 1963 Asian Games. Meanwhile, Lovina was founded in 1953. According to Panji Tisna, Lovina has a philosophical meaning, a mixture of two syllables “Love” and “Ina”. The word “Love” from English means sincere love and “Ina” from Balinese or regional language meaning “mother”. According to the initiator, Anak Agung Panji Tisna, the meaning of “Lovina” is “Mother Love” or its noble meaning is “Love Mother Earth”.
