Trunyan Village is located on the east side of Mount Batur about 2 hours north of Denpasar.

Trunyan is one of the oldest villages in Bali, and one of the more unique experiences here. It’s known for its graveyard of open burials (very unique compared to traditional cremation). Villagers simply place the body of the deceased under the Taru Menyan, a fragrant tree that helps neutralize odors from decomposing corpses. This is where the name “Trunyan“ originated.

About ten corpses occupy Trunyan Village. Once full, older dead are replaced with newer and their bones placed with others who were moved. Newer dead are then covered with bamboo cages and left to rest. Only people who died of natural causes come to this graveyard (i.e. not by accident, murder, or suicide).

If Trunyan Cemetery is too “spooky” for you, you can enjoy Trunyan Hill nearby (one hour walking). Here, you enjoy the sunrise and beautiful panoramic views of Batur Lake and Mountain.

There are two ways to reach Trunyan Village. One is by boat over Lake Batur; the other, by driving its perimeter by car. The main cemetery, however, can only be reach by water.
