Getting to Kintamani in Bali
From Ubud: Both tourist and local buses run daily between Kintamani and Ubud in Central Bali; the journey takes just under an hour. Book your ticket from one of the many travel agencies in Ubud the day before.
From Denpasar: If going straight to Kintamani from the airport in Denpasar, first get a ride to the central Batubulan bemo/minibus terminal. Minibuses leave sporadically when full to Kintamani; Local bemos make dozens of stops along the way and require a lot of patience!
