            Gunung Batukaru, sometimes spelled Batukau, is Bali's second-highest mountain at 2,276 m. It is the highest peak in the Bedugul volcanic area, but is dormant. Batukaru is worshipped by the Balinese, and has a temple, Pura Luhur Batukaru, devoted to it. Batukaru is relatively unpopular with climbers as it is covered in a dense forest which restricts views. Batukaru has a large crater, the largest on Bali, but this crater is open at the southern end, allowing the river Mawa to escape. It is this that gives it the name "Batukaru", which means "coconut shell" in Balinese.

            Gunung Batukaru, terkadang dieja Batukau, adalah gunung tertinggi kedua di Bali dengan ketinggian 2.276 m. Ini adalah puncak tertinggi di daerah vulkanik Bedugul, tetapi tidak aktif. Gunung Batukaru memiliki sebuah pura yang disembah oleh masyarakat Bali, yaitu Pura Luhur Batukaru. Batukaru relatif tidak populer di kalangan pendaki karena tertutup hutan lebat yang membatasi pandangan. Batukaru memiliki kawah besar, yang terbesar di Bali, tetapi kawah ini terbuka di ujung selatan, memungkinkan sungai Mawa mengalir. Inilah yang memberinya nama "Batukaru", yang berarti "batok kelapa" dalam bahasa Bali.
