Bakas village, which is located approximately 3 km from the town of Banjarangkan sub-district to the north, during the kingdom era was once used as a defense area for the Klungkung Kingdom to fend off enemies who came from the Bangli area. Besides that, Bakas was once a contested area, and was once controlled by the kingdom of Gianyar. But not too long ago it was finally re-controlled by the Klungkung kingdom and until now it has become the territory of Klungkung Regency. Until now, the history of Bakas' birth has not been found in the chronicle or other historical data. Based on the information and information collected, Bakas Village is an old village that was built a long time ago, together with a group of people who were formerly given the name "Bhala Akas" which means revelation or the word of Sang Hyang Tohlangkir or Mahadewa who resides on Mount Agung.
Bakas Village has several interesting tourist attractions to visit, including:
