Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Escape from the beaches of Bali for the island's culturally rich interior, as you explore the island's small village life, learning about Balinese religious and cultural traditions along the way. If you're hoping to explore a different side of Bali beyond the surf and the sand, this personalized, small-group visit is a perfect chance to discover a different side of life in this Indonesian paradise.

Start your excursion with a pickup from your hotel around 30 to 60 minutes before the tour start time at 8:30am, continuing north past the busy urban area of Denpasar. Watch as the city life recedes behind you, transitioning to lush green farm fields, swaying palm trees and distant mountains. 

Arrive in the Balinese foothills of the Batukaru Mountains, where you'll first have the chance to learn about the island's one-of-a-kind farming practices. The area's fertile volcanic soil nourishes a variety of crops, including spices, vegetables, flowers and tropical fruits. Perhaps most interesting are the intricately-terraced rice paddies, which the local community of Jatiluwih have carved into the area's hillsides. These striking agricultural sites are both pleasing to the eye and useful to the community, which lives off the food and income they provide. 

Continue your exploration of Bali's interior with a short walk through the dense forest near Mount Batukaru, heading towards the Pura Luhur Batukaru Temple. This beautiful temple complex is among the holiest of sites on the island for Bali's Hindu population. Take time to wander this unique monument with your guide, stopping to absorb the quiet energy of its beautiful setting and unique architecture.

Before returning you'll have time to stop by a local restaurant for a rest stop, where you can purchase food and drinks at your own expense. Then finish your excursion with drop-off back at your Bali hotel.

I was on my own for this trip so it was a very small group.I went on four trips during my stay in Bali and this was the only won which had a separate guide and driver.The guide was extremely knowledgeable if a little aloof.The temple is well worth seeing.

This tour could have been compressed to 5 hours..instead, nearly 2 hours was spent visiting 4 craft houses that were not appealing or part of the advertised tour. Two places would have been sufficient silversmith and batik...nut beware, both are overpriced. As well, the restaurant chosen by the tour operator, while it had a great view of the rice fields, had limited food choices. When we arrived at 1PM, the buffet lunch had too little choices and not much food left on the trays..yet we were still billed Rp 400,000. it would have been better to be brought to a central area and allowed to choose your own place for lunch. Or packed our own. Very disappointed in this one.

Mandara (Tour Guide) was knowledgeable but was too serious throughout the trip. Driver was pleasant and the van was clean. Despite the rainy weather- we all enjoyed. Highlight was the stop in shopping area. The restaurant in the Rice Terrace served cold food and it didn't look too clean :(

The temple was, well just like the other 20000 temples in Bali but much larger than most. Stopping off at arts and crafts manufacturers was good. The Luwak coffe and local coffee sampling was great. Rp 50000 for a cup of the worlds best coffee was a bargain for the coffee conesur.

This is an excellent half day trip. The temple was very tranquil. Would recommend to anyone wanting to get out of the central area for a few hours.
