What To Expect

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.Â 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.Â 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.
