Starting in the small little village of Telamba, we ride through the ‘valley of oranges’ and Bali’s agriculture heartland. Take the small off-road path into the bamboo forest, where you get a chance to discover the different types of bamboo and their significant importance for the Balinese culture and religion.
Hidden behind lush vegetation stands the ancient Hindu temple from the 10th century. Its uniqueness has called many Balinese and pilgrimages to meditate and show devotion.
Next, we will be invited to the family compound of Ketut in the traditional village of Penempahan. Here, in this relaxed atmosphere where time feels like it comes to a standstill, we will learn about the significance of Bali’s version of feng shui and how the placement and construction of traditional Balinese
dwellings are determined.
At the UNESCO World Heritage site Tampaksiring we venture into fields of vibrant green and are introduced to the different aspects of rice farming.
The last part of our journey we cruise through beautiful small traditional villages and paddy fields.
Lunch will be served at cafe Agung Rai Museum of Art in the heart of Ubud
This journey offers an insight into a Bali that is not commonly seen, and allows you to experience the charming culture of rural Bali. A fantastic day out packed with education and fun!
