Highlights of Munduk in North Bali

Given its verdant highland setting, Munduk is a popular destination for trekking past mountains, villages and waterfalls. Local guided tours are available. Besides learning about the local village life, culture and history, you can also opt to immerse yourself in the beautiful scenery on foot or by horseback, and explore the ancient lakeside temples on the banks of Tamblingan. You can also learn from up close the local agrarian way of life with chocolate and coffee harvests, as well as trying the local variety of durian in the nearby village of Gobleg.

Given its considerably remote and natural highland setting, don’t expect much modern facilities in Munduk. Dining options in Munduk are within the plantation resorts in the area. A particular highlight is found in the 4-star Munduk Moding Plantation. Local warungs and restaurants can be found along the Jalan Munduk-Wanagiri main road. Many of them make good use of their position, offering scenic mountain views. Nightlife in Munduk is non-existent and shopping options are also scarce, save for local minimarts selling daily household necessities. Nevertheless, Munduk is a great destination with a good selection of hotels. You can stay close to Bali’s nature and well away from the crowds up here.
