Discover the beautiful rural countryside of West Bali through this full day tour, which takes you upland to the majestic Mount Batukaru. The second highest mountain on the island, Mount Batukaru, an extinct volcano now covered in lush vegetation and cool forests, overlooks the flowing green paddy valleys and offers one of the most gorgeous landscapes in Bali. Batukaru is also home to a significant temple of the same name.
Batukaru is important among the Balinese Hindus, and all local temples bear a shrine dedicated to the deities that hold the mountain as their abode. The journey includes a scenic lunch stop served with spectacular views over Jatiluwih, a region with the largest and most beautiful expanses of terraced rice fields on the island. A visit to a traditional Balinese house compound brings an insightful conclusion to the tour.
Highlights of this tour include:
