After a few days spent on South West coast of Bali, I headed off to do a 14 day tour with G adventure company. After having a group dinner and a night’s stay in Sanur, we soon headed off to explore the drive from Sanur to Munduk, which basically took us from the South East coast to the North of the island.
As we drove through the country we stopped at two iconic stops:
1. The Jatiluwih Rice Terraces – this is a UNESCO heritage site, and is one of the biggest areas of rice paddies within in Bali. It is surrounded by a beautiful landscape of both mountains and lush green forest. There is a 3 hour walk that you can do around the place. It’s truly stunning and awe-inspiring due to the scale of it. I would note however, that according to our guide, during dry season (the more people touristy season!) it is absolutely packed with people.
2. Lake Danu Bratan Temple – known as the temple floating on the lake and often an absolute must do on any Bali to do list. However, I found it a bit underwhelming and phenomenally busy. It was packed by both tourists and locals alike. It was beautiful but I think you can find other temples in Bali equally stunning and which are much less busy.
After visiting the temple we headed onwards to our homestay in Munduk for the night. We briefly stopped at a look out point for Lake Bratan which was unbelievable.
Happy adventuring and hope you enjoyed this piece.
