Do you love nature? Then you'll love Bali too! This land features some of the world's most beautiful natural wonders and sites that'll leave anyone speechless.
West Bali National Park
West Bali National Park is a conservation area covering over 19,000 hectares. This forested region makes up most of central-western Bali. The park features unique ecosystems that are also the original habitat of the rare Bali Starling. Onsite you will encounter open savannahs, dense rainforests, mangrove swamps and coral reefs. The park also includes the small island Pulau Menjangan, also referred to as "Deer Island." As well as offering breathtaking white-sand beaches, the island is perfect for those seeking to dive and snorkel in pristine waters whilst enjoying the National Park's views.
Campuhan Ridge Walk
Campuhan Ridge Walk is a free and easy nature walk in Ubud. It is a great retreat from the more hectic southern parts of the island. The hike lets you enjoy cool fresh air and probably the most gorgeous hillside vista in the region. A small bridge over the revered Campuhan River leads to the majestic Pura Gunung Lebah temple complex. There are signs before the temple that clearly indicate the directions to follow along the route. The walk borders the eastern walls of the temple. A few hundred meters and up the slopes from the temple, the view widens to reveal the vast hills that make up the valley hinterland. The best time to enjoy the Campuhan Ridge Walk is early morning and late afternoon. At this time the temperature is cool and the skies show their best hues during sunrise and sunset.
The Jatiluwih Rice Terraces is located in the heart of Tabanan Regency. They are the best example of Bali's outstanding picturesque rice fields. This place has also been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2012. Jatiluwih, in Balinese means 'Beautiful Teak' in English. Here, you'll encounter vast expanses of terraced, green rice paddies stepped along an entire mountain, from its peak to where its foot meets the sea. Besides its agricultural prominence, this panoramic landscape has also established itself as a tourist destination and is among the top 10 visited places on the island.
Mount Batukaru is a volcano that is both the highest peak in the Bedugul volcanic area and the second highest mountain in Bali. Its distinctive landscape makes it Bali's most unique rainforest mountain trek. Its protected rainforest and pristine natural setting are definitely worth visiting. Mount Batukaru is ideal for visitors who prefer to avoid the 'touristy' areas and attractions. This place is a perfect combination of culture, nature and spectacular views. What's more, this hidden spot isn't known to many tourists.
