Balinese Barong Dances
By Viator, September 2013
Breathtaking vistas and exotic adventures can be had in pursuit of authentic examples of the Barong. Many guided tours are tailored to balance a healthy appetite for the history and landscape of Bali with a yen for this exciting dance.
You’ll travel through picturesque rice paddy fields, traditional villages and an arresting volcanic landscape as you trek to Batubulan, known for its carved stone and ornate temples. Here you’ll be treated to a spirited performance of the Barong in the shadow of an active volcano (Mount Batur) that still has lava spewing from its peak.
After, carry on to Ubud, the artistic hub of Bali, where travelers can peruse a vibrant array of traditional Balinese handicrafts, culinary fare and trade goods.
