What You Can Expect
In the fertile volcanic foothills of Batukaru Mountains you'll see an abundance of tropical fruits, spices, vegetables and flowers. It is no wonder that the community here is considered Bali's farming elite. For the Balinese, cultivation of land is a creative art and a communal effort, and the people of Jatiluwih have created a true masterpiece - an endless and intricate jigsaw of finely curved rice terraces in brilliant shades of green, with glistening waters, so soothing to the eye.
Then, travelling through thick tropical forest beneath Mount Batukaru you'll reach the remote Temple of Luhur.For Balinese Hindu's, this site has special mystical powers and only the Besakih Temple is more sacred - an ideal spot to meditate! There is also a 'rest stop' at a local restaurant (meals and drinks not included).
The temple was, well just like the other 20000 temples in Bali but much larger than most. Stopping off at arts and crafts manufacturers was good. The Luwak coffe and local coffee sampling was great. Rp 50000 for a cup of the worlds best coffee was a bargain for the coffee conesur.
We had a wonderful day. Recommend it to anyone. Certainly worth the money and we were really looked after.
Tour was fantastic and our extremely helpful and friendly. Highly recommend
Great half day tour. On our trip we were the only couple so had our own private tour. It was great to learn about the culture from a local and expand our knowledge. Gus was a great tour guide and the locations visited were stunning.
What a great tour! We were six friends traveling together and Rody our guide was incredible!!! We went to the temple and the rice fields - we even had time to stop and meditate in the Pura Luhur Batukaru Temple - any time we wanted to stop and take pictures he was so accommodating. He took us to a really nice restaurant overlooking the rice fields and we thoroughly enjoyed out day. I would absolutely recommend Viator and this tour.
WE ALL ENJOYED THIS TOUR AND WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE
This quite an amazing tour. Bali is so beautiful. The tour guide was great, Radiawan is his name. He is such a pleasing person. He was on time at the hotel. The ride to the temple was beautiful. We saw all the rice terraces. The vegetation is so green and lively. We went to the temple Pura Luhur from the 11th century.
This temple is in the middle of the jungle. Not many toursit visit the temple, so you have a very peaceful tour.
There was only two other groups, so we had the temple for ourselves. You could listen the birds sing and it was full of butterflies. It was a very memorable tour. The tour guide, let us meditate and sit on the altar for 15 minutes. It was wonderful. Radi went out of his way to please us. It was such a rewarding experience. It is a beautiful ride
The tour guide Rodney and the driver Su were very helpful. This was probably the best tour of my long Asia Asia trip. The temple was unique in that the visit was all about the temple ( no hawking of.many trinkets by local vendors), meditation, enchanting history along with side trips to beautiful rice fields, fine lunch across the street from a major rice field, visiting an actively habitated lovely compound, visit to a batik factory and shop. Wonderful local flavor.
This was an excellent sightseeing, art and cultural tour. The guide was very knowledgeable.
Our tour of Bali was just wonderful. This was our first time using Viator tour service and we were quite please. They were on time for pick up and our guide Arya was very good, he spoke very good English and he did a super job explaining about the,people, culture and showing us around. We would use Viator again for our next trips anytime.
