GRAY LINE TOURS BALI (seat-in coach)
- Beautiful Balinese riceterraces
- Ulun Danu floatingtemple
What to expect
Bottle-green rice terraces, stacked up in curvaceous shelves as far as the eye can see; lazy tides on black sandy beaches; birdsong and the smell of incense floating on the breeze. This tour will take you back to nature and show you Bali’s scenery in all its glory. The north of Bali is home to national parks, serene coastline and mountain ranges that hide holy lakes, springs and waterfalls. This is the garden of Bali, where traditional farming techniques have created some spectacular and picturesque views.
What you will do
First we take you to the most scenic areas of Pupuan and Antosari, where the morning sunlight is ideal for taking pictures of the unique rice terraces. After driving through the highlands where coffee, cacao and lots of different fruits are also grown, we descend to the north coast. Lovina Beach, the quiet and nice black sand beach area is our next stop. Here will be an opportunity for lunch. After a relaxation break we continue on our 230 km route, winding up the mountain with magnificent views on the way until we reach about 1,200 meters above sea level. Passing by Lake Buyan and Tamblingan allows you to view an area which is the habitat of many species of birds, trees and flowers unseen anywhere else on the island. We then stop at Bedugul to visit Lake Bratan, the “Lake of Holy Mountain”, and its floating temple called Ulun Danu. This holy site is dedicated to Dewi Danu, the goddess of water. A bit further on, we will make a stop at the local flower and fruit market for the opportunity to buy fresh and natural tropical fruits directly from the farmers. It’s a long day driving across Bali, but it is well worth it to discover the heart of Bali’s impressive natural beauty.
