1. Tegal Jadi Village
Approximate Time: 10.00 - 10.45 AM
You will visit an amazing stone quarry. Time seems to have stood still for centuries. The people from Tegal Jadi cut the stone, know as paras, out of the cliff the same way as always, using traditional methods and techniques handed down for generations. The stones are rectangular shaped and weight about five kilograms each. They are used to build the temples and shrines of the island.
2. Tajen Sedahan – Malgunung Village
Approximate Time: 11.00 - 11.45 AM
At this stop you will be in typical family run farmhouse. It is very good example of the Balinese architectural concept, which has buildings, positioned in a courtyard accordingly to the family temple. Note the kitchen wall made out of bamboo and rendered with a mixture of mud and rice husk.
You will be taken for a short walk around the garden to discover some of the fruits and vegetables grown there – banana, mango, rambutan, salak, jackfruit, pineapple, tapioca and others. But look for vanilla, cloves as well as coffee and cocoa.
From our kitchen – tea, coffee and biscuits have been brought in the baskets on top of your car and will be served to you.
3. Rainforest Camp High On The Slopes Of Mount Batukaro
Approximate Time : 13.00 – 14.30 PM
Your vehicle climbs to over 900 meters and you are above the rice bowl of Jatiluwih. The Mountain air is cooler and scenery becomes different. You are entering the rainforest where giant bamboos and fern trees abound. Sacred Mount Batukaru reveals its splendor and a short stroll leads you to our rainforest camp. Built out of bamboos cut and assembled by local craftsmen. It sits in the middle of nowhere. You will be served a delicious Balinese Lunch with excellent wine. Some of the produce is straight out of the rain forest. A chance also to taste the famous Bali mountain coffee, cognac though remains French!
Small shrines to the divinities that inhabit the rainforest of sacred mount Batukaru, pure spring water running in suspended bamboos, but overall a tremendous stillness and a great sense of piece – The Soul of Bali.
4. Hot Spring At Banjar Belulang
Approximate Time: 15.00 – 15.30 PM
In the rice fields is a sacred hot spring where local people have always come to bath. The spring bubbles up at temperature of approximately 30 C or 86 F. You will enjoy beautiful scenery of manicured terraced paddy fields that continue to function efficiently on an age old. Unique irrigation system.
