During your Bali vacation, visit the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Jatiluwih Rice Terrace on a private day tour that also takes you to a temple on Lake Bratan, Munduk Waterfall, and other cultural and natural sites. A private vehicle with private driver and fuel is included, but all entrance fees to various attractions are at your own expense.
Your day tour begins with pickup at your accommodation in the morning by private vehicle and driver.
After an approximate 1.5-hour drive, arrive at the temple on Bratan Lake, encircled by cool temperatures and sometimes fog. Soak up the tranquil atmosphere as you admire the mountain backdrop and watch traditional boats on the lake, used by local fishermen. You'll also see Twin Lakes and then visit Munduk Waterfall around midday. Just south of Singaraja, the waterfall cascades into a small lagoon on a plantation of clove, coffee, cacao, and durian trees.
In the afternoon, visit the Jatiluwih Rice Terrace, the biggest rice field on Bali, located in the Tabanan regency. Part of the Subak (irrigation) UNESCO World Heritage site, this complex system combines spiritual practices, irrigation technology, and social organization. Each subak is made up of farmers whose fields are fed by the same water source and who meet to discuss how the water should be evenly distributed among the fields. The subak system is affiliated with the Tri Hita Karana Philosophy, a harmony of relationships between humans and god, humans and nature, and humans and humans.
Next, head to Taman Ayun Temple, a Royal Temple of the Mengwi Empire, located in the village of Mengwi. Admire its setting surrounded by the big fish pond, making it look like it is floating on the water.
Your tour ends in the evening with return to your accommodation.
