First hike will be exploring the Campuhan Ridge. Campuhan is a sacred area and means ‘where two rivers meet’ - Sungai Wos and Sungai Agung. This river valley is a stunning area to walk around and do some exploring on the narrow paths.
After an hour hiking in Campuhan Ridge, we will continue to explore the scenic Tegalalang Rice field, located a quick 20 minutes away from Campuhan Ridge.This scenic drive will take you through the countryside of Ubud.
Tegalalang Rice Field is the most visited rice field in Bali. It is designed very beautifully with exquisite patterns located precisely on a hill bank. Witness the local farmers planting their rice in oblique areas complete with its traditional irrigation system called Subak. Enjoy the beauty and greenery of rice and its valley with coconut trees on it.
Bali Pulina located just 5 minutes driving from Tegalalang Rice Field will be the next stop on the trip. Bali Pulina is a hiden organic plantation where we can learn how Balinese Coffee is made. It is the best place for sampling the different coffee, tea, pure cocoa, and organic spices with a very beautiful rice field and valley setting. Bali Pulina also has the most unique coffee in world called Luwak Coffee.
If you haven't heard about it already, this is a rare type of coffee partially fermented by passing it through the digestive system of a civet cat. The cats eat only the best berries and the stones are collected after they pass through their digestive system. Legend has it that drinking Kopi Luwak is good for fertility.
The hike will be completed by a trip to Gunung Kawi , the 11th-century temple complex nestled among rice paddies and thick jungle in Tampaksiring, north-east of Ubud. To get there, you need to conquer some 270 steps, but it’s a special place well worth the effort. The huge shrines are carved into the cliffs at both sides of Pakerisan River connected by a stone bridge. It is also known as a World Heritage site by UNESCO 2012 located along Pekerisan River.
