My name is Gede and I am originally from Penempahan Village, Tampaksiring (famous for our holy spring water temple). I am the son of the cultural leader of Penempahan Village and with this unique heritage and background, I would like to guide you to some of Bali’s hidden temples and monuments.

My family wishes to preserve and sustain this key element of Balinese history and believe to do this we must share its story with Balinese and tourists alike. We have worked with a leading world expert on sustainable tourism to ensure that our main impact is the preservation of the temples and that the surrounding villages directly benefit by your choice to visit.

Included in your tour fee is a donation that goes directly to the restoration of the temples, so we thank you in advance for your support. Come and explore the hidden Bali with me and I promise it will be something special...
