This lovely tour highlights what Balinese are so proud of, namely the beautiful rice terraces, which are mostly found in the mid-western part of the Island. For the majority of Balinese, agriculture is their livelihood. Villages are mainly found centered around or near the rice fields and every farmer who owns one or more rice plots or sawahs, is compelled to join a subak, an agricultural society that controls the distribution of irrigation water to its members. As you travel through these verdant farming communities, you'll no doubt agree that the cascading terraces of rice fields are the most striking features of the landscape.
Starting off from the pier, a leisurely drive takes you into the countryside, with photo stops along the way at the villages of Penatahan, Penebel and Mangesta. Along with enjoying the scenery of the rice fields, you will also see coffee and cacao plantations and a local vegetable farm. In these quiet communities, you'll find shaded pathways draped with lush vegetation, quaint thatch-roofed homes and herds of farm animals. In the distance, majestic mountains and verdant tropical rainforests provide a picturesque back-drop.
As you head back to the pier, your route will take you through the towns of Batunye, Carang-sari and Luk-Luk, where there will be additional photo stops made.
Please note: This tour includes a moderate amount of walking and a few steps. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Lightweight clothing, a hat, comfortable walking shoes and an umbrella are recommended.
