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 to Baha Village is dominated by workers and the traditional farming community, who own wide rice fields, and by the "Subak" organization that mainly functions to regulate water distribution for irrigation. The uniformity of the typical entrance gates of the family compounds combines with the traditional housing structure present a charming appearance for the village. The workers and the traditional farmers are the major population in Baha. The uniqueness of this traditional village is the uniformity of the entrance gates of the family compounds combines with the traditional housing structure, which portrays a fascinating appearance for the village. Then, proceed to Bedugul, enjoys mild mountain weather due to its location at an altitude of about 1,500 meters (4,900 ft) above the sea level. Major sites in Bedugul are the Ulun Danu Temple or Pura Bratan, is a major Shivaite and water temple in Bali. Water temples serve the entire region in the outflow area; downstream there are many smaller water temples that are specific to each irrigation association (subak). Lake Bratan is known as the Lake of Holy Mountain due to the fertility of this area.
