This Jatiluwih cycling tour explores the beautiful inland area of north Bali around Mount Batukaru. You’ll see the stunning Jatiluwih rice terraces with time to appreciate them. A Jatiluwih cycling tour is also a great way to immerse yourself in the real Bali, and experience rural Balinese life and culture up close.
|Type||Full Day – Adventure/Active|
EXPLORE… inland Bali up close and personal on a 2.5 to 3 hour cycling tour through inland Bali, starting from the base of Mount Batukaru around mid-morning.
ENJOY…a mostly downhill route, passing through villages and by coffee, cacao and vanilla plantations. The highlight is the stunning rice terraces of Jatiluwih. In Bali, land cultivation is both a creative art and a communal effort. Jatiluwih is one of Bali’s finest examples of this, where the local community has created a masterpiece: an endless and intricate jigsaw of finely curved rice terraces in brilliant shades of green.
LUNCH…at a restaurant at the mountain village of Jatiluwih, a UNESCO nominated world heritage site. In Mount Batukaru’s fertile volcanic foothills, you’ll see an abundance of tropical fruit, spices, coffee, vegetables, and flowers. It is no wonder that the community here is considered Bali’s farming elite.
ENGAGE…with locals. Learn how rice is cultivated and harvested by local farmers. Stop at your leisure for photos and take in the breathtaking views.
REJUVENATE… after your Jatiluwih cycling tour at the Yeh Panas Hot Springs. Located on the slopes of Mount Batukaru at the village of Penatahan, this complex of pools is pumped with naturally hot and healing mineral water from deep within the earth. A perfect finish to an active cycling adventure!
CREATE…your perfect tour. Some people maximise their holiday time by incorporating an active adventure as part of a transfer.
For instance, if you were heading north for an overnight stay in Lovina to go dolphin watching, you could do a Jatiluwih cycling tour ‘mid transfer’. You’d arrive later at Lovina, but instead of a day of your holiday being taken up solely by a transfer, you’ll have enjoyed an active adventure, and still reach Lovina in time for dinner.
