Fully immerse yourself in the Indonesian culture and heritage by experiencing first-hand the way of life here. During the eight hour tour, you will learn about the art of painting, wood-carving and even gold and silver handcraft products. You will visit a rice plantation, an elephant cave and a Hindu temple that legend says the pool waters have healing powers.
We begin at the Village of Batubulan where you will be treated to a Barong Dance, an artistic blessing and narrative dance between good and evil. You will also be in awe of the idol creations.
Once known as a traditional Balinese village, Celuk Village has been modernized into a tourist attraction with its gold and silver treasures. Most everyone living here are professional crafters of jewelry, medals and cultural symbols.
The art of wood carving has been around for centuries and the people of Mas Village have become experts in the field. From entire tree carvings to small toys, these crafters use hand tools only. The time, effort and patience into each piece measures only by the devout love of the creator.
A stop at Batuan will show the Balinese style in the several galleries and art societies. Local artisans will also have their paintings and artwork on display. You may be invited to create your own masterpiece!
To fully appreciate the hard manual labor of our people, a visit to the Tegalalang Rice Terrace is a must. Situated on a cliff bank, the lush green plantation is mesmerizing.
A panoramic view of beautiful countryside and an active volcano awaits you at Kintamani.
A spring at a Hindu holy temple is said to have power to cure many ailments. This ancient pool with water fountains is found at Tirtha Empul Temple in the Tampaksiring Village.
Our last stop will be Goa Gajah, the elephant cave. It features a courtyard with rock-walled carvings, vendors, an actual cave and fountains. Don’t be fooled by the name as there are no real elephants here.
