Visiting temples

Bali is known as the "Island of a Thousand Temples" and visiting the local shrines will give you a closer look at its culture and rich history. According to local residents, despite the external similarity, there are no two absolutely identical Balinese temples, and in each of them an attentive tourist will be able to find its own unique features. Located on the slopes of mountains or volcanoes, on the water or within the boundaries of populated areas, Balinese temples (pura) attract many travelers. Among the most popular religious buildings among tourists in Bali, it is worth highlighting the temples of Besakih and Tanah Lot, Taman Ayun and Pura Oolong, also Oolong Yah Beratan.


Visit the Royal Palace (Ubud Palace or Puri Saren Agung)

The palace, located in the center of Ubud and surrounded by lush gardens, served as the official residence of the royal family. And today it is one of the main historical monuments of Bali. In the evenings, traditional Balinese dance performances are held here.


Visit the monkey sanctuary

Sacred Monkey Forest in Ubud, also known as Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary is not only a protected area, but also a Hindu temple complex. The forest contains more than 100 species of trees and is home to several hundred macaques that eagerly interact with tourists. When going for a walk in the forest, you should keep in mind that this interaction is not always safe and can end in petty theft of personal items from unwary visitors, for example, food or sunglasses, and even monkey bites.


Sekumpul Waterfalls

Two hidden waterfalls, located a few meters from each other in the village of the same name, attract tourists with their beauty and peaceful atmosphere. One of the waterfalls boasts consistently clear water that remains clear even during the rainy season.

Vivid impressions and no less vivid photos will be a reward for everyone who decides to visit this attractive natural attraction.


Trekking and active walks

Fans of active recreation with appropriate physical fitness can climb Mount Batur or Mount Agung and admire the stunning sunrise and impressive views of the surrounding area from the peaks.

In addition, local tour organizers offer energetic tourists to walk through the rainforests of Mount Batukaru, hike through rice fields, visit a unique temple located on the top of the jungle-covered Mount Abang, explore the nature of the twin lakes Buyan and Tamblingan, as well as a number of other unforgettable experiences, including trips to secret waterfalls and hikes through tropical forests and mountains.

There are also combined tours, for example, a hike to Mount Batur combined with rafting on the Ayung River in Ubud. The cost of this tour is from 80 US dollars per person.



Excursions that include canyoning are another type of leisure activity for brave outdoor adventurers. Excursions include visiting waterfalls and gorges, sliding down natural water slides, abseiling, jumping safely into natural pools and much more. The adventure can be captured on a GoPro camera.

If you do not have outstanding physical characteristics, but want to get an adrenaline rush, do not be upset and deny yourself the pleasure. After all, excursions are designed for tourists with a wide range of training levels, including beginners, as well as those who do not have swimming skills.

The estimated cost of the adventure tour is 125-200 US dollars per person, depending on the complexity and program of the tour.
