CULTURAL UBUD - SOFT ADVENTURE

Tegalalang Rice fields - Tirta Empul - Cycle 4km - Gunung Kawi Temple - Cycle 15km - Goa Garba Temple - Cycle 10km - Lunch - Tegenungan Waterfall

This amazing day tour is designed for people who would like to experience many of the cultural highlights that Ubud and surroundings has to offer. We will visit 5 unique places combined with a beautiful 25 to 30km bicycle ride in between three of the sights. The riding is not difficult and goes along quiet back roads through local villages, rice paddy fields and amazing country side terrain.

We will pick you up in the South of Bali around 7am or 08am if you are staying in Ubud. First stop will be the amazing rice field terraces of Tegalalang. From here we transfer with our support vehicle to Tirta Empul. For more than a thousand years, Balinese worshipers have been drawn to Tirta Empul Temple whose sacred spring is said to have healing powers.

Our bicycle ride will start from here and it's only a short 5km to the next stop which is the Gunung Kawi Temple. This temple is one of Bali's oldest and largest ancient monuments. Gunung Kawi consists of 10 shrines cut out of the rock face in imitation of actual statues.

We will continue our bike ride with a beautiful 15km section to the Goa Garba Temple. Even to this day, Goa Garba is frequented as a place of meditation. It is estimated to have been built in the 12th century during the reign of King Jaya Pangus.

Here we start the final section of our bike ride, this can be another 5 to 10km long depending on how the group is doing. Next we will enjoy a fresh young coconut and if we are lucky we can witness the local farmer climb up the tree to cut down the coconuts.

Final stop of the day is the Tegenungan Waterfall which is unique for its lush green surroundings and heavy water flow, perfect for swimming and enjoying the fresh water after a full and amazing day out.
