Tulamben is one of the best places for diving in snorkelling in Bali. In the early morning, an optional dive or snorkelling adventure can be arranged through the hotel. The most famous sight here is the USAT Liberty Shipwreck from WW2.
The wreck lies a mere 30m offshore, and almost parallel to the beach. The shallowest part of the wreck where it touches the sand slope is at 5-10m while average depth along the middle is 16-20m. The lower edge of the wreck, the furthest down the slope, is 20-28m at high tide. The wreck is pretty broken up but you can still see the guns, toilets, boilers, anchor chain, etc. You can also snorkel on the wreck as the highest point of the stern is only 3m below the surface.
Around 9 am we pack up and go again. Today we transfer backup with our support vehicle to the higher regions of the island, the volcanic core of the island. From the foot of Mount Abang, we will start riding towards the coast. Today's ride is more downhill orientated but nothing too technical and lots of fun. The ride starts with an amazing 12km run where we have a few different tracks in the area.
After the first run, we can shuttle back up and ride another one. We then continue through local forest and rice paddy fields towards the coast.

OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE
We hope everyone is staying as healthy as possible in the current global pandemic situation.
Infinity is scheduled to reopen on 2020 September 01. We realize the beginning will be very slow but we are eager to get things started again. We do have decided considering the current situation that until further notice we will run all of our short breaks and longer tour bookings as private departures. So each booking will have their own private guide, driver, and minivan (min 2 pax). Our crews will also take a COVID rapid test one or two days before the start of each tour.
Of course, we understand the uncertainty of the situation and therefore we are offering all of our guests that book on a multiple-day tour with us in 2020 and 2021 the option to reschedule to a later date if needed and a two-year future travel credit for the entire amount of any deposit or full payments that have been made to us. Please note that the cancelation and rescheduling must come in thirty days before the departure date of your tour.
Despite the difficulties ahead, one day this will eventually be over, and we hope all of you will be coming back, sooner or later. When this happens, we are ready for you!
We wish everyone the best during these uncertain times.
Stay safe and kind regards,
Team Infinity Mountainbiking
REVIEW ABOUT THIS TRIP
I joined Infinity Mountainbiking for an adventure around Bali this summer. I chose the Bali Bootcamp which is a 5 day trip riding up, down, on volcanoes, in the jungle, though rice patties and little villages. It was an adrenaline rush combined with stays in beautiful high standard hotels in remote places. A perfect combination for those who want action and as well as to re energize. This journey takes you far away from everyday stress and thoughts. The guide Suandy was so nice, teaching us a lot about Balinese culture, ecology and nature as he brought us safely through the tracks. I recommend this trip to anyone who has some experience with mountainbiking.
