TRAIL ITINERARY

A Fascinating View of Eastern Bali

08:00 - 18:00

Your English-speaking guide will welcome you at the lobby of your resort along the sandy shores of southern Bali or your exquisitely designed resort in Ubud. The morning commences with entering the protected realms of the Kerta Gosa, also known as the Hall of Justice.

Constructed in the 18th century and located in the Klungkung Regency, Kerta Gosa is best known for its ornate murals and ceilings, its serene interior and well-maintained moats. Next on the itinerary is seeing how the fishermen of Kusamba have diversified their expertise of catching fresh seafood with winning salt from its playing grounds. The colourful outriggers lined up along the black sand shores are Instagram-worthy! The eastern coastline houses more than just fishing villages and picturesque ocean scenes disappearing at the horizon. The Pura Goa Lawah and its large colony of bats is one of these local landmarks that cannot be missed and is a must-see when cruising along the eastern shores.

After enjoying lunch at a local restaurant, we kick off the afternoon by entering the sacred grounds of the Taman Tirta Gangga. Better known as the Water Palace, the palace pools and ornamental ponds dominate the inner sanctum of this local pilgrimage site and still serves to date as a fascinating reminder of the Balinese rajah’s old days. Before calling it a day during this unforgettable day in the east, we make a stop at Tenganan Aga, an original Balinese village, a stronghold of ancient traditions. You can see the local women weave the famous “flaming” cloth, (“kamben gringsing”), which supposedly has the power to immunize the wearer against evil.

Before the sun has set, it is time to head back to your resort where you thank your guide and driver for this insight in the East.
