The Northern Bali Experience

The Northern Bali
Experience

Like in the south, northern Bali still packs a few natural and cultural surprises. Regions such as
Munduk and Lovina pride themselves as being less-developed but being home to some
amazing natural and cultural sights in a more laid-back environment.

WHY THIS TOUR?

The sheer size of Indonesia’s main destination is often overlooked. Where the hustle and bustle is concentrated along the southern shores and inside the green heart near Ubud, the northern side paints a slightly different picture.

Customers who have chosen to leave the happening side of Bali behind and move towards a relatively calmer region around Munduk and Lovina can expect an exploration as unique as the country itself. A combination of soft-adventure, nature and local communities that thrive off agriculture are some of the less-trodden sides of the “Island of Gods”. Put on your adventure hat as will take care of the authentic side.

TRAIL ITINERARY

The Northern Bali Experience

09:00 - 18:00

In the morning, your guide and driver bring you in comfort to the starting point of mesmerizing two-hour trekking around Munduk. The region is known for its fertile land, thus finding various clove, cacao, and coffee plantations and orchards is almost a given. During the hike, we pass some natural phenomenons unique to the region, such as jungle waterfalls and stunning scenery.

The guides in this region are very proud to live and work among a plethora of natural resourced and will be able to explain what use these have in the daily lives of the northerners on Bali. Local markets aplenty, the one in Singaraja remains among our favourites (translated as ‘Lion City’), the former Dutch capital of the island. This laid-back town used to be a bustling centre of commerce and government, boulevards and old colonial residences of which various reminders are still visible. Another site to behold and not to be skipped is the hot spring at Banjar Village where guests will have the chance to take a dip before moving on. Nearby, the Brahma Vihara Arama, a quaint little Buddhist temple is worth a visit and a spot to take some great photos.

Before we continue exploring the region around Lovina, lunch will be served at a local restaurant where temple complexes us as the Beji Temple near the village of Sangsit stand out from the crowd. On the return journey to your hotel, a final stop visit the fabulous Git Git waterfall is bucket list material for all who have chosen Bali, located in the jungle, with a final drop of around 45 meters. This waterfall is very popular among locals as well as overseas visitors, and is another ‘must-see’ for any visitor to Bali and seeks out hidden treasures surrounded by lush tropical vegetation. The day comes to an end as explorers will drive back to your Munduk or Lovina hotel.
