Bali's Highlands And Terraces
Bali's Highlands and Terraces
An authentic performance of the Barong Dance and a visit to the 'Elephant Cave' sanctuary sets a mystical tone for this Bali tour. Afterward, your professional guide will escort you to taste the famous Luwak coffee before reaching the breathtaking terrace views offered at Kintamani.
The mystical Barong is a lion-like creature who fights evil spirits led by Rangda. Colorfully dressed native dancers reenact and narrate Bali's ancient history. Following this festivity, you'll reach the elaborate stone carvings displayed at the "Elephant Cave."
While the main carving here is thought to resemble an elephant, many frightening creatures are carved into the facade of the cave to scare off evil spirits. Inside, you'll see the placid bathing pools that served members of the temple since the 14th century.
With your group's positive spirits flowing, you'll enjoy a traditional Balinese lunch, then sample some of the world's most costly coffee. Because production is aided by a portion of the beans coming from the Asian palm civet's digestive tract, Coffee Luwak sells at an astounding $350 US per pound.
Once recharged, you'll journey to the stunning terraces in the Kintamani village. The placid lakes and serene rice fields produce a blissful scene that seems to only improve when seen from the nearby, less-frequented Tegalalang Rice Terraces.
This enjoyable cultural trek is fit for the entire family. The relaxation and chance to taste the Coffee Luwak should not be missed. Book this Bali tour now for an incredible Indonesia experience at a low price.
