1. Countryside Bike Ride to Golong Village and Lingsar Temple

Be picked up at 7.30 AM from your hotel in the Mataram or Senggigi area and depart for the starting point around a 1-hour drive away, where you will begin biking. Make a stop at a local villager, making unique traditional food from jackfruit and other local delicacies. Proceed to a handicraft village, to see how local people craft huge cow bells for racing through a traditional practice. Admire the rural landscape of rice fields and mountain areas and pass two different tribes, living together harmoniously in one village with the religious symbols of Hindu Temple and Mosque located in the same area. Continue exploring the area and arrive in a Hindu village, passing more rice fields on the way. At the next resting point, taste some local food and cool off at the Ranget Natural Spring to restore your energy for the coming stage. Bike along the river and rice fields and brace yourself for a 15-minute uphill ride before reaching the downhill trail at Praba Village and Endut village, passing local villagers, who make handicrafts from grass. The bike ride will end at Lingsar Temple, where a local guide will take you to explore the temple before you are transferred back to your hotel.
