Bali: Alternative Temples Small Group Tour

1. Bali: Alternative Temples Small Group Tour

Not keen on the swarming crowds at Bali's main temples? Visit temples that are just as beautiful off the beaten track, meaning fewer tourists, more charm, and the tranquility you seek on this magical island.  Begin at the Kerta Gosa Pavilion in Klung Kung. The intact justice court building formerly used by the high king of Bali will give you some idea of the power and grandeur of the Balinese monarchs before the Dutch arrived. Goa Lawah Temple is up next. Also known as Bat Cave, its complex is built over a hilly outcrop home to thousands of bats and a giant snake king per local legend. Make a stop at Bukit Jambul, known for its panoramic views of the rice terraces. As you must be peckish by now, your guide will slow the pace down for a lunch overlooking Mt. Agung.  Continue your tour to Besakih Temple, Bali's thousand-year-old Mother Temple, perched 1,000 meters high on the southwestern slopes of Mount Agung. It is meant to be the island's largest holy site divided into three main complexes, each dedicated to the Hindu trinity. The last of the temples, Kehen Temple, is a multi-level temple on a hill home to a great Banyan Tree. An untouched gem, it requires a bit of a hike to get to the well-preserved natural sanctuary. Finally, the trip ends with a visit to Penglipuran Traditional Village, a traditional countryside community in the highlands.

Then, check in to your accommodation in Kintamani and have a good rest before your hike starts the next day. Wake up at 3:30 AM, fuelled with breakfast and then head to Mount Batur. During the ascent, you’ll trek along a 3-kilometer long trail. The trail is of moderate difficulty and passes through lush tropical jungles. On reaching the top, enjoy breakfast cooked by steam from the volcano and sip hot tea or coffee at your leisure while watching the magical sunrise.

An extraordinary moment, a magnificent day thanks to our Dharma guide. We had our eyes full! Just unforgettable and such magnificent landscapes. We were also able to observe the creation of kopi luwak coffee and taste it! Thanks again to Dharma for these explanations and anecdotes. I strongly recommend this activity you will not regret.

Incredible experience! From pick up to drop off, the tour was amazing and our tour guide was so informative and friendly (and super patient!) Highly recommended!

This tour was amazing! Highly recommended this if you're visiting Bali. Be sure and ask for Tude, he was great and knew all the history of Bali.

This experience was a feast for the nature hungry eye. Only made better by our guide (Made aka number 2)!

The guide was very friendly and told me a lot about the Balinese culture during the trip. Recommended!
