On the territory of the forest there are three ancient temples – Pura Dalem Agung, Pura Benji and Pura Prajapati. To enter the temples you must wear traditional sarongs, these are issued on site.
Tegallalang rice terraces
This is a kind of business card of the island. The rice terraces are steps on the slopes of the hills, equipped with a unique irrigation system. The terraces were built over 1000 years ago. At that time, the system of canals bringing water to the fields was an ingenious technical invention. But even today it has not lost its relevance and is still used.
The landscape on the terraces changes according to the rice growing cycle. Only three months pass from sowing to harvest. When the terraces are filled with water, they resemble giant mirrors. Then rice sprouts are planted in it, and the steps gradually become emerald green. When the ears ripen, they turn yellow. After harvesting, ducks are released here to collect the remaining grains, pests and slugs. When the land on the terraces is plowed, they turn gray-brown. This allows the terraces to be visited at different times of the year – and meet you in a new look every time. By the way, this is a great place to take photos. Near the terraces there are several cafes that serve a special coconut drink or a cup of local coffee. As a souvenir of your visit, you can buy a hat made of coconut leaves and traditional basketry.
This culture has been cultivated on the island for several decades, coffee has become a traditional drink of the locals. Basically, here grows the variety Robusta, which is less susceptible to disease and not too whimsical. Aristocratic Arabica is also grown in Bali, but in smaller quantities. During a visit to a coffee plantation you can see how real coffee grows, how it is harvested, dried, cleaned and roasted. All production steps are carried out manually without the use of machines. If you like, you can even try roasting or hulling coffee beans yourself. Also living on the farm are Musangs – the “producers” of the most expensive coffee in the world, Kopi Luwak
. You can not only look at them, but also feed them. At the end of the tour there is always a tasting of different types of coffee and tea. Then you will be offered to buy something in a local store. They sell not only coffee, but also various spices, herbal blends.
