Ubud Region Scenic Private Day Tour
What comes to your mind when you think about Ubud?
Many people remember the Julia Roberts movie – Eat Pray Love. We think of natural beauty, warm people, and delicious local food.
Ubud is a well-known a Bali photographic region as well as being the heart of artistic expression.
Located amongst lush rice paddies and steep ravines in the central foothills of the Gianyar regency, it’s a site to behold.
This village has long been promoted as an arts and culture centre; it has developed a large tourism industry over the years.
According to ancient history, during the 8th century there was a Hindu priest named Rsi Markendeya. Rsi who built a temple named Pura Gunung Lebah. His motivation was surely the amazing landscape in that region.
We will visit the following areas in our air-conditioned private vehicle:
- Campuhan Ridge Walk
- Monkey Forest Ubud
- Tegenungan Waterfall
- Tegallalang Rices Terraces
Today’s journey will start with a short walk known as the Campuhan Ridge Walk. The locals call it Bukit Suci Gunung Lebah or Gunung Lebah Holy Hill. This walk samples all the tropical inner Bali along a relatively short, paved walkway. Take some time out to meditate or grab some amazing photos in this picturesque setting.
After your relaxing walk we will venture to the Sacred Monkey Sanctuary, a home to the long- tailed monkeys. There are over 350 monkey residents in this sanctuary. The Ubud Monkey Forest is also praised for its successful conservation efforts. The sacred forest hosts many research studies surrounding the monkey’s health, diet, and breeding habits. You can see these playful primates in their natural habitat, swinging through canopies, and feeding on bananas. The forest has several ancient temples with impressive moss-covered guardian statues.
Other popular sites in the sanctuary include the 14th-century Pura Dalem Agung Padang Tegal and Pura Prajapati, which are dedicated to village funerals. Relics and statues can be found under the dense foliage. With little sunlight penetrating this canopy, the result is a mysterious and ancient vibe. Banyan tree roots hanging over shadowy dragon staircases offer exotic photo opportunities.
No tour of Bali is complete without the inclusion of one of our magnificent waterfalls. We have chosen the Tegenungan Waterfall for you. This waterfall is in the village of Tegenungan Kemenuh on the Patanu River.
From the trail head you can take a great photograph of the waterfall from the viewing platform.
After a short walk along the bamboo railed track, you will arrive at the base of the waterfall. Go for a paddle, take some great pics, and sit for a moment and enjoy the impressive site before you.
Within a short distance from the here is Tegallalang an area which has very rich soil. In earlier days farmers planted many kinds of medicinal plants or as Balinese call them “UBAD”, overtime the region therefore became named Ubud.
While in Tegallalang you will have an opportunity to see some remarkable views of the terraced rices fields.
Alongside the rices fields we have a special free coffee tasting for you to do. Every tourist in Bali should do this at least once to understand the coffee specialities that have developed over time with the locally cultivated coffee and hear the story of the Luwak.
If you are feeling adventurous, we have included a ride on the giant swing. This swing offers a great view of the region as well as an opportunity to take some memorable photographs.
We can give you many more options to make this tour even more outstanding with professional photographer and drone footage.
Your day can start when you are ready, we suggest earlier than later to catch the right amount of light for the photographs and beat the throng of tourists.
