Bali Escapade – Part III

Continuation from Part II

Jatiluih is one of the main highlights of my entire trip. I really loved this place a lot!

Not very far from Tabanan (where Batukaru temple is located) lies Jatiluih, which means really marvelous. It offers superb view of rice terraces (even better than Tegalalang).

It wasn’t the best time to visit Jatiluih as the cultivation season has just begun but the views were still to die for!

As Bagus drove alongside Jatiluih, we made several stops to get down and closer to the terraces.

We moved on to the northern side of Bali and stopped at Bedugul for lunch. It was a simple lunch by the lake of Bratan, thereafter we stopped briefly at the market nearby to see what’s good to buy.

The next stop was Pura Ulun Danu, some sort like temple in the garden and by the lake. It’s beautiful and picturesque, we took a lot of photos too!

We continued our journey up north but not before we stopped briefly at mountain top in Munduk for a view of lake Buyan and Tamblingan.

After taking pics, Bagus and Dena continued to Gitgit where we visited the 35m tall waterfall. It was still a sight to behold although I’ve seen more spectacular waterfalls.

After the visit, we continued to Kalibukbuk town and checked in to our hotel of the day, Sunari Villas and Spa Resort.

Since the resort is just beside Lovina beach, I managed to take a walk along the beach to capture some interesting pics.

The night ended early after our dinner at Kalibukbuk town to prepare for the most interesting activity of the trip.

Of course, that will be on the next post! Heh!
