Bali is undoubtedly that place of eternal bliss far from the dense and polluted capital city of Jakarta, Indonesia. It is a tropical paradise with something to offer for everyone. Whether you are honeymooners or a large family group on vacation, Bali has got your back.
So here goes the list of fun and adventurous things you could do in Bali:
It’s time to get those derby race car helmets out and put on your life vest, it’s time to have some water adventure. The best place to do that is the Ayung River, which runs near Ubud. As you would expect, the water is quite foamy, running from nearby waterfalls and be ready for the sudden waterfall. This is nature's rollercoaster ride, and you are bound for an adventure of a lifetime.
Sunrise beside a volcano:
If waking up isn’t a problem, then head to Mount Batur. Over there, you will experience the most magical morning ever. There is no need to put sunscreen in your face because you would later enjoy a relaxing dip in the hot springs on the Caldera lake. If you are a coffee drinker, then you must try the world-famous civet-cat coffee, also known as Kopi Luwak, in the local language.
Village trekking at Tenganan:
Trekking in Tenganan Village in East Bali is the site of one of the oldest civilizations. So this will certainly be a great way to experience the outdoors and the rich culture of the land. Not only you will witness the beautiful surroundings, but you will also find yourself among the very few places to see true artisan mastery. The village is famous for tie-dye clothes, also known as gringsing.
Island Tour by 4 Wheel Drive:
Nothing like getting to see the natural beauty of the island by boarding into a four-wheel-drive (traditionally jeep). You will be immersed in rice paddy fields as you drive through the stony gravel roads. If you like to see ancient stone quarries and high mountain peaks, then traveling in the rugged lane is definitely worth the adventure.
Climbing the Lempuyang Temple’s 1700 steps:
Okay, if you ever wanted to train like Sylvester Stallone in the movie Rocky, then head over to Bali because you will have your work cut out for you. Lempuyang Temple is one of the most well-known temples in Bali. The temple sits on an elevation, and there are seventeen thousand steps to reach the top. Watch out for wandering monkeys as there is a lot of them there as part of the temple’s heritage. The whole trek should take about two hours, depending on your stamina and speed. You will also get to see the stunning view of Mount Agung when you enter the temple gate, make sure you have your camera ready for that postcard Instagram snap.
