Tirtagangga and East Bali Trekking

Your day starts with a 2.5-hour downhill trek to the Tenganan Pagringsingan village. Your guide will show you around and explain how traditional life works. Only people born in the village can live here and be full members of the community, which has existed in this part of Bali dating back to at least the 13th century.

Villagers follow a strict set of rules when it comes to the wildlife surrounding their village — for example, a member cannot chop down a tree without permission from the community. From the village, you’ll have tremendous view of the mountain and farmers working in the rice fields.

Next, you’ll take a short walk through the rainforest to get to a temple, followed by a lunch break at a local restaurant with stunning views. This restaurant works closely with the local farmers to get their ingredients. The restaurant staff cooks using authentically Balinese cooking methods, including a wood-fired stove, which adds another dimension to the flavors.

After lunch you’ll take a short drive to the scenic village of Kastala, and then continue to the Tirtagangga Water Palace, the last stop on the tour. It dates back to the 20th century, but had to be lovingly restored after an eruption from Mount Agung mostly destroyed it. The name of the palace translates to “Water from the Ganges River,” which is a sacred river for Hindus. This temple is famed for its beautiful grounds, which include a courtyard with an eleven-tiered fountain. Wander through the maze of tranquil pools and tropical gardens before starting the return trip.
