Tenganan is a walled mountain village. It is the ancestral home of the Bali Aga people, and even today retains a pre-Hindu culture. The settlement features the most unusual layout on Bali, with two identical living compounds arranged in rows and streets that run the length of the village. It is here that you will find the unique Kamben Grinsing (flaming cloth), which the villagers believe protects its wearer from evil. Learn firsthand the legend of the fabric from one of the village artisans.

Close to Tenganan, you will visit Taman Ujung Palace. This water palace is a former palace in Karangasem Regency and the complex consists of various large pools and historic structures set against a backdrop of Mount Agung and the eastern shoreline.

Finally, your journey leads through Bungaya for a magnificent view of the island's terraced rice fields.


Lunch is included. Travel time to Tenganan is approximately two hours each way. Wear comfortable walking shoes.
