We’ll stop mid-morning for some refreshing local coffee, and there’s a chance to sample some local coconuts too. While biking along narrow backroads, the Balinese tend to greet you warmly. Most villages have a sacred temple, and you’ll usually catch a glimpse of a ceremony or two. Our friendly guide will help explain the significance of the daily offerings that villagers lay out. 

    Enjoy your first lunch with the Balinese cuisine – Nasi Campur. The view of the rice fields gives an excellent opportunity to spot the native birds of the area. Continue riding toward your hotel for check-in.

    After a short transfer from the hotel to Kaura community for a walk through lush forests and weaving through clusters of homes where bantam chickens forage and children play.
    The waterfall is a stunning site and the pool formed at its base is a great spot to cool off after the walk. Sitting next to a giant statue of Brahama, the waterfall is a spiritual place for local Balinese. This is a great way to stretch the legs, get the heart pumping, and get well off the beaten path with experienced hiking guides from the Manggis community.
    Then, we will proceed to a water purification ceremony with the holy water of the waterfall site. These traditional rituals are performed to cleanse, purify, and bless the water, and usually include incense, flowers, and candles. The guide will help explain the symbolism.
