These rice terraces are undoubtedly the most beautiful in Bali and it's easy to see why. It is said to be the granary of the whole Bali. Perched on a high terraced slope, Jatiluwih deserves its name, “Truly Marvelous”. The cascading terraces of rice fields are the most striking features of the landscape, stretching from the foothill of Batukaru volcano to the south coast. The cool western uplands, overlooking half the island, offer magnificent views. It's hard to imagine that these rice fields are made by hand. They were created in this way because land became scarce and the Balinese were urged to divide land into several patches of land leading into a close organization among the farmers called the "subak". Arrive at lunchtime and enjoy a meal in the restaurant while soaking up the view, cool climate and fresh air.
So keep this in mind for your holiday, it is not the typical tourist outing here in Bali but its an adventure that you will I’m your will thoroughly enjoy and remember for a long time after.
