most fertile rice fields/terraces on the island for as far
as the eye can see. 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
