Rice-field Hiking & Farmer Work Discovery
Enjoy this easy and most enjoyable hike through paradise in Bali! Accompanied by a local guide you will step out into the Balinese countryside, hiking through rice terraces observing the work being done here, small dirtroads in between banana-, mango- and jackfruit trees. You will listen to the blue bird singing, eat mangosteen along the way, smell vanilla from the tree and observe the breathtaking panorama view of Mount Batukaru. By now you have learned everything about their Bali culture in this area. During a short rest in a local farm you will taste a real "Bali coffee" to gain energy for the rest of the easy hike to the rice factory (cooperation) and past the school of Piling. As the road continues you will discover a natural warm water spring, a constant jet from inner earth. Before lunch you will stop at the rice fields of Piling where you will learn about the rice plantation process surrounded by beautiful scenery. Depending on the season you will plant the rice, plough, harvest or mow together with one of the local farmers in Tabanan. This activity is an exceptional way to meet locals and becoming a farmer for an hour! For minimum impact on local life, we offer this activity in accordance with the villagers. As a reward after this 6 kilometer adventure tour, a meal will be waiting for you at the famous Anouk's Rice Terrace restaurant with a taste of authentic Piling champagne. With such fantastic views you will sit back to let all impressions pass by once more.
