Sidemen Village in Bali - Rice Fields Landscapes and Traditional Farming Village in East Bali
Sidemen Village is East Bali’s panoramic answer to the more famous Jatiluwih rice terraces in West Bali. Here you’ll find a rural countryside down the southern hillsides of Bali’s tallest mountain, Mount Agung. Swathes of paddies and plantations in the village's countryside are tended by their respective farming communities. The village area is a main destination for day trips through the eastern region. It's where you can find a 'real Bali' scene that offers both beautiful Bali rice paddy landscapes and interesting cultural highlights.
The scenic and traditional Sidemen Village is between the Klungkung and Besakih Temple route. It's usually an included stop on sightseeing journeys to the East Bali region. From Ubud, it’s roughly a two-hour drive. The main highlights are its expanses of rice fields, with many available tours offering nature and paddy treks. These offer you an immersive experience, often traversing local plantations and crossing rivers. You can also enjoy a leisurely bicycle tour through the relatively downhill routes of the village
