Exploring the North of Bali #1 The Rice Terraces

If you are planning a trip to Bali, you will love to get out of the touristy places and explore the north of Bali! I can highly recommend booking day trips on the street, since you can hire a driver who will take you wherever you want to go. We booked a tour with seven people and payed 750IDR in total.

We arrived at the park and had to pay another 400IDR (instead of 450IDR) per person for the guided hiking tour. I suppose you cannot go on your own, but the tour was really cool! You should really try to negotiate, they may give you a discount when you are booking with a group of people.

After having payed the fee, some locals took us on their scooters and drove us to the Rice Terraces. We started hiking from there and the view was really beautiful! The first stop was a view point where our guides gave us young coconuts and we took a short break.
Walking through the Rice Terraces was thrilling, since you have to watch your steps if you do not want to fall over. I guess this kind of hikes would not be possible in Germany, as it was slightly dangerous some times.

The next stop was a natural waterslide which was really amazing. At first I was really scared, as they will ask you to sit down on a rubber tyre and push you down the rock-waterslide, but it turned out to be really cool and save though.
After our little waterslide adventure, they brought us ginger tea and fresh fried bananas. (I love fried bananas!!!)

We continued our hike and after half an hour we arrived at a small waterfall where we were able to jump into the water and swim in a natural swimming pool.
My GoPro did a nice job, we took so many videos! I still have to edit them though which will take a lot of time probably, since I am really bad at editing videos…
Anyway, this was not the last waterfall we were supposed to see but I would like to split this blogpost into half, since I took far too many photographs!

Enjoy the view and stay tuned :)!

  1. Die Bilder sind so so wunderschön! Ich finde die Reis Felder dort so so magisch und einfach nur wunderschön anzusehen wie dazwischen Bananenbäume und Palmen stehen *-*
    Ich habe auch noch nie in meinem Leben aus einer Kokosnuss getrunken und das möchte ich UNBEDINGT so schnell wie möglich ändern 😀 Stelle ich mir so so lecker vor!
    Ich bin schon total gespannt auf deine GoPro Videos *-* das ist bestimmt nochmal etwas ganz anderes das in bewegten Bildern zu sehen!

    Liebe Grüße ❤

    P.S. Ich liiieebe gebratene Banane auch uuunglaublich sehr! Die Beste Kombi zu Pancakes oder Porridge oder mit kaltem Vanille Eis *-* so so gut!
