The Secret Above The Waterfall: Short Version - Trekking

Easy trekking tour - with some possibly slippery passages - to our most beautiful swimming spot

road in bad condition

 

The access routes to the starting point of this hike are in different - but always bad - state.

 


Based on the weather conditions and the current state of the roads we reserve the right to decide if we go the route from west to east, or vice versa.

 


Here the tour is presented in east-west direction. In your personal tour, it could also be that it is performed in an east-west direction.

We will soon forget about these bad roads, when we enjoy the view of the first few meters of the walk. 

 

 

Very soon we are in the middle of the rice terraces and have magnificent views down to the north coast of Bali.

Soon, however, the road lowers down into a valley. There we cross - as the former guests of Bali Vespa tour in the picture - a short and narrow bridge.

 


A little tip: Visit the railing of this bridge You will be surprised!

ricefields

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our path winds through a hilly landscape;

there are some lonesome houses amidst impressive scenery of rice terraces and tropical forest which is called "garden" by the locals.

 

 


Your guide will give you plenty of information about this fact.

We leave the vast landscape and follow a small creek, which purls cheerfully beside us.

 


Here we come very close to tropical fruits.


You want to know what chocolate looks like, when it's still hanging on the tree?


You can find out on this tour.

 

 

 

 


But you can already see a photo of it:

steep stairway

 

 

And then we will finally step down into the gorge, where our riverpool is waiting.



Do not worry - the stairs looks worse than they really are.



And there is a responsible guardian who cares for the banister made ​​of bamboo and the steps.



Nevertheless, we will go down very carefully.



 

Down there you will see this:

the river-pool

And that's how it really looks like!

Here you have time to freshen up to your heart's content in the pleasantly cool water, or simply marvel at the magic of the place. Of course there is now time zo have a picknick. We are famous for our good food. Tell us when booking, what we should be considerate of to your dishes. We will pamper you with genuine Balinese treats! Rested, refreshed and satisfied we will start again.

tropical landscape

On our way through the beautiful countryside we could visit locals and drink coffee with them. And depending on the development of the vegetation and the season your guide will be able to tell you much about the crop of Bali. 


Did you know for example that in Bali the specific insects which pollinate the vanilla are not there? And that's why the farmers have to pollinate each vanilla blossom by hand?

 


The picture shows Gede with a vanilla plant in hand who just tells guests this story.

At a warung (small kiosk), where you could enjoy another cup of coffee, you can see all the ingredients the locals need to prepare their daily meals. For sure your guide will explain everything you want to know about that issue.

 

 

Here you will be picked up from our drivers and brought home safely.

guests shooting photos in the ricefields

 

 

At a lookout point right at the small side street on which we return home, it is possible to stop one last time to shoot photos.

 

 


The rice fields in the foreground form a delightful contrast to the shoreline in the background.
