CAMPUHAN RIDGE WALK – Ubud SightSeeing

CAMPUHAN RIDGE WALK

Me At Campuhan Bridge Walk

Bali has two major natural offerings – beaches and greenery. While the former are best experienced at Kuta and Nusa Dua, the latter is present in superlative measures at Ubud. And in Ubud, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better place than Campuhan Ridge walk for the same.

What it is: A walk across the rice paddies, Balinese traditional villages, taking in a few art galleries, culture and cafes along the way. Soak in the sights. They’re gorgeous. There are many art cafes with some lovely little paintings you can pick up (bargain!). A great walk for fitness, views or viewing the local artists. Takes about 90 minutes at a brisk pace or hours if viewing all the art on display. Miles and miles of rice fields. You’ll see their unique irrigation and step farming as well as tons of trees.

Anyway, so here are the directions to Campuhan ridge walk:

Let’s use the Ubud market as our starting point. Walk West (or as you exit the market onto the main road, Jalan Ubud Raya, you go left) towards Penestanan/the bridge/Bintang supermarket.

Before the bridge, on your right, you will see a sign for IBAH Hotel. This will be before the clinic and after the turning to Sari Organic if you know where that is.

Turn right at that sign as if you’re going to the hotel (North of the main road if your looking at the map). To the left you will see a road that goes downhill. Drive down and park 50m down at the school, can’t go any further with a moped. Continue reading

TAMAN KERTHA GOSA BALI PLACE

BALI CYCLING Tour Review

When the Dewa Agung dynasty moved here in 1710, the Semara Pura was established. The palace was laid out as a large square, believed to be in the form of a mandala, with courtyards, gardens, pavilions and moats. The complex is sometimes referred to as Taman Gili (Island Garden). Most of the original palace and grounds were destroyed by Dutch attacks in 1908 – the Pemedal Agung , the gateway on the south side of the square, is all that remains of the palace itself (but it’s worth a close look to see the carvings).

Two important buildings are preserved in a restored section of the grounds, and, with a museum, they comprise the Taman Kertha Gosa complex. Although vendors are persistent, parking is easy and it’s easy to explore the town from here. Continue reading
