Bali Tours to Bedugul

Discover Kintamani

Beyond Ubud and far from the hustle and bustle of southern Bali, lies a village where rituals are observed to please the Gods, not tourists. It’s a place where the smiles and warmth of the people are genuine and the culture is authentic. Rice farmers work the land and life of the villagers is simple, yet fulfilling.

Kintamani is situated in the north of Bali and at the base of volcanic Mount Batur. From the village lava flows on the mountain are visible and refreshing Lake Batur is a short hike away. On this tour, experience the Elephant Cave at Goa Gajah, Gunung Kawi, the spectacular water temple at Tirta Empul, Besikah Temple, coffee plantations and more.

Reserve a Kintamani tour with our guides and immerse yourself in the authentic culture and friendly people of this timeless community.
