Overview

Experience the real Bali. Located in Candidasa in East Bali, trek with Somat in the foot hills of Mt Agung. Through rice paddies , lush tropical jungle and arrive Tenganan Village. The trekking is gentle no need for experience the treks can be catered for easy trekking and slightly more difficult. The trek is downhill. Covered foot wear is best and a bottle of drinking water, a sun hat.

We went on a tour today with Somat. The landscape was beautiful and also the nature. Somat is an excellent guide and very knowledgeable about fruits, flowers and herbs. We had a great time! So come here to Bali and enjoy!
