Did you know it is only 7 kms from Ubud? So we rented 2 bicycles for half a day ($25 rupiah for 2 bikes), rode there, explored the cave (inside nothing much, outside has beautiful reliefs), the surrounding buildings and gardens are lovely; and rode home with a stop at local open air eatery for bakso mie ($15 rupiah each)...

This place is good to see, you can rinse your face with the sacred water, apparently it keeps you young. Make just sure that you arrive there early in the morning as it gets full of touristic buses quickly. Price entrance is around 15,000rp. You can Park there.

We stumbled across this place by accident - while it is great for a little walk around, my partner and I left saying "don't really get what all the fuss is about" good to go if you're like us and like to tick everything off your bucket list but definitely not a highlight of Bali for us.

The actual cave was mediocre, but the lower lying Buddhist temple was amazing. A sight to be hold. Make sure to bring a sarong for the temple and no menstruating or bleeding if any kind while there.

Touring for the day, we were taken to the Elephant Cave as one of the stops in Ubud. This was quite scenic and entailed lots of walking, steps and waterfalls, it looked lovely. The day was very hot when we visited, but there are plenty shops inside to buy cold water. Had a decent market place where we ended up... More

Looks like on of the less crowded temples in Ubud (but as usual we went there early). Visit the Buddha temple at the bottom.
