    Fresh air, not crowded!
    I have been to tegalalang before and thought Jatiluwih might be a new experience. It was my partner's first time to Bali and I chose Jatiluwih this round because of the mountainous background. It was the last stop of our North Bali day tour. The air was fresh and we enjoyed the tranquil sounds of nature and cooling tempoerature at the rice terraces. There were no crowds at all and you can take photos everywhere without people in the background. I gave 4 stars because unfortunately the rice had already been harvested when we were there so we didn't have the lush green views. No touristy souvenir shops or specially set-up Instagram spots but Jatiluwih felt very local and vast. There was a cafe for drinks and food overlooking the fields. Hopefully we can see the rice plants the next time.

    Authentic rice terraces which are a must-see in Bali
    We visited these stunning rice terraces and rice paddies in August as part of a private tour. The scenery was stunning and we enjoyed trekking through the rice terraces and stopping off for fresh coconut along the way. There were only a few tourists around when we visited which was welcome given how busy most tourist sights are in Bali. Highly recommended.

    Great experience
    Amazing place, just kilometres of rice paddies and terraces. You can walk around the terraces and around the rice fields, there is a paved walking track and for cyclists. It is a truly amazing sight and well worth the trip up there.

    Excellent scenic walks with a cool breeze!
    Beautiful views of the rice terraces for miles and miles. As this is a higher elevation it is also considerably cooler that in the jungle. The walks are well signposted and easy under foot. Only thing worth knowing is take food and drink with you as once you’re in the fields on the paths, there isn’t much. Occasional local selling over priced coconuts and Coca Cola, but that’s it. There are cafes and restaurants in the car park areas though! Thoroughly recommend for a more relaxing day!

    Bali at its Beautiful Best
    Visiting Jatiluwih was one of the highlights of our trip to Bali. Thank god for UNESCO protection as this location is so beautifully preserved, unlike some of the overrun temple sites on the island. It was such a pleasure to hike through the stunning rice fields in peace and tranquility. Highly recommend.

    Spectacular
    Stunning! You pay as you drive in to the town to access it. At the centre is a small strip with a few restaurants (amazing meal with a view) , after we had a lovely walk, we’ll signposted, through the fields. So beautiful, well worth the drive.

    Jatiluwih vs Tegallalang
    Tegallalang is no competition to Jatiluwih, a UNESCO heritage site. Visited both and find the former a tad too touristy. there are balinese swings and other furnishing that have nothing to do with paddy fields but all about creating the perfect instagram shots. the latter still have the buffalos stationed at various sites, to work the fields. the irrigation system is also more obvious for those interested the Jatiluwih location is also more scenic. the fields are framed by volcanic mountains. it is beautiful even on a cloudy afternoon i was there. the paddy fields are mostly in seedlings stage during my visit (january). therefore, if you are looking for the perfect green carpet, my recommendation is to visit in march-april.

    Very commercialized, but still worth it
    Accessing the Jatiluwih rice fields area requires a fee. Despite commercialization since our last visit, the rice fields remain stunning. A walking path winds through, providing easy access. It's a bit of a trek from Nusa Dua, but the scenery is worth it. Grab a meal or drink at one of the nearby restaurants overlooking the valley, then stroll through the paddies. The landscape, shaped over centuries, is still tended today, often with cows. Jatiluwih rice terrace is a must-visit spot in Bali, with its fairy tale-like beauty. Enjoy the view over a drink or meal at a nearby restaurant. If possible, consider staying nearby for a couple of days for a more immersive experience.

    A highlight-very natural, beautiful and peaceful place with many walks
    This was an absolute highlight of my rural trip in Bali. As a Unesco site, it is peaceful with little traffice and many walking tracks through the paddy fields. There are refreshment stops available every now and then too. Loved it and highly recommend. Far more natural than other tourist spots advertised.

    Well worth a visit
    Stayed in Ubud for a week to hike some of the mountains in the north. Went to these rice fields one day for a break from the big hikes, and was impressed. Well worth a visit though it’s a bit of a journey to get there. Took about 1 hour 45 mins from Ubud by car, but no doubt if you use a driver he will suggest other places to visit on the trip as well as the rice fields, if you want to see more sights. Minimum entry fee for tourists, I think it was 50000 IDR. The money from the entry fee apparently goes for upkeep of the site and access road to it. It is very well maintained and hassle free. Plenty of eateries around the entrance area, with some smaller (and cheaper) warungs on the walk around. Lovely views from the trails, including the local mountains such as Batakuru etc. Different trails to follow of varying distance, I did a two hour trail. The trails are well signposted and marked, and pathways almost all concreted or paved. Easy to walk around. There were some people cycling, but I don’t know if you can actually hire bikes on-site. All in all, a half day well spent. 👍

Scenic green view. I visited Subak Jatiluwih Heritage Tourism on 14 August 2021. The rice looks very green and the rice terrace looks very amazing seen from the Warung (food stall). I had a light lunch of Balinese red fried rice which was grown and harvested from Jatiluwih agricultural site. I had short trekking along the rice terrace and took some pictures to take home. Then I had a stop at Warung Krisna where I had an organic red rice tea and had a small talk with Pak Wayan, the owner of the small restaurant. Overall, the visit was great.

Nyoman, our guide, was prompt in picking us up at our resort and leading us on a wonderful trek to the Jatiluwih Rice Terraces and Belulang Hot Springs. He is a very safe driver with a clean, comfortable van. Friendly, conversive, humorous and spiritual, he is not only a pleasant tour guide, but also very knowledgable about Bali's history. If you are in the Ubud region of Bali, we highly recommend that your hire Nyoman for your touring plans. Safe travels!

Various length of easy to follow walking trails depending on your energy level. Bring water especially on a hot day. The tiered landscape with 3 sessions a year planting is beautiful to look at. When the rice is ready they stop the drainage so the terrain is dry to harvest.

Jatiluwih is the biggest and most iconic rice paddies that you can find in Bali. It's so breathtaking and you can enjoy this place for hours. In order to have a better experience you may get a tour guide to bring you to the best spot available here.

Rice terraces as far as the eye can see. I came here, via private driver, on a Tuesday in mid-December 2022. I understand why people come here but to me, it's just not worth the effort to get out here.

It's out in the middle of nowhere and it's really out of the way. I'm glad I came here, I just think you can see rice terraces all over Bali. It's unique in that there are so many of them though.

We came here and had lunch with a nice view of the terraces. It was really rainy so we didn't go too far in. I did enjoy the scenery with my lunch though. Make sure you bring cash for the entrance ticket.

We visited this place on our trip back from Ulun Datun Beratan temple. I was mesmerized by the beauty of the rice terraces. They are completely green when the paddy has not been harvested. There are multiple trails you can walk on depending on how much time you have. Many places to take pictures. As it's far from Ubud and all there is less crowd.

There were only a view people when we visited this place. So we could really enjoy the green view without being disturbed by number of visitors. This UNESCO World Heritage site was unique. It shows the Balinese traditional agricultural system that applies multilevel irrigation for rice fields that we couldn't find at the other place.

Dropped by for a visit and did not expect the hikes to take at least an hour each. Ended up walking around taking pictures before heading back to the entrance.

Even through the short walk, we found it to be very enjoyable with manageable crowds for good photos and there were also refreshments available long the trail.

We would definitely come back in the future if we return to Bali.
