    Not as long as expected, or I just didn’t walk long enough due to the kids.

    But the panoramic is amazing. Fresh air + sunrise + sweat. Just perfect to be your morning routine.

    Take a walk at 6am local time, and you’ll get the walk on yourself. People will come as the sun rises.

    Climbed Mt Batur for sunrise. Got picked up at 2:30 AM. They provided breakfast at small restaurant before we started. They provided second breakfast at the top with coffee, eggs, toast, fresh fruit (not the normal banana pineapple papaya - but some more unique - mangosteen, and a couple things I can’t remember). Then we stopped at a restaurant for third breakfast - which was a huge buffet. Totally unexpected - or at least I don’t remember being told about it.

    On the hike, our guide - Kadek - explained local history, different plants, the recent volcanic activity and was generally a thoughtful and helpful guy.

    Then we went to the hot springs near Mt Batur which were great. Nice and clean. Other ones on the island not so much.

    As a bonus, on the way home we saw the rice terraces at Teggallalung. They were outstanding. Then as a second bonus, we went to a coffee plantation for the tour and tasting of about 12 different coffee and teas. We maybe got the two add ones cause we didn’t spend a lot of time at the hot springs.

    We usually take years to find paintings that we both like and suit what we are looking for. However here we were spoilt for choice. There was such a range of styles to choose from and so many galleries, that we found many that we both liked. So, rather than having difficulty choosing a painting, our decision was solely determined by the size of the painting. Thoroughly recommended.

    our guide was wonderful spending time explaining the whole process and answering any questions, coffee and tea samples were interesting, the coffee is really good and you can taste the difference, but be prepared to pay if you make it your daily drink

    There is a beautifully preserved rock carving 26m long &2m tall about daily Balinese life: the farmer, animal hunting, women in community. The temple itself is tiny, small and not well maintained. 30k IDR access fee with free sarong included. 500m walk from parking by a nice rice paddies area, but not recommended if is to hot! Kinndly but strong refuse the locals who offer to show you the place, I heard them with a group speaking no English, no history questions answer, but high tip expected. Discover the place by yourself.

    My experience at Hars Garden was amazing! On arrival i was greeted by him at the entrance to his Jungle after walking through his organic garden, with his dreadlocks hanging near to the floor and a big healthy organic smile.
    Instantly i knew that this was the ideal place for me.
    Slowly walking up the steps into my treehouse accommodation trying to take in all the jungle and nature around me.
    The treehouse was unreal! So simple so unique! It drops off probably 20m from the balcony into the deep jungle with a river and waterfall at the bottom!

    Waking up at 6am with a very slight few strips of sunlight shining through the jungle canopy, it was torrential rain and i had never felt ever before the pure deep form of mother nature like that!
    Laying in bed with the large glass windows in front dropping off into the deep wet jungle!
    The sounds of running water and birds,frogs,monkeys literally i did not want to leave this moment.
    3hours later i finally prized myself out of my trance to start the course.
    Breakfast was a huge tray of fruit all from the garden then a main course of salad and ubi (potato) all obviously grown by hars and picked early morning by Hars while i was daydreaming into the jungle haha.

    What i learnt from this dude was not just how to grow great organic food but how to live in this world with the ecosystem and not against it, also how to create a ecosystem on my land in Sumbawa that was partly destroyed by corn farming.
    His information was golden and his mission in life (to save the ecosystem and work with nature) also to educate the word on how to grow organic food and to work with nature not against it.
    Using his own techniques and also others from hundreds of years ago.

    Basically he is a all time hero and the course was very beneficial to me and my family to create a new life over in Sumbawa living from the land and working with Nature.

    The course was supposed to be 2 days but i booked a extra day in because there was so much i wanted to learn!
    Overall i done 3 days 4 nights there, the three hour course a day was not really enough for me to take everything in, ideally i would like to take a week course 8hours a day haha but obviously Hars has a life too and to steal his time that much just wouldn't be fair.

    When i left he kindly gave me over 30 different types of herbs and strains that i could bring with me to sumbawa.
    Now all i need to do is keep them alive and spread hars knowledge to others who are grownig using monoculture techniques destroying the ecosystem.

    Thanks Hars and good luck with your future project in Sumba!

    Peace joy and healthy food Sir

    We visit the place a couple of weeks ago and bought a lot of coffees and teas from their shop, all sugar free, according the labels. But back home, everything taste so sweet, like it's full of sugar, very disappointed, if that's th case...it's misleading and cheating

    Waow, now THIS is the cutting-edge art I was looking for in Ubud! really impressed with both the artworks on display and the cultural context the gallery provided for me in a very friendly way. Felt like I was visiting a cross between an artist's studio and a contemporary art museum - and to think I almost drove right past! Highly recommended.

    Periuk . He is the most beautiful helpful soul. Who teaches & cooks from the heart.
    His classes include more than a traditional market tour, but an insight into the culture behind the people.
    I can't recommend this highly enough.
    We will definately return.
    If your undecided as which cooking class is better for you.
    Unless you want to cook in an airconditioned hotel kitchen. Go to Periuk in Ubud.
    You will be glad you did.
    Five stars.
    Paul.

    Dewa is a fantastic host. We had a terrific home experience where Dewa took the time to not only explain the food but also their way of life and toured us around his village. It absolutely surpassed all our expectations and so far is the single highlight of our trip to Bali. Do not hesitate to book this tour — it is the best. And the food you cook will surpass anything you have in Bali restaurants. We learned so much of the Bali culture, this experience was invaluable.

    Totally recommend! We spend one day together on trip to Lempuyang Temple (gate of heaven), Tirta Gangga, Tukad Cepung waterfall. Everything was perfect, on time. We got cold water and cold towels after every stop to cool down.
    It was so easy to sightseeing when Artana knows all the places and the best stop for pictures. He is helpful and patient, happy to take you extra pictures.
    Also he can answer hundred questions about island, culture, living in Bali, what is very cool! :)

    Hands down the best tour guide in Bali. I've lived here 3 years and Bedu made my family's experience unforgettable.
