Johnny and his wife Utami run a 4 room guesthouse out of their home in the jungles of Northern Bali. You’re not going to get a typical well trodden tourist trail here. You’re going to be invited into the home of a passionate and knowledgeable guide who will bushwhack you across valleys to incredible secret waterfalls. The guesthouse is simple but what it lacks in luxury it makes up for in breathtaking views & hospitality and enthusiasm from the hosts. This is an authentic trekking experience! Also, I’ll let you in on a little secret.... Johnny is an Englishman and a wizard in the kitchen. Take a bottle of wine with you, order the crispy duck roast in advance and enjoy what has to be one of the best roast dinners I’ve had in my life. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks Johnny and Utami!

If you find yourselves in the loud din of Kuta or the traffic jams of Denpasar or at the tour bus delivered crowds at various sites near Ubud, you might wonder whether Lonely Planet's summarization of Bali as "achingly beautiful scenery" is an outdated description from a bygone era. It's not. You just have to head out a bit further to find it. BaliTrekk is that place. Let me be clear. It's not near to anything of touristic value. But that's precisely what makes it so great. Here you experience the real Bali, where the culture, traditions, natural beauty, and the friendliness of its people comes alive. BaliTrekk is located in the typical village of Auman in the central mountains. At an elevation of 900 m above sea level, the weather is cool and pleasant. This part of Bali is made up of ridges separated by deep valleys. The roads and towns are usually on the ridges and the valleys and slopes are made up of rice paddies, terraced fields, vegetable gardens, and more. BaliTrekk's property drops down to the valley floor and here they grow their own vegetables that end up in the delicious meals that you eat there. From their porch, on a clear day, you have a view of the imposing Mount Agung in the distance. The owners John and Utami are lovely people. They go out of their way to tailor your trip to your needs. John can take you on guided treks through the forests and cut through the valleys to quickly take you to various places of interest, like the Bedugul Lake. But we decided to rent a scooter from them and explore Bali on our own. They rent out Utami's personal scooter, the ultra-comfortable Yamaha N-Max. And since it's her personal scooter, it's in great condition. Once you get past the early jitters of navigating the scooter on central Bali's twisty and narrow mountain roads, you'll really have fun as you see that Lonely Planet summarization of "achingly beautiful scenery" come alive all around you. John and Utami will also lend you their personal motorcycle gear (armored jackets, helmets) at no extra cost. What I found really touching was that on the second day, a more comfortable helmet was available (which John's son was using the previous day) and John gave me the more comfortable helmet even though I didn't ask for it. They really do go out of their way to make sure that you are comfortable and happy. At the property itself, Utami cooks up some amazing food. Ask her for the Indonesian vegetarian platter. It will be among the best Indonesian food that you will eat on your trip. The western food is good too, but we just couldn't have enough of the Indonesian vegetarian meals. John is a very chatty and friendly guy who will talk to you about your trip, tell you about his experiences and talk about Bali and Indonesia. There's a DVD player in the room and John has a selection of movies that you can borrow to watch after dinner. The bed is comfortable, the room is spacious, and there's plenty of hot water available to shower. Internet may be hard to get here. You can occasionally get Telkomsel 3G coverage, and the WiFi sometimes works, but plan to come here and enjoy the scenery and the tranquility. The connected world will always be there when you get back to the rat race. All in all, if you want to experience traditional Bali with very friendly hosts, definitely stay a few nights at BaliTrekk.

We always pass this place when we go to our grandparents house. And this the first time we decided to stay longer in Plaga, so we stay for 3 days and 2 nights at Bali Trekk. They have their own garden for vegetables and herbs there. And the bed so comfortable and spacious room. It was completely nice and happy to be there. For sure we will be back again for our next holiday. Thank you.

I stayed 2 nights at Balitrekk and absolutely loved it there. The rooms are clean, spacious and confortable. There is a lovely garden terrace area for relaxing and eating and drinking. The guesthouse opens onto a beautiful wooded garden with trees and flowers intermixed, a hammock for chilling after a jungle walk and even an outdoor firepit. Johnny and Utami were excellent hosts, very friendly and extremely knowledgable about Bali life and culture and able to take you on wonderful walks through the surrounding mountains. The food was really delicious - I recommend the duck roast cooked in their dome clay oven. The guesthouse is clearly a labor of love with everything handcrafted by the couple and the garden sown by Utami's green fingers. It is a wonderful place to experience the beauty of the 'real Bali'.

Finally a refreshing break from the heat! We spent 3 days in Bali's highlands at BaliTrekk! In reading Trip advisor reviews, this place had great ratings! They have only been open for a year and is run by John and Utami. They also have 2 boys, about 8 and 10 yrs old. He was originally from England but has been in Bali for many years. She is originally from Java. They have quite an interesting history of an adventursome life. The reviews all highlighted John's trekking guidance! We were definitely interested in this so booked with them and they didn't dissapoint! What a nice time. They both love cooking so always were asking us ahead what we liked and making specially tailored meals, fresh baked bread and pizza in special metal drum oven fashioned by John himself, and picking fiddle head ferns for dinner, etc. They have a full bar setup, ping pong table, outside covered gym, spacious inside and outside seating...lots of room. They have a teak forest in the back yard and going down the valley. John has fashioned an incredible amount of furniture found all over the public area as well as the rooms, each piece quite unique, using the roots and all! Anyway, after making an assessment of our trekking desires and capabilities we set out the next morning on a hike near their place through verdant tropical rainforest to Lake Beratan, and back again on different route. They were quite organized and coordinated, dropping us off by car and leaving us for a few minutes while they re-parked car near our end point. Utami shuttled him by scooter back to us, and again at end to get the car to pick us up. We had expressed interest in viewing the terraced fields of produce and flowers! So while we waited, we were given directions to take a little hike on road that dwindled into scooter path to fulfill our wish! What beautiful countryside in mountainside farming area! I was in heaven! And completely local, no other tourists around! I'm sure the local farmers wondered what we were doing wandering around out there! Upon John's return, we started off through farming area that gradually gave way to Jungle, then deep, tropical, wet, misty woods, full of ferns both in the trees and on the ground, mushrooms, an array of bird calls, and later, giant banyan trees. The trails grow over quickly, so at times he needed to whack with his walking stick to clear the way. Thank goodness he provided us with teak walking sticks! They were invaluable!! It had rained so much, and some places were made much easier with the walking sticks, and all was totally doable for us. Like i said, he will tailor the trek according to your desires and capabilities, always making you feel totally comfortable. He knows the jungle quite well, and we felt totally in great hands, even though we would have been hopelessly lost by ourselves. We only ran into other people at the beginning and end of hike, and in the middle when we went down to the beautiful lake where we stopped at a tiny local warung for refreshments. What a fulfilling day! We spent the next day with them too! It rained all night and most of the day, so we sat on the lovely covered patio, on John's custom made teak furniture, drinking coffee and tea, reading, listening to podcasts, and looking out at Utami's beautiful, peaceful garden! So restful! They are die hard Hash House Harriers! We didn't know anything about this, but after them telling us stories, we became curious. These HHH groups are all around the world. The traditional practice is the hounds (runners) chasing a hare or hares (runner or runners) laying a live trail, marked with something like sawdust or shredded paper. Some groups pre-lay trail. All ages participate. Most people run the trail, but some walk. It's lightly competitive, with a fun, good natured social aspect, and a keg of beer with socializing at the end. So apparently, John and Utami have been participating for years, and go 1-3 times/week! There was a run Monday afternoon and they threw it into the mix of options for us, so we went for it! Wow! One of our favorite experiences of the trip! John said that he was going to run the route, so Utami would be our guide, and if it was too hard a trail, she would take us on an easier trek. We decided to go for it! Yep, we got muddy, had a few river crossings, and absolutely beautiful walks through rice paddies and local areas, with villagers and farmers bathing in the rivers and irrigation canals.....places we would never have seen and experienced so intimately otherwise!! Most people ran, but we mostly walked. We took forever completing the course, and were the last ones back because we were newbies, and also had to keep stopping to view the beauty! Sorry no pics! We couldn't take our cameras because of all the water and mud. Good thing, or we could still be there! Then a keg of Bintang and socializing at the end! And we're not longer Hash House virgins! I'm ready to run next time! Thank you so much John and Utami! Lynelle & Nina
