    Pacung and the Jatiluwih Rice Terraces

    4 more images

    as most tour bus and private van packaged tours on a full day tour with stops at bedugul include a lunch stop at the town of Pacung along the JL Raya Baturiti Road, you can have a spectacular view of the rice terraces of Jatiluwih Village along the the mountain slopes of Mount Batukari while you eat lunch. you can go to Jatiluwih Rice Terraces if you want but if you have a powerful zoom camera like us, then you just press the optical ultra zoom botton and viola, you can take a picture of one of the famed rice terraces of Bali. the other touristy rice terraces are in Tegelalang in the Tampak Siring area.

    Gitgit Waterfalls

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tourists who gets engulfed with the bustling Kuta or the ever-famous Ubud sometimes forget that there are other spectacular sceneries in Bali's coutnryside.

    Take for instance - the breath-taking Gigit waterfalls, located in a village of the same name.

    The waterfalls have several leyers of water - some small but one of them is about 50 meters in height.

    Admission is free, but would be nice to give some donations for the villagers.

    So if you're done with Lake Bratan and on the way to Singaraja, you'll pass by along Gigit village, the waterfalls is a walk along the path from the main road.

    It's inside the Botanical Gardens. They have 5 circuits up in the trees and many flying-fox (zip-lines).
    Lots of families go there because it's really for all ages. The higher circuits are 20 m high and only for adults, but young children can play in lower circuits.

    I think it's one of the best place for families in Bali !

    Garden entrance
    1 more image

    The driver stopped before we reached the entrance so we could purchase our tickets.
    We could either buy a ticket to drive around the gradens or we could get a cheaper ticket and walk. We chose to walk because we wanted to look for birds and we had just had lunch so we needed the exercise.
    We walked thru the beautiful stone carved gates and saw several other statues carved from stone. There was lots and lots of trees but very few flowers. The orchid and cacti houses were closed so all we could see of them was through the windows.
    It was early afternoon and not a great hour for finding birds either.
    We walked around for about an hour and then went looking for our driver.
