All about the trip
Spend a day visiting some of Bali’s most exquisite temples situated well away from the major tourist trails. Located in East Bali within the highlands of Mount Lempuyang, Lempuyang Temple is the day’s first stop. One of the island’s most sacred temples, Pura Lempuyang Luhur is accessed by an ascent of 1,700 steps that take you up to the shrine. The complex is made up of seven temples that speckle a trail leading to the top of Mount Lempuyang. At the lowest temple, you are greeted by a fantastic gateway. Looking through this gate on a clear day reveals Mount Agung perfectly framed within its sides offering the most spectacular sight. Beyond the gate, three beautiful nāga-lined staircases lead up to the lowest temple. The best time to visit the Pura Lempuyang Temple is just before sunset when the view is absolutely breath-taking.
Our next stop is Tirta Gangga, a well-known cultural destination of Bali. A former palace belonging to the Royal Family of Karangasem, Tirta Gangga royal water garden is a stunning maze of koi-filled ponds and impressive fountains surrounded by lush gardens with statues and stone carvings. The one-hectare palace and garden complex is situated in the middle of spectacular lush green rice fields nestled around the natural springs of Rejasa. The water from the natural springs of Tirta Gangga has always been regarded as holy and is often used for religious ceremonies.
We stop to enjoy lunch at a local restaurant with panoramic views of Bali’s countryside, including calming rice fields and majestic Mount Agung.
Our final stop and highlight of the day is the Taman Ujung water palace, the sister site of Tirta Gangga. Also built by the late King of Karangasem, the complex consists of various large pools and historic structures set against the spectacular backdrop of Mount Agung and the eastern shoreline. Take time to admire the combination of Balinese and European architecture seen in the palace’s ornate pillars, statues, garden and pool features not typically seen in Bali. After plenty of time to explore this beautiful place, you will be returned to your hotel.
