On the day tour we start the journey at 09:00 am from Ubud purana boutique hotel , drive up to Payangan Village where is the start point of Ayung Rafting
After driving about one hour from Purana resort to Payangan, finally we arrive at the start point of ayung river rafting. Friendly welcoming by the staff and river guide at ayung river rafting office and start point . And then every one rapidly shettle the payment with the cost 30 usd per person included on price with lunch buffet indonesian food, insurrance, rafting equipment and also friendly rafting guide .
Rafting at ayung river is take about two hours duration from the start point to finish point in kedewatan village west of Ubud with 16 Km distance from the start point to finish point of ayung river rafting.
Friendly rafting guide give us instruction and trainee about the rafting code and how to pedal before we start the rafting, wearing all the safety equipment as life jacket, helmet, water proff bag, arms protection and also choice the great pedal stick then the amazing adventure was start.
After having so much fun on the river rafting, i have meet every one in the meeting point with all those bags of course because i asked every one to leave the bags in the car, because on the finish point make us easier, don’t have to get back to start point again to get back the bags on the locker.
With a big smile on everyone face i meet them at the finish point , welcome every to to a shower and change their clothe because on rafting is make us completly wet. And after shower and changing every one was having lunch with yummi indonesian food on buffet .
After lunch we continue to visit the most famous rice terrace of tegalalang , within half an hour we make it to reach at tegalalang rice terrace from kedewatan ubud. We don’t take the main road of ubud because at the afteenoon the main road of ubud will be so much traffic and i decided to pass by keliki village where is also on that road famous with the Jungle fish retreat and one resort i remember call puri sebali. We pass true rice field and hilli road make us faster and not finding any traffic at all.
Visiting the rice terrace in ubud tegalalang village there is ticket to purchase with tariff 10.000 idr per person , the ticket is included all insurrance and also free mineral water provided on ticket officer . Since the weather is so hot , a complimentary water is good for us. And this time of our visit there is one missing on the rice terrace as we couldn’t see the green rice on terrace because the farmer just start to replan the rice .
And also it was Indonesian independent day 17-8-2016 the farmer has put the flag of Indonesia in middle of rice field. Small trekking we did to exploring the rice terace , walk about 40 to 45 minutes to visit the other side of rice terrace on trekking tour . The big note for every one to prepare trekking on rice terrace is ” small Money ” the funny things is after paying the official ticket to make visit of the rice terrace we have to pay also the donation to the farmer to use the brigde and the farmer said the bridge was build by the farmer creativity and not by the official goverment. And now they asked 10.000 idr from every one who like to use the bridge to get to the top rice terrace. Well is wort to pay but it’s not that good suprice to have speending money again.. with the amazing view , all the ticket issue is paid for us.
After the rice terrace we continue to visit the Elephant cave temple or local famous name is Goa Gajah Temple . Located in the east side of Ubud where the local village call Bedulu. Very easy to find the temple because is located on beside the main street. And from Tegalalang rice terrace we travel drive about 40 minutes to get here included traffic .
Visiting the Goa Gajah Temple there is ticket 15.000 idr per person and there is sarong provided for visitor to wear as for respecting the area holy temple of Goa Gajah. Visiting the temple in Bali there is one of rule which is must be followed to avoid the bad luck which is ” women or girl on the menstruation or period time is for bidden to go in side the temple area” thats the rule. And also when we was in Goa Gajah temple we also whent to visit in side the cave, and found the Lingga of Tri Murti God as Balinese Hindu we call Brahma Wisnu and Ciwa .
after we visiting the Goa Gajah Temple , we continue our trip to visit Tegenungan waterfall on Kemenung Village , well located in Blahbatuh district south east of Ubud . Visiting the Tegenungan Waterfall there is ticket 10.000 idr per person and from Ubud to tegenungan waterfall is take about 20 minutes drive more less because the traffic is kind of heavy this week.
amazing view can be capture by camera from the view point and if you like to visit down the river as we do , then get ready for step on 72 stairs going down to the river side and bring some water for sure . And over all our adventure on the waterfall was fantastic.
