Our Tour Guide

Our tour guide will be with you at all times when you are cycling on a tour program. The guide should have extensive knowledge of the area, and will be able to keep you on course, and on schedule throughout the holiday. The advantage of a touring is that you don’t have to worry about finding your way, and can therefore focus your efforts on enjoying the riding and the scenery. The guide will also be able to show you hidden routes and point out interesting landmarks that you might never have found if you were on your own. The guide can take you to places that you would never have considered riding before and can be a real experience. You will also get to meet other people in the group and potentially strike up new friendships. One thing to consider is that because you will inevitably be part of a larger group (not always the case for shorter tours), flexibility will be limited to what the group as a whole wants to do. You will also be expected, within reason, to keep up with the group, so always check the grading allocated to that holiday and ensure it’s within your limits. Speak to the tour operator beforehand if you have any concern.

We have local guides to show the way. These are experienced competitions riders having represented Bali in national competitions. A guide will be assigned to lead each group and to unsure you are led safely to each day’s endpoint. As there will be many junctions and turns, please follow your guide and refrain from breaking from your group. Navigation data be issued daily during dinner the night before.

Tour  Schedule

Day 1. Arrived in Bali – Pickup at Airport – Prepare Cycling tour

Day 2 . Kuta – Tanah Lot – Alas Kedaton – Marga  – Bedugul  (80 km  from 10m to 1300 m sea level)

Tanah Lot means “Land in the Middle of the sea” in Balinese language. Located about 20 km from Denpasar, the temple sits on a huge offshore rock which has been shaped continuously over the years by the ocean tide.

Tanah Lot is said to be the work of the 15th century priest Nirartha. The story goes that during his travels along the south coast he saw the rock-island’s beautiful setting and rested there. Some fishermen saw him, and bought him gifts. Nirartha then spent the night on the little island. Later he spoke to the fishermen and told them to build a shrine on the rock for he felt it to be a holy place to worship the Balinese sea gods.

The Tanah Lot temple was then bTanah Lotuilt and has been an important part of Balinese mythological history for centuries. The temple is one of seven sea temples around the Balinese coast. It was said that each of the sea temples was to be within eyesight of the next so that they formed a chain along the south-western coast.
At the base of the rocky island, poisonous sea snakes are believed to guard the temple from evil spirits and intruders. There is said to be one giant snake which also protects the temple. It is believed that this snake was created from Nirartha’s scarf when he established the island.  The area leading to Tanah Lot is highly commercialized and people are required to pay to enter the area. To reach the temple, visitors must walk through a carefully planned set of Balinese market-format souvenir shops which cover each side of the path down to the sea. On the mainland cliff tops, restaurants are built for the tourists to relax.

Alas Kedaton is located in Kukuh countryside, Marga Sub district, Tabanan Regency . The journey go to this place can be done easily by using motor vehicle follow the major roadway from Denpasar to Tabanan. On the way go to this tourist place, we will see the beautiful nature view where in front of us will meet the carpet of rice field and irrigation voice at the side of road to bear the impression/peaceful atmosphere. Alas Kedaton Temple have three yard that are external yard, middle and center yard. In the center and middle yard are encircled by wall and the outside yard is representing a open yard. The interesting point of this temple is the inside yard representing holy yard, its situation lower than the middle yard. This thing is different compare with the general temples in Bali that are more goes to inside the temple, the more higher the place will be. Beside of that another interesting point of this temple owns four entrances.
Alas Kedaton or “Holy Forest: is a small forest measuring 12,00ha where you can see hundreds of monkeys in their natural habitat. It’s one of the place in Bali where monkeys exist, free and peaceful. There are hundred of monkeys in this forest and high up on the big trees many bats area hanging and singing with their loud voices. Be aware that the monkeys are easily attracted by shiny objects, such as cameras, jewelry, wristwatches or glasses – best to leave these things behind or keep them hidden.

Day 3   Bedugul -  Mayong Air Panas – Banjar – Seririt – Lovina (60 km from 1300 m to 10m sea lavel)

Air Panas Banjar

Desa Banjar is one of the most important for history of North Bali from pre-history up to the era where Indonesian struggle for Independence. This administrative area of Kabupaten Buleleng has some places of interest that have been well known by the visitors to Bali.

Old Villages : Around Desa Banjar are many older villages of Bali, which is believed to have been earlier to settle Bali compared to other lowland residents. Those villages such as Sidatapa, Tigawasa, and Pedawa village. It is not considered old is Tamblingan village, although the fact that this village is already recorded in a king charter dated 11th century. It is probably the location of Tamblingan is on the trade route between south and North Bali, so this village has been developing faster compared to those, so their oldness is not visible, or simply forgotten. Tigawasa village itself is a field research for Archaeology, due to the finding of ancient remains of human activities from stone and metal ages. Many excavations have been organized by the department of Archaeology of Udayana University which throw light on the distribution of people in Bali starting metal age and continues until the arrival of Hindu tradition.

Oldest and Biggest Buddhist Monastery; in Desa Banjar is exist the biggest and oldest Buddhist monastery in Bali. Despite the fact that Buddhism developed much earlier on south Bali, but it is not found significant Buddhist organization and construction both monastery or temple. Buddhism arrived in Bali as old as the Hindu did, and even there is an assumption based on the finding of clay tablet in Pejeng area that the Buddhist might arrive earlier then the Hindu. The clay tablet stamped with the Buddhist mantram called ” yete ” showing a great similarities with those clay tablets found in the area of Prambanan temple of 7th century. Later due to the syncretism between Buddhism of left hand path with the Shiwaitic sectarianism of Hindu, the Buddhism seemed to have been absorbed by the Shiwaitic path and bearing a different practice of conducting a religious activities. This tradition can still be seen until today that the priest of the Hindu conducting the same ritual together with the Buddhist priest for certain big Hindu ritual. A remnants of what is called ” Tantrayana ” Buddhist and the Shiwa Bairawa can be seen at Pejeng that is the temple of Kebo Edan. The remains of the practices such as sculptures, altars and others reminds of the strong practice of the left hand path Buddhism and Shiwaism around 13th century.

Hot Water Spring; this is located58533716 very close to the location of the village and very popular among foreign visitors to enjoy the scenery and hot water bathing. Good facilities for traveling to the area has been constructed, and even small accommodation is also available. Lately not only foreign tourists that visiting the hot spring but also local people to soak to the hot water. It is said that the water can cure skin disease. A tour itinerary visiting North Bali will always include the visit to hot water spring in Banjar which is one of the highlight of natural interest of Bali. Some tourists even organized to stay for some nights in this hot spring area to specifically take intensive bathing in the hot water spring.

North Bali Lovina Beach area

The North Bali Lovina area is mainly characterized by its rural nature of fishing, farming, rice fields, plantations, mountains, forests, lakes and waterfalls – a true Bali paradise for culture, nature and meditation lovers, and for photographers it will certainly be a true paradise to take the most wonderful Bali pictures, because the unspoilt nature of the North Bali Lovina area forms an excellent decor for the most beautiful Bali pictures you can think of. Explore our Wonderful Bali pictures section and discover that the north Bali Lovina area has many, unexpected panoramas to offer with spectacular, breathtaking views.

Lovina is a relatively new name coined in the 1950s by a local Buleleng Regency official with a good eye for future tourism-based development. It essentially consists of seven traditional villages which all merge into one on a ten kilometre stretch of the main road which hugs the north coast west of Singaraja: Temukus, Kalibukbuk, Anturan, Pemaron, Tukad Mungga, Banyualit and Kaliasem. Kalibukuk is the main hub of this area and is often thought of “Lovina town centre”.

The whole stetch of coast here is fringed by quite narrow black sand beaches which are accessed by a multitude of small lanes which run perpendicular to the east-west coast road. The beaches are generally safe for swimming and the waters of Bali’s north coast, in direct contrast to the crashing surf of the south, are relatively calm.  Diving, snorkeling and dolphin watching are the main activities, but perhaps above all else, this is an area in which to relax and take in a very slow, traditional pace of life. It can get a little crowded in July and August but outside that peak season, this is a quiet part of the island.

Day 4 Lovina – Singaraja – Kubutambahan –Tulamben -  Amed ( 90 km  from 10 m  to 10m sea lavel

East Bali is everything you dreamed it would be a rare and special Paradise of astounding exotic beauty, vibrant culture and friendly people. East Bali a small part of the island that provides a thousand opportunities to explore in a day, do trekking surround the hills and volcano, walking along the nature beach, witnessing the sunrise on the beautiful strait of Lombok and the romantic sunset on the top of Mt. Agung or just to see the villages tapping palm, wine and try to sip it.  Along the beach of Tulamben, Amed and Bunutan village is one of the world

Every bay is different, some shingle, some rocky and some sandy, with Bali’s best diving right off the beach. In one bay there’s a Japanese World War  II patrol boat just 10m off the shore. Accommodation is reasonably priced and ranges from basic to good quality, with new places opening every couple of months. Food is adequate and cheap but don’t expect nightlife, as there isn’t any. Every bay is lined with double-outrigger fishing boats and the horizon is filled with literally hundreds of triangular sails as they head off to the fishing grounds morning and afternoon. Amed is a perfect destination for families and the more mature travelers. Younger people like it too but often overdose on peace and tranquility after a few days.

The main tourist center back then (everything being relative, of course) was Denpasar and getting there meant driving through the highlands from Singaraja. He describes Singaraja as having neat Dutch bungalows, gasoline stations, dingy shops where people are unkempt. He complains that the beautiful Balinese people of the steamship pamphlets are nowhere to be seen.

They had been filled with images of waving palms, women carrying baskets of fruit in their heads and picturesque rice terraces. Their ship had sailed from New York, through the Panama canal, across the Pacific Ocean and down through the South China Sea.
In 1930 Bali was still under Dutch control and Singaraja, the capital of Buleleng was already a trading port complete with Javanese, Arabs, Chinese and Europeans. Back then the southern area of Bali was not very populated and Covarrubias refers to the area as the malarial coasts of Kuta, Sanur, Benoa and Ketewel.

Cycling in Bali

Cycling in Bali

Tirtagangga royal watergarden is composed mainly by water, plants and sculptures. It is situated in the middle of rice fields around the natural springs of Rejasa, approximately 7 km. (5 miles) north of Amlapura, the main town of east Bali, Indonesia. Tirtagangga is a well-known cultural object of Bali. It belongs to the royal family of Karangasem.

The area of the watergarden is about 1.2 ha (3 acres), consisting of three levels of ground stretching from east to west. On the highest northern Swahlevel there are the spring under the Banyan tree, the upper swimming pool and two decorative ponds, one with four fountains reminiscent of Versailles, and the other with Victoria lotuses.

The first thing one sees when entering the garden is the elegant eleven-tiered Nawa Sanga fountain which rises from the middle of the complex. This fountain together with the two ponds form the middle Bwah level.The larger lowest Bhur level, on the left side of the straight foot path running from the entrance to the west, is occupied by the big South pond with the long Demon island in the middle.

HOLY WATER

The water from one of the natural springs of Tirtagangga has always been regarded as holy. It is used for religious ceremonies in the temples in the area until today. Tirta means blessed water, gangga cames from Ganges, the holy river in India. The holy water is required for ceremonies of the temples in the surrounding as far as Tirtagangga can be reached by foot.

At certain celebration days the people from the villages around will come in colourful processions with offerings, umbrellas, flags and other attributes. Led by their temple priest they hold ceremonies around the spring under the sounds of hymns and the music of the beleganjur.The springs have a huge output of pure water. The water is first led to a reservoir where it is divided in two parts. One third provides drinking water for the town Amlapura. The remainder goes into the upper swimming pool through an underground pipe. The overflow of water goes into the lower swimming pool, the other ponds and finally to the rice fields.

Taman Ujung

Taman Ujung Sokasada was the residence of Karangasem Royal Family between 1909 and 1945. It was built in 1919 by the late King of Karangasem, I Gusti Bagus Jelantik. The King of Karangasem Djelantik with his wives (yes, plural..) and children lived here, and it is also their proud place to welcome royal guests from other regions and even countries. It is very interesting to look at their private rooms with old style traditional bed, old family photos hang on the walls.

There is always a little altar table in each room, something very mystical and typical balinese for me..There is even one area where you can not touch or step further inside, that’s the King & Queen bed (off course, who wants to jumpin’ around on the King of Karangasem bed!). I noticed one interesting photo on which a dutch wife of King Karangasem featured. So yes, this royal family has now western blood with this beautiful culture melange!

Candi Dasa

Most sources say a fishing village was founded on the site by the 12th century and before the modern name of Candi Dasa was adoped it was known as both Teluk Kehen (“Bay of Fire”) and Cilidasa. There is a temple near the lagoon, with a statue of the fertility goddess Hariti surrounded by a group of children, and cilidasa translates from Balinese as “ten children.” The modern name is thought to be a corruption of this older name. The town began to catch on as a tourist destination in the 1970s, since there is good snorkeling and diving in the area and the town provides easy access to other destinations in eastern Bali. In the 1970s and 1980s, the area received a large amount of investment in tourism and a construction boom. To fuel the construction of beach bungalows, new homes and restaurants, the offshore reef was mined for lime to make cement and other construction materials. This removed the coastal barrier that had protected the beach which was undermined and washed away. Local hotel owners constructed a series of t-shaped groins jutting out into the water in an attempt to preserve the beach, with mixed results.

Day 6. Candi Dasa – Tenganan – Gua  Lawah – Kertagosa – Gua Gajah-Ubud (55km from 10 m to 600 m sea lavel)

Ubud is a remarkable town in the middle of the island of Bali. For more than a century, it has been the island’s preeminent centre for fine arts, dance and music. While it once was a haven for scruffy backpackers, cosmic seekers, artists and bohemians, Ubud is now a hot spot for literati, glitterati, art collectors and connoisseurs. Famous names walk its busy sidewalks everyday. Elegant five star hotels and sprawling mansions now stand on its outskirts, overlooking the most prized views in Bali. Nonetheless, Ubud is still popular with backpackers, mystics and all the finest fringe elements of global society. Ubud is not “ruined”. Its character is too strong to be destroyed. It still draws people who add something; people who are actively involved in art, nature, anthropology, music, dance, architecture, environmentalism, “alternative modalities,” and more.

Day 7. Ubud – Kintamani Penelokan – Ubud (80km from 600m to 1300m to 600 m sea level)

Mount Batur (Gunung Batur) is an active volcano located at the center of two concentric calderas north west of Mount Agung, Bali, Indonesia. The south east side of the larger 10×13 km caldera contains a caldera lake. The inner 7.5-kilometer-wide caldera, which was formed during emplacement of the Bali (or Ubud) ignimbrite, has been dated at about 23,670 and 28,500 years ago.

The SE wall of the inner caldera lies beneath Lake Batur; Batur cone has been constructed within the inner caldera to a height above the outer caldera rim. The Batur stratovolcano has produced vents over much of the inner caldera, but a NE-SW fissure system has localized the Batur I, II, and III craters along the summit ridge. Historical eruptions have been characterized by mild-to-moderate explosive activity sometimes accompanied by lava emission. Basaltic lava flows from both summit and flank vents have reached the caldera floor and the shores of Lake Batur in historical time. The caldera contains an active, 700-metre-tall stratovolcano rising above the surface of Lake Batur. The first historically documented eruption of Batur was in 1804, and it has been frequently active since then.

The caldera is populated and includes the two main villages of Kedisan and Toya Bungkah. The locals largely rely on agriculture for income but tourism has become increasingly popular due to the relatively straightforward trek to the summit of the central crater.
