An overview of the Jatiluwih rice terraces
The Jatiluwih rice terraces span for over 600 hectares or as far as the eye can see, beyond that lies the majestic Batukaru mountain range. Everywhere else is home to vibrant green landscapes and cooler highlands which offer a serene refuge from the rest of Bali’s magic and madness. The cooler air and silence alone make this trip worth it.
Jatiluwih Rice Terraces in Bali
You can take an early 90-min drive in the morning from Canggu to catch the sunrise and breathe in the fresh air. This place is beautiful with or without the sun and sometimes fog. Here you can kick off your flip-flops and become a kid again, walking and playing in the rice fields with mud and grass between your toes. You can also see cows grazing in the not too far distance and without the swarms of tourists.
Also, you can walk, bike, or hike along several trails ranging from 1 to 4 hrs. Don’t forget to fill your backpack with snacks, a fair amount of water, and of course put on your best walking shoes.
You’ll also want a hat, sunscreen, and it’s never a bad idea to keep bug spray with you while enjoying this amazing place.
The Jatiluwih rice terraces sit at about 2297 feet above sea level in the Penebel district of the Tabanan regency. The drive up to the highlands of Jatiluwih from Ngurah Rai airport to takes about an hour and a half.
