Seven Bali Holidays


The greatest rice terrace landmark in Bali

The Jatiluwih rice terraces in West Bali's namesake upland village are known for their stunning and unusual scenery. The chilly highlands and stunning views of this settlement at the foot of Mount Batukaru provide great photo possibilities and a relaxing escape from the island's congested south.

The Jatiluwih rice terraces, which were once a UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site candidate, consist of over 600 hectares of rice fields that follow the flowing terrain of the Batukaru mountain range. A traditional water management cooperative known as subak, which dates back to the 9th century, looks after these. The cooperative was later recognized as a significant contributor to Bali's 'cultural landscape' listing on the UNESCO World Heritage List.


The Jatiluwih rice terraces overview
The drive up to the highlands of Jatiluwih from the island's south takes around 2 hours and is located about 700 meters above sea level in the Penebel district of the Tabanan regency. Jatiluwih is frequently the major attraction on full-day tours, which also include other notable sights in the region. Batukaru Temple and the neighboring Alas Kedaton Monkey Forest, as well as the scenic Tanah Lot sea temple near the end of the day, in time for the stunning sunset sceneries and supper shows, are among them. This is where you'll discover the largest and most beautiful stretch of rice paddies in Bali, if not all of Indonesia. The settlement of Pupuan, located in Tabanan, has a sister region with similar views. As you approach the region, lush green views will greet you, but the major vantage point is higher up in the village. The main area demands a fee, which is normally covered by tour companies and goes to the local village cooperative fund. The vista from halfway up is simply breathtaking, with 180 degrees of gently sloping terraces stretching as far as the eye can reach.
Dine with an amazing view
A tiny road leading to the Jatiluwih rice terraces is lined with restaurants selling international and local cuisine. The majority of tour itineraries include a lunch stop here. Billy's Terrace Café, which serves local specialties and buffets, and Warung Jatiluwih 259, which is further down the slope, are two of the eateries with the best views. The rice fields are equally impressive at sundown, complete with fireflies and the sound of nature that emerge and become more apparent as the evening progresses. While most travellers on tailored tours enjoy the scenery during the day, the rice fields are equally impressive at sundown, complete with fireflies and the sound of nature that emerge and become more apparent as the evening progresses.
