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.
