Subak Bali UNESCO World Heritage Tour

This full day Subak Bali UNESCO World Heritage tour takes you on a journey through the heritage listed cultural landscape of five rice terraces and their water temples. After being picked up from your hotel Bali Res Centre will take you north towards the Subak Landscape of Pakerisan Watershed where you will see many archaeological sites including Gunung Kawi, the royal tombs of ancient Balinese kings.

This Bali tour then heads to the Supreme Water Temple of Pura Ulun Danu Batur located at the rim of Lake Batur, a crater lake off the side of Mount Batur which provides fresh water for rice irrigation. This water temple is one of the two most important water temples in Bali. Here you will stop for a lunch break (at own expense). Further on take in the scenic vistas from the lookout at Jatiluwih over the lush rainforest valley, rice terraces and traditional houses.

The tour then proceeds to The Royal Temple of Mengwi, which was built in 1634 by a King of the Mengwi dynasty. The name of the temple means ‘Garden Temple in the Water’ and it stands on an island in a river, its inner temple surrounded by a moat. Pura Taman Ayun was built as a series of garden terraces with courtyards on different levels. The Subak Bali UNESCO World Heritage tour offers a different experience to the beaches and surf of coastal Bali, taking in the landscape and culture of the mountains and rural areas.
