Ubud's Ridges, Villages & Valleys
Prior to commencing the trek, you will receive a brief orientation of the very beautiful Gunung Lebah (small hill) Temple. The temple, a subak temple (dedicated to the regulation of the water used in the rice paddies) was constructed in the 8th century and started the development of the settlement later to become Ubud.
From the temple you’ll follow the path north, walking up onto the ridge between the two rivers, the Cerik and the Wos. Continue north along the Campuhan ridge, arguably one of the best trekking routes around Ubud. This area has been considered a holy place for centuries. Enjoy the peaceful scenery while you walk between the tall green grasses. It’s truly a majestic walk.
The trek also visits one of the Balinese compounds situated in the area, where you can learn about traditional house building and interact freely with the inhabitants. Your guide will assist you in this exchange. Step once more outside the village to enjoy the rice paddy views and farming activities of the villagers until you arrive at a local resort situated on the edge of the Wos River and the end point for today’s trek. Here you will enjoy a sumptuous set menu lunch on the resort’s open-air terrace, overlooking riverside greenery that remains untouched by the hands of time.
