Here is your starting point of todays 4 hour guided hiking program. We start from the bridge of Cengana and walk along terraced rice fields, while observing the farmers at work. We will also pass bey one of the magnificent waterfalls in these beautifull side valleys. After having crossed the bamboo bridge, the light trek continues alongside many plantations, where the villagers grow jackfruit, mangosteens, pineapple, rambutan, clove, coffee, cocoa and spices. At the first stopover at Bantenan village you will have a panoramic view all over Singaraja. We are visiting a local farmer’s house, where you will sample some fruit in season, such as freshly cut cocoa fruit. Sample the delicious flesh, covering the actual cocoa bean, as well as a cup of home-grown coffee with the villagers over some chit chat about their work, daily life and family routines. Refreshed you will enjoy the next hiking portion (2 hours) with its adventure touch, downhill through rugged, wild terrain with dense tropical vegetation, and hardly any tourist around! You will finally reach Secret Garden on the river banks, with its roaring and impressive 20 m high waterfall, and the river underneath of it forming a large natural pool, which offers a magnificently refreshing swim in the crystal clear waters. Time to relax and marvel over the wonderful nature- setting, before a short hike takes you back to Shanti Natural hotel, where you will have lunch with a breathtaking valley view on waterfalls and deep ravines.

Continue your way to visit the state temple of king dynasty Gelgel, Pura Taman Ayun, at the idyllic village of Mengwi.
