At this height the incredible views of Bali are enjoyed at a lower and fresher climate then in the south of the island and extend across to the towing mountains and volcanoes as well as down the hillside and across the east of the Bali.It is said that the area of Penglipuran Village takes it’s name from the word ‘Pengeling Pura, which translates roughly as remember your ancestors although another school of though is that the word Penglipur meaning ‘entertainer’ is the origin from which the Penglipuran Village has derived as past kings of the ancient times have been known to retire to the area when in need of some time out from their duties and when in need of cheering up when upset and had royal entertainers based in the area for this reason. Either way it he area is both beautiful and entertaining to this day and well worth an excursion when staying in the Ubud area or if planning a trip around the mountain areas.The residential areas of Penglipuran Village have a very particular look that is unique to the area and extremely aesthetically pleasing with rows of very small but tall traditionally built houses that are very decorative and with thatched roofs. These roads are straight and within the field areas meaning there is a tropical country feel as well as being very culturally interesting. All of these roads are inline with the direction of the mount Agung, which is the most holy peak and one of the most holy places on the entire island. This gives a lovely effect and also extenuates the impressive grandeur of Bali’s largest peak. These cobbled roads sharing their direction with the family temples that can be found in the gardens also facing mount Agung as with the rest of the island the mountain is very important to the culture. In Penglipuran Village its importance is even stronger which is not surprising as it is likely that the villagers’ ancestors where the people who have suffered the most from the eruptions that have taken place in the past. This being said, there has not been an eruption for many years and although the peak is still deemed as active, another eruption is not expected for a long time.

Bangli extends right down to Tianyar and Tejakula where the regency meets the sea, form the highlands of the north of Bangli you can look out over the entire regency which is an amazing view from the rice padi fields down to the coast and the small villages and temples that Bangli encompasses. Bangli is one of the most fertile areas of Bali and is the main reason that the rest of the island is so fertile, the lakes and water couches that create Bali’s many rivers and streams that carve valleys out of the highlands and create streams that lead to the beaches all across the land all begin in the highlands of Bangli.

If you wish to visit this amazing location of lush tropical forest, valleys, highlands, lakes and traditional villages from the south of Bali then the most accessible approach is to use the bypass towards Sanur and then follow it on to Gianyar. Past this point you will enter the rice terraces of Sidan as the roads rise over the Bukit Samprangan as you draw closer to Bangli. When you reach Taman Bali the climb becomes more noticeable as you pass through the woodlands and wind your way up the roads into Bangli.

The southern rice fields contain no real tourist attractions which is actually the areas main attraction. This is an area where the culture is preserved and you are unlikely to see another westerner and the rich traditional values and lifestyle can be appreciated in a way than just cannot be felt in places such as Ubud. Known to some of Indonesia’s most dedicated travelers as ‘the real Bali’ Bangli is one of the few areas that actually exhibits Bali as it was before the tourist boom, the Bali that people first started to come to the island to witness.

Pura Kehen is the main town of the area and is Bangli’s administrative centre with many palaces and large mansions that are excellent to visit as well as the area’s main temples. The temples in this area have more majestic appeal then most due to their grandeur and fantastic backdrop of classic Indonesian beauty.

The lake at the top is home to water sports facilities and is a fantastic photographic opportunity that is a real jewel of Bali.
