Immerse yourself in the spiritual side of the island as you take part in some of the sacred rituals that are an important part of daily Balinese life.
The first visit of the morning is to the 11th century Elephant Cave, also known as Goa Gajah. Built as a spiritual place for meditation you may even chance upon some of Bali’s Hindus bathing in the sacred springs. After visiting the relic-filled courtyard, cave and pools, continue to the traditional Balinese village of Mas. Your host, Gusde, will take you on a tour to visit the compound of an important family and meet the local priest, or Brahman. Feel free to ask questions as you chat for a while over tea, coffee and Balinese cake.
Then it’s time for a private session with a local astrologer to experience a unique fortune telling using ancient methods. This is followed by a traditional Balinese blessing and purification ceremony conducted by the priest in the family temple.
