During this full day tour discover the culture, countryside and stunning scenery of Bali. Start the day with a performance of the famous Barong and Keris Dance. This traditional Balinese dance narrates the fight between good and evil and is a classic example of the Balinese way of blending myth and history into one reality. Drive to Tampak Siring to visit the unique temple of Gunung Kawi. Set at the bottom of a lush green river valley, these 11th century temples feature 10 rock cut shrines, called candi, carved into the cliff face. The awe inspiring shrines combine ancient Hindu and Buddhist temple attributes. Walk down the many stairs to the temple taking in the views of the terraced rice fields along the way. Continue to Kintamani set around the rim of the Gunung Batur crater. Look out over Bali s most active volcano, Mount Batur, which soars over 1,800 metres into the sky. In the centre is a beautiful turquoise green lake, the largest lake of the island. After a late lunch in a local restaurant with beautiful views, drive back to the south with a stop in Tegalalang to see Bali s most iconic rice terraces.
