We going toward east Bali to visit Bali elephant park in Bakas village and continue by visiting Ubud area . It was great and wonderful day , hot and shiny day .
Bakas Elephant Camp
our first stop was in Bakas Elephant Camp , approximately 1,5 hours drive from Kuta . We were drive through the south coast on highway toward east . Traffic were fine and not so much trouble along the road . Arrive in the east , we enter toward north from the main road into Bakas village . Wonderful small village road with great rice terrace landscape and the view of the highest volcano in front of us . In Bakas Elephant Camp they take 30 minutes elephant ride through special elephant trek in the camp and also taking picture with Orang Utan . It was great adventure to start the tour indeed .
After lunch at the Camp which is already a part of the package , we continue toward Ubud . First stop before arrive in Ubud was in the hidden waterfall , Bali Kanto Lampo waterfall . The warterfall location is in the center of Gianyar region . Unlike others waterfall which is mostly lies in the mountain side , but this waterfall is just near by the city of Gianyar . The waterfall source is coming from the irrigation canal , the water is flooding and fall down into the rice through the cascade . Its a new hidden site that could be very popular in the future . Sadly will not be hidden site anymore when a big number of tourists coming because if the popularity .
Tegallalang Rice terrace and Coffee farm .
Another stop we made is Tegallalang rice terrace . Located in Ubud district , about 40 minutes drive from Kanto Lampo waterfall . Tegallalang rice terrace is the most famous rice terrace in Bali , due to the location is right in the center of tourist destination . Tegallalang rice terrace is small rice terrace but with very steep terrace from the hill down to the river . After the rice terrace we visit the coffee farm and having coffee break , testing coffee luwak which is the most expensive coffee in the world .
Last place the we stop is Ubud Monkey Forest . The small forest in the center of Ubud town as the habitat of over 600 monkeys . The forest is protected as a conservation forest and open for public from 9 am to 6 pm . Around the well maintain forest there are good pathway to see around the forest and also through the solid wooden bridge on the river . We were spend sometimes to walking around the forest , seeing the monkeys and taking picture with them . Its quite friendly monkeys and get use to the visitors . We leave the forest before dark and drive toward the Hotel . Ubud Monkey Forest was our last place that we visit during our Bali Elephant Ride Combination Tour package , before we heading back to Hotel .
