This stunning rice terrace is known as Tegallalang Rice Terrace or Ceking rice terrace , is located in Ubud district . Approximately 30 minutes from Ubud center . The view can be seen from the street along the way to Batur Volcano . For Balinese actually Teggalalang isn’t a really special sites to visit , Tegallalang rice terrace is just one of the thousand rice terraces around Bali . But due to the strategic location made this rice terrace become the most popular place to stop over in Ubud .
Rice agriculture is a biggest industry in Bali before tourism coming . Most of the family depending on rice agriculture . Now in since the tourism are growing fast , most of the rice field are turned become property business . This much happening in the places as a favorite place for tourist to live . I can say south Bali has a biggest area of rice field but its gone . Southern district such as Denpasar and Badung region is the most populated place in Bali . This is bring a negative infact to the agriculture industry . Not much space left for farming , rice field are gone become residential area . Its sad but who can control the change .
Tegallalang rice terrace is one of noble and stunning rice that you should made short stop over . This site can be very easy to combine with most of the tour itinerary . Because of the location is just right in the middle of the most tourist destination .
Tegallalang Rice Terrace entrance fees
10.000 rupiah for entering the rice terrace area and if you wish to do trekking there will be another donation charge . This donation will asked by the owner of each terrace you will enter . Its privately owned by some families there . You might be asking why you have to pay again ! No no the 10.000 ticket that you pay is just to see the view from the street . But if you want enter further inside the rice field , you have to help the farmers to maintain their terraces . Because having a walk along their terraces will couse damage to their terraces . We actually can’t walk in to prevent the terrace from landslide but they allow you with some donation . Its fare right !
