Description

The Campuhan Ridge Walk is one of the top attractions in Bali‘s Ubud region. On this walking tour, I‘ll help you see beyond the beautiful green vistas and steep gorges, and share some of the stories most people miss. Starting near the Pura Gunung Lebah Temple, nestled in the lush hillside, this tour will guide you along the one-kilometre stretch to the Ridge Walk‘s northern starting point and back. Along the way, I‘ll share insight into Balinese culture and traditions. You‘ll hear why a shrine is never built with more than eleven tiers, and find out about the origins of the name Ubud. I‘ll give you a brief history of Bali and reveal who now lives in the Ubud Palace. As you walk, you‘ll quickly see why this is one of the most photographed destinations in Ubud, frequented by joggers, artists, locals and visitors, including Anthony Bourdain, Mick Jagger, David Bowie and Julia Roberts. Step back in time on this Bali walking tour to hear the story of Ubud and the origins of its villagers. Along the way, you‘ll have the opportunity to: • Find out why the famous Gunung Lebah Temple was built • Listen to the story of the renowned Indian Mystic who left an indelible legacy throughout Bali • See the merging of the two rivers and learn of their mystical meanings and cultural significance • Hear the history of the ridge and find out why it‘s considered important to the local communities • Discover why the Ridge is sometimes totally overgrown and at other times it’s neat and tidy Join me on this walk to better understand why Ubud is considered an artistic, holistic and cultural centre in Bali. By the end of the tour, you‘ll have a new appreciation for Balinese history, traditions and the Ubud way of life. At certain times the track can become overgrown in the wet season. The route is roughly 20-minutes one way, but can take much longer depending on how often you stop for photos. The tour covers the walk up and down the ridge, but you‘re welcome to stop at the top where there are many shops and cafes.
