“The holy hike of the East”

Lempuyang temple, meaning the highest lantern, is one of the highest and sacred temples in Bali. It sits atop Belibis mountain 1,058 metres above sea level. It is a 2.5 hours hike to the temple at the top. This spiritual journey will wind through misty ancient pandan forests, vanilla vines, native orchids, along a combination of grassy paths lined with lemon grass and steep rocky tracks. Once you reach the summit you are rewarded with breath taking views over looking the east of Bali from Karangasem valley to the ocean and across to mighty Mount Agung, Bali’s famous volcano. After a traditional ginger and ginseng morning coffee and some jajan cakes, you will accompany your guide into the temple where the priest will bless you with holy water collected from the insides of the bamboo growing near the temple. Your descent will be via the 1700 steps and passing many other sacred temples and places of spiritual importance. When you reach the bottom you will be picked up and driven 15 minutes to Bali Asli for a well-earned megibung lunch, served in the style of the Royal family of Karangasem.
 

“Biking from the mountain to the beach”

Our Biking guide Pak Mudi, will drive you up to the small
villages in the foot hills of Mount Agung. Here you will
mount your bikes and glide (mostly down hill!) through
rice fields, snake fruit forests and small towns all the way
to White Sand Beach, where you will enjoy snorkelling
and a simple seafood lunch.

The Cooking School

Bali Asli’s cooking classes and adventures are available most days or on request.
Our classes run with a minimum of 2 and up to a maximum of 10 students.
Nothing at Bali Asli is set in stone and we are happy to tailor our programs to suit your itinerary or corporate / special event.
The cooking school runs unique classes themed on “a day in the life of……”; every class includes a Bali best adventure into local areas off the beaten track. Whether it is learning how to plant rice or plough with a cow, fishing in a jukung canoe and cooking on an open fire or making cocktails from cashew nut wine, our students always leave with fond memories and new skills to experiment with when they return home.

For those who would rather have our chefs cook for them, the adventures can also be enjoyed before returning to Bali Asli for a feast.

Bali Asli Restaurant Menu

Most of our ingredients are either grown in our garden, in our neighbour’s garden or purchased from the local market.
Our menu changes almost every day, depending on what our chefs find at the market early in the morning or from our garden or what our neighbours bring to us on the day.
The menu offers traditional Balinese food prepared in an authentic style kitchen. We cook on wood-fired mud brick stoves, allowing the real flavours of Bali to shine.
