Campuhan Ridge Walk
Enjoying the Amazing Nature of Ubud Along Ridge Walk, This Campuhan ridge walk is the best place for you to experience the trekking activity. It’s more than only hiking trail, through its path will accompany you to explore Ubud in amazing natural side. You will feel a peaceful atmosphere attack your mind after entering this ridge. You may say this place is like the heaven of beauty with full of romantic impression in every single view. Just looking at the wonderful elephant grass swaying to the wind, catching the picture of coconut tree stand remarkably among the rice field, and also hearing the sound of insects and gurgling river are the great hidden treasure that you would find along the trail. Actually before you can reach this ridge walk, a bonus will wait for you in front of gates. You are welcomed by one of the larger Temples nearby of the meeting point of the rivers; it’s obviously stunning.
Surprisingly, along your trekking will see one and more old Balinese farmers doing some work with their field. If you’re lucky, perhaps you will see a sketch of Agung Mountain (The biggest mountain Bali) from your distance. Follow your path; it will lead you to meet more beautiful rice field and its terrace, so incredibly exotic. This wonderful walk also takes a moment through a traditional village and plenty of small art galleries.
You will see this kind of short trip with fully art and nature package inside. In the middle of your trekking, you can break the trip and enjoy yourself with a delicious coffee, fresh juices and meal in the local café in some spot along your way. The Campuhan ridge walk may an answer for those of you who want to get away from the busy road in Ubud town and try to explore into real countryside.
Don’t forget: your camera, a bottle of water (the closest shop is about 1.5-2km from the start) sunglasses and sunscreen, and a hat could come in useful too. Take some money also if you’d like to buy some art or some food at the cafe.
Best time to go: early morning, around 7:30. I went at 9am and that was a bit too hot. It’s June now, so the sun rises at around 6am, so anytime after that is great.
