A novel turn of the wheel, a new page to discover during every visit; While running steadily cutting through stony paths, the shimmering sun glistens on hanging leaves of gigantic Banyan trees. The air, the best part so far, comes to be addictive; nothing can ever compare to its utmost quality of freshness that puts one’s mind at ease in just a count of seconds. Luckily, you will not be falling off asleep immediately on wheels, but you would, no doubts, love how these Bali’s lush, tranquil landscapes set you to unwind in a perfect accordance: feeling as born free as well as living life to its fullest limit – of joy.
Enjoy delightful morning tea consisting of sweet banana pancake, fruit slices, and hot coffee or tea at Kintamani, a delicate eatery which dwells admirably at Mount Batur’s foothill. Enthralling view over Batur Lake on a side and the volcanic smoke plumes on the other will surely captivate your never-ending fascination. How wonderful nature is, yet the winding cycling course is not yet begun. Sobek Batur Adventure Cycling at Batur Trail commences once you have put on the gears and listened attentively to the safety talk at Padpadan, a sleepy village surrounded by luxuriant greeneries and congenial inhabitants. Then, off you go to unfurl Bali’s endearing serenity enveloped in simple-life countryside.
The first necessary stop of Sobek Batur Adventure Cycling of Batur Trail is the Bamboo Forest at Panempahan Village. While the thrusting yellow bamboos stand erect like no wind can ever tear it down, the accompanying guide recounts enthusiastically the bamboo ecology, what each Balinese Bamboo needs to survive during the hardest seasons. Another hundred cycles of the wheels sweep you off to tranquil rice terrace at Manukaya Village. Few elders are seen on bending position, holding a thicket of rice paddies and clustering out the rice – most of which will be sold, while little will be steamed to be the Balinese’s primary food, “nasi.” After discerning the importance of rice to the natives, you may visit and save in a prayer at Jaga Sari, a vintage Hindu Temple. The following track leads you conveniently to a destined spot for scrumptious luncheon beside the finish point at Pengukur Temple, in Pejeng Village. Having so much to behold in a day yet there is much more to understand than what merely meets the eye, Sobek Batur Adventure Cycling at Batur Trail is obviously an eye-opening experience for true travelers.
If you indulge in a beguiling voyage in a more isolated enclave, Sobek Batur Adventure Cycling at Batukaru is most likely apt for your preferences. Featuring one of the world’s heritage sites, Jatiluwih Village, where the rice terraces are astoundingly sublime, cyclers will have a fond at their heart at the very first sight. Balinese plantations at Kesambi Village render a fruitful moment as well, since you are welcomed to sample the natural bounty of coffee, clove, and cacao. These agricultural benefits have sustained the villagers over the years and, consequently, they have had a special bond to the local residents. For them, it is impossible to miss a day without dominant green hues stretching inside-and-out the sleepy village. But to really interpret their passion for the nature, you can always drop off from bike and join in a friendly neighborhood talk as the sunset is gleaming far beyond leafy-green village trees.
