Besakih Temple and Karangasem - Private Tour
This tour takes you to Besakih Temple at the foot of Mouth Agung, through rice field terraces and on to Bali's scenic East Coast. First stop is Kerta Gosa, the hall of justice, in Klungkung, which dates from the 18th century.
You trip continues up into the mountains, stopping to admire the view from Bukit Jambul over rice terraces with the sea glistening in the distance. Then its into Besakih Temple, almost 1,000m above sea level. Besakih is the "Mother Temple" of Bali and probably originated as a prehistoric sanctuary where offerings were made to the god of Mount Agung.
Back at sea level, we visit Tenganan - one of the original Bali "Aga" villages where traditions have changed little over the centuries. Our drive continues through the beach resort of Candi Dasa to Kusamba, a small fishing village, followed by Goa Lawah (Bat Cave) where the walls of the cave literally vibrate with thousands of Bats. The cave is considered to be holy, with shrines and a temple protecting to entrance.

"The tour guide and driver were very good and knowledgeable. We did find the number of stops during the trip (9) excessive and think that some could have been omitted. It would have been nice to have some prewarning about additional small costs for suitable clothing on temple visits."
