Your Bali Compact Tour wraps up today. Start the day with a visit to Taman Ujung Water Palace
near Amlapura, which was originally built in 1919. The 1963 explosion of Mount Agung destroyed most of the palace. However, it has since been painstakingly reconstructed to its former glory. Next, visit Tirta Gangga
which means 'water of the Gangges'. This sacred water palace was built in the early twentieth century by the last king of Karangasem. It boasts many decorative ponds and fountains, lush plant life and natural bathing pools.
Spend time to relax and have lunch at a local restaurant, which offers amazing views over the rice field area of Tirta Gangga
and the slopes of Mount Agung. With this incredible view, enjoy a feast of truly authentic Balinese food.
After a short transfer to Kastela
, near Bebandem, set off on a two-hour trek through the rice fields down to Tenganan, one of several ancient villages in Bali (good walking shoes are required).
At the end of the trek, explore Tenganan
. The village is home to the Bali Aga people, Bali’s first inhabitants before the arrival of the Majapahit Dynasty people who came from Java. Experience the village’s unique architecture and observe the weaving of traditional ikat patterns and traditional basket weaving.
In the late afternoon, be transferred to Denpasar Airport for evening return flight.
