1. Northern Charm: Lake Bratan, Handara Gate, Waterfall & Swing
Bali is a living postcard, an Indonesian paradise that feels like a fantasy. This private tour is designed for those who wish to visit all the most iconic and photogenic sites you see on postcards and Instagram in the northern part of the islands. On top of snapping pictures, you'll learn about the Balinese culture and history behind those sites and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature. Your first stop early in the morning will be the iconic Lake Beratan. Like Bali's postcards, you will see the majestic temple sitting on a small lake island. This lakeside temple was constructed in honor of Dewi Danu, goddess of the lake, which was formed by a volcanic eruption 30,000 years ago. Your guide will explain this ancient temple's history, the Balinese people, and culture. You will then visit the iconic Handara Gate, well known as the pathway to serenity. Take a wonderful picture in front of Handara Gate with the breathtaking view of green scenery and the gigantic-exotic traditional Balinese gate as your backdrop. Prepare your walking shoes because you will visit the majestic and beautiful Banyumala Twin Waterfall next. The natural pool is inviting with its translucent turquoise waters. Swim in tranquility, listen to the thunderous roar of cascading waters, and take in the sights of the vibrant greenery. Then visit the iconic Wanagiri Hidden Hills, punctuated by a series of whimsical vantage points over Lake Tambingan and Lake Buyan. You will fly over the hill and lakes and experience incredible views on a jungle swing. Do not miss the bird cage and a viewing post shaped like a boat. Customize your experience with options like coffee tasting and traditional massage.
