Campuhan Ridge Walk

its about 2,3 Km from Hotel Agung Resort Ubud

Campuhan Ridge Walk is a free and easy nature trek, popular among repeat visitors to the central highland town of Ubud.

the main access is a concrete path just down from this boutique hotel’s main entrance. Smaller letterings under the signage of the Warwick Ibah, bears “Going to The Hill” with an arrow pointing left, and as soon as you take on this path, the verdant surroundings of the Campuhan Valley immediately come to sight, lined by dense tropical foliage.

Pura CampuhanA small bridge over the revered Campuhan River leads to the majestic Pura Gunung Lebah temple complex. Signs before the temple clearly show the directions to follow along the route, which borders the eastern walls of the temple.

 

A few hundred meters and up the slopes from the temple,

the view widens to reveal the vast hills that make up the valley hinterland.

The best time to enjoy the Campuhan Ridge Walk is early morning and late afternoon, when the temperature is cool and when the skies show their best hues during sunrise and sunset.

Slopes as far as the eye can see are an undulating sea of green, covered in tall reed grass, which at times are harvested by the locals for thatched roofing that is typical in traditional Balinese architecture.

Continuing north along the ridge the tall grass transforms into the paddies of the small village of Bangkiang Sidem.

Leisure walkers may take the trek back to Ibah, while the more serious and curious trekkers can continue west towards the outskirts of Bangkiang Sidem,

down to the Sungai Cerik River then climbing up towards the hills of Payogan in the village of Kedewatan. On your way back, relieve your muscles with a great Balinese massage at your Ubud hotel.
