What to expect

Explore the rarely visited village in Bali, located on the foot of Mt. Abang at the eastern rim of Lake Batur. Here you will find Balinese aboriginal people that are famous for their unique funeral rites, like no other in Bali, there is no cremation here but the body of the deceased placed in a bamboo cage under the Taru Menyan tree until the forces of nature, in particular, the wind has dissolved the body tissues until only the skeleton remains.

Leave early in the morning for your expedition to explore the ancient areas of Bali. This tiny village is located between the lake and the outer crater rim of Mt. Batur, usually called “Desa Bali Aga” as descendants of the original Balinese, the people who pre-date the Hindu Majapahit Kingdom in the 16th century, inhabit this village.

Afterward, cross to Trunyan Village and explore on foot, visiting the temple and their ancient trees of myth, and then continue to Trunyan's final sanctuary in a traditional wooden canoe paddled by the locals as they tell you about their rites of passage.

Next, drive back around the lake to the top of the caldera and then enjoy your lunch with the magnificent view of Mount and Lake Batur.
