We head up over the west side of the Sidemen valley, enjoying beautiful views of the Sidemen valley and Gunung Agung. We take the scenic route through Muncan winding across country to the clean upland city of Bangli, where we visit Pura Kehen temple, and a neatly laid out Bali Aga (old-tradition Balinese) village.

Arriving at Tirta Empul, we have the possibility of joining Balinese on pilgrimage to ritually bathe beneath a series of gushing springs said to heal and cleanse all manner of impediments. After bathing, we pray at the temple above, where an exquisite spring of clear, clear, water, sipped by swallows, bubbles up through swirling sand.

We make a short visit to Pura Mengening, a quiet and powerful temple and springs close by. On our way back, time permitting, we take the path down to some ancient Buddhist meditation caves at Gunung Kawi, An hour’s drive down through the historically important Pejeng village, brings us home in another 50-60 minutes. (Full day, departure 9.00 am, packed lunch and return for about 17.30).
