– Pura Lempuyang, Temple of Purity on Mount Seraya

We drive to the striking white sandstone temple, at the upper base of Mount Seraya, about 1 hour from Nirarta. At this starting point of the Pura Lempuyang complex, with its white dragon-lined staircase, we set our intention for our pilgirmage,

After prayers and offerings we begin the long hike and climb up many, many steps, through changing vegetation, and shifting views of mountains and sea, past the monkeys, to the mists and clouds, frequently cloaking the sweet and peaceful upper Lempuyang temple towards the summit of Mount Seraya.

Packed lunch, offerings, and, if time, after the descent, a dip in the spring water of Tirta Gangga, before we head home. (Departure 9.00am return approximately 17.00.)


'What a wonderful day! Peace, quiet, vigorous hiking through beautiful country, and piece of the real Bali, too!'
– D M, USA, 2006

'This was a really special day. Hardly a tour in the conventional sense, more a sacred journey, full of personal meaning and blessings.'
– A R, Australia, 2007
