First stop was the Tenenungan waterfall. There’s someone in a little hut on the road approaching the falls where you pay 5000 rupiah (0.50c Australian) to get into the site.
The roads wind through the countryside, up and down hills, past fields and terraces of rice, tobacco and fruit.
The temple of Tirta Empul was small but still impressive. The water flows from the holy spring into pools used for religious ceremony and bathing.
Next we had a long ride up into the hills along a pot-holed dusty track past farms and through villages, where the local children ran out to the road to shout hello. We stopped for (a very expensive) lunch, but what a view to take in while having something to eat.
Gunung Kawi is a fairly big temple down in a valley surrounded by the forest and rice terraces. The older parts of the temple and tombs are carved out of the rock face. Entrance is 15000 rupiah ($1.50 Australian). This includes the use of a fetching sarong to wear, but it is a religious site so traditional clothing to cover up is a must to enter.
