It is the biggest rainforest in Bali, with many big and small spring waters to support the water irrigation of Tabanan.  

Pick up time at 07:30 from the area of Nusa Dua. Your guide will drive you through the village of Mengesta on little country roads. Then you will arrive at the parking area of Bujangga temple, where everyone will prepare themselves to begin their adventure!

Your adventure will start walking through the jungle. We suggest you to use trekking shoes or sport shoes, long pants, long sleeves t-shirt to protect you from some plants in the jungle.

In this wild adventure you will not feel scared because our guides will be interactive with you, with clue questions, while they teach you how the Balinese people respect nature and some kinds of trees, which are necessary for our life as well. 

And also your guide will explain to you about the structure of the tropical forest, its many kinds of animals, the importance to keep the life of the trees for our further life and for herbal medicaments, as well as for vegetables and to keep always wet the river during all seasons to support the water irrigation, avoiding the erosion and support very well our O2.

After enjoying the coffee break at the half of your adventure, we will then continue the adventure crossing the Palungan River. Batukaru volcano had an eruption more than 2000years ago, so the structure of this river is due to the boiled stones which lead the water flowing down, making it a stone river. No one knows this secret issue yet.

After crossing the jungle, we will overview the mountains Adeng and Sangiang with their green forest. Then we will visit a local family to see how they still make red sugar as a home industry. This is also a good contribution for their family economy.
