Last Days on the Motorbike

From Bedugul I rode back to Kalibukbuk stopping at another of the GitGit waterfalls along the way. This is a picture of the 2nd set of waterfalls in this area that I have visited.

I checked back in the hotel in Kalibukbuk and rode down to a Pura Pulaki temple just for something to do to fill the day. The following morning I made the long ride all the way down to Ubud and back to Kalibukbuk.

I passed the volcano Gunung Batur on the way to reach Gunnung Kawi that is a number of shrines that are cut into a cliff face. I did not really find it that impressive of a site but the area was really pretty. I also enjoyed talking to a man about the rice along the stairway down to the shrine. He explained to me the higher rice was the more expensive rice and took a couple of months longer to grow. Here is another picture of rice.

After Gunnung Kawi I made my way to Goa Gajah which had a ancient fountain and a cave with the entrance being through the mouth of some mean looking creature.

I talked to a guy at Goa Gajah that was a owner of a guesthouse in Ubud and after talking a bit to him decided I would stop there for lunch and then took the long ride back to Kalibukbuk.

  1. The waterfall and rice field pictures are very pretty. The entrance to the cave is different. Enjoy keeping up with your travels.
