“Jatiluwih village in Penebel District, north of Tabanan, has paddy fields following the contours of terraced land against the background of spellbinding Mount Batukaru and Mount Agung use traditional Balinese irrigation known as subak, Bali's community-based water control management system. Lies at an altitude of 700 meters, the cool atmosphere of more original beautiful Jatiluwih is better than the most well known Tegallalang which has plenty of cafes and souvenir shops. Jatiluwih is one of the five rice terraces that describe the "Subak" water management system which has gain acknowledgement from UNESCO as part of the world's cultural heritage. To preserve the largest area of 53,000 hectares agriculture fields on the island, Tabanan Regency Administration would not allow the development of star-rated and city hotels anymore, unless tourism facilities with a commitment to environmental conservation would be allowed with 30 percent of buildings and 70 percent had to be left naturally as paddy field or plantation. The administration has also decided 300-hectare protected paddy field zone with a 100-hectare housing zone lies outside the protected zone. For visitors it is possible to visit the 300-hectare on foot (about 3,5 hr trekking) or alternatively with an e-bike tour that the local villagers organize since 2017 (about 1 h).”

“Not as famous as the other temples of Bali, I personnally love Pura Luhur Batu Karu. This temple is the oldest of the island, and does not get crowded with tourists unlike the other sites. A beautiful and romantic visit. If you happen to visit the Jati Luwih ricefields nearby, do not hesitate to take the route all the way to that temple as well.”
