This being part of Bali au Naturel, the whole retreat is 100% clothing-optional and excellent for fast sun tanning at high altitude, without the coastal heat.
The surrounding area is traditional agriculture (rice paddies, coffee, vegetables, fruits and flowers), and mostly plants and trees that do not grow at lower altitude. An ideal place for trekking, hiking and bicycling. At a short distance you will find the tallest and longest inland bridge in Bali, stretching over the Tukad Bangkung Valley, a popular local tourist spot, and the famous Pura (Temple) Puncak Mangu, one of the essential temples of Bali, build in the 10th century and now a national monument. The very large Nungnung Waterfalls are 15 minutes drive away. It is a beautiful place surrounded by natural rain forests. it has very clear water and fresh. To reach the waterfall, there are long stairs with good handrails. Please make sure you are fit. Wear sports shoes and a comfortable outfit. There are toilets, small warungs in the parking area. You can swim too but please always be careful as the water beat very big and strong. Another spot of interest is Bali’s largest and oldest coffee processing plant that can be visited from May till September only.
Unseenbali offers day excursions to the mountain retreat with visits of the above, followed by lunch and a relaxing afternoon by the pool. This day excursion is available only to guests staying in Bali au Naturel, some 30 km away. Occasionally overnight stays are possible, with full board. With the exception of the waterfalls, it is unlikely you will meet other tourists.
This tour is a nice alternative to the more traditional tours that are on offer in Northern and Eastern Bali (see www.unseenbali.tours)
