Bedugul · Gitgit · Singaraja · Candi Kuning · Part 1
Day 4 of my trip to Bali, I explored the tranquil rural countryside of paradise, its mountains and a spiritual experience at a waterfall.
In Bedugul, an attractive mountain resort located 850 meters above sea level, serene Lake Beratan fills the ancient crater of Mount Batukaru where the locals honor the goddess of the lake at a temple built on small strip of land.
I also walked through the nearby tropical rainforest to see Gitgit Waterfall before going on to the old town of Singaraja, Bali's former capital, on the north coast of Bali. We then travelled along the coast towards Lovina and its fabulous black sand beach for lunch before continuing back through magnificent sceneries en route back to my villa.
In the mountains, vegetation like cabbages, maize and potatoes changes depending on atmospheric levels. Higher still, the countryside is alpine with mosses, creepers and ferns. Along the way, I took a pit stop at the Candi Kuning fruit and flower market with its exotic wild orchids, roses and even strawberries.
