Full day Barong Kintamani Tour
Dances are the major part of Balinese culture and the Barong and Keris dance which is performed every morning at Batubulan Village, is one of the best known and loved. The story is about the eternal fight between good and evil: the evil Rangda (a mythological monster) battling with the good Barong (a mythological lion). After the show, continue to Gunung Kawi temple at Sebatu, and terraced rice field at Tegal Lalang. A stop is made in Kintamani for lunch perched dramatically on top of the crater rim of Mount Batur Volcano, where you will have breathtaking views of the crater, lake, lava flows, and volcanic peaks. Enroute pass through many of Bali's famous handicraft villages such as Mas for woodcarving, beautiful Ubud for paintings, Celuk for intricate gold and silverware, or perhaps a batik factory for some lovely locally made fabric. Your return journey will take you off the beaten track past beautiful countryside, and Monkey Forest at the fabulous village atmosphere of Ubud, known as the artistic heart of Bali.
