Day 1: Airport – The Nirwana Resort
Arriving at Airport, our guide will pick you up and transfer you to The Nirwana Resort & Spa, Candidasa. After check in, you can get your free time at leisure.

Day 2: Photo Safari Tour
We will start a climbing to the peak of Gumang hill early in the morning at 4 a.m and it can be reached just by 40 minutes climbing from the road on the foot of the hill. The best spot for capturing the sunrise is on the east side of the peak, right on northeast side of the temple. At this point we can start the photo session at 6.15 to the east, we can view the Gunung Rinjani. Afterward, at 6.30 to the west we can view Gunung Agung. After the photo session we drive back to The Nirwana Resort for having breakfast and check out for the next safari tour.

Our driver will drive you to Kastala village where the trekking will be started and pass the Gumung village where the local people make ata (handicraft such as basket, etc). The trekking is begun with green carpets welcome. Walking among rows of rice fields that descend into the valley with Mount Agung looms majestically on the background are the first part of your journey. Other areas of Bali may boast of their terraced rice fields but the Tenganan terraced rice fields with misty Mount Agung on the distant and divided with crystal clear river on the center are surely primus inter pares. After crossing the river that divides the rice field areas the journey is resumed by walking on a steep path among the rice fields on the slope of a hill. At the end of the rice field areas, a winding road will lead you into the forest of Tenganan. Hundreds years old stone path will accommodate your journey through this forest. Sound of chirping birds and rushing winds among the leaves will soothe your ears.

The path will take you pass many small hidden temples to honour the spirit of the nature. Along the path, you will likely encounter a small hut of Tenganan’s resident in which they make tuak (palm beer), taste the rich flavour of fresh tuak directly from the palm trees. When you reach the top of the hill, you will get a bird-eye view of Tenganan village and its surrounding areas. From here a descending stone path will lead you to the Tenganan village. The trekking will end on the gate of Tenganan village. After completing your photo safari session, our guide will take you to local restaurant in Candidasa for lunch. And then we will transfer you to airport for your next destination.
