The Waka Land Cruise Tours ( valid for minimum 02 person )
A rain forest camp and restaurant deep in the mountains of Bali - Gunung Batukaru. Your journey to the soul of Bali is one of comfort excitement and adventure. We travel in a legendary customized land rover - only six people together with a Balinese expert guide and driver. Air conditioned, comfortable and the route through scenic country side is not strenuous.
You visit the unusual and traditional -you see the Balinese people as they work pray and play sometimes, smiling with hellos, sometimes sombre. You traverse spectacular country side-slowly and in comfort. Take photos you only dreamed of taking.
The trip is not arduous as there are plenty of stops a long the way-looking-looking. You visit an amazing quarry of stones where it seems time has stood still for centuries. You pass temples and small forgotten villages and shrines and always the mountains are in the distance - getting closer. A stop at a small farm to see the crops ( vanilla, coffee, cocoa, cloves ) and the local animals - there we serve coffee and tea with cakes from the baskets we carry on the roof of the car.
The hot spring in the rice fields where local people bathe and have done so for a long long time. The endless beauty of the rice terrace; green or golden brown - depending on harvest time. See the amazing irrigation system and the rivers that flow down to the sea. The vehicle climbs to over 900 meters and you are above the rice bowl of Jatiluwih and the plains of Bali.
The mountain air is cooler and you are in an area so different - its not anything like the Bali you are staying in. The forests have turned into bamboo jungles and ferns abound - the people change and its here you find the Waka Camp and restaurant. A restaurant built from local bamboo in the middle of nowhere serving delicious Balinese mountain food - not quite 'haute cuisine' but almost. Great food, good wine and cognac with your coffee - where are you? In the mountains, in a bamboo restaurant, high in a forest - miles from nowhere, the soul of Bali.
There are tracks and paths and cool mountain water, wild orchids and birds and an overall stillness. Relaxed, happy, and different, you are then taken back to your hotel by luxury Land Rover after a very remarkable day.
You will remember this special journey through the 'remarkable, unseen Bali'
