Anyone who has visited Bali before will be extremely familiar with the flower offerings with incense sticks that are seen around the island.

Canang Sari (pronounce Cha-nang Sah-ree) is the name of these daily offerings that are placed at the entrances of every home and business in Bali as well as at the temples and even major road junctions.

 

Learn what the different elements of the offerings represent and how to make your own gift to the gods under the guidance of our own experts!

This is a beautiful activity for those who want to understand Balinese culture and also for kids!

Visit a Local School

Ever wanted to know what it feels like to be a rock star?

 

Then just pay a visit to our local school, where throngs of school children will giggle and shriek at the foreigners visiting their school for an English language lesson, and to take a photo with them. We don't charge anything for this, however, we ask that you bring with you something to donate to the school to assist the children in their studies:

 

Items that are useful and often in short supply include: pens, pencils, workbooks and beginners English language tools are always appreciated. 

This is a wonderful way to support the Balinese community and give back to them during your stay here.

Hike Mount Batu Karu

Gunung Batu Karu is Bali's second-highest mountain at 2,276m. Batukaru is worshipped by the Balinese and has a temple, Pura Luhur Batukaru devoted to it. Your start point will be a smaller local temple at the beginning of the rainforest line. The ascent to the top can be as long as a 5-hour hike, most guests will keep it short and only walk 1 hour each way.

 

The thick foliage and dense canopy prevents views and acts like a giant sound dampener. This eerie effect produced when clouds pass through gives another worldly feel, as though you are in an Elven forest from the Lord of the Rings. 

 

Minimum 4-hours return journey starting from Bali Lush with your own private car and tour guide.

 4 hour Hike: Rp 462,000 (each additional hour: Rp 115,500)

Visit a Local Healer

Healers play a big part in Balinese culture and their belief systems so for those interested in learning more about the Balinese way of life, this is a wonderful experience.

 

One of our staff will accompany you to Pak's house and help translate for you. We also prepare an offering for you to make in order for him to receive you with full blessings.
