Jatiluwih Rice Terrace

Jatiluwih is a stunning representation of Bali’s terraced rice fields. These terraces incorporate a unique irrigation system where water flows from one level to the next (very traditional).

Jatiluwih Rice Terrace is located in Tabanan about two hours from Denpasar. The name comes from the word “Jati” which means “real/beautiful”. It’s certainly that!

The fields in this region are special because they have the beautiful backdrop of Mount Batur and Mount Agung. In fact, the area is so appreciated, it was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

If you’re lucky, visit during the Petoyan ceremony which is held every 210 days (Bali calendar). This ceremony holds the sacred Wali Pendet dance, as well as other traditional practices.

Visiting Jatiluwih Rice Terrace is easy – the area is equipped with parking and bathroom facilities. As well as many restaurants for you to enjoy food and drink with the beautiful green panorama. The best time to visit is before dry season ends, when the fields become dry and dull.
