How did you get here? We rented a car in Ubud, and Jatiluvius was one of the many stops on our 4 week trip to Bali.
There are also people who go all the way by scooter, and if you feel like it, you’re welcome to do that. It is a long and winding road, but it is also very scenic, and there are many interesting stops along the way.
You can also participate in the day tour. I am sure there are many stalls near your hotel or even in your hotel where you can buy a tour.
Please note that depending on the time of year, the rice terraces may be at harvest time and you may not see the beautiful lush green rice fields you imagine. Nevertheless, Jatiluvich is a beautiful place anyway.
The best way to explore and enjoy these amazing rice fields is to take the time to walk the many trails. There are routes for all levels and whichever route you choose, you will have a beautiful walk in the middle of the rice fields.
Below is a map of the hiking trails of Jatiluwih, marked in different colors. They are all well signposted, but if you get lost, there is always someone to point you in the right direction.

A white trail
Length: 5,5 km
Estimated time: 3-4 hours
Information: You can also cycle on this route, and there are several varungas along the way if you want something to eat and drink.
The white trail is the longest and, frankly, I’d skip it if you don’t have much time and you’re only there to admire the beautiful views of the rice terraces. The white trail is nice, but most of the time you are hiking through the woods.
Tips. However, if you decide to take an extra walk, start very early in the morning and follow the red and blue path first to get the best of Jatiluwih’s terraced rice fields, and then the white path when people start to show up outside.

Unfortunately we were here during the rainy season (December) and had rain and dark skies on both days, but despite the rain Jatiluwih was stunningly beautiful! This UNESCO World Heritage site in Bali did not disappoint.
Walking along the white trail, we saw cacao trees and other exotic fruit trees like the durian.

On a white path you pass the Hindu temple Pura Luhur Besikalung. But if you don’t want to do a long circular walk and still want to visit the temple, it’s just a few steps from the Blue Path. Look at the map, the temple is marked with the number 25.
Length: About 3 km
Weather: About two hours.
Information: Varungas are scattered along the track.
On the map below we have marked our recommended buckle in purple. It is a combination of red, blue and white markings.
There are two entrances, one of which is the main entrance to No. 6, where we ended our walk. They both paid and we didn’t know because we went with number 16 both times and neither of us saw or paid anything? But payment should not be a problem as it is usually very affordable, if I am not mistaken it is Rs. 40,000 per person.
In any case, we advise you to start at no. 16 and follow the red path until the rice fields where you will meet the blue path. Follow the blue trail which makes a short loop until you eventually end up at the same points again.
No. 21 is a very rustic and simple jam, but it has a beautiful view of the rice fields if you want a drink.
On the red trail of Jatiluwih, you walk along a narrow sandy path scattered across the grounds while listening to the soothing sound of water flowing across the terraced rice paddies.
The view of the surrounding area was so picturesque! Since it rained the first day, we came back the next day to do the red trail early in the morning. We had beautiful rice terraces where the farmers worked in the rice fields.

At the end of the path, close to the main entrance of no. 6, is this varung with a breathtaking view of the rice fields. Because we got here early, the barbarians were still closed. But according to critics and looking at the pictures on Tripadvisor, they seem to serve good food.
That’s great. If you have some time, you will find this beautiful Terjun Yeh Ho waterfall a few kilometers from Jatiluwih!
You can walk from the parking lot to the falls, and if you’re as lucky as we were, there’s room for all of us.
Here you are, we wish you lots of fun as you walk through the beautiful rice terraces of Jatiluvii in Bali!
