Tibumana Waterfall:

Tibumana Waterfall Bali is one of the most beautiful hidden waterfalls near Ubud. Luckily, only a few people know about it. It’s getting harder and harder to find secluded places in Bali since tourism is on the rise. When you’ll get closer to Tibumana Waterfall, you’ll notice endless rice fields and palm trees. You may have a chance to take a sneak peak inside the local people’s daily lives. You’ll see Balinese people taking care of their animals or wandering around the rice fields. Definitely something to remember!

Goa Rang Reng Waterfall is a lovely relaxing spot, the peaceful natural surrounds make it an ideal escape from busy traffic-clogged Ubud. Goa Rang Reng flows down at a gentle angle. The appealing falls are not high and are more like a web of steep rapids than a single torrent. There is a natural pool at the top of the waterfall where you can relax and swim.

Kanto Lampo Waterfall

It may not be the most known waterfalls in Bali Kanto Lampo is still a stunning place to visit when exploring the Ubud area. Tucked away in the jungles of the island visiting this waterfall can make an escape to Bali even more complete with a sense of peaceful tranquility that comes over those who visit. The best way to fully immerse in the experience is to wade through the waters to get front row seats to the waterworks it unfurls.

Happy Local - Lunch with Locals :

Before lunch, you will get  a guided tour through the family compound by your host. You will learn that there are more than one family living within the compound.  When a son of the family marries, his wife usually moves into this compound, so a compound is a place for extended families, each with their own sleeping quarters, but otherwise sharing the facilities. You will be served lunch and you can choose to eat with your hands just like the Balinese. Family members drop in to enjoy the food, but will find their place to eat anywhere in the compound. Food is freshly cooked in the family kitchen and you also may learn how to cook it. Selamat Makan.
