Jatiluwih rice fields
Penebel, Central Bali
The Jatiluwih rice fields are the largest and most picturesque of all of the rice terraces in Bali. Once a UNESCO Cultural Heritage site candidate, the rice fields cover over 600 hectares, which follow the cascading hillside of the highlands and are well-maintained by the local village’s subak cooperative.
Entrance fee to the main area requires a 40,000 IDR payment per person. Besides that you pay an extra 5,000 IDR for the car park. The fee goes to the local village cooperative fund and maintenance of the trekking paths.
But you don’t have to hike far to see the impressive 180-degree ‘sea of green’. Just halfway up along the paddy roadside, you will find a platform from where you will have an incredible view on the layers of rice. And if you’re lucky, you can see the Mount Agung volcano in the background!
