If you want to see the greenest green in your life, you’re at the right place! The Campuhan Ridgewalk has the scenery of a jungle or forest rather than that of rice terraces and fields. The hike is really worth it if you’re around Ubud. In this blog post you will find all the information you need before you head out to this trail.
How to get to Campuhan Ridgewalk
If you’re going to Campuhan Ridgewalk for the first time, it might be a bit of a challenge to find the trail. Google Maps knows the location, but you still have to search a bit before you find the exact path. The hike is located in the center of Ubud. If you spot the ‘IBAH luxury villas and spa’ sign, you will see a small sign below saying “Going to the Hill”. If you turn straight into there you will find the carpark at the end of the road. There is also a beautiful old tree near the carpark and other signs pointing out the right way, so you can’t miss it 🙂
