“There are excellent views of nature and visitors get the chance to see local farmers doing their daily activities such as cultivating rice as well as a waterfall scene,” said I Nyoman Nuarta, Chairman of the Indonesian Tour Guide Association.
When we say that this nature destination in Bali is famous, we mean it.
Former US President Barack Obama and his family visited the village and the scenery of the Jatiluwih rice terraces have landed on Google Doodle on June 29, 2020.
To preserve the breathtaking magic of the area, locals are meticulous about maintaining the traditional irrigation system of Balinese rice paddy fields which incorporates Hindu values such as striking a balance between God, man, and nature.
In fact, the Subak Desa Jatiluwih is a cultural world heritage site awarded by UNESCO in 2012.
‘Subak’ is the island’s tradition of continuing its rice field irrigation system from one generation to the next.
The meaning is reflected in the rice terraces that have made it onto the Instagram feeds of travelers who have visited the site.
You would be wrong to assume that all there is to do at this famous Balinese nature destination is to see rows of green and our Jatiluwih rice terraces travel guide will show you the many activities to do here.
