Definitely one of the most beautiful and iconic experiences to enjoy in Bali, Swinging over the Balinese Jungle has become a sensation among influencers and visitors. Although this is not an activity for the lighthearted, height options ranging from 10m to 78m above ground are also available. Not a fan of heights? At Bali Swing, you can also chill out in one of the 'Hanging Nests', scattered around the playground. They are located between huge palm trees, accessible via a ladder that is removed during photos. So, simply pick a landscape to swing over, like the jungle, Lake Tambingan, or a rice terrace, and be ready for the most breathtaking swinging of your life.
At the far north side of Bali lies the traditional village of Sambangan, whose lush jungles and waterfalls - known as the Secret Gardens, make up the perfect setting for nature exploration and relaxation. The Gardens include a wide array of natural pools, cascading waterfalls hidden in the rain-forest, and plenty of spots to picnic. Aling Aling is the first of the seven waterfalls of the Secret Gardens and it's a 10-15 minutes walk from the entrance. Although you can't swim at this waterfall, as it's considered holy, you can take a dive at Kroya Waterfall and fully enjoy the 5m jump or the 12m slide!
Take a Bath & Breakfast with Elephants. This is an activity offered at Mason Elephant Park & Lodge and it includes washing, feeding and bareback riding atop of elephants as they splash and play in their bathing lake. A lush buffet breakfast completes the experience, which you can enjoy while watching the elephants playing in the lake. There are several packages available, but we recommend going for the Bathe & Breakfast with Elephants one, without the Safari Ride.
If you are staying far away from this place, you can set up a pickup area and they will pass by to pick you up. Of course, keep in mind that there are fixed hours that they pass by from every major Balinese town. Are you a fan of photography? Then, you will be delighted to hear about Pinggan Village. It's one of the hidden gems of Bali, that has somehow managed to escape the tourist crowds, yet. It offers one of the best sunrise views on the island, that even compares to the sunrise of Mt. Batur. The village is located in the Kingtamani region, northeast on Bali Island, while its location, 1.300 meters above sea level, creates a unique sight.
Although you may notice that most taxi drivers are not very willing to take you there, there are a few tours that organize frequent sunrise tours to this area. Moreover, Pinggan Village is close to the wonderful Sekumpul Waterfall, the stunning temples Pura Ulan Danu Batur, and the renowned Gateway to Heaven, Pura Lempuyang Luhur.
