Trekking in North Bali

A. EASY

Walk Around the Plantation
MMP’s site is one of the best mountain areas on the island. It is located on the edge of a plateau above three breathtakingly beautiful lakes. The almost five hectares hilly but very fertile soil allows just about every tropical tree, plant, flower or vegetable to grow easily. We believe this maximum one and a half hour trekking on our 3 miles walking path will be an excellent introduction to the island's flora and you are guaranteed to spot some of the indigenous birds. A short introductory guided walk is offered to every new guest on the plantation. Longer, self-guided, walks can be taken at any point in time.
Duration: 45 minutes to 60 minutes.

Banyumala Waterfall
This exciting trek takes you through a number of plantations, growing coffee, mandarins, vegetables, flowers - to name but a few. You'll also pass some different bamboo groves. After a while, the land becomes less cultivated and you enter a forest. There are many panoramic sights to enjoy after which you will reach the Banyumala waterfall where you can swim in the fresh mountain water. This waterfall consists of a number of streams pouring down various rocks with a vertical drop of more than 25 meters. There is a beautiful and very clean lake surrounded by dense vegetation. Cicadas are often serenading the visitors of this fall who on a warm day find the water a great way of cooling off. Afterwards, you venture further in a local village where you are picked up by car or scooter (whatever you prefer) for a nice breezy ride back to MMP.

This is MMP’s most strenuous hike for which you are richly rewarded when you exit the rainforest as the other side of Bali’s central mountains and before arriving in the breathtakingly beautiful Jatiluwih valley and village. This village is well known for its beautiful landscape consisting of what many consider to be Bali's most beautiful rice terraces.
