The Tegalalang Rice Terraces are without a doubt one of Bali's most picturesque tourist destinations.

Travelers now stop there as they navigate Bali's pristine beaches, soaring mountains, and smoldering volcanoes. The sight of the lush green rice paddies that seem to go on forever is truly breathtaking.

The breathtaking Tegalalang Rice Terrace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is a part of the Cultural Landscape of Bali Province, is made up of cascading emerald-green fields cultivated by local rice farmers.

The subak (traditional Balinese cooperative irrigation system), which according to history was handed down by a revered holy man named Rsi Markandeya in the eighth century, is depicted in scenes of rice paddies.

  • The Tegalalang rice terrace alone provides a beautiful view that stretches out in front of you and away to the rice paddies on the valley's slopes.

  • It is common for tourists to stop and take pictures in this cool and windy high roadside location.

  • Once you reach Tegalalang Rice Terrace, you can take in the view from the top or hike down and back up the opposite side.

  • My advise hiking down. It will take you anywhere between 30 minutes and 1.5 hours to thoroughly explore the area. Take water and sunscreen, please!

When in the rice paddies, you can see the water trickling through the bare earth and along terraced channels.

Be careful not to slip and end up in one of the paddies because the ground is rather soft and muddy and you don't realize how narrow the walkways between the terraces are.

Get ready to perspire once you enter the rice terrace! You might get muddy as you make your way up and down the terrace's crooked, grassy paths.

But a trip to Tegalalang wouldn't be complete without posing in front of the I Love Bali sign against the Tegalalang rice fields.

You would want to take pictures of this location constantly because it is so beautiful and has such breathtaking views.
