Welcome to the beautiful island of Bali. All your preconceptions of a paradise island are to be found here. Blue oceans, long stretches of idyllic beaches, majestic mountains, acres upon acres of rolling rice terraces and interesting people with exotic cultures. What if you can explore the island with a day long trek while also helping locals in need? Our Responsible Trekking: Discover North Bali excursion allows you to do just that.
Awake early to the dark early morning sky to make the most of your trek. Be sure to wear a sports jacket, sunglasses, a hat and sturdy shoes and have sunscreen, insect repellent and swimwear packed. You will be needing everyone of those items.
Your trek will begin at around 8am from the top of Songan, a lakeside village. Your experienced guides as well as local villagers will make sure you don’t stray off course. Because of the scenery, it is easy to understand why you can stray away. The path is home to beautiful vegetation that seem to light up the sky just by itself. Not only that, you will venture along rolling hills and discover remote local villages, hidden amid the tall green trees. Don’t wander off. Stay the course!
Your trek covers an area so serene that your breathing and footsteps will be the source most of the noise as you hike along on. As you make your way up and down the area’s hills, be sure to catch views of Lake Batur and the Indian Ocean in the horizon. These are great Kodak moment views and serve as great rewards for the effort you have put in so far. A stop to Cangkeng Village en-route allows you to rest those weary legs.
After your hike, enjoy your well deserved lunch at the coast. Yes, you can swim in the warm Bali ocean waters if you wish. Or relax beachside. The choice is yours; after all, you did just endure an eventful trek.
We did mention that by taking this trek, you are helping towards a good cause. Your proceeds will go to Yayasan Masa Depan Untuk Anak Anak, a non-profit organization that aids the people of Muntigunung to improve their living conditions by providing water catchment systems and enabling locals to generate sustainable income.
