Bali’s Lush Green Gunung Kawi Temple: A Travel Photo

The absolutely gorgeous Gunung Kawi temple tucked amidst pristine greenery

For some reason, I have been thinking about Indonesia and more particularly Bali for the last couple of days. The lush greenery, the gorgeous nature (beaches, volcanoes, forests, national parks and more), the smiling people, the laidback culture, the delicious food and coffee (kopi) and its temples and rich Hindu connection gives it a special flavor like no other. A beautiful way to explore this stunning island is by bicycle or motorcycle and there is so much more to it than its southern surf, beaches and luxury hotels, which is what most visitors experience during a typical Bali Holiday.

There is Besakih, Kintamani, the West Bali National Park and so many other places to explore in this tropical paradise. Temples, rich traditions and culture, volcano treks, living with locals, diving in marine national parks, Hindu festivals and so much more is on offer here. One can easily spend anywhere between 2 weeks to a few months here. I think it is the perfect place to rejuvenate in pristine surroundings. One such place that I love for its nature, tranquillity and its temples is Gunung Kawi that is famous for its rock-cut temples and that is a fabulous place to experience in Central Bali. Don’t miss out on a rural holiday in this part of Bali. In simple words, it is a thin slice of paradise where you are one with mother nature.
