Day 45, June 24: Trekking in Bali

Early rise, breakfast and off for a 5K trekking experience. This was a very beautiful trek which involved several hills, rice fields and a rocket-river bed. We visited an isolated and “time forgotten” village,  the village of Tengarian where we had the opportunity to bargain for exquisite basketry and prized Geringing ikat cloth.

A Hindu temple….seemingly in the middle of nowhere. It is used once a year. Other Hindu prayers are routinely said before their three house shrines.
