Is really wide rice Terraces, worth a visit.  definitely larger than Tegalalang rice terrace in Ubud that decide initially. But …..

Because we got Car!  so we go far far !

This morning we allowed ourselves to wake up late, we not rush to visit many places, so we relax and have breakfast at Homestay restaurant. Enjoy the black coffee…. feel the free time .

The view In front , across road is a small covienience stall. Saw the people open stall and business. Entrance Door hanged a caged bird. This is life here behind crowd main road.

After that we be prepare drive 2 hrs to destination. Depart about 9am.  Little traffic jam in town , after the town is smooth. Proper road, no obstacle .

Actually we got a wrong way near to the destination, lead by Waze. nearly go into jungle road. Lucky we reverse out to use another road. So be careful not to drive into narrow road, always choose the main road. Hehe. We got little Phobia after car stuck in jungle incident in Jogya.

Wow!! …Is quite excited at the  first slight ,a wide and green field when arriving to the rice Terraces. Both side of the road covered by rice terrace, feel green and fresh.

Feel cool, sun are not very hot. From the info this rice Terrace located 700 meter above sea level and right at the foot of the Batukaru mountain. Here we can see the mountain and natural panorama view of the green rice terrace. But due to the cloudy weather, I can’t see the mountain.

The mountain that cover by cloud . But still a nice view right ?

This is  the road side. The paddy is everywhere.

We Follow people , Walked through the rice terrace, have some pictures. Green is good for eye. Mind healing. always is my favorite color.  Look , the route actually very narrow on the field, have to concede each other while walk through and also Say Hai !

Follow the route , here well prepared for tourist.

Healthy paddy. Closer to paddy field .the paddy is not too crowded together.

Well manage irrigation system. If not mistaken this site also appointed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites because of the effort of the organization who manage the site – SuBak

The rice terrace is wide, we try to cross to another side, but we drop into mud then heading back . Lucky we wear slipper.
