Jatiluwih Rice Terraces

Taken from the local language jati (meaning ‘very’) and luwih (meaning beautiful or special), this panoramic paradise lives up to its name; a stunning vista of green steps cultivated into a patchwork of fields, blanketing the surrounding valleys in iridescent green as far as the eye can see.

Like Pura Luhur Ulu Watu, at the tip of the southern Bukit Peninsula, and Pura Rambut Siwi to the west, it is closely associated with the Majapahit priest Nirartha. It’s said that each of the sea temples was intended to be within sight of the next, so they formed a chain along Bali’s southwestern coast. Must visit for its sheer beauty and witnessing dramatic sunsets.

Ulun Danu Water Temple
