MELANGIT RIVER, BAKAS

Water Rafting, enjoy a screaming sensation along the river-flow; feel your heart beat faster then ever on a natural “water-slide” and refresh your mind by seeing natural gardens along the river side.

Test your courage by jumping from a 3 meter platform to the Melangit river on the rest stop during the Melangit river rafting adventure.  All can be enjoyed in Bali‘s Melangit river rafting.

Jumping from 3 meters high

Melangit River located between Eastern part of Gianya and the Western part of Klungkung, about 45 mins drive from the heart of Denpasar City.

It has super top rafting spot you find nowhere else in Bali – winding rapids like an eel moving with its white, wavy, foamy water shaking the boats along its way.

Steep Cliffs and Sharp Bends

The Melangit is a unique among rivers in Bali.  Its steep cliffs and rocks waterfalls, and sharp bends make it very attractive to the adventurous.

With pollution free water flowing down from the volcano mountain and untouched tropical vegetation, it has a pure natural beauty that is especially refreshing.

DREAMLAND BEACH

High Tea at Dreamland Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Bali.  It is located in the Southern Peninsular of Bali, south of Bali airport and about 30 minutes from Kuta Center.

Panoramic View of Dreamland Beach

Dreamland Beach has soft white sand and the beach is cleaner than the beaches in the main tourist areas of Kuta.  It is great to sit there and watch the wonderful surf and activity.  Also the sunset is spectacular here.

ULUWATU CLIFF

Uluwatu Cliff is at the western most tip of Bukit Peninsula, this is one of Bali’s nine “directional” Kayangan Jagat Temples.  The location is dramatic, perched on the edge of a high cliff at 95 meters above sea level with fantastic view to the Indian Ocean and a picturesque sunset view.

Uluwatu Cliff – View of Indian Ocean

The Uluwatu Temple was first used for worship by the holy 11th century priest, Empu Kuturan, who came to Bali to bring religious law and to form Desa Adat (traditional villages).  Filled with the scent of frangipani blossoms and is also the home of “friendly” monkeys.

Walking to Uluwatu Temple

Uluwatu Temple

Of course, the monkeys consider the foreign visitors to be an inexpensive source of hats and sunglasses – so you’d better hang on to yours!

A Hindu saint recognised this spot 700 years ago as a particularly powerful site for a temple, and The sliver of rock that holds the temple seems so narrow, almost insignificant against the vastness of sea and sky.

The entire cliff shudders with the impact of the waves, while monkeys shriek and scamper along walls that drop sheer to the surging foam hundreds of feet below.  Across the surface of the sea, after every retreating wave, white foam curls like lace and one can see coral and sometimes sea turtles and dolphins swimming below.

Walking to Uluwatu Temple for Kecak Dance Performance

In the 15th Century the great pilgrim priest Dhang Hyang Dwijendra, who established the present form of Hindu Dharma religion, chose Pura Uluwatu as his last earthly abode: history records that Dwijendra achieved moksa (oneness with the godhead, in a flash of blazing light) while meditating at Uluwatu.

The temple is regarded, by Brahmans island wide, as his holy “tomb”.  Legend also tells us that Dwijendra was the architect of the Beautiful temple on Bali, Lombok and Sumbawa.

KECAK DANCE

Kecak Dance is derived from the sound “cak”, pronounced “chok”, which is chanted in complex interlocking patterns that are like the rhythmic patterns played on the gamelan.

The modern form of kecak originated from Gianyar village of Bedulu in the 1930’s as a result of commissioned by the German expatriate artist, Walter Spies.  He wished to create a performance that could be enjoyed by a small coterie of expatriate artists like himself, as well as friends and guests to the island.

Kecak Dance

The modern performance of Kecak is a sensational sight to behold. Hundreds of bare-chested men sit in a circle with a flickering single oil lamp in the middle.

“Cak – Cak – Cak”, the chant begins and the men start dancing and swaying to the rhythmic reverberation of their own voices. Hands raised to the sky, bodies shaking in unison, the chorus performs the highly structured piece of vocal music for about an hour.

This unique dance holds the title of being the most popular dance in Bali. Its about good triumph over evil.
