WakaLandCruise, of Waka Hotels and Resorts, has announced two brand-new adventure tour packages, each set to take visitors on an extraordinary journey, by Land Rover or Land Cruiser, to areas of spectacular natural beauty to witness the many traditional, cultural and mystical aspects of rural Bali.
In the capable hands of the Cruise Director, guests will be driven to Kintamani in the area surrounding Gunung Batur volcano and Lake Batur, which both sit within a massive, 25-thousand-year-old caldera. One of the most photographed and spectacular signature sights in Bali, the iconic view from the rim has to be seen to be believed. The WakaLandCruise journey descends into the caldera through the mysterious and otherworldly lava field.
The daytrip will also make stops at Segara Windhu coffee plantation, where guests can see and sample the fruits of Bali’s rural landscape; at Tegallalang to see the magnificent sculpted rice terraces; and at Ubud Monkey Forest to observe the mischievous long-tailed grey macaques. The surrounding area offers some blissful views of forests, temples and villages.
ï¿¼ï¿¼ï¿¼The second new daytrip from WakaLandCruise focuses on the Ubud area in Bali’s central highlands, starting with a tasting session of locally grown coffee, tea, and organic chocolate at Teba Sari Coffee Plantation. A gentle paved walk along the Campuhan Ridge, which passes between two steep and lush river valleys, then follows for guests who opt for this itinerary.
The excursion ends with a visit to one of Bali’s most beautiful waterfalls, Kanto Lampo, where guests can take a cool dip in the river or pose for photos in the cascade of fresh water, tumbling over the waterfall nestled in lush jungle terrain.
On both daytrips, guests will be served lunch at the legendary Murni’s Warung, which was created in 1974 by Ibu Murni who still owns and runs it.
Each WakaLandCruise includes transfers from / to hotel, mineral water, tea, coffee and Balinese snacks, and lunch inclusive of a fruit juice or a soft drink.
