Ancient temples speak of long ago, while traditional arts and crafts are displayed for the modern visitor. Cookery classes are a popular activity, while health spas are also attractions that draws many people to the area.

Amid the mountain scenery is a fascinating holy site called Goa Gajah or Elephant Cave, with intricate carvings and bas-reliefs thought to date back to the 11th century. Shaped like a mouth, the entrance appears to swallow tourists as they enter the mysterious temple, which is named for the nearby Elephant River.

Gunung Kawi, another popular religious site, features ten 7 metre high shrines carved into the rock face and considered to be one of the oldest temples in Bali. You must wear a sarong to visit this temple.

It is possible to get close, feed and even touch some of the birds which will fascinate the whole family. An adjoining Reptile Park increases the value obtained in the area.

Monkeys at the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary are not the only attraction here. Three sacred temples are found within the sanctuary and the forest is also considered sacred. Kids will also enjoy a visit to the Elephant Safari Park where elephants are waiting to give you a ride through their park.
