We dived into the real rain forest for three hours! Just like getting into National Geographics broadcast! Guides were caring and informed. This is the day we will remember for long!
Great day in the rain forest
The waterfalls spectacular, the camping and trek through the jungle was both fun and informative but the family involved that took care of us, fed us and were our guides we cannot rate highly enough. True Balinese hospitality and they made this a most memorable experience. We will 100% be back to visit with them.

We really enjoyed this trip! The trekking was a good walk and wasn’t too hot there either. Really liked the canoeing across the lake! Yoga stopped off at the lookout point for twin lakes and took some photos of us which was nice. There is also a man there selling pictures with some animals which was pretty cool! The waterfalls were beautiful and really quiet - not too many people around! Really great that Yoga came down with us and took some photos and videos for us even though it was a bit of a hike to get down and back up from the waterfalls! We also really enjoyed the lunch provided in the village, as well as the cute puppies in the village! I would suggest if you’re booking this trip to do it when you are staying a bit closer as it was a few hours drive from Nusa Dua!! still worth doing though and thanks to Yoga and his friend for being great guides :)
