The Tegalalang Rice Terraces is among the first things to do in Ubud, Bali. This valley of rice paddies, situated north of Ubud, has some jaw-dropping views and is a great area to wander around. Explore all the different degrees, have a swing, and obviously a lot of pictures. Tegalalang is an easy 20-minute drive from Ubud and is something you must do in Bali.

Tegalalang is best to visit throughout the daytime time. Busses with visitors usually around after 10 am. The entry is situated along the side of the road. Loads of small cafes overlooking the rice terraces are located on this site.
Walk down into the valley until you pass just a tiny bridge. From there, hike back up to the other side of the Tegalalang Rice Terraces. The total walk only takes 10-fifteen minutes.
To explore every corner of the rice terraces you want anyplace from 30-90 minutes. Make sure to take water and sunscreen.
It’s best to visit Tegalalang from Ubud. The 20-minute driveway is easy to do by motorcycle. Even better would be to unite Tegalalang with among the various waterfalls in the region. By following our Bali Waterfall Route, you’ll have an even more incredible time in Bali.

Entrance Tegalalang Rice Terraces
Once you pass the tiny bridge, there’ll be asked for donations. These are IDR 10,000 (0.70 USD) each donation. That is a fair number if you consider that individuals are walking and sometimes destroying their fields.
Most rice areas are closed with fences if you prefer to pass those for a photo, a payment of 50000 IDR is going to be asked. Yes, these farmers make good money. We do think it’s totally worth it.
Bali swing at Tegalalang Rice Terraces
Because of the recognition of Tegalalang, a lot of attractions was opening in 2018. The world-renowned Bali swings are now also situated all around the valley. A 3-5 minutes swing costs you between IDR 100,000-150,000 (USD 8).
We don’t really like to support these swings because it can take the pure beauty of the valley.
