  • We came out of the Temple around Amed 15:30, at the entrance we were greeted by the local-they need pay how much honor fit for entry, then you show map 7 temples, it is better to make the photo otherwise all that you showed will disappear from the head a few minutes after. We have spent a lot of time of the first temple, there is an unreal view of the Sacred Mount Agung, and what kind of atmosphere! The temple more than 2000 years, all steeped in the history of the people and the beauty of nature. Tourists had no, only my vdvoyom and insanely beautiful views of the volcano. Next we have arrived on a bike to other churches, but it was too late. Churches work to 17:00. Climb to the top of the temple 1.5 hours 1.5 hours there and back. We climbed up to some templov, but not to the top. On the way we met local monkeys alone are not entirely comfortable. Ups were cool, stairs dirty. In General, your sensor "aesthetics", you need to turn off or do not go up there at all. But I recommend getting at least to the first temple! There's true soul comes in such appeasement of what he saw:)

  • Back to Ubud, AMED to stay when I got stopped. Could climb to the top was spectacular views along the way. And more if it is sunny! ~ and. In addition the following challenge.

  • It's true, it's really difficult, especially during the months of hot Indonesian, but the climb itself, for those who love to learn about different traditions, to be the goal. You see throngs of women with Wonderful fruit basket balanced on her head. Soar gracefully, wearing sarong and colored lace blouses. The atmosphere of faith and peace is felt everywhere and it is the real magic of this place. Then, of course, the scenery is gorgeous. But the magic for me was meeting with balinese devotion.

  • Amazing view and only a lot of people. Very Good stuff which explain us some Information.
  • The second temple is the most beautiful, the walk to the top and the views are beautiful, you have to wear a sarong (it's 10k to rent it). We went without a guide and saw only one monkey in the last temple. If it's just to see temples the last one isn't worth it.
  • Amazing views. Well worth the trip. Take good walking shoes. It's quite the hike!
  • Beautiful temple. Great views over Bali and to the Gunung Angung.
  • The highest temple is quite a distance and the surrounding view aren't much to see. And the smallest among all. I would say the first temple is the best so far after the carpark. Meaning no need to go so high up. And no need to get the guide as you would expect to be approached. If you are driving then the journey is painful with traffic. My car gps is not fully operational. Not sure what the brand is and not user friendly at all. End up have to purchase data plan from my phone and used goggle map. Cost 200,000 for 1G.best solution.anyway its okay overall.if your have other places to go then keep this optional.
