Mount Kawi, Tampaksiring

#2 of 11 in Things to do in Tampaksiring
Monument Religious Site
Visit Mount Kawi, an 11th century temple and historical site. Set amidst thick and rich forests and tiered rice fields, the main temple features 10 shrines cut into the rocky cliff face that were believed to be dedicated to King Anak Wungsu of the Udayana dynasty and his queens. Its inspiring, monumental design and surrounding natural landscape make this an atmospheric and photogenic place to walk and learn about the religious heritage of the area. Wear good shoes to visit the temple--300 steps lead down to the main site, and the surrounding forest is well-worth exploring during a longer visit. Add Mount Kawi and other attractions to your Tampaksiring trip itinerary using our Tampaksiring family vacation planner.

Where to stay in Tampaksiring

Tampaksiring's small size means rather limited accommodation options; however, looking at the rest of central Bali or even Ubud, 18 km (11 mi) to the east, will prove more fruitful. Ubud has a large array of lodgings to suit a range of budgetary requirements, from the affordable and midrange, to the luxury four- and five-star. The most budget-friendly option remains the family-run guesthouses, or homestays, offering clean and basic rooms--perfect for backpackers.
