Mount Kawi, Tampaksiring

(4.5/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • In one of our travel guides said that you came through a long flight of stairs hewn out of the stone. This scared me somewhat because it had been raining the last days and every staircase that we encountered was smooth. This staircase is very good location partly because there is a railing and the treads very evenly. We were advised by our driver went very early, so it was still not too hot when we got back to the top ran and we were rather above than we expect. The other benefit is that not so many tourists and vendors. Very nice complex; is not in the standard travel, but you'll get the chance to go up there, then definitely do. Totally worth it.
