One of the most rewarding free activities in Ubud, Campuhan Ridge Walk doubles as a picturesque and eco-friendly bicycle ride. This paved trail traverses some of Bali's prettiest landscapes and offers nature lovers a chance to get some fresh air, stretch their legs, and escape the more crowded southern sections of the island. The trek starts at an 8th-century shrine in Ubud and snakes across verdant hills for a little over 9 km (5 mi). Suitable for hikers and cyclists of all ages and fitness levels, the trail passes through tiny villages and right next to a cozy guesthouse, where you can rest and recharge before going back or charging onward. You can plan Ubud trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • Early in the morning it is a pleasure to walk and listen to birds. Unfortunately, cafes did not work so early.  more »
  • This place was awesome, but from reading other reviews we came expecting quite a hike! It was quicker than we thought, but very pretty. A bit muddy after rain so no pretty shoes.  more »
  • Nice walk, take good shoes and water if it's a sunny day as with it being a ridge it's exposed most of the time. We went at about 10am so it wasn't to busy but on the way back it was getting noticeabl...  more »

  • Amazing hike between the green fields With amazing view. The path is easy and well prepared You don’t need any kind of guides, just go and enjoy. After around 2.5 km you will start seeing the rice fields and the farmers working there. The way back is the same path so you can walk as long as you can then go back or you can hire a taxi at the end. There is a lot of cafes in the way so you can buy water or any kind of refreshments. Make sure to have your water, hat, sunscreen.
  • A nice walk. Worth a visit at least once. Definitely agree with the other reviewers who have said to start off early, because it does get hot. But I also found there was a nice mix of sun and shade.
  • Very nice walk, we did it with our young kids and while it stretched them and we had to carry our little one (23 months) our 4 year old managed to go all the way up with out being carried. It's very hot and there is no shade so take cover or sun protection (umbrella or sun block) if going on a hot day. If you make it up to the cafe at the top you get some truly stunning views from the upstairs.
  • Wear sturdy shoes or trainers. The scenery is amazing and for the first 10 minutes or so the sound of the waterways, on either side, can be heard. Rice paddy fields can be seen and the lush foliage along the way. There are a few cafes, galleries and some temples. Well worth the effort but set off early, you may catch the Sunrise.
  • Was a lovely hike .. takes about 3 hours to complete one circle. First half of hike is great as it's only walk way without vehicles, but the other half is normal road with cars and bikes moving on the street though you can see rice field but I didnt enjoy that much. Beautiful scenery.. great place to click pictures. Make sure the temperature is a little cooler and carry water bottles. You do find small shops on the way.
