Bali Island 6D/5N Day 4 Part 1/2: Journey to the Calming WaterSunday, December 30, 2012
Rise and shine when the sun was up high on the sky!
I don’t usually have the luxury to wake up this late when I go holiday especially I sign up tour with those travel agency. This Bali Trip I customized it to be able to visit all places with maximum luxury within my budget! My dream project for 2013 is to be able to create such travel itinerary, customized to every individual or groups of tourist. Well that is some side track..I will tell you more about that little project later!
Let’s get back to Bali, at 11am is when we started our another long journey to Mount Batur located in Kintamani district. But Mount Batur will be the last spot to visit for the day. So, we begin our visit to all sort of water attraction!
First stop will be Tegenungan Waterfall which is located at Kemenuh village, Gianyar, Bali. We all regret stopping by this waterfall, wasted a total of RP 24,000 of entrance fee to this muddy waterfall.
I will not spend even a minute here. I can easily get on of this small and muddy waterfall in Klang Valley. So, please skip this waterfall during your visit to Bali! It’s a waste of time!!
Leaving the muddy water behind, we moved forward to the Holy Water Temple named Tampak Siring Temple also known as Tirtha Empul Temple. This holy spring water is as clear as the crystal and all the bad elements or influences in your body will be purified if you shower with the water.
If you would like to be purified, please remember to bring extra cloth and towel or you can purchased a sarong at the shop outside the temple.
The temple is built with buildings with fine carvings of Balinese elements and also filled with Garuda elements. We walk around the temple and took some of the temple’s architecture.
