Choosing scenic, Instagrammable spots in Bali to be featured is as hard as making the list of 10 most favorite flicks of Martin Scorsese. However, we have succeeded in curating these 8 Instagrammable places in Bali that will bring you back to nature:
Wanagiri Hidden Hill, Buleleng
Unlike the name, Wanagiri Hidden Hill in Buleleng isn’t hard to find. And no one has actually hidden the hill, it’s just us, human, who has ignored the place for so long. Anyhow, all you have to do is drive north to Bedugul, go further up to Gobleg Village, and seek for the road sign to Wanagiri Hidden Hill.
“Well, what can I do there?” You can update your Instagram feed with cool photos for sure. But you have to make sure that you aren’t phobia of height because all of the Instagenic spots in Wanagiri Hidden Hill is on the verge of a cliff from which you can gaze at the magnificent Lake Bedugul.
Tirta Gangga, Karangasem
Thank God people the ancient people didn’t have the smartphone. If they did, I doubt there’d be such an amazing a place like Tirta Gangga Water Palace in Karangasem.
Without the help of AutoCAD or other software, they successfully built a magnificent pool decorated with dozens of artsy statues. The best time to go to this place is during the golden hours, either in the morning or several hours before dusk.
Kasna Flower Garden, Karangasem
… . I am only human I will ride out the world just like you You can take or leave it Let the stars paint a line of truth … .. …. . ____ #casna #bali #whpwithlove #wildernessculture #instagram #jakarta #surabaya #Bandung #medan #makassar #love #february #lfl #welivetoexplore #livefolkindonesia #theoutbound #modernoutdoors #vzcomood #expofilmñnbj #visualambassadors #lifeodadventure #createcommune #stayandwander #theglobewanderer #themoodygrams
Two hours from Denpasar, Kasna Flower Garden caters to people who love flowers—or who failed to mend their own gardens. Since what you’re visiting is a flower garden, you have to go there at the right time.
The best moment to go to Kasna Flower Garden is a couple of weeks before Galungan. After Galungan the flowers would have already been harvested. To get a scenic shot, it is advisable to go there in the morning or afternoon. Going at night is out of the question.
Toya Devasya Wellness Resort, Kintamani
This natural hot spring and camping resort perches beautifully in the mountainous Kintamani. The view is magnificent. From the infinity pool, you can adore the towering Mount Batur.
It’d be much nicer if you stayed there for a night than going on a day trip. Why? Because Kintamani is a little bit far from Denpasar, 63 kilometers ride up through a long and winding road.
Pura Tirta Taman Mumbul, Sangeh
Perhaps it’s true that Pura Tirta Taman Mumbul isn’t in the same league as Tirta Gangga. Yet, though it doesn’t have beautiful statues or stone slabs in the middle of the pond, it emits a simple, natural beauty. Looking at the crystal clear water, you’ll get the sense that you are on a post-impressionist painting of Vincent van Gogh.
The most Instagrammable spot of Pura Tirta Taman Mumbul is the platform which looks like the bow of a bamboo raft. This place is situated in Sangeh, Abiansemal, Badung Regency.
Vihara Dharma Giri, Tabanan
You’ll find it interesting that there’s a sleeping Buddha statue in Bali. “So what?” Well, Bali is a Hindu region. So it’s rather intriguing to find a Buddhist property in Bali.
To get there you need to ride for around 2,5 hours to Pupuan, Tabanan. You’ll encounter many paddy fields and beautiful beaches along the way. However, since it is a sacred place you need to dress properly.
Hidden Canyon Beji Guwang, Gianyar
No worries. As does Wanagiri Hidden Hills, it’s not really hidden and quite easy to find. This natural wonder is located in Sukawati, Gianyar Regency. From Denpasar, it’ll take around 2-hour journey. From Ubud, it’ll be much closer.
Hidden Canyon Beji Guwang will be a lot more Instagrammable during the dry season. The water, streaming calmly following the gravity, will be turquoise. During the rainy season, the river will be brown.
The Little Kenawa Island in Tianyar, Karangasem
There are a lot of Interesting things to do in Tianyar, a beach resort in Karangasem Regency. You can see how people make salt, you can go fishing, or you can go to a tropical savanna which looks like Kenawa Island in Nusa Tenggara Barat.
However, unlike Kenawa Island, the savanna in Tianyar is more lively. Trees are everywhere. The green grass attracts several horses and herds of goats which graze all day long—and there’s even a small natural pond.
