Rice Terraced Fields in Bali  –

The expanse of green rice fields, like a painting, is so pleasing to the eye. From end to end, terraces are neatly arranged. From the expanse of paddy fields, the hands of the farmers are busy planting rice. Some just check the rice field bunds and take a leisurely walk while carrying their livestock; this is the typical rural atmosphere. The natural beauty of Bali does not only lie on the coast. But there is a natural beauty that is so pleasing to the eye that it makes anyone feel calm. Rice fields with terraces—you will enjoy how God’s hand is so beautiful playing on this island of the gods.

Located right at the foot of Mount Batukaru in the village of Jatiluwih, Tabanan Regency. There are approximately 850 meters above sea level in the Penebel area, which makes the area here very cool. The Jatiluwih terraced rice fields still use a traditional system called the Subak Irrigation System, which has been passed down from generation to generation. So that in June 2012, UNESCO recognized Jatiluwih as a World Cultural Heritage site. Subak, which consists of 150 rivers and streams in Bali, gathers and merges into one system for irrigating rice fields. The Jatiluwih rice terraces are the largest terraced area in Bali, consisting of more than 600 hectares of rice fields and very well tended gardens. Following the topography of the slopes of the Batukaru mountains, this uniqueness is possible as an imitation of rice fields in the ninth era. Therefore, the area coverage is bigger, and the green garden is wider and stretches for several kilometers.
