walks and hikes

Bambu Indah is located on the Sayan Ridge, above the Ayung River in the village of Baung in Sayan and across the sawah (rice paddies) from Bongkasa village. We invite you to explore and discover the property, our organic Bambu Indah farm, our nearby villages and the many ecosystems beyond.

Experience the simplicity of local living, worship nature and work up a sweat with our guided two hour morning walks, starting from 7am.


Led by our informative team of butlers, participants explore the jungle and carry customized sacks, with bamboo spears, to leave the environment cleaner than you found it, removing any pieces of trash you may find along the way. To thank you for your contribution to the maintenance of this stunning environment, this experience includes a complimentary breakfast of bubur bali (delicious local porridge) on return to Bambu Indah.

Trash walks – 100,000 IDR per person


Learn about the local culture, styles of buildings and spiritual practices, as well as the plants and their traditional uses. Explore the local village of Bongkasa, led by an experienced resident guide who can answer all of your questions and give you information you wouldn’t think to ask for.

Village walks – US$20 per person

On a clear day, the 3 peaks of Mount Batur are in view. Enjoy our beautiful sunsets from the sunset deck, Minang House, your private porch or from our beautiful tree house.


At 75 km, Ayung River is the longest river in Bali and it runs from the northern mountain ranges to Sanur. It is revered as a holy river and is accessible from the hotel via a downhill path or our bamboo elevator. Depending on the season, it can be navigated via river raft with the amazing half day white water rafting experience.


We share the ecosystem of Bambu Indah with many native plants and animals – this is their home and we are their guests. You may see lizards, geckos, frogs and small (harmless) snakes throughout the property. Bring a torch with you during the night and explore!
