Jatiluwih which has a height of approximately 1,059 meters or 3,476 feet above sea level is the most favorite tourist spot in Bali which is very famous for its beautiful terraced rice fields. This place is very suitable for European tourists, especially tourists who like the natural countryside. The reason is, the nature is still beautiful with vast rice fields, humid, fresh air and beautiful scenery. Here, the farmers have succeeded in preserving the ancestral cultural heritage to maintain the balance of nature. Meanwhile, the cool air and the life of the surviving farmers have attracted many tourists to visit this place. Also, this place continues to improve public facilities to provide a sense of comfort for tourists visiting Jatiluwih Rice Terrace. On the other hand, Subak is a Balinese social organization. This organization has succeeded in protecting nature in Jatiluwih and regulating the social life of the local community. Therefore, UNESCO has designated this place as a World Cultural Heritage.
The name Jatiluwih comes from two words, namely "Jati" and "Luwih". The word Jati means true, really, while the word Luwih means good, charming, beautiful. Therefore, it is no exaggeration if Jatiluwih is a really nice or beautiful place. The expanse of green rice fields that overlap from the foot of Mount Batukaru to the southern edge (ocean) is the main attraction of this place. In addition, this rice field has produced three different types of rice, namely white rice, brown rice and black rice. There are 2 kinds of white rice: there is regular white rice which is consumed by the general public in Indonesia and the other is for snacks that have a rather large, chewy and sticky texture. Brown rice has a low carbohydrate content so it is very good for preventing diabetes. Brown rice is often dipped in hot water to make tea. While black rice is widely used to make black pudding snacks filled with brown sugar and grated coconut. Jatiluwih village produces the best quality rice with the highest grade and is widely exported abroad.

How to get there?

Regarding the distance, Jatiluwih Village is 62 km or more than 2 hours from Bali International Airport. This place is very easy to reach from highway traffic because it has good road access. Unfortunately, the road to get there is still tortuous, up and down and a bit narrow. For large vehicles, such as buses with more than 25 seats, we do not recommend it. For reckless and naughty big bus drivers, they often fall into ditches or ditches. Towards the Jatiluwih area, tourists can pass four different access roads. First, what people generally do is enter via the main main road (Denpasar-Singaraja). Later in Pacung Village, you will meet a T-junction (in the left corner there is Indomaret), turn left there and head west through Apuan Village. Second, from the west through Wongaya Gede Village near Batukaru Temple. Third, we can pass from the south through Mangesta Village. While the fourth from the north is from the corn statue in Bedugul Village near Ulun Danu Temple.
