Tegallalang Rice Terraces
Only 20 minutes from Ubud center, Tegalalang rice terraces are well known for their astounding beauty, and also for their tourism attraction. Yet, if you journey here before the sun peaks over the ridge, you’ll find you have the whole place to explore yourself. The restaurants don’t open until the sun is high in the sky, the tourists don’t show up until midmorning, but the beauty of the terraces is at maximum. After the striking heat of the day, the sun may evaporate the reflective pools – but if you show up for sunrise, before the heat of the sun has a chance to dry out the water, the terraces look lush and vibrant. Immediately as the sun pokes over the mountain ridge, you will start to see clouds of mist from evaporation rising into the air, contributing to the jungled terraces’ dreamy atmosphere.
