JatiluwihJatiluwih terraced paddy field in Bali is one destination that is suitable to kill the time. This could be an alternative tour of green rice fields in Ubud apart.

A memorable place when I was in Bali is Jatiluwih. A tourist attraction fit for the traveler who wants to let go of tired of the daily grind. Because, there really beautiful scenery typical Balinese village, is able to eliminate stress in our brains.

Jatiluwih is a village which has a vast rice field terraces shaped. Vast green rice fields makes me call it The Emerald of the Equator of the island. Jatiluwih located in Penebel, Tabanan, Bali. The total area is approximately 600 acres.

Location approximately 800 meters above sea level in the highlands of Mount Batukaru make the air in there was cool and fresh. Jatiluwih known as the rice brown rice.

Jatiluwih distance of about 60 km from Denpasar. Transport for getting there is not difficult, because you can reach any mode of transportation, such as by car, motorcycle, or a traveler can enjoy the view in other ways that cycling or car hire VW. Exciting is not it? Along the way there I passed through the winding streets of the typical mountains, crystal clear rivers are rocky, and traditional Balinese village culture is still strong.

Arriving at Jatiluwih, I was greeted with a broad panorama of rice fields stretching green bath rugs. Travelers can also go down to the embankment and around to the paddy area to enjoy closer cultural and natural beauty of the harmony created by the people of Bali in Jatiluwih.

Visitors can see how fertile rice plants, especially when the grain begins to turn yellow and harvested. Rice that has been picked or harvested by the farmers usually tied and arranged neatly on agricultural land. It adds to the beauty of the Jatiluwih.

Besides tourists can also see the irrigation system or water well-organized, well-known worldwide called Subak. Remember, there is free of charge visitors know, or free. One more unique is, tourists will find little pretend that stands in the rice fields as a sign of respect for local people to Dewi Sri, the goddess of prosperity and fertility. Interesting is not it?

According to local people, terraces in Jatiluwih a symbol of stairs connecting the farmers with the Creator. It is a reflection of the balance of the population there relation with nature, each other and God. A Hindu spiritual sight is Tri Hita Karana.

Morning is the perfect time to get there, because the air will feel more refreshed. Meanwhile, during the day, the view will be slightly obscured by fog. Like the highlands in general.

Jatiluwih managed to combine culture with nature in harmony. Well, because it's uniqueness, UNESCO entered this region in the World Heritage nomination to Jatiluwih. So there we are going to see a nomination from the UNESCO monument that stood firm. Not imaginary, many tourists both domestic and foreign tourists who come there.

My advice, if the traveler holiday to Bali, do not miss Jatiluwih. Bring a camera to capture the moment of your togetherness with Jatiluwih The Emerald of the Equator of the island. Happy traveling, guys!
