Elephants at the Park
For approximately US$57 (572,400 IDR), we had admission to the park, a 30 minute elephant show (they paint, play soccer, play basketball, etc.) & a 30 minute elephant ride. You may feed the elephants & take plenty of pictures of them. In my opinion, totally worth it!
Directions: Not far from Ubud
Tirta Gangga, or "Water of the Ganges," is a water garden built by the King of Karangasem. This maze of pools and fountains is surrounded by lovely gardens, complete with stone carvings & statues. The architecture is a blend of Chinese & Balinese styles.
Gunung Kawi, a sacred Balinese spot dating from the 11th century, is located near Tampaksiring. The footpath to the monument winds past/through terraced rice paddies & a gurgling stream. If you do not have a sarong & sash to wear, you may rent some towards the entrance. Aside from the rock-cut shrines carved into the hillside, there are several waterfalls to be seen. The site is open from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.
Be aware that there are 315 steps going down to the monument, which is NOT fun on your way back up to the parking lot. However, you can browse through the souvenir stalls slowly on your return. Or you can sit & rest while drinking bottled water from one of the vendors (at inflated prices, of course!).
