Bali Eco Adventure: Sustainable Tourism in Bali's Highlands

Sustainable Tourism at its Best at Bayad Village, Near the Tampak Siring Presidential Palace.


(7/13/2009)

In what will hopefully become a model for future tourism development across the island of Bali, Bali Eco Adventure Center has opened a unique nature experience in the Tegalalang Valley, north of Ubud and only a short distance from the Tampak Siring presidential palace.

Established in close cooperation and with the active involvement of the surrounding community, Bali Eco Adventure offers:

• Nearly 6 km of nature paths along the banks of Bali's sacred Petanu river.

• Well-trained docents from the local community able to help visitors identify the more than 300 tropical fruits trees, spices and medicinal herbs growing along hiking paths.

• A 1.5 km underground labyrinth of recently unearthed caves, believed to be more than 750 years old.

• A spice store selling locally harvested organic herbs and spices.

• A restaurant serving healthful lunches, including oyster-mushroom soup from mushrooms grown on the premises.

• A limited number of eco-friendly villas and a small conference center for individuals or small groups wishing to spend an overnight or longer amidst the jungle canopy.

• A spa with well-trained therapists providing the perfect encore after a jungle hike.

The reserve covers an area of approximately 25 square kilometers, encompassing traditional farm lands still in the possession and cultivation of 34 Balinese families. Return on equity from the project is dedicated to improving health care, housing, educational opportunities and social empowerment.

The average 4-hour visit to Bali Eco Adventure is sufficient to cover a guided nature walk, a visit to the Goa Maya labyrinth cave complex and enjoy a relaxing post-trek meal. Longer stays, incorporating a spa treatment or an overnight stay, are available on a space-available basis.

Travel time from South Bali to Bayad is approximately one hour with round trip transfers included in the pakage price.

An Emphasis on Doing Things Right

The sustainable tourism model in place at Bali Eco Adventure seeks to minimize any negative impacts on the environment and local community, rewarding the endemic population for their careful stewardship of nature and cultural traditions. No effort is spared in preserving biological and cultural diversity for the enjoyment of visitors and as a source of sustainable employment for people of Bayad.

While visitors are encouraged to take only photographs and bring home only memories during their visit to Bali Eco Adventure, those wishing to have a lasting impact on the area are encouraged to purchase a local fruit tree (e.g. Rambutan, Manggis or Durian) and plant it during their visit. Attractive name plates identifying the plan and its donor or the memory of a friend or family members create a lasting tribute, helping also to contribute to a carbon-negative visit.
