American nomad of the electronic era, a lady who calls herself “Lash,” continues to explore Asia while writing books in support of her freewheeling lifestyle. In love with the open road and open air, she hikes, climbs, cycles, dives and snorkels her way around Asia and Bali in a journey she first commenced in 1998.
Lash started wilderness hiking at a young age with her family in the U.S.A.. As a young adult she took up more extensive wilderness adventures by backpacking in American's national and state parks. Later, she took her hiking enthusiasm to Japan, where she lived from 1991-1997, and hiked Japan's mountains and countryside.
Visiting Bali for the first time in 2000, she climbed all of Bali's main peaks and cycled around the eastern half of the island. She has returned to Bali almost annually ever since, staying 2-6 months each time.
Since 2007, Lash has spent three 4-month stints in Amed, north Bali, where she hiked extensively, and gathering notes for her latest guidebook on hiking in Bali.
A diving Instructor and emergency first response Instructor, she has spent most of the past 14 years living in the tropics.
She also runs a popular travel blog site featuring stories, photo galleries, travel tips and advice.
Hiking in Bali
Lash’s latest book Hiking in Bali 20 Hikes in Amed: Bali's Remote Northeast Coast is arguably the first book of its kind, surveying walks of varying difficulty in and around the picturesque area of northeast Bali.
The Hiking Guide follows Lash's earlier popularly acclaimed guide to cycling tours of Bali.
Tucked in Bali's remote northeast corner, Amed sits in a mountainous coastal region of tiny fishing villages set in crescent bays that are separated by rocky headlands and backed by pretty mountains whose ridge lines dip their toes into the gentle Bali Sea. Local farmers and fisherman inhabit Amed’s little-visited mountains. Hidden in the hillsides are their thatch and stone houses, terraced fields, Hindu temples, and secret watering holes. From the ridgelines, spectacular views of Bali's north coast await visitors.
Hiking in Bali guides adventurers on 20 charming hikes along narrow mountain footpaths, remote roads, grassy headlands and Amed's only long beach.
The guidebook provides all the details needed to enjoy memorable excursions into the author's slice of the 'real Bali'.
Each hike includes:
- Brief hike description
- Highlights of the hike
- Tables of 'fast facts' listing all essentials such as distance, hiking time, start/end points, and difficulty
- Detailed step-by-step instructions
- A map
- Amenities/facilities available in each hike area
Hiking in Bali also includes helpful hints on how stay healthy during a Bali holiday.
