Very Nice Strenuous Walk!
Feb 2020 • Couples
The temples carved into stone are impressive and unique. There isnt a lot to it but the walk up and down can be strenuous for some. Down at the bottom there is a nice stream and a good few spots for a photo or two.

Perfection! A must-see!
Feb 2020
We visited many temples while in the Ubud area, but this was my favorite because of the gorgeous rice fields.

You'll pay 50 Indonesian rupees per person for entry, and this includes a sarong. Both men and women need to wear these while visiting. Your walk to the temple begins with many steps down, but the steps are through photogenic rice terraces that I found breathtaking. This satisfied my craving for an authentic rice terrace experience, which I was unable to get at Tegalalang (see separate review). Also, during this walk we discovered that they have a swing here, and I would have much preferred the atmosphere here at Gunung Kawi on a swing to the one we had at Tegalalang.

The cave temples are stunning and a feat to contemplate.

I hope you enjoy Gunung Kawi as much as we did!

my group from Rahasia Manis visited in Nov 2019 but I had had such a good experience in Sept 2018 with my informative Balinese driver I chose not to go again with a big group. Ask a local!

Water Temple, NOT the Statues Temple
Oct 2019
Per the reviews seen thus far, reviewers have confused this water temple with Pura Gunung Kawi which is down in a valley surrounded by paddies with large stone statues carved out of the cliffside. That is NOT this temple. This temple is just under 5 km from 'Pura Gunung Kawi' whereas this is a small water temple called 'Gunung Kawi Sebatu'. Don't confuse the two. This is a less visited temple due to the name confusion and Tirta Empul Temple being the more popular water temple. You can bathe here in the spring water pools (separate male/female) without fighting the crowds normally seen at Tirta Empul. Great spot.

Long way down, hard walk back up, but worth it
Feb 2020
50,000 Rupiah entrance fee, they will provide a sarong if you don't have one. There are vendors along the path and some seats to rest at. It's relatively easy going down, but a lot harder trek walking back up. There weren't many people when we were there. Exploring the place, this truly felt like Bali to me. This place is old, ancient, and if you stay still for a moment, you can feel how sacred this place is for those who believe.

I just wish management would fix the restrooms. Travelers are human beings who need to use the lavatory.

Peaceful beautiful temple!
Feb 2020 • Couples
Visit this beautiful ancient temple early in morning and you can have it all to yourself. Place is extremely peaceful and you can sit here for hours. Must visit form Ubud. Sarong is to be worn to enter the temple which is provided free of cost at the entrance.
