Campuhan Ridge Walk
Campuhan Ridge Walk
4.5
About
Amid lush ravines and picturesque rice fields, the Campuhan Ridge Walk is one of the most popular treks in Ubud. You’ll start off the hike at the meeting point of the Wos Rivers by the historic core of this charming Bali town. Stop along the way to take in the views and recharge with some coffee overlooking the peaceful lily ponds. About three miles there and back, the trail is best enjoyed around sunrise and sunset, when temperatures are milder. After the hike, don’t miss Ubud’s vibrant city center, where you can shop for handicrafts and visit ancient landmarks. – Tripadvisor

    Beautiful walk with amazing views (but choose a good path if running it)
    What an amazing view! I did this walk as a 5km jog, which was amazing. However, I think I should have chosen the other path as the one I took (the shorter of the two paths) was a bit difficult to run along due to the square blocks that make up the path. It looks from the photos that the longer path might have smoother running ground. Such a wonderful experience and gorgeous view. The path I ran took you up a hill and into a little village where you could grab lunch as well if you wanted to. Highly recommend!

    Lovely morning walk
    I read a number of reviews as I have bad knees and wanted to make sure I could do this walk. It isn’t a difficult walk but neither is it easy. If you go from the Karsa Kafe end then it’s easy as you won’t have all the uphill gradients, I would have struggled a bit coming the other way. It is all paved so easy to walk on. The rice paddies are only at the start before you get to the entrance of the walk. The views over to the hills are lovely and there is quite a bit of shade. I didn’t find it hot at all and we went at 0800. My watch said we did 2.7 Km’s from drop off point to the Ibah Hotel where you end. It was lovely at the end of the walk with the river and the temple. It took us under an hour and we stopped to take photos along the way.

    Immerse yourself in the lushness of Ubud!
    Great walk! Definitely go in early morning before it’s too hot as there r lots of areas with no shade. Also, lots of steps! After a while of walking, you will find a sweet village where you can purchase a beverage and shop. I purchased a piece of art from a wonderful Balinese man. He will roll up the art so it’s easy to carry back down the trail. This walk is a MUST when visiting Ubud!

    It’s a hill 😂
    If you don’t like walking uphill then give this one a miss. It’s really pretty and a lovely walk to do but you do have to mind your footing as the slabs aren’t evenly placed. I’ll say it was pretty busy in places and wasn’t what I expected from the photographs I’ve seen but seeing all the houses built into the hills is lovely and listening to the river rather than the hum of engines is also a nice change.

    Pleasant early-morning walk
    We did the walk at 6:30am which was a good time of day. Not too hot at the start, but it warmed up quickly as the sun rose higher. We left from outside Ibah Hotel, so the walk was uphill most of the way. It finally flattens out when you reach the rice fields. The scenery was pleasant, especially at the start of the walk when the path goes through forest and past the temple. Not spectacular, but if you treat it as a stroll in nature it’s a nice way to start the day. If you have trouble with going up stairs and walking uphill for a few kilometers though, it’s probably best to do the walk in reverse.

    Peaceful walk, scenery is a little underwhelming
    As usual this was a poorly signposted trail so a little tricky to find the beginning. Once you start it is really a nice surprise how soon the city sounds fade away and you’re fully immersed in nature. We started at 7am and there were already quite a few people who had completed their walks by the time we started. On the one hand it’s much quieter than the rice fields walk which is great and is much more relaxing. On the other, the scenery doesn’t really compare to the rice fields either. After the gate which marks the end of the walk itself, there are some nice cafes, warungs and little art workshops. All in all a good way to start the day in Ubud

    Easy morning walk
    View was good. We went on the morning for a breakfast at a local wearing near the exit and walked backwards towards Ubud. Walk was short (~30 mins) and manageable for older folks. The were areas of steeper slopes but in general it is manageable with shoes with good traction.

    Nice walk.
    I was expecting spectacular views which were a bit disappointing. That said, it was nice to get out of central Ubud and walk along the ridge and through the trees. Easy path to find and follow and not too long. A bit steep in sections so potentially not suitable for those with mobility/knee issues. Some lovely cafes/earrings along the way. This walk is best done early in the morning or later in the day avoiding the worst heat.

    Right in the center of Ubud, take a detour for a dip in the greenery.
    I loved taking the paved path which passes over a bridge, alongside a temple, to go deeper into the forest before reaching the summits. I wandered through the rice fields, bought a very pretty illustration, had a snack at Bird Hill (magnificent)... I went there early in the morning, I was there alone most of the time. I sweated a lot (take water), but the hike (completely accessible) is well worth it.

Pictures online for this are out of date. It's overgrown and the views aren't spectacular. There's nice shops one end and nice stream and temple the other but the walk is just a walk

Must do once in your trip, it's a very nice path and walk, the end is really rewarding since you can sit at one of the beautiful cafes, enjoy the view of the rice field as you sip on a fresh tender coconut or fresh juices out have a tasty leisurely lunch

This is a very popular, out-and-back nature walk that is within easy reach of the Ubud city centre. The trail is around 1.2 km metres in length between Jl Raya Ubud and the north end of the trail. It is paved and quite flat, making it convenient for families and those looking for leisurely walks away from the busy streets of Ubud.

The trail was fairly overgrown with grass during our recent walk. Views pretty good though. At the north end of the walk there are a few cafes and coffee shops if you fancy a rest break before heading back to the city centre, returning the same way you came.

We enjoyed our morning walk along the Campuhan Ridge Walk but to be honest, we found the Sari Organic Walk and trails around the Kejang Rice fields to be more scenic and enjoyable and would target them before the Campuhan Ridge Walk next time visiting Ubud.

Nice trek about 2kms, great scenery and a small village at the end, making an awesome stop for lunch. Take a bottle of water and your camera and go early or late afternoon to avoid the heat. A river runs through the walk as well. Peaceful free outing...

The location is not as hard to find as the review i read before. We use google maps to get there from ubud center by walking around 15-20 minutes. It's not suitable if you bring your little ones because it's a long walk. We go there around 11 am so it's hot. Better go in the morning. It's a hiking place, so wear comfortable shoes. In the halfway there's a warung/stall selling coconut and drinks. Beside it there's a swing. But you have to pay to the guard if you take photos sitting in the swing, becauae it's by the cliff. Don't expect too much at the end or you'll dissapointed like me. 😀 Overall it's good for exercise, some says you can see sunrise if you go early.

The walk was not really worth it. I was expecting views of rice terraces but there were barely any except in the north after the path. The walk by itself was pretty easy due to the roadwork they have done even with flip flops it was walkable. All in all it was a nice walk with no cars or scooters closeby.

I’m not even sure why this is called an attraction! Is a poorly slabbed footpath which is easy to twist your ankle on and there is absolutely nothing to see. Maybe this was nice once but there is no view to see at all as everything is overgrown. This was so poor that I had to double check that I was actually on the ridgeway at all. Honestly do not waste your time with this. It’s just a path with nothing to see at all.
