    Worth a detour to see these stunning terraces.
    Visited as part of a day visiting temples and as we around the area, we wished to view these UNESCO rice terraces. They are quite stunning and it was well worth the detour to see them. We ate overlooking some terraces in a little restaurant called The Gafel. My lunch was by far the spiciest meal of our trip to Bali and it was a real change not to feel the spice had been dumbed down for my palate. I mention this restaurant in this review as I have not located any entry on TA for it. Whilst we were taking photos, we had people working the field posing and shouting for us to take their photos as well. On the drive towards the terraces, we had to stop in a long queue of traffic as what appeared the whole of one village were crossing the road from one side to the other as part of a funeral procession towards the burial grounds. There were so many people and the road was blocked for quite a while, that they had even got people controlling the traffic afterwards. Entrance fee to the terraces to drive through was IDR40k each and IDR5k as we had a camera.

    Neat
    Various length of easy to follow walking trails depending on your energy level. Bring water especially on a hot day. The tiered landscape with 3 sessions a year planting is beautiful to look at. When the rice is ready they stop the drainage so the terrain is dry to harvest.

    Fresh air, not crowded!
    I have been to tegalalang before and thought Jatiluwih might be a new experience. It was my partner's first time to Bali and I chose Jatiluwih this round because of the mountainous background. It was the last stop of our North Bali day tour. The air was fresh and we enjoyed the tranquil sounds of nature and cooling tempoerature at the rice terraces. There were no crowds at all and you can take photos everywhere without people in the background. I gave 4 stars because unfortunately the rice had already been harvested when we were there so we didn't have the lush green views. No touristy souvenir shops or specially set-up Instagram spots but Jatiluwih felt very local and vast. There was a cafe for drinks and food overlooking the fields. Hopefully we can see the rice plants the next time.

    Authentic rice terraces which are a must-see in Bali
    We visited these stunning rice terraces and rice paddies in August as part of a private tour. The scenery was stunning and we enjoyed trekking through the rice terraces and stopping off for fresh coconut along the way. There were only a few tourists around when we visited which was welcome given how busy most tourist sights are in Bali. Highly recommended.

    Great experience
    Amazing place, just kilometres of rice paddies and terraces. You can walk around the terraces and around the rice fields, there is a paved walking track and for cyclists. It is a truly amazing sight and well worth the trip up there.

    Excellent scenic walks with a cool breeze!
    Beautiful views of the rice terraces for miles and miles. As this is a higher elevation it is also considerably cooler that in the jungle. The walks are well signposted and easy under foot. Only thing worth knowing is take food and drink with you as once you’re in the fields on the paths, there isn’t much. Occasional local selling over priced coconuts and Coca Cola, but that’s it. There are cafes and restaurants in the car park areas though! Thoroughly recommend for a more relaxing day!

    Bali at its Beautiful Best
    Visiting Jatiluwih was one of the highlights of our trip to Bali. Thank god for UNESCO protection as this location is so beautifully preserved, unlike some of the overrun temple sites on the island. It was such a pleasure to hike through the stunning rice fields in peace and tranquility. Highly recommend.

    Spectacular
    Stunning! You pay as you drive in to the town to access it. At the centre is a small strip with a few restaurants (amazing meal with a view) , after we had a lovely walk, we’ll signposted, through the fields. So beautiful, well worth the drive.

    Jatiluwih vs Tegallalang
    Tegallalang is no competition to Jatiluwih, a UNESCO heritage site. Visited both and find the former a tad too touristy. there are balinese swings and other furnishing that have nothing to do with paddy fields but all about creating the perfect instagram shots. the latter still have the buffalos stationed at various sites, to work the fields. the irrigation system is also more obvious for those interested the Jatiluwih location is also more scenic. the fields are framed by volcanic mountains. it is beautiful even on a cloudy afternoon i was there. the paddy fields are mostly in seedlings stage during my visit (january). therefore, if you are looking for the perfect green carpet, my recommendation is to visit in march-april.

    Very commercialized, but still worth it
    Accessing the Jatiluwih rice fields area requires a fee. Despite commercialization since our last visit, the rice fields remain stunning. A walking path winds through, providing easy access. It's a bit of a trek from Nusa Dua, but the scenery is worth it. Grab a meal or drink at one of the nearby restaurants overlooking the valley, then stroll through the paddies. The landscape, shaped over centuries, is still tended today, often with cows. Jatiluwih rice terrace is a must-visit spot in Bali, with its fairy tale-like beauty. Enjoy the view over a drink or meal at a nearby restaurant. If possible, consider staying nearby for a couple of days for a more immersive experience.

Stunning preserved area of verdant beauty. It also makes a great day out if you visit the nearby Yeh Hoo Air Terjun (waterfall) followed by the Yeh Panas Hot Springs.

The view is incredible and it is very well treated however the red line was closed, the red line is the line that is the most shortest to the finish line which is 1,5km, and they have not mentioned it to us, we would’ve like to known before doing the hike.

Jatiluwih Rice Terrace is one of many rice terraces in the Bali region of Indonesia. However, the Jatiluwih Rice Terrace is one of the largest and most scenic in all Indonesia. This Rice Terrace has been awarded the UNESCO World Cultural Landscape designation because the rice terraces are an important part of Indonesian culture, and Jatiluwih Rice Terrace is a prime example. The Terraces were built on hillsides that offers stunning scenery of the very green fields of rice and of the very lush landscape surrounding this area. There are some nice hiking trails that run through the rice fields where you can actually walk through and see how tall the rice fields can grow and you can see for yourself how large this rice terrace actually is and to see the wonderful scenery at this location. This Rice Terrace is very photogenic and well worth the visit.

You have to pay to drive through the area of the Jatiluwih rice fields. There are several restaurants around the building. A walking path has been constructed between the fields that is easily accessible. Unfortunately, we also visited them in 2008 and in 2023 it has become completely commercial. Yet the rice fields are still beautiful.

The Jatiluwih rice terraces in north Bali are an oasis of beautiful greenery, peace, and countryside serenity. Yes, there are tourists, but unlike the hoards that descend on the rice terraces in Ubud to go on the swings and nests for Instagram likes, in Jatiluwih there is enough space for people to walk and bike while surrounded by the lush terrace fields and no gimmicky distractions. A very nice place indeed!
