About
Tegalalang Rice Terrace comprises a series of cascading rice fields. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the area is especially popular during sunrise and sunset. Take your time to explore the terraces, visit the nearby Bali Pulina plantation, and have a go on the mountain-edge swings. To see the fields at their greenest, visit in March, August or September. They're also green in December and February but are slippery due to the rainy season. The rice terrace is commonly visited on a tour of Ubud which includes other places of interest like the Monkey Forest, Tegenugan Waterfall, and Tirta Empul Temple. – Tripadvisor

    Gorgeous Rice Terrace, UBUD
    So idyllic where I would recommend taking the time to walk through (wear old sneakers or closed shoes) to soak in the scenery and the tranquility of this place. This is one of the smaller rice terraces in Ubud (so not as many tourists) and our visit was right after harvesting (otherwise there would have been more greenery). We were told the larger terrace had not been harvested as yet but didn’t have the time to stop by unfortunately.

    Tegalalang Rice Terrace
    I love the rice fields in Bali, it has an amazing view, very peaceful and lovely, rice terrace blocks are shaped in steps, there are many spots to take good photos. Everything is designed authentic to attract tourist interests. I actually love hearing the songs of different birds around. I like the swing even it was a wet and rainy season I could get the chance using it🫶At the beginning I was afraid of the heights but it was ok and safe no doubt. Stuff are very friendly, prices are very cheap. I only didn’t like the toilets. Could be better.

    The most beautiful spot in all of Ubud!
    The Tegalalang Rice Terrace is a gorgeous and pocket-friendly attraction to see in Ubud Bali Indonesia! I recommend 2 hours to have enough time to walk slowly throughout the fields. Bring your cameras, good walking shoes and small change for donations booths. Learn more about this place in the video on my YouTube channel Deanna Troy Travels and my blog article on the website deannatroytravels dot com

    Beautiful part of Ubud
    Best part of Ubud. The fresh green color and the tiered planting are amazing! We had lunch close by where the seating overlooked the terraces There was some light rain, so we did not walk around much. As we drove we saw many rice fields, but the terraced area was very special. I have a new appreciation for rice! Do not miss!

    Great day
    This place is very confusing as I read many reviews before going and my experience was nothing as described. What I figured out is that there are many entrances to the fields. It just depends where your transport drops you off or where you decide to start from. I caught a Gojek motorbike there which was great. Was taken to what seemed like an official, large entrance. Paid 50k and opted out of the packages for the swings, zip line etc. I was told to come back out the same way. The first part was very touristy with the swings and staff hooting as people swung. I proceeded to follow the trekking signs and spent a couple hours going up and around the terraces. Not a hard climb and much more interesting and authentic the farther you go. There are trekking arrows along the way. Finally I came to a temple and returned, circling around. There are many nice snack stops along the way which are picturesque. As you circle back it gets more confusing and ultimately directions were needed from one of the snack shops. Many people’s houses are literally in the middle of the paths so they direct people often. That’s when I realized there were different paths, starts and finishes. I never ran into donation boxes as described. Made it back and stopped at one of the restos overlooking the terraces. Gojek isn’t so accepted in the town for return rides so I ended up hiring an elderly local to take me on his scooter who was very sweet and thankful for the 50k. Locals will ask you if you need a taxi so it is easy. In sum I recommend taking your time if you can and meandering about for a couple hours at least to really see a good chunk of the terraces. Really enjoyed the day.

    Terrific to see
    A wonderful way to pass a couple of hours. Entrance fee is now 25k btw which surprised my guide as he said it was 10k a few weeks ago. Still peanuts! Incredible views, pristine landscaping and a lover Balinese dog called “Doggy” to play with in one section! There’s a swing/rope section to take photos if you want a cheaper alternative to Aloha Ubud photos (which I took Aloha).

    A little tough with toddlers
    The view is spectacular. In my opinion , it’s more suited for older kids and adult travellers. The steps (some parts) are steep. It didn’t help that it rained the day before hence some parts were slippery and muddy. Lots have changed since the last time I was here (more than a decade ago). Now it is commercialised and the ticket package seems to aim “insta worthy” photos with the swing / nest pose …

    Go For the 8th Century Terraces
    Let me say I have never seen a place more impacted by Instagram than Bali. If you hate the photo stops and flocks of tourists, it's going to be difficult to get away from here. Just one example, Nusa Penida had no roads for cars until 7 years ago when photos of Crystal Bay started going viral (our local driver told us none of the locals visited that area before Instagram) and the tourist influx demanded infrastructure. You'll find the same tourist influence here. Given that, the terraces are striking. Plan time to walk around. We hiked down, crossed the small river, hiked across the opposite side and then worked our way back. It can be (like all of Bali) hot, so take it slow and bring water. There is a place by the swings to buy drinks. Wear good shoes. It's muddy and slick in spots. The two folks in our group who paid for the swings said they were really fun. This was our second favorite stop in Bali behind our day snorkeling with the Manti Rays. Definitely worth the stop.

    Beautiful simple lush
    It wasn’t busy when we went, and I was staggered at the beauty of the place. I love how the locals have made lots of jobs for the village, and made something out of what they would consider to be nothing, good on ‘em. It is a bit annoying hearing the swing screams dotted around, but such a fab place.

    Swing on the rice terrace
    Must check weather forecast before going here as there is nothing to explore in the rain. Honestly, the view to the terrace was quite disappointed to us! Rice terraces in the Philippines and Vietnam are much more beautiful. The swing was the activity we loved the most.

Learn all about rice paddies and the economics of space saving terraces for hilly areas. It’s really a marvelous area to view, and made super fun by the zip line, swing, and sky bike - fun!

Tegalalang rice terraces a Unesco site are a true wonder of nature. The expansive fields of vibrant green rice paddies stretch as far as the eye can see, creating a picturesque setting that’s perfect for relaxation and awe-inspiring moments. It’s a must-visit destination for anyone seeking to immerse themselves in Indonesia’s natural beauty

The Tegalalang rice terrace is one of the place we wanted to come back to since our last visit few years back. That magnificent greenery of the rice terrace. One could just sit there whole day sipping on a cup of coffee.

Alas... it has been turned into an overly hyped attractions with mega swings and ziplines. I love ziplines and all those adventures. But they don't go hand in hand with a rice terrace. It seems people are there now for the mega swing and ziplines rather than rice terrace. A pity.

Wonderful views for photos and it was fun watching people on the big swings. It is not suitable for people with any mobility issues - uneven surfaces and some high steps. It has been jazzed up for tourists with the swings and there can be some extra costs as well as the basic entry fee.

The rice terraces looked beautiful, but then you had tourists swinging in front of you with long flowing trains or the sound of tourists zzzzzipping along the ziplinesnwhich traversed the rice terraces, this totally took away from the beauty and serenity of the place and to just simply pay to come in and enjoy the quietness and beauty of the lush green terraces of new rice seedlings. Beautiful lush landscape ruined by tourists swinging on swings mounted on very tall stately coconut palms, or

Tegallalang Rice Terrace is a small valley that is a UNESCO site about 200m from east to west, and about 600m from north to south. It offers a great view of the Rice Field. The Rice Field is also home to many attractions. For example, Alas Harum Bali offers a number of programs such as Big Swing, Couple Sky Bike, Instagram photo worthy spot. In fact, Alas Harum Bali is not the only business that offers these programs, many small businesses are setup around Tegallalang Rice Terrace to offer you Swing, Instagram photo for a price. You can also find paths to walk down the Rice Terrace and up to the other side, though it is advisable to find a dry day for the walk, as the path can be quite muddy. The Tegallalang Rice Terrace is a UNESCO site that worths your visit. It is advisable to start your trip on the west side of the Tegallalang Rice Terrace as there are many more businesses on the west side and offers good competition on different product. You can also walk the track free from the west side. If you decide to enter from the east side, you may be charged an entrance fee of IDR 500,000 for the few entrance that allows you to enter. Please also be advised that as of Jan. 2024, online car hailing apps, such as Grab/BlueBird/GoJek are disabled around the Tegallalang Rice Terrace, you may need to walk away from the Rice Terrace to hail a taxi, or arrange for your own car hire.

Terrible. Absolutely awful. Herded to the front desk to pay IDR50,000 (go up 100% from last year). Looked over the viewing point and saw mindless tourists taking selfies. I have seen far superior rice fields in Java. Seems all rice fields sold of by farmers for profit and this is all that is left.

Really embarrassing. Total exploitation. Needless to say we did not enter.

We arrived at 9am and had the place almost to ourselves. Stunning views and so serene. So many great photo opportunities and the staff were so helpful in taking family photos for us.

Yes it is touristy with the added option to do the swings at 200,000IDR but worth a visit.

This place is absolutely stunning. They offer zip lining, swing photos, and other photographic opportunities. You can also walk through the rice terrace and it is really fun and pleasing to the eye. They have couple of restaurants on site. When you buy for swing photo, make sure you specify that it is the big swing that actually swings. The photos you get here will be absolutely stunning. Majority of people I saw coming here had full make up and unique dresses. The reason for that is that they are looking to take their photos on the swing. If it is raining, do not buy the ticket as you will not be able to walk the place. I highly recommend this place. It is worth the cost.

Amazing picturesque views. Avoid going in the afternoon due to hot weather. Be prepared to climb steps. Keep a water bottle handy.
