Visiting Tegalalang rice terraces

Tegalalang is a small village located in the Ubud area of Bali, Indonesia. It is known for its stunning rice terraces, which have become a popular tourist attraction in recent years.

The rice terraces in Tegalalang are among the most beautiful and photogenic in Bali. They are characterized by their steeply terraced fields, which have been carved into the hillsides over centuries of farming. The fields are irrigated using a traditional Balinese water system, and the lush green of the rice plants is a striking contrast against the blue sky and surrounding jungle.

Even though a lot of rice fields surrounding Ubud have been converted into other uses, terraced rice paddy fields still remain the most popular feature of Bali landscapes. Most of them have been created around 9th century and engineered by the Balinese themselves using water coming from the mountains. The result are step, garden like terraces designed on hillsides and mountain edges with irrigation channels that keep them wet all year round.
