If you start from Villa Orchid to the east, you will pass lots of rice fields and rice terraces, too, till you finally reach the village of Jungjungan. In front of the mystic temple of this village the "Kecak" dance is performed on each Monday evening. About 140 to 160 villagers from Jungjungan take part in this dance, - each family supports the dance event with at least one active dancer.

Near this village the way splits either to Taman or to Petulu. Petulu is famous for its white heron birds (Kokokan). Thousands of these birds nest in the trees right and left to the village's main and between two temples. These animals are protected by the villagers of Petulu, because they believe, the birds host the souls of people who were killed in a massacre in 1965. Since that year the elegant heron birds attrakt tourists to come to Petulu. Following the main road you will reach the big road to Tegallalang, which would bring you further north to Lake Batur and Kintamani. To the south, this road will lead you to Ubud, while you pass many small shops with all kinds of handicrafts.

Who chooses the other road to at that road crossing, we mentioned above, will come to Taman and Kutuh and finally to Ubud. This way is accompanied by little streams or brooks, - which are part of the Balinese water system the "Subak". All roads pass temples and rice fields with working farmers (petani), often you may see Balinese washing their clothes or themselves in these small waterways.

For the easiest way back you can use a so called "transport" or a taxi. Wherever someone walks on the road, he is asked for "transport".
The tariff back to Villa Orchid Bali costs about 15.000 to 20.000 Rupiah. To know this can often shorten unnecessary price debates.
