Jatiluwih Rice Terraces Overview

The Jatiluwih Rice Terraces are Bali's largest rice terraces, with approximately 600 hectares of rice fields. Explore the highlands and witness the stunning views of this settlement at the foot of Mount Batukaru and take amazing photos to make your trip to this destination memorable. At sunset, the rice fields take on a mystical appearance, and it's a sight to behold.

Jatiluwih Rice Terraces are known for its stunning scenery, and it is a mesmerising place to witness with our Bali trip packages. UNESCO has recognised Jatiluwih as part of the world's cultural heritage, and it will not allow the building of star-rated or city hotels, which is even better for tourists to adore this untouched beauty. The drive up to the highlands of Jatiluwih from the island's south takes around 2 hours and is located about 700 meters above sea level in the Penebel district of the Tabanan regency.

As you approach the region, lush green views will greet you, but the major vantage point is higher up in the village. The main area demands a fee, which is normally covered by tour companies and goes to the local village cooperative fund. The vista from halfway up is simply breathtaking, with 180 degrees of gently sloping terraces stretching as far as the eye can reach.

The name Jatiluwih is made up of two words. "Real" is Jati, and "excellent" or "beautiful" is Luwih. So even the name in the native language conveys the beauty of the location. The breathtaking landscapes along the way to Jatiluwih can be seen as you drive the tight, winding road. This region is the only spot in the world where three rice harvests occur each year.
