Mount Kawi Overview

Mount Kawi in Bali stands tall as a revered spiritual site and a breathtaking natural wonder. Nestled amidst lush greenery, this ancient temple complex offers a serene escape for visitors seeking tranquility and cultural immersion. Carved into the cliffside, the majestic shrines and sacred springs evoke a sense of awe and reverence.

On the base of the lush green river valley lies the oldest and even the largest ancient monument of Bali, Mount Kawi which is also known as Gunung Kawi. Mount Kawi comprises 10 candi or shrines i.e. memorials that have been carved out of the face of the rock in the imitation of actual statues which you can explore as part of your chosen Bali trip package.

Highlights: With an awe-inspiring height of 8 meters, Mount Kawi protects the niches that are cut into the sheer cliff face. Towards the northern peripheries of the town, the view is magnificent as you take a stroll through the ancient terraced rice fields which are just as flawless as any other in Bali. To reach the top of the monument, you’ll have to climb over 270 steps.
