West Bali is simply beautiful and offers an array of adventure activities to indulge in, these days tourism agents have understood our needs and are customizing our trips and giving, I am an adventure lover and so I took up this two day and one night adventure tour to Bali. West Bali is one place that has plenty of adventurous spots in store for us. Some of the best locations over here can never be experienced anywhere else in the world. Apart from indulging in adventure activity this place also gave scope for enjoying Bali nature at its best. We were given plenty of boarding locations to head towards our activity locations, our first day started with visit to the bird conservation, driving alongside the Gilimanuk bay coast line, the best part of the trip was that we got plenty of scope to experience the tropical forests of West Bali, then we enjoyed the plantations locations here and halted at many places to capture the natural beauty alongside. Riding on the muddy roads were super cool, jeeps were provided to us and the trekking part was not only fun but adventurous too. The next day was visit to the waterfalls and local villages. The trek is challenging and needs lot of stamina though. This trip is novel and great in fact. I personally feel that the organizers could have reduced the number of intake, so that the place can be enjoyed in a better way. Well all these being said, the food, stay and service were a great value for our penny spent!
