Reisterrassen - Rice Terraces

Rice Terraces, Bali 2007

The landscape of Bali is characterized by green, irrigated rice terraces. On all mountains, the basins are drawn up in steps up the slope, intermittently interrupted by a palm tree, a hut or a shrine. This landscape is today a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Reisterrassen have been laid out by hand ever since. So you often see people working in the rice fields and sometimes a cow pulling a plow.

Almost everywhere in Bali are rice fields, only in the west of the island you can’t find them because it is too dry. The Ubud area is particularly famous for its rice fields. But also in Pupuan and its surroundings in Belimbing and Kekeran you have a great view of the terraces.
