Reisterrassen - Rice Terraces

Rice Terraces, Bali 2008

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.

The rice terraces 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. The cultural landscape of Bali is considered a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.

Nearly everywhere in Bali are the rice fields, with exceptions in the west of the island where it is drier. 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.
