Campuhan Ridge Walk is an easy nature trip popular with repeat visitors to the center of Ubud. This trail presents a beautiful hinterland to escape from the hustle-bustle of the city. While the hike allows you to enjoy the cool fresh air and beautiful hill views, it also allows you to reduce calories also with 9 km of hilly paths.
It takes around an hour to travel if you depart from Denpasar. Arriving in the center of Ubud, drive the vehicle west towards the Ibah Hotel. Arriving at the Ibah Hotel, turn left towards the downhill road until you reach the Vocational School. You can park the vehicle on this schoolyard then walk about 10 meters. Road access to Campuhan Hill tour is to the right of the temple. You can trekking by pedaling a bicycle or on foot, just as much fun as you can.
A small bridge over the sacred Campuhan River leads to the majestic Gunung Lebah Temple complex. Signs in front of the temple clearly indicate directions to follow along the route, which borders the east wall of the temple. The intricately carved walls and the towering 'Meru' level of the temple seen from this road give an exotic and cultural touch at the beginning of this natural journey.
You might meet some fellow trekkers on the way back from jogging before. The best time to enjoy Campuhan Ridge Walk is morning and evening, when the temperature is cool and when the sky shows its best color at sunrise and sunset.
On sunny mornings or afternoons, you can enjoy the stunning backdrop of Mount Agung and small village houses surrounded by rice fields. Continuing north along the ridge, the tall grass turned into rice fields in the small village of Bangkiang Sidem. There is a small cafe here where you can take a break to enjoy a drink and admire the view. If you are a more serious and curious trekker, you can continue west to the outskirts of Bangkiang Sidem, go down to the Cerik River and then go up to the Payogan hill in Kedewatan village.
Campuhan Ubud doesn't only offer beautiful natural scenery. Refreshing on this hill is also able to refresh your mind. Beautiful scenery on Campuhan Ubud looks more fun with trekking tracks that are neatly arranged for 2 kilometers. Inhaling the fresh air of Ubud on top of Campuhan Hill can be an unforgettable story.
If you have a plan to come to Campuhan Hill, it's good to come in the morning or evening because when the morning the air is still very fresh with a warm sun. Don't come when noon if you don't want to be exposed to the heat of the sun because there is no shelter.
