Welcome to North of Ubud
North of Ubud, Bali becomes cooler and more lush. Ancient sites and natural beauty abound. A popular route from Ubud north towards Gunung Batur or east to towards Gunung Batur passes through Tegallalang, home to the photogenic Ceking rice terraces, and then continues via Tampaksiring, passing Gunung Kawi Sebatu, Pura Gunung Kawi and Tirta Empul en route. The scenery on this route is green and extremely picturesque – you'll see farmers working in their fields, colourful flags fluttering in the wind and plenty of rice terraces and roadside shrines.
