Of all the honorary names bestowed on Bali, the most famous is the ‘The Island of the Gods’.
The moniker doesn’t just come from the Hindu deities revered by the Balinese people – but is equally inspired by the incredible natural beauty and geographical wonders of the island.
These supernaturally beautiful creations dot the Balinese landscape, like reminders of an ancient time when gods roamed the earth.
Get away from the chaotic bustle of Denpasar and the garish tourist resort strips, and Bali’s natural beauty isn’t hard to find. But some of its most spectacular geological wonders will take a little more effort to uncover.
Some of them in fact, are rarely visited at all. To experience the untouched splendour of the Island of the Gods at its finest, hook up with an experienced local guide, or arrange your own transport.
Venture off the well-worn tourist trail and uncover some of these extraordinary sights!
1. Together, hike up to greater heights: Mende Hill
If you and your partner don’t have a lot in common, it’s time to share interest in a great hobby that could suit you both.
Greater views come after the hardest climb; relationship-wise too!
Fill your couple life with adventures, get out of your comfort zone, wander where the Wi-Fi is weak but where the connection between you both is the strongest!
As we all know, a relationship is like a hike up a mountain, it needs courage, strength and helping hands from both sides.
We’ve got this on the list as it is one of the most lesser-known hiking spots in Bali, which also means no crowd and privacy assured.
The hike is relatively easy but oh-so-totally worth it and scenic! The way up the hill might sometimes be challenging, but what can be better than giving each other mental and physical support? Who knows, you might both fall in love with hiking!
P.S. Girls, relax – it’s totally fine to be dirty and smelly around your partner… sometimes! They say doing sports together can bond couples together!2. The Sacred and Secret Canyon of Sukawati
Near Pura Beji Guwang in Sukawati, there’s a sacred, secret canyon that’s so incredible, it’s sure to inspire anyone and everyone.
For any artist, photographer, creative, or simply anyone who wants to be wowed by a real life view of nature’s masterpiece – this secret canyon is a must-visit.
The craziest thing about this canyon, is if you look hard enough – it is so uniquely shaped, one can even see a crying skull and other faces (lions?!) in the abstract landscape.
