A Journey to Sangeh Monkey Forest
WakaLandCruise is proud to present an adventure, which takes visitors on a beautiful journey, by Land Rover or Land Cruiser, to witness the nature, culture, agriculture and mystique of rural Bali.
The trail leads to the cool, dark and mysterious Sangeh Monkey Forest, home to about 700 long tailed macaques and about 2000 straight-trunked ‘Palahlar’ (Dipterocarpus Trinervis) trees. There will be plenty of time to feed the monkeys who are considerably more benevolent than their cousins at Ubud’s Sacred Monkey Forest, and the guide will provide guests with bags of peanuts.
The trip focuses on the Sangeh area in Bali’s central highlands, following with a visit to the picturesque Tirta Taman Mumbul in the village of Sangeh. On the opposite side of the road is Pancoran Solas, a holy spring, which is channeled into a shallow bathing pool through 11 waterspouts guarded by statues of 11 Hindu gods. An option to do blessing guided by Mangku or Hindu Priest is also available.
Leaving the Pancoran Solas, the four-wheel drive jeep will take you to Luwus Village and visit The Secret Garden to see mini fabric, educational heritage museum, and a traditional beauty factory called Oemah Herborist which produces organic soap, body lotion, body scrub, and many beauty products.
Delicious lunch is served at the restaurant including tea and Bali coffee with the magical view of rice fields. After lunch, the WakaLandCruise vehicles will drive the guests back to their respective hotels.
