An Exiting Trunyan Camping Spot

Trunyan Village is one of the villages located in Kintamani sub-district located near Batur Lake. This village has a very unique cemetery where a dead body of human is not buried or burned like any in other villages in Bali. But it is only placed under the taru menyan tree where taru means tree meanwhile menyan means fragrant because the trees smell aromatic. The tree only grows in that area and it is able to neutralize the smell of corpses which is still in the process of natural decomposition.

DO YOU KNOW that there is a magnificent hill on the top of the village?

Trunyan Hill

Of course, the hill is known as Trunyan Hill. Its height is about 1355m above the sea level. The summit can be reached by normal physically hikers in around 1 hours and the track is not hard to be beaten. We can start our journey to the top from Trunyan Pancaran Jagat Temple, which is located below the hill.

The cold weather, the breath-taking scenery, and the short travelling time to the top are the reasons why it is suitable for camping. It can accommodate for 4-5 camp or 20-25 people. Moreover, we can bring our guitar to accompany us in singing around the campfire and also some food such as sausage that can be grilled naturally on the fire.

subak-bali

The cultural landscape of Bali consists of five rice terraces and their water temples that cover 19,500 ha. The temples are the focus of a cooperative water management system of canals and weirs, known as Subak, that dates back to the 9th century. Included in the landscape is the 18th-century Royal Water Temple of Pura Taman Ayun, the largest and most impressive architectural edifice of its type on the island. The Subak reflects the philosophical concept of Tri Hita Karana, which brings together the realms of the spirit, the human world and nature. This philosophy was born of the cultural exchange between Bali and India over the past 2,000 years and has shaped the landscape of Bali. The Subak system of democratic and egalitarian farming practices has enabled the Balinese to become the most prolific rice growers in the archipelago despite the challenge of supporting a dense population.
