Hiking through the rice paddies of Munduk & Mayong
Munduk and Mayong, located in the highlands just behind Villa Bossi, are small farming villages still waiting to be discovered by the general tourist. Totally unspoiled, these picturesque towns, which hug verdant mountainsides, surrounded by coffee plantations, waterfalls and rice paddies, bring to mind the legend of Shangri-La and have everything for an unforgettable trek through the surrounding villages and rice fields.
In its latest edition, The Lonely Planet considers Munduk an absolute highlight of any Bali holiday : "The simple village of Munduk is one of Bali's most appealing mountain retreats. It has a cool misty ambience set among lush hillsides covered with jungle, rice, fruit trees and pretty much anything else that grows on the island. Waterfalls tumble of precipices by the dozen. There are hikes and treks galore ..."
A hiking or mountain biking tour through the rice paddies of Munduk & Mayong is a ‘must-do’ during your stay at Villa Bossi. Villa Bossi recommends Bali Outback for the organization of such tours. They offer different trails with a varying degree of duration (1 - 4 hours) and difficulty. Some operators in Munduk offer longer trails. Our staff will be more than happy to make the necessary arrangements.
