Sick of the same old tourist sights? Well, prepare for something completely different. Explore Bali's darkest corners as you discover authentic village life, culture and tradition on this day tour of Bali's spookier side. It starts with a scenic journey to Mount Batur where a boat is waiting to take you across the lake to mysterious Trunyan village. This isolated village, only accessible by boat, has some sinister traditions. Inhabited by Bali Aga, descendants of the original Balinese, the funereal custom is to leave the dead to decompose within rudimentary bamboo cages, creating a macabre scene of skulls and bones, whilst the stench is absorbed by the fragrances of a nearby Taru Menyan tree. After this chilling but fascinating encounter, sail back to your lunch stop of traditional Balinese fare. There's time to see the panoramic views of the luscious expanses of Bali's famed rice terraces before a cultural stop off at majestic Ubud Palace and a browse of the market for arty souvenirs.

Pick Up Details:
Visiting the Truyan village that is only accessible by boat was equal parts exciting and creepy. I got the chills as the guide told us about the rituals they used to perform. This is a must-see place when you're in Bali!
