Skulls & Bones Trunyan Village Tour

A unique tour to witness a different take on death

Bali New Activity

Discover an isolated Balinese tribe and their unusual funeral traditions - a unique experience in Bali...not for the faint of heart!

  • Visit one of Indonesia’s most haunting locations at the home of the Trunyan, an isolated Balinese tribe that leaves their dead unburied and preserves their skulls
  • Cross beautiful Lake Batur to one of Bali’s most secluded villages
  • Stop by Ubud’s many scenic viewpoints and see breathtaking rice terraces set among lush landscapes
  • Lunch at a local Balinese restaurant and stroll through Ubud’s traditional art markets
What We Love:

Have a taste for the occult? Love visiting sites from horror movies? Bali’s isolated Trunyan village practices a very untraditional funeral ceremony of leaving their dead to decompose under a banyan tree, covered with nothing but a simple cloth and bamboo cage. Once decomposed, skulls are collected and assembled on a special altar in an isolated location on Lake Batur. Start your visit to the Trunyan with a boat ride across Lake Batur to their isolated village. There, you can witness their customs firsthand. The people believe that the special trees absorb the smell of rotting flesh…you can be the judge. After your visit to the Trunyan, get your mind off death by visiting the other Bali Aga tribes in the region. Stop by some picturesque rice terraces near Ubud to bring your spirits up and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. Stroll through the lively art markets at Ubud and see the majestic Ubud Palace before heading back.

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!
