Parks & Nature
Campuhan Ridge Walk is a free and easy nature trek. Campuhan in Balinese means the confluence of two rivers, spiritually significant to Balinese Hindus as energy centres, and the river junction here marks Ubud’s beginnings when in the eighth century, wandering sage Rsi Markendya was drawn to this point, establishing “Pura Gunung Lebah", and indeed the town of Ubud. The walk is not strenuous, but there’s a few uphill sections, and some stairs in places. You don’t need hiking boots, but sneakers are recommended. Take a hat as there’s little shade, and the sun can be scorching in the middle of the day. Of course, take water, but a few shops and cafes can hydrate you if you run out.

Every evening beginning after 17:00 o’clock thousands of big herons fly in to Petulu, a village about 2.5 km north of Jalan Raya Ubud, squabbling over the prime perching places before settling into the trees where they will spend the night. Next morning they leave again, only to return again in the afternoon. Nesting and egg-laying begins in November, with the fledglings taking flight in March. The villagers believe that the herons are sacred, which is enhanced by their white and yellow feathers that are holy Hindu colours, and that they bring good luck and prosperity to the village. The perfect time to get there is about an hour before sunset.
