    The rice terraces are on low hill slopes, so don't expect sweeping mountain views in real life. The area is very busy and (sigh) a tourist trap, so brace yourselves.  more »

    Spectacular, in addition, in this rice terrace not charge you, not as the case of Jatiluwih, you have to pay to enter the village, of course nosotroa do not pay a rupee, we said we were going of step and ready. Tegalalang worth it, better go early to avoid crowds

    You can’t take a visit to Ubud and not go here. Best to go early in the morning as it can get very very busy with tourists and can get very hot climbing the rice terraces if that’s your thing. Some gr...  more »

    I absolutely loved this place. Getting there takes a while but it is definitely worth it. The views are fantastic and just like you imagine them. The walk is a bit exhausting but if you imagine the farmers doing this every day many times your respect for them grows. Sadly, there are many "stations" where you have to pay a small fee/ donation in order to get through. We got an entrance ticket nobody cared for and then had to pay extra to get anywhere. Due to that only 4 stars. Secret tip: A little down the road was a coffee manufacture with the super expensive animal digestive tract fermented coffee beans (I forgot the name of the animal...). They have free tasting of tee and coffee made by them and for a cheap price you can even get the "super coffee". While not all that great in my opinion, the tasting is super interesting and absolutely worth a visit.

    Be careful of people ask for a donation. Donation is freedom. Just give them 5000. Not more. Unfortunately it is begin a museum. So people earn more money with donation and absolutely no explain of the hard work of the rice. The view is better when u go up and turn right.

    So many tourists and forced donations to walk up the terraces. It is not worth to go there. I would recommend to turn around if you are with a scooter, take a road other than the main road. You will find rice plantations without any tourists. It is much more enjoyable and relaxing.

    Beautiful place. Very popular among tourists, expect a lot of people there. Still worth it. Be prepared to donate small amounts of money a few times during your walk through the terraces. It's ok to donate 10,000 Rp or more at each spot. Be careful when walking up and down the stairs: some (just a few) of them are quite old.

    Great place for a walk. Saw many parents who brought kids that somehow also made the climb. Enjoyed a coconut at the top and met a new friend
