Tegallalang is famous for its rice field steps which are often used as a tourist photo spot when visiting Gianyar Regency, Bali, Indonesia. However, there is also a tourist attraction in the middle of rice fields that offers a variety of interesting activities, namely Alas Harum Agrotourism.
Based on information on the official website, the tourist site has six unique photo spots. Tourists can also play bicycles or extreme swings, and buy civet coffee at Alas Harum Store. The photo spots in question are Dancing Bridge, Birds Nest, Pekak Brayut, Gorilla, Glass Flooring, and Education Temple.
For Dancing Bridge, Alas Harum Agrotourism offers a photo experience on a swinging bridge. In addition to taking pictures, the place can be used to see views of Tegallalang’s typical terraced rice fields, as well as the river flow below.
While Bird Nest, tourists can take pictures in a round bird-shaped nest made of twig arrangements. Tourists need not worry about falling because there is a net underneath. For Brayut and Gorilla Pekek, both places offer selfies with unique shaped stone carvings. Both are located close together.
But for Pekek Brayut, tourists can take pictures in several unique steps. There are also mossy stone carvings that make up some humans. While Gorillas, tourists can take pictures with mossy stone carvings that are shaped like a gorilla’s face.
One that may be rarely found in some tourist attractions is the attraction of the glass floor. In Alas Harum Agrotourism, tourists can take pictures there while looking at the views of the terraced rice fields. However, if you are afraid of heights, you should not bow when taking pictures in Glass Flooring.
If you want a photo in a temple located in the middle of the water, tourists can go directly to the Education Temple. In addition to photos on the temple, you can also photograph on several steps leading to the temple.
