Exploring East Bali on Tour de Manggis

The East Bali landscape around the resort of Alila Manggis is renowned for its spectacular beauty, where emerald-green rice terraces meet lush forested hillsides, dominated by Mount Agung, Bali’s highest mountain. As part of its extensive menu of destination experiences, Alila Manggis has created the new ‘Tour de Manggis’ the latest in a set of experiences that allow guests to explore the magnificent landscape.

Tour de Manggis offers a variety of walking and cycling adventures that climb up and down mountains, cross rivers, weave through villages, past temples, and meander down to the coast. With options for every level from beginners to experienced trekkers, they provide a fun way to explore the Balinese countryside and experience first-hand the local way of life, customs and traditions.

Walking routes include the half-day river hopping and trek through thick forests and plantations dotted along the Jangga riverside, followed by a swim at the Tirta Gangga Water Palace and concluding with a lunch of local authentic cusine.

Other treks included the Grand Panoramic Trek, which journeys from the small village of Sidemen up to the sacred and secluded Hindu temple located on top of Sangkan mountain, The Mount Agung Trek, which provides an irresistible adventure for experienced trekkers. Guests depart the resort in the early hours of the morning to embark on a challenging 7-hour trek up the slopes of Mount Agung, reaching the summit in time for sunrise and breakfast.

If going uphill seems too daunting, guests cab hop on a bike for a downhill ride. Mountain to Sea covers 42 kilometres at a leisurely pace, cycling from Sogra Village down the forested slopes of Mount Agung, past salak plantations and mountain vistas, with a chance to explore local villages along the way. The trek ends at Pasir Putih beach, a refreshing swim in the sea followed by a picnic lunch.
