Campuhan Ridge Walk is a free and easy nature trek, popular among repeat visitors to the central highland town of Ubud. The hike of 9 kilometers lets you enjoy cool fresh air and probably the most gorgeous hillside vista in the region.
Getting to the starting point is relatively easy. The ridge walk begins at the Ibah Hotel, and the main access is a concrete path just down from this boutique hotel’s main entrance. A small bridge over the revered Campuhan River leads to the majestic Pura Gunung Lebah temple complex. Signs before the temple clearly show the directions to follow along the route, which borders the eastern walls of the temple. These intricately carved walls and the towering ‘meru’ tiers of the shrines visible from the path provide an exotic and cultural touch to the beginning of this nature walk. You might meet a few fellow trekkers on their way back from their earlier jog, but most of the time you’ll have the path to your own.
A few hundred meters and up the slopes from the temple, the view widens to reveal the vast hills that make up the valley hinterland. The best time to enjoy the Campuhan Ridge Walk is early morning and late afternoon when the temperature is cool and the skies show their best hues during sunrise and sunset. There are slopes as far as the eye among an undulating sea of green, covered in tall reed grass, which at times are harvested by the locals for thatched roofing, a typical practice in traditional Balinese architecture.
