Bali Aga Sunrise Trekking

Incredible Views and Intriguing Culture

The Bali Aga are often called the ‘original’ Balinese because their ancestors were here long before the Majapahit Hindus came over from the island of Java in the 14th century. Today there are only a few Bali Aga villages left, but in those villages the people still practice ancient animistic rituals and retain their unique culture. Trunyan is Bali’s best known Bali Aga village, and a fascinating place to visit. Located on the eastern shore of Lake Batur at the base of Mount Abang, Trunyan is a small village with a temple that dates back to at least the 10th century. No outsiders are allowed in the temple, although visitors are allowed to visit the unique cemetery that Trunyan is famous for. Unlike the majority of Balinese people, the villagers from Trunyan do not cremate their dead. Instead they put the bodies of their deceased in bamboo structures and place them under a Taru Menyan tree until only the skeleton remains. Strangely the trees seem to mask the smell of the bodies. After the bodies decompose, the villagers line up the skulls on a special stone shrine. This sunrise trek will take you up the caldera wall on the eastern shore of Lake Batur. Once at the top you can take in stunning views of the sun rising behind Mount Rinjani on Lombok and slowly shedding light over the villages, lakes, mountains and sea all along Bali’s eastern coast. After soaking up the sights, we’ll trek down to Trunyan village. In Trunyan your guide will fill you in on the history of the village, and let you in on intriguing secrets about the ancient rituals that take place here. You will also get to see what day-to-day life is like for these particular Bali Aga people, and learn what makes them truly unique from any other group of people in Bali and the world. The approximate trekking time is 3-4 hours
