We went on a private hike with Kadek through the rice paddies. We were picked up at our hotel. It took us around three hours and it was lovely. Kadek not only gave us an explanation about all the vegetables and plants that were growing...More
I did a 4 hour ricefield walking tour with Made. He guided around 5 villages, walking in the rice field, forests and the river. I enjoyed the breath taking view of the rice field. Walking in the river was the highlight of the adventure! I...More

My family and I were lucky enough to have booked a day trekking in Sidemen with Kadek. We were staying in Amed and he was happy to pick us up from there. Kadek was amazing! We had the most wonderful few hours in Sidemen, it...More
We asked the brothers is they still had some time for us to hike us through the rice fiels of Sidemen. Unfortunately they where already fullbooked (logical because we asked last minute...) Eitherway they put a lot of efford to arrange another guide for us....More
so I used this company several times that they’ve probably had enough of seeing me haha. I got to know both Komang’s pretty well, both have a great sense of humour, knowledge and likability - I could have spent my whole holiday with them! I...More
Sidemen Valley was our side tour after Besakih Temple. It is about 20 km away from Mount Agung, the highest peak of Bali. This’s a nice place to view the mountain. We engaged a local driver for our tour in Bali and it was actually...More

Not sure about the photo you mention but many people have this experience of Bali, possibly because they confine themselves to the tourist areas of Kuta, Legian, Seminyak etc. If you have the time to read, click on my name and you will see many reviews from me, outside of these areas. Sidemen however, is one of my favourites. We ride a scooter in the villages so we can see a lot more, but still walking is good there too. If you are not a rider, then don't ride - get a local to take you. They need the money, (it will be as cheap as chips anyway), are familiar with driving conditions (human and otherwise) and will be a safer bet - make sure you wear a helmet. Sidemen has great markets open every day from 3am to 8am - I have been there twice - early start but so worth it. Get there around 6.30am - you will still have plenty of time to see everything. They have weaving sweatshops also in the village, that are worth a look too - Ikat and Songkret weaving - just beautiful. The restaurants in Sidemen are excellent too and such good value for money. I climbed Mount Agung in May - it was a hard slog and you can't do that at the moment but there are plenty of other walks and treks available. I get lots of information from the forums - so find the one on Sidemen and read up. You are also fairly close to Gianyar night market and Amlapura and the Bali Aga villages. I have not visited these but will be doing so in December. These kind of places are the real Bali that not many people see. There you will experience the charm and calm of these beautiful people, with not a tourist in sight..
PM me if you want more info...
