An airy hike along an open ridge with wonderful views of the countryside near Ubud.”
— Almonzo Wilder
Features: River/Creek — Views
The Campuhan Ridge trail starts near the entrance to the Ibah Hotel, an easy walk west from central Ubud along Jl Raya Ubud. From the Ibah hotel's driveway, look for a paved path leading down to a bridged crossing of the river, where the route begins beside the temple.
From this lovely beginning, the route climbs up Campuhan Ridge. The ridge drops steeply on either side into adjacent river valleys, and is covered with swaying grasses that allow fantastic views in all directions. The walk feels surprisingly remote for being so close to town. Eventually the path ends at a paved road, where several cafes and galleries can be found.
