Sidemen Village is East Bali’s answer to the famous Jatiluwih rice terraces in West Bali – a stunning panoramic view of rural ingenuity and heritage. Here you’ll find a countryside community down the southern hillsides of Bali’s tallest mountain, Mount Agung. Swathes of paddies and plantations around the village are tended by their respective farming communities.

The village area is one of the main destinations for day trips through the eastern region. It’s where you can find a ‘real Bali’ scene that offers both beautiful Bali rice paddy landscapes and interesting cultural highlights.

The scenic and traditional Sidemen Village is along the Klungkung and Besakih Temple route, roughly a 2-hour drive from Ubud. The main highlights are its expanses of rice fields, with many available tours offering nature and paddy treks. These offer you an immersive experience, often traversing local plantations and crossing rivers. You can also enjoy a leisurely bicycle tour through the downhill routes of the village.
