Nestled peacefully in the rural heart of the Karangasem region, this mid-eastern island escape is often overlooked, but we like to think of the Sideman valley as one of Bali’s true hidden gems and most well preserved secrets. Here, fresh rivers flow through a sea of vibrant green rice paddies which are tightly patched together by a complex network of aqueducts and hiking trails. Try a fresh glass of local Tuak (fermented palm wine) to quench your thirst from the mid day sun or learn the culinary art of traditional Balinese cooking. The natural beauty of the Sideman Valley is surely unmatched and you will certainly not find a closer vantage point to the mighty Mt. Agung than this!
