At Tirta Empul

Pura Uluwatu

Access at ULUWATU TEMPLE

The Uluwatu temple sits on a cliff over the Indian Ocean. A path leads along the coastline to the left and right of the temple, offering fantastic views over the cliff and the temple. The paths have now been equipped with several ramps, although some of them are rather steep.

The temple itself is only accessible by stairs. The stairs on the right-side entrance are most feasible to climb.  

 

Access at TANAH LOT TEMPLE

Tanah Lot and Batu Bolong temples sit on rocks in the ocean. The easiest access is through the upper (northern) entrance where a good path along the coast offers magnificent views.

To get closer to the Tanah Lot Rock, there is a southern entrance with a side path for wheelchair users. At low tide, it is possible to get onto the base of the rock, but it is uneven and slippery. 

The temple itself is closed expect for praying.

Tanah Lot

Taman Ayun

Access at TAMAN AYUN TEMPLE

The front part of the park is easy to visit with even paths and ramps, leading up to the gate of the main court. To surround this main court, some few steps need to be overcome.   

Access at GOA LAWAH TEMPLE

Several short stairs have to be negotiated to get into the inner yard. Within the small temple it is easy to move, there are no further steps. Definitely worthwhile.

Goa Lawah

Tenganan

Access at VILLAGE TENGANAN

The village is easy to enter on newly build ramps. Paths and slopes inside are partly very bumpy, although distances are only short. It is possible to enter at least two houses via ramps.

Access at TAMAN UJUNG

We can enter the park through a side-gate to avoid stairs. Exploring the wide park is easy on even paths.

Some buildings within the park can only be entered by stairs. 

Taman Ujung

Sideway down at Lempuyang

Access at LEMPUYANG TEMPLE 

The complex consists of 6 individual temples high up into the mountain, alongside 1700 steps.

We only visit the first temple, amazing Penataran Agung. With permission from the traditional village chief we use a side street with our car, leading up to the top of this first temple. From there it is about 200 meters down the path and then a few steps into the Tempelhof with its magnificent views!

Access at TIRTA EMPUL TEMPLE

Most of the complex is easily accessible. By side paths with some ramps, the inner part of the temple is easy to reach. The central bathing area is surrounded by a wall with stairs, but you can also watch the bathing activities from the outside through the gates. Unfortunately, a basin with holy springs behind a wall can, so far, only be seen standing up. 

Tirta Empul

Besakih

Access at BESAKIH TEMPLE

Stairs are an important part of the temple’s philosophy, they lead the spiritual person upwards and closer to the sacred Mount Agung. So there are plenty of stairs at Besakih. But: 

On a sunny day, there is nothing better than to enjoy the spectacular view of the temple and volcano from one of the ground-levels. Our team assists with the short flights of stairs.

With special permission we can also go by car to the upper area of the temple, to the ‘Dark Tempel’, to view the great temple complex from above. 

Access at KINTAMANI

Kintamani is a small town on the ancient rim of the Batur volcano. Enjoy the fantastic view on lake and volcano from the terrace of an easy accessible restaurant. 

Kintamani

Buddhist monastry

Access at 

BRAHMAVIHARA ARAMA BUDHA BANJAR – the Buddhist Monastery

The terraced complex has numerous stairs. With permission we use a back entrance and go by car to mid-level. A slope leads up to the top level.

Access at ULUN DANU BERATAN TEMPLE

The park area up to the lake’s shore is easy to explore with even paths and integrated ramps.

Pura Ulun Danu Beratan

Sangeh monkey forest

Access at SANGEH MONKEY FOREST

Most paths are even and equipped with slopes or ramps, making a round trip in the forest relatively easy. 

Access at JATILUWIH

There are many small cafes along the panorama road, to sit and enjoy the view.

Some trekking paths leading down into the valley can be used with wheelchairs for some distance, before they turn into grassy paths between rice fields. One of these paths was recently paved.
