Gate to Heaven tour

Explanations:
The tour will focus to explore at the east side of Bali, in this case is Karangasem regency.
Karangasem regency became the spot for the temples visit in Bali, there is Besakih temple as the biggest temple in Bali and Lempuyang as the highest temple in Bali that also popular called Gate to heaven, because this temple has very massive gate that has view of mount Agung in the front of it, sometimes the fog with the mountain view make the gate look like above of the cloud, there is also water palace, rice field, rolling hills, and crystal clear water. Taman Ujung Karangasem is one of the attraction also.
Often referred to ‘old Bali’, east Bali is beautiful area of place of temples, sweeping bays, volcanoes, palaces, rice paddies and ruins, of villages where crafts lost to the rest of the island are still practiced. The last Raja of Karangasem built his water palaces here: Tirta gangga, now a public bathing area, and Ujung. East Bali is packed with villages whose way of life has changed little over the centuries. None is more rooted in the past, however, than the closed, religious community of Tenganan. While most of Bali embraced and reinterpreted Hinduism over the centuries, Tenganan has tenaciously held on to its beliefs in its own divine origin. In this tiny society clothing has always been central to ritual. Today, families still painstakingly fashion geringsing or double ikat cloth, a fabric and weave found otherwise only in Gujarat, India. Bali highest volcano is Gunung Agung, the Balinese revere it as a home of the gods as well as believing it to be a replica of Mount Meru, the central axis of universe. One legend holds that the mountain is a fragment of Meru brought to Bali by the first Hindus.
