Explore Ubud in two days – Day 2
From there it is close to the Pura Gunung Kawi temple; This 11th century temple is one of Bali’s most important ones and is beautifully located in the middle of rice fields and tropical jungle. The views are wonderful when you head down the uncountable number of stairs (almost 300 according to Lonely Planet) to visit the temple. It is some hard work to get back up but the views are definitely worth it. When you are back on top of the stairs you can head to the cafe which on a clear day holds views over some of Bali’s highest peeks.
When back in Ubud and to wind down after an intense day you should head over to Yogabarn, the famous and almost iconic Yoga place in the middle of Ubud. This place is like the heart of Yoga practice in Ubud and has an extensive and really inspiring schedule of awesome classes, accompanied by a great cafe where you can get some raw food, vegetarian lunch or dinner. If you are lucky maybe you’re there for the epic Ecstatic Dance that is offered twice a week. It is a very special experience for those who are ready to let go, open up themselves to the unknown and just flow. It is an intense 1,5 hours of cool music vibes in the Yoga barn, full of people who silently just dance, as if no-one was watching, letting go of their inner feelings and just being in the moment. A awesome experience that anyone who is a bit open minded should try out!
If you want to feel like a local Yogi then head over to the cafe “Kafe” after your class in Yogabarn. Here you will find people from the same class as you heading over afterwards to finish of the night with some healthy and nutritious food.
2 intense days in Ubud are over. I will be back for sure, very soon, and try the many other things Ubud has to offer. Summarising my experience it was wonderful, the energy fields really helped me find peace in the moment and I left with a free and happy soul inspired by all the wonderful people I met and the beauty of this island.
