Trekking Sidemen – Sangkan Gunung Temple

5 km 2 Hours (without stops) Medium A sarong is required to enter the temple Donation / Ticket

Trekking in Sidemen is wonderful with this nice hike that starts directly from our holiday accommodation. The walk leads along the Sidemen village Dusun Luah before taking some weathered, in stone carved stairs and through the jungle towards one of the village’s main temple.

From there a path opens in the vegetation, revealing splendid vistas in the occasionally opening canopy over Sidemen Valley. The track eventually takes us to the village of Sangkan Gunung. On the hill over the village is Pura Sangkan Gunung.

At its base, where some more stairs begin, is a small hut where tickets can be bought to access the temple. Once inside the compound visitors can walk around freely and enjoy the stunning views. Towards the North, if weather permits, we can see Mount Agung. On the compounds southern end the scene stretches over dense jungle towards south Bali and the sea.

Leaving the temple, at the end of the stairs that go straight down, we turn left to get back on the road. It menders through the forest we have seen from the top of the temple and occasionally passes in front of local dwellings. It’s a wonderful stroll along this quiet, mostly shaded, little road that we follow till we arrive again at our holiday accommodation.

To all our guests we send a digital guidebook with information about our home and some local tips and recommendations for the Sidemen area. In this guidebook is a detailed description of this wonderful, self guided Sidemen Trekking trek which also does include a map so you don’t get lost.

Instead of Ubud go to Sidemen

The only regret that most people have that come the first time to Sidemen is that they haven’t stayed longer.

Since not long ago Sidemen used to be a one night stop for many that did go to or came from the Gili Islands via the harbour in Padang Bai. Yet Sidemen has so much to offer and many locals and Bali experts say that Sidemen is what Ubud used to be a 30 years ago. … Read More
