Mumbai: A traveller’s paradise with something in store for everyone, Bali is an excellent destination for you, whether you prefer the thrilling outdoors or the exciting nightlife. With loads of opportunities for a super-fun time, check out the things you can do in Bali that will take you away from the regular honeymoon haunts.
An early morning trek to Mount Batur is a must if you are a fan of nature trails and looking for eye-candy locations. An active volcano, that’s one of Bali’s most sacred mountains, Mount Batur offers spectacular views of the sunrise, shrouded by dense clouds bursting onto the horizon in a riot of colours. And the exertion is definitely worth it when you soak in the panoramic view over Lake Batur, lit up with the bright rays of the morning sun.
An extreme sport that entails hiking, trekking, and rappelling, Canyoning is gradually making its way into the popular domain of tourists. Traverse the deep ravines of Balinese jungles, aboard your canoe, and test your endurance wading through deep rivers. Northern Bali, especially Kalimudah, is quite popular amongst canyoning enthusiasts due to the many waterfalls it houses, and there are various terrains available for different levels. But if you intend to push the envelope with this sport, head to Tukad Hijau. The six-hour trek to the canyoning point is enthralling and the final descent down the waterfall will give you the strongest adrenaline kick you’ve ever had. This daredevil water ride is best relished during the rainy season when the rivers are brimming with water.
If you’re plate isn’t full and you’re looking for more options, then Mahana Point is where you should head to. A quaint little bar located on a cliff top in Nusa Ceningan, Mahana Point is your regular bar except for one small detail; the chance to jump off a high cliff into the crystal blue waters below! Sounds exciting? It definitely is.
While Bali is great during the day, its true colours unfold after the sun sets. Bali’s nightlife is exactly what anyone would wish it to be – loud, vibrant and spectacularly fun. Once you head out to explore the night, the city and its people welcome you with open arms like a friend. Practically every nook and corner in Bali is lined up with clubs and lounges open throughout the night and there’s something available to cater to every individual’s tastes.
“Bali is a tropical paradise that offers a wide range of amusement options and an equally diverse range of nighttime fun,” says Viren Batra, co-founder of Nirvana Excursions. “It’s a wondrous tourist haven, with a unique blend of cultures that’s perfect for everyone, adventure-seeker or not!”
