What To Expect

 

This is a beautiful paved walk along the Campuhan ridge. This walk definitely showcases the natural side to Ubud. Many trees and hills, the Campuhan Ridge Walk has the scenery of a jungle or forest rather than that of rice terraces and fields. There are rice fields further along the walk near Karsa Kafe but there are other rice terraces and fields that require less walking to get to and are closer to Ubud centre. There are also more impressive and popular Rice terraces such as Tegalalang or Jatiluwih.

When to go Campuhan Ridge Walking

 

We always try to start the walk as early as we can. As long as the sun is up the earlier the better. The walk is pretty exposed to the elements and gets hot quickly! Start between 6-7:30 in order not to melt too much! At this time you may also bump into a few locals on their morning walk before the sun rises. We have never done this walk in the late afternoon, but the same principle applies of avoiding the sun and enjoying a slightly cooler walk. So either early morning or late afternoon is when to do the Campuhan Ridge Walk.


How Long Does It Take

 

From The IBAH sign to Karsa Kafe and back (Including a stop at Karsa Kafe) you should allow around 2hrs. This we feel is not walking too quick and also stoping for 15-25mins. You know us, we did some videos and photos along the way too

Definitely take some water, you will not get the opportunity until you reach the end. We did not take water the first time we did this walk and wished we had!

What Else Do I Need To Know

 

As mentioned, the Campuhan Ridge walk is exposed to the weather go early morning or late afternoon when the sun is not as ridiculously hot, and also if it looks like a storm is coming it would be best to save the walk for another day.
