In this guide I’ve included everything you need to know about Tegalalang rice terrace, including how to get there from Ubud, what to bring with you, and tips for making it a great visit.
Location of Tegalalang Rice Terrace Ubud ?
Tegalalang rice Terrace is a series of rice paddies located close to Ubud, in the centre of Bali, famous for its terraced layout. This is a traditional Balinese irrigation system known as subak. Positioned in a valley the Tegalalang rice terraces offer extremely scenic lookouts over the rice fields and surrounding green landscape. It’s a very popular tourist hotspot in Bali and a must-see in many Bali itineraries.
How to get to Tegalalang rice fields from Ubud
The Tegalalang rice terrace is a short 20-minute drive north of Ubud (or a 2 hour walk but I wouldn’t recommend that in the Bali heat). The road is mostly straight and they’re pretty easy to reach if you have your own scooter or car and want to drive there alone. There is a big parking area close to the rice paddies where you can drop your vehicle for a small fee (around 10,000 IDR). If you’re not motorised you can get a taxi, we called one through our hotel and for 200,000 IDR (around 11 EUR) he drove us there, waited for us to visit the rice paddies and then drove us back to Ubud. If you plan on getting a taxi just make sure you agree on the price before getting in the car.
Tips before you visit

Tegalalang Rice Terrace Entrance fee and Opening Hours
Tegalalang Rice Terrace is open everyday from 06:00 am to 7:00 pm. As almost of tourist attractions in Bali will charge you for entrance fee. So How much is Tegalalang Rice Terrace Entrance fee?
so the entrance fee for this attraction is Rp 10.000 per person. but if you were to visit super early in the morning before any of the locals get there you wouldn’t have to pay access. but considering the donations they ask for are small and it’s their livelihood. I wouldn’t try to get around them. I’ve seen tourists just storm past the locals saying that if it’s a donation they shouldn’t be forced to pay one.
Just make sure to bring small notes with you, as they will most likely say they don’t have change and you don’t want to end up overpaying at every checkpoint. The average donation is usually around 10,000 IDR (which is more or less 0.57 EUR). Depending on how many donations you’re willing to pay you can decide how far into the rice terraces you want to go, we stopped after the first few checkpoints since we felt like we’d seen enough of the rice fields.
Visit early in the day to avoid the heat and crowds
As you can imagine the weather in Bali is very hot and humid, and this is one of the main tourist attractions on the island. I would recommend visiting the Tegalalang rice terrace early in the morning so that you can avoid both the heat and crowds.

There are shops and cafes nearby on the main road, however once you’re in the rice fields there are no services available so if you plan on staying there for a while I would recommend bringing water and snacks. Especially water, given the heat you don’t want to get dehydrated.
