For us, it was a disappointment. Apparently hundreds of birds descend on this village every evening covering the trees and it supposed to be a spectacular sight. We only saw approx. 100 birds in total over a number of trees which was very "ho hum"...More

Was nervous as I saw some reviews that mentioned cock fighting - there was definitely none while we were there. The vendor selling drinks was very friendly and informative.

A short ride by car or motorbike (20) minutes to a small village north of Ubud in the rice paddy region. The scenery was amazing and the vibe mystical. A nomimal entry fee of 20K IDR approximately per person (less than $2 us ) ....More
