There are always more new places to visit in Bali. As you know, Bali is a perfect island. You can enjoy everything here. Just name it 😉
This time, I visited Bukit Belong (Belong Hill) in Klungkung. Belong Hill is located in Gunaksa Village. To reach there is simply easy. Just go through Ida Bagus Mantra by pass about 1 hour and you will see the sign Kusamba Village. Keep going then untill you pass by a bridge with the view of a temple on the hill. You are almost there.
At a traffic light with direction to Gunaksa Village, turn right and follow the road down. Belong hill is visible from afar. At the time I visited (February 2016), there was a road construction going on. A gate was even built. Local said that investor will build a housing area on the hill. Oh no!
So yeah, I thought I was lucky visiting the hill before it turns out ugly with houses on it. Anyway, I just wanted to feel free and serenity on the hill as well as to enjoy teh stunning view from above it. OMG, believe me. It was painfully beautiful! *_*
But I wanted to go higher! So I climbed more. The bush made me itchy but it couldn’t stop me. I kept going till I reached a tree. Hufff…it was quite an effort tho. I stopped there and stood up. Enjoying the magnificent view. Climbing up was paid off!
I couldn’t help not to climb up the tree as it was so lonely. I just wanted to keep the tree accompany :D. It was just serene and lovely to watch the view of green paddy fields down the hill with the bright blue sky and the ocean in the distance. I was so grateful. How could people destroy that peace and beauty for money?!!
Anyway, I really had a great time there. Ah, before I forget, there was a lady asking for donation for whatever reason. She didn’t speak Indonesian, not to mention English. She said it was as i willed to give but when she saw my friend, she asked for more. Hahahaha…human being! Some people just can smell money even from afar.
