When we hear a word “Tegalallang”, what comes in mind is a touristic spot of rice terrace. However, if you decide to explore a bit deeper in the area, Alas Harum agrotourism is worth stopping by on a day trip.
Like many other agrotourism in Bali, this place offers a coffee tour where you will be guided on a traditional civet (Luwak) coffee making process, right from the encounter with civet sleeping in the cage during the day to traditional process until the coffee is served on the table.
Some believe that civet coffee has a different taste than other kinds of coffee. During the tasting, you will be provided with two cups of coffee, one the Luwak and another is the regular Balinese coffee. By all means to tell the difference.
Now, enough with the coffee. Most of the visitors coming here not for the coffee! This place maximises the potential of its nice location with some unique spots for photography.
Starting with the Jungle Swing. Enjoy the terrace rice field view from the top as you swing into the air. The swing provides fun and adrenaline test that makes your heart beats faster for a moment. As boys will be boys, it is only a matter of size, so as the jungle swing. You will be in the air hundreds meter from the land. There are different swings available at the spot, at the lower and higher locations. Travellers can also do the swim as a solo or couple for those lovebirds who are excited to experience the thrill together.
Next up, the a 13-metre high head of gorilla carved on the rock. From this point on, you can follow the path and explore around to find several spots to take a perfect shot. The owner of the place has put some interesting ornaments, such as a big nest and dance bridge as the stop points for taking photos. There is also another huge carved figure of an old man smiling around some kids, called Pekak Brayut.
