Tegalalang Rice terraces
Surrounding gorge full of rice fields has over the years became one of the must photographed places by tourist.
Even though a lot of rice fields surrounding Ubud have been converted, terrace rice fields still remain the most popular feature of Bali landscapes. Most of them have been created around 9th century and engineered by the Balinese themselves using water coming from the mountains.
The result are step, garden like terraces designed on hillsides and mountain edges with irrigation channels that keep them wet all year round.
The unique irrigation system in Bali is known as Subak.
