Bali is the most popular and, accordingly, the most developed Indonesian resort in terms of tourism. It attracts tourists with its pristine landscapes, tropical forests, imposing volcanoes Kintamini, Gunung Batur and Gunung Agung, ancient temples and, of course, endless beaches. The main party center of Bali, a place where life is in full swing, regardless of whether the sun is frying or the moon is shining, is the "sweet couple" of Kuta and Seminyak.
The format of the rest is very similar: here and there round-the-clock parties, megawatts of light and sound, lively streets with bars and restaurants. However, Kuta is especially attractive to young people because of its democracy, simplicity and cheap alcohol. In addition to the fans of parties and the gap on the night parties in Kuta, many fans come to conquer the wave: the conditions for surfing here are just perfect. Accordingly, the neighborhood is full of rental locations, schools and private surfing instructors.
Indonesia has more than 13,600 islands, many of which are of volcanic origin, and Bali is one of them. Geographically, Bali belongs to the Malay Archipelago, two adjacent land areas are the island of Java, where people come to admire active volcanoes, and Lombok, where the original tropics are preserved. The southern part of Bali is washed by the gentle waves of the Indian Ocean, and on the north side it is surrounded by the Bali Sea - part of the Pacific Ocean. The entire central and northwestern part of the island is covered by mountains, where you can find the famous coffee plantations. The highest points are the volcanoes Agung and Batur. From the center to the south, mountainous terrain gradually turns into a plain, the most suitable for growing rice, fruits and vegetables. The beaches of the south coast are white or golden, in the north you can see the real volcanic sand of black color.
The Gunung Kawi Temple Complex, located 25 km from the Balinese city of Ubud, was discovered in 1920 by an unknown Dutch archaeologist. It is considered the largest megalithic monument in all of Southeast Asia, and scientists are still trying to unravel its secrets. Last week, researchers put forward the view that this complex is not only a cave temple, but also the location of the oldest pyramid. According to them, under the temple there can be secret passages up to 15 meters deep. Scientists suggest that now hidden structures could be built more than 10,000 years ago. The temple itself is located in the Pakrisan River Valley - to go down to it, you need to overcome about 300 steps. After archaeological excavations using georadar and a seismic tomograph, the team found signs that Gunung Padang is a structure of several layers built in different historical periods. The topmost layer, 3500 years old, consists of stone columns and walls. The second layer, which was previously considered natural rock, was formed 8,000 years ago from columnar rocks. The third layer, formed 9500-28000 years ago, extends to a depth of 15 meters and has large cavities and chambers carved by ancient people.
