North Tabanan on the southern slopes of Mount Batukaru is fast becoming "Eco Mountain". One of the newest eco lodges which opened Dec 2010 is Bali Eco Stay. While the resort is surrounded by jungle, the views over the rice paddies to the jungle are spectacular. The restaurant food is wholesome organic food from their own permaculture garden and the vlocanic mountain spring water is pure and delicious! This is a place to rest and recover or base yourself for an adventre trekking Batukaru or riding mountain bikes down to the ocean. All the staff come from the nearby Kanciana village. They are very friendly and welcome you to ceremonies where you will probably be the only westerner. You can get a feel for the real Bali here in the mountains.
