Last weekend my family decided to go to Bali for mountain biking with my dad's mountain biking group.
I have to say this experience was crazy, I know that my dad's group go biking every weekend and they did crazy cycling but I never thought this time we went off road like that.
We stayed in Bedugul area which is the west Bali, around Bedugul you can find Beratan lake where there built one of the oldest temple, Ilu Danu Beratan temple.

a little moth (?) or maybe butterfly (?) on my brother's head


national park "eka karya" Bali

the corn monument, here we always make pit stop

believe it or not, this is one of the biking track

apparently a lot of people already warned us about the 'poisonous' plant around the national park. I forgot what's the name, the plant have big and wide leaves with white marks and if u accidently touch them it gives you a very prickly itch followed by burning if you touch or scratch them, even pouring water doesn't help, at all

first stage of uphill

steep, slippery, rocky uphill.
this hill goes FOREVER.

a shrine that the locals use to pray

a little sweetness on the way back to Corn monument

grilled fish that everyones fighting for
