Mentioned on my previous post that we stopped at Goa Gajah on our way back to Ubud’s hotel after a long ride. This UNESCO World Heritage is one of the most visited location in Bali after Tanah Lot. Perhaps, that’s the reason why there are many blood sucker guides awaiting to suck you dry.

OK, I exaggerated. Please do ask for price before you allow the guide following you around. I did a mistake for not asking prior to the tour. My guide asked for USD10 at the end of the tour which I refused to pay. Eventually, unwillingly I paid Rp 50k but deep inside, Rp30 is max I’m willing to pay. Well…. this place does has its historical values.

Images guide bring you to a comprehensive tour around Goa Gajah begins here.

This place was used for meditation. Damn humid and hot in here

Goa Gajah’s entrance from inside. There are 4 areas for guards

Even 3 Yuki are not enough to circle this tree

There are many gigantic trees around, check out that crazy con-man (guide)

Goa Gajah

Entrance fees per person is Rp 30k (not sure if this is official or I’ve been sucked again). Understand from the guide, this place open 24-7 but I suggest you go before 6pm. At night, people comes for meditation etc.

      This place was built in the 9th century. The bathing place on the site was not dig up until the 1950s.
