Trekking famous volcanoes and Diving in Indonesia

 In Travels

Indonesia is well known for its incredible reefs, wild life, culture, food and for numerous treks on volcanoes. Being the country with the most underwater and above water volcanoes we thought it would be a great idea to mix in diving and trekking all at once for a memorable holiday. Join our special trip combining Diving and Trekking in Bali.

We have concocted a special trip on March 23rd to April 4th, 2020 for adventurous and people who likes to challenge themselves. We will held our safari during  the most famous holiday in Bali, Nyepi.

Which volcanoes will we trek?

Ijen Volcano, East Java

Which area will we dive?

What is Nyepi?

Nyepi, in our own word, is a big celebration for all our deamons. Starting with the parade of the ogoh-ogoh “light statues of deamon” and a religious ceremony, we will head back to our hotels/home in silence. The following day, we will respect the most peaceful silent day you have ever lived. No joke! You will notice that the airport will be shut down, the roads will be empty and even the internet service will be shut. No activities can be held on that day, not even cooking. Meditation is key on that day. Best time to reflect on our previous deamons from which we will be hiding for them to not find us. We will use no electricity on that day, and so will everybody else on Bali. Interesting start of the Balinese “New Year”.
