What an amazing location. Incredible views and pure Balinese beauty in the largest temple of the Island. Paying (tourist) access grants you with a ride in motorbike to the temple from the parking, saving the long slide that takes you there. A local guide will give you a Tour and explain you with some basics that you should know about this spot.
Besakih temple is an absolute gem and deserve your full attention. Go there with a certified guide (included in the ticket) so you won’t be asked any money by a local-dishonest-so called-guide. It is really worth it. The set of temples is amazing, peaceful, it tells a lot about the culture and beliefs of the Balinese.
