My Spiritual and cultural experience in Ubud, Bali
Monday, June 04, 2018

experience in ubud

 

My spiritual and cultural experience in ubud, Bali. No matter what your religious/spiritual background is, cultural ideals, or where you come from, this is absolutely an experience I recommend! I can't help but smile thinking of the entire day. To Be honest, I went into this experience with simple expectations "see a temple, learn a cultural custom, have a chat with a local healer e.g. be a tourist" but this experience was much much more than this and one of the more memorable moments of my stay in Bali. This is an experience where you encounter the kindness of the Balinese people, balance and spirituality of the culture, and a connection to people and nature. Thank you, Agung for hosting! Our guide, Agung embodies what you'll find amazing about Bali -- the culture and kind, positive spirit of the local community. He will guide you through each step of the experience (including any nuances of ritual practice, clothing, etc to ensure you're being respectful of the temple and culture), he will explain the intentional aspects of each ritual and what it means to the Balinese locals plus homage to their ancestors, as well as historical understanding of the temple and surroundings. He reminds you to keep your heart and mind present to connect with the entire experience. He has a wonderful natural curiosity of people and the places they come from and made the conversations interesting throughout the entire day, while also learning and sharing his perspective. I shared this experience with two women from Australia (and I was coming from the States) which made this even more interesting to chat with them and get to know the group. It was cool to see us all coming together while from different places and parts within our own travels. I'm keeping my review on the Healer simplified because everyone's experience will be unique to their own 1-1 conversation with the Healer, but I will say I was pleasantly surprised and incredibly delighted by my conversation (even as a bit of a skeptic myself)! It's 100% something I'll remember as well and highly recommend doing this as part of the experience you take home with you. Overall, I can't say enough how positive this was for me . Logistics: Agung offers additional individual pick-up at your hotel or resort with a small additional cost of 250K (need to pay in cash, there is one ATM at the temple if you forget cash or run out and while tipping is not required, nor an expectation, I ended up tipping at the end of the day because it was such a positive experience). The driver that picked us up was incredibly nice and hangs out with the group for the entire day (driving you to each location) and offers drop-off at individual locations at the end (keep in mind this can be time-consuming depending on how large your group is, luckily our group was small which made the experience better). The way the day is designed is to...cek here !

Giant Manta Mating Trains in Nusa Penida (in April) - Travel Tips

Manta Mating Trains

Gianta manta rays are amongst the most majestic, enigmatic and unique creatures of the oceans. Historically little has been known about them and it was only a relatively recent discovery that there are two distinct species of manta; Reef Mantas (Manta alfredi) and Giant or Oceanic Mantas (Manta birostris). Reef mantas are smaller with pectoral fin spans of up to 5.5 meters whilst Oceanic Manta Rays can span 7.5 meters. Manta Rays have ‘spot patterns’ on their ventral sides (underside) which act much like fingerprints and make it possible to identify individuals – each manta’s spot pattern is unique.

Both harmless species of Manta are seen around Indonesia but the majority of sightings are reef mantas. Reef mantas are more often found at Manta Point Nusa Penida, mantas cleaning station. You might ever wonder what a manta cleaning station is. Cleaning stations are areas where mantas go to have parasites, dead tissue, and algae build-up removed by cleaner fish. Cleaning is a very important part of the manta ray’s daily routine, and sometimes they spend up to eight hours a day being cleaned by different fish including: scissortail sergeant majors, bicolor cleaner fish, moon wrasses, and butterflyfish. The large round rock formation at Manta Point, is what the manta rays use as a cleaning stations. This rock formation starts around 12 meters underwater and comes up to 3 meters from the surface. This formation is covered in hard corals, in which the reef fish live. It is these reef fish that clean the manta rays. The manta rays will enter this cleaning station and circle the rock slowly while the reef fish clean them. Reef mantas are plankton feeders and their unique ‘cephalic fins’ (the two fins that spiral down on the front of the mantas head) make them very efficient feeders. The fins can be moved independently of each other to direct and maximize the flow of plankton into the mouth. In areas where there is a particularly rich concentration of plankton the mantas are often seen barrel rolling (turning somersaults) – this enables them to stay in the same spot collecting large quantities of plankton whilst dispersing as little of it as possible.

April is the time of year where the water conditions are the calmest, and this month is the best time to see manta. The main attraction of the dive site in this month is manta ray mating trains with as many as 30 mantas on one dive are often spotted at this site. Manta mating trains happened when a female manta was at the front, followed by several male mantas. At the moment of breeding season, female manta usually swims in the preferred cleaning station. At the same time, male mantas are waiting for female manta at the cleaning station and followed the female manta, male mantas are trying hard to get the closest places from female manta for mating. Based on this reason, this manta mating is called manta mating trains because when these mantas are swimming more look like a train - they are truly enormous. It is no wonder that Manta Point is known as one of Bali’s best dive sites. So, this is once in a lifetime experience you should not to be missed! .
