Restoring Sight to The Blind

One of the critical problems directly associated with poverty that is facing Indonesia is blindness due to development of cataracts. Around three million Indonesians are affected by this – not just a dimming of their vision, but actual blindness. This means that the cataracts have developed to such an extent that they are actually blocking the vision completely – not a common situation in the western world where cataracts are dealt with in the early stages of their progress.
 
Imagine how a person living in a remote village where people survive by subsistence farming lives day-to-day – if it is an older person, he or she would just sit, virtually waiting to die, unable to move about much, totally reliant on their family members for the simplest tasks. A younger person would have their life curtailed dramatically, unable to progress at school, having no hope of finding a job, unable to help their family in the fields, unlikely to marry and raise a family – a person without a future in this culture.
 
Cataract blindness is totally curable! A simple operation where the cataract lens is extracted and replaced by a new plastic lens takes just around 20 minutes. The day after the operation, the person can see through the operated eye, even if they have been blind for many years.
 
The John Fawcett Foundation (JFF) is an Australian-registered NGO based in Bali, whose mission is to identify and operate as many of Indonesian’s cataract blind as it can. Its experienced team of ophthalmologists, nurses, technicians and support personnel travel to villages around Bali screening village people who present with eye problems, providing glasses to those who need them and eye drops to those with infections, and identifying those who are blind with cataracts. With the team travels a mobile operating theater, and the cataract blind are operated then and there in their village in a safe, sterile ophthalmic theater.
 
All services provided by JFF are free for the poor, including cataract surgery. To reach communities off-shore from Bali and on more remote islands, JFF’s mobile eye clinic and team, in a unique partnership with the Indonesian Air Force, are transported by C130 Hercules plane. Air Force ophthalmologists work with the JFF team to operate the blind, sometimes as many as 300 in one single trip.
 
However, cataract operations don’t come cheap, and quality of service is of paramount importance to the Foundation. In 25 years, JFF has given 48,000 Indonesians the free gift of sight. With over three million cataract blind people, most of them in the lower sociology-economic group, there is still a long way to go and a huge challenge ahead.
JFF is planning to significantly increase its output of cataract surgeries by partnering with private ophthalmic outreach clinics across Indonesia. With sufficient funds, JFF could reach even more in need and increase its annual output from around 2,500 to over 10,000 operations. Your contribution is needed. This would make a difference to their lives!

Courtesy of Lake Tamblingan

Lake Buyan is closely related to Lake Tamblingan in terms of location and ecosystem, and therefore both lakes are generally referred to as Bali Twin Lake. An interesting fact is that Lake Buyan and Lake Tamblingan used to be one whole lake until a landslide separated them in around the year 1800. Now they are separated by almost 2 kilometers wide of narrow ridges.
Lake Tamblingan seems to exude a mystical appeal and charm, with some regarding it as having the most unspoiled natural scenery as compared to Lake Bratan or Lake Buyan. The lake is located in the heart of Bali’s farming area and the slopes are covered with coffee plantations, vegetable fields and rice paddies. Its official location is on the north slope of Mount Lesung, Munduk Village area, District of Banjar, Buleleng Regency, about 3 hours from Denpasar. You will have the best experience while driving to this place with the cool wind blowing on your face and the feeling of pure, clean air all around you. It is advisable to pull over for a few photographs or have a small picnic on the roadside.
The entire lake area is a protected land within the 4356-acre Batukaru Nature Reserve, which is a major reason that both Lake Buyan and Lake Tamblingan have become increasingly popular with mountain trekkers, adventure seekers, bird watchers and Eco-tourists. And since the lake is located at such great heights, you will find that it is mostly covered in fog to cast a beautiful spell on the tourists. The depth of the water and reflection of the surrounding trees makes you witness some of the best shades of blue, green and grey all at the same time. The scenic beauty is just like a palette of colors.
Though motorized boating is not available on this lake, you can rent row boats or bring along your kayaks for exploring the water. Fishing is also permitted. You can opt for a jungle tour, which involves crossing the sacred Tamblingan Lake by old-style hollow canoes. Near Lake Tamblingan, visitors can perform activities, like trekking in the tropical forest with a variety of distances, ranging from 2 to 8 hours of trip. The idea is to spend quality time in and around the lake, and absorb its breathtaking beauty.
There are a few sights worth visiting in the vicinity of the lake. Numerous temples can be found on the outskirts of Lake Tamblingan, and the most popular one is Gubug Temple. This water temple, that use the traditional ‘Subak’ irrigation system at the edge of the lake, is a must visit place if you are around the neighborhood. It retains much of the architectural design, as Ulun Danu Temple, but is less crowded, offering you good photo-taking opportunities.
If you plan to explore the real Bali a bit more, these four lakes offer you some interesting stories behind it. Alternatively, you can always nourish your soul in the stunning scenery, relax at the lakeside hot springs, stroll in the beautiful local villages, take a tour of the exotic plantations, or camp in the mountains and dense jungles. Very rightly said, that Bali is a true treasure trove of natural beauty.

Courtesy of Lake Buyan

Lake Buyan is one of Bali’s unexposed and untouched attractions. Located in Pancasari Village, in Sukasada District, Buleleng Regency, the lake is spanning approximately 4.5 square kilometres just below the northern rim of the Bedugul caldera. Situated in a plateau region characterised by generally very wet and cool climate, Lake Buyan is surrounded by lush vegetation, featuring fog and cool air, which allows one to appreciate the authenticity of nature’s wonders. Based on people’s testimony, the sight of this lake can have a soothing effect to temporarily take away the stress of daily life.

Getting to this lake is a bit tricky, involving a 3-hour drive from Denpasar and following the road winding up the hill, where you can see an increasing number of monkeys on the road sides, before you arrive at the junction on the top of the hill. Turn left at this junction and continue to follow the quiet asphalt road which will lead you to the lake.
 
A community pool, known as Telaga Aya, is connected to the lake via a narrow canal. Telaga Aya is located between the two twin lakes, which are separated by a rainforest-covered hill. At the top of the hill, Asah Gobleg village, is the primary vantage point with panoramic views of both lakes and the surrounding. Make sure to get the perfect flattering selfie with the lake in the background from the lookout in Asah Gobleg Village on the trek down to the lake.
 
Encircled by coffee and clove plantations, Lake Buyan has a camping site at its southern edge with the ground being flat there. However, the most common activities are boating or fishing. Hiking or trekking is doable, but best done with local guides, granting scenic views of the landscape. For those who are into mediation and yoga, Lake Buyan offers the peaceful, serene aura, ideal for relaxation techniques. Nature lovers and Eco-tourists should find the entire area as a whole an ideal getaway. With limited tourist activities and the absence of human intervention, Lake Buyan still maintains its natural, intact ecosystem by protecting its fragile environment and promoting Eco-tourism.

Courtesy of Lake Batur

Lake Batur is Bali’s largest and widest lake with an area of approximately 18 square kilometres. The large crescent shaped lake sits on the old crater of Mount Batur and is surrounded by the high walls of the crater rim, with an active volcano of Mount Batur adjacent to it. Located in the mountainous area of Bangli Regency on the south-eastern side of Batur caldera, the lake lies at the feet of two majestic surrounding mountains, Mount Batur and Mount Abang. The crater is situated approximately 500 meters above sea level, and a couple of hot springs can be seen surrounding the lake with one in the middle of the lake. The water is much cooler than the other lakes in Bali. Try to dip your fingers while boating in this lake to feel how amazingly cold the water actually is. 

On the journey to the lake via Bangli or Tampaksiring road, the ashy residues and active hot springs indicate it is the remains of a volcano. As you get closer and continue over the last ridge, the massive outlining of the crater becomes visible, making you smile and awe at the same time. You can continue along the road from Penelokan, it continues right around the rim towards Kintamani to circle around the crater. The majestic and spectacular view of Lake Batur can also be viewed from Kintamani.
 
The only boat access to the lake is through the Trunyan village, home to the Bali Aga people. These local indigenous inhabitants are true descendants of native Balinese and have been isolated from the other inhabitants on other parts of the island. They communicate in the ancient language of Balinese and to date still practice traditional Balinese culture and religion. It is believed that when Bali Aga tribe people die, they are neither cremated nor buried, but laid under a sacred tree, the Taru Menyan, inside their open air cemetery. They members of the tribe believe that roots and the branches of this sacred tree helps to mask and remove the odour of the rotting, decomposing bodies.

Courtesy of Lake Bratan

Let’s begin the exploration in the central part of Bali to visit Lake Bratan. Situated in a crater of an inactive volcano, Mount Catur, this second largest lake in Bali is surrounded by the majestic mountain of Mount Bratan. It is recommended to hire a motorcycle to get there, but be warned that there will be many narrow mountain roads that you will have to navigate along the way. Alternatively, if you want to use public transportation, which can be unreliable at times, you can choose either from Singaraja’s bus station or from Denpasar’s Ubung station via minibus. It takes around 2-hour drive from Denpasar to arrive in Candi Kuning Village, Baturiti district, Tabanan, where the lake lies.
 
Located in Bali’s central highlands, this lake is a favourite tourist attraction. Its high altitude allows visitors to enjoy a respite from the hot and humid weather. The surrounding area is a natural spectacle offering splendid views of mountains and greenery. The lake is surprisingly shallow with a maximum depth of only 22 metres. Irises of a number of colours: yellow, fuchsia and magenta, dot the edge of the lake. The misty peak of dormant Mount Catur looms ahead of you.
 
Across the lake, there are three 25-metre-deep caves excavated by Indonesian slaves for the Japanese during World War II. There are also a few shrines worth exploring in the vicinity of Lake Bratan. Another popular sight is Bukit Mungsu Market, which located in Candi Kuning. Visitors can buy a variety of fresh spices, including nutmeg and turmeric, fruits and vegetables. Due to the cool weather there, you can also pick strawberries on the fields, a unique find considering Bali’s tropical climate.
 
There are so many activities you can do around the area. The surrounding mountains are popular destinations for hiking and trekking, offering routes of various levels of difficulty. Water sports lovers will rejoice with the abundance of water activities available. Boat rides on pedal boats, speed boats or traditional boats known as Jukung are all available. Other types of water sports that you can enjoy include water-skiing, parasailing, jet skiing and paddle sports. Swimming is permitted, of course, only if you can stand the cold waters.
 
Lake Bratan is considered to be the most holy lake in Bali, as it is a home to one of Bali’s most famous temples, the Ulun Danu Temple, which dates back to stories told in Balinese mythology. This beautiful 17th century temple of Ulun Danu, which appears to float on the water, is dedicated to worship Dewi Danu or the Lake Goddess. Offerings are made at the temple on special festive occasions, as it is believed will bring economic prosperity to the area.
 
The lake is a very important source of irrigation for many farms and rice paddies in the Bedugul region. Because of its surrounding temperatures and irrigation system, the area around Lake Bratan provides a high fertility rate, and for that reason Lake Bratan is also known as the Lake of Holy Mountain.

The culture and philosophy of Indonesian tradition



The culture of Indonesia has been molded after multiple foreign influences and with long interaction from original indigenous societies. Indonesia is geographically centrally located following antique trade pathways between the East, South-East Asia and the West, which has resulted in many cultural traditions and with strong influence from a plethora of different eastern philosophies, such as: including Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Islam and Christianity, with a stronghold in the ancient capital cities. The resulting mix are complex arts and crafts artifacts which are nowadays preserved by activities, workshops and tour destination organized by Bali Cultural Center as a mixture of different painting technique classes taught by indigenous people to tourists.
 
Examples of this cultural synthesis could be experienced in Bali Cultural Center handicrafts workshops, such as painting on unusual kind of materials, as egg, mask or batik painting, by homemade tools,which depicts natural themes, or stories about ancient kingdoms. Moreover, traditional handicraft painting, music and dance are fused in an exquisite workshop program, with natural materials and subtle tools made of wood and textile. Painting can be done with many types of dye and wax on cotton, silk and other natural fabrics.

Therefore, if you would like to know better or learn ancient, subtle techniques of Bali classic handicrafts and various paintings, in the peaceful and serene atmosphere,all you need to do is to choose and sign up for any of the Balinese Cultures workshops. Every guest will involve him or herself in a very unique and impressive experience by learning the ancient painting techniques and the diverse activities which is directed by friendly staff. There following workshops available are Boomerang Painting, Egg Painting, Mask Painting and Batik Painting.

If you go to the workshop for boomerang painting situated in the adjacent room to the entrance, you will be able to learn how to decorate the ancient tool of boomerang going back to 40,000 years ago. Workshop participants paint motifs and design separate painting techniques refining them till they reach the finished product. The most common themes are usually the nature: flower, bird, landscape or geometrical patterns. Egg painting is the new trend of where themes and patterns are painted by the ink, while eggs painted are actually empty.
 
Batik preserves modern process for making designs on textiles, by using uses wax for blank areas in the dyed fabric with complex multicolored designs. Here are some testimonials from batik workshop participants:“The Batik painting workshops that I was taught in Bali Cultural Center are fun, friendly and amazing. Before I came to this place I didn't know anything about Batik, and it opened a whole new wonderful world of modern Batik for me. At BCC they taught us a lot about traditional batik, and his own spin on it to make modern Batik, which is a combination of waxing, dying, and inking, making it a very a unique process. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to learn this technique from such batik masters.I really hope to try other handicraft workshops in the future and I would recommend it to all my friends and family.”

I Think I'll Try Defying Gravity --- Courtesy of Canggu Club

Bali now offers a brand new adrenaline charged concept in fun and fitness with Bounce Trampoline Center, the first of its kind in Indonesia!

Trampolining is the new high octane exercise phenomenon taking the world by storm with centres springing up across Australia, the UK, United States and Europe. Bounce Bali, located at the New Canggu Club, is the first of its kind in Indonesia and offers the opportunity to engage in gravity defying, airborne acrobatic antics in a completely safe and controlled environment.

As well as being a barrel of fun, the health benefits of this relatively new craze have been well documented with experts suggesting bouncers can burn up to 600 calories in a one hour session! Trampolining provides opportunities for skill development, core training and a fat burning cardio workout without even knowing it! It is proven to be beneficial for balance and coordination, core strength and general fitness with the added bonus of low impact exercise; the trampoline reducing eighty percent of force on contact, resulting in less stress on bones and joints. A study by NASA discovered that just ten minutes on a trampoline provided a more effective cardio workout than over thirty minutes of running. Now THAT'S my kind of workout!

The main free style arena at Bounce Bali comprises twenty five interconnected, framed and spring loaded trampolines, completely covered with two inch foam pads to ensure there are no hard surfaces and for added safety. Padding lines the walls for those who wish to 'walk on air' and numbers are limited to one person at a time per individual trampoline in order to promote safe jumping and minimize any risk of injury.

Another smaller arena of twelve mini tramps provides an opportunity for games of six a side dodge ball along with two more basketball hoops for slam dunk competitions. As if that isn't enough to get the adrenaline going, angled ramps have been installed in order to practice back flips, front flips and any kind of aerial maneuver imaginable!

The final third of the activity center contains three trampoline paths leading to a massive pit containing no less than 5000 cubic meters of foam. Bouncers are encouraged to use the paths to gain momentum before launching themselves into the pit for a soft and safe landing. The elite performance tramps in the furthest corner of the Bounce arena will delight gymnastics enthusiasts and those with more advanced acrobatic skills as these trampolines generate more air time, enabling experienced jumpers to complete aerial flips and gravity defying trick sequences adjacent to a foam wall built especially for bouncing onto and practicing your vertical walking skills. In this high octane, aerial arena the wall becomes the floor and the rules of gravity need not apply!

Situated within a brand new, fully air conditioned complex, Bounce Bali is open from 9am – 10pm Sunday to Thursday and 9am – Midnight on Friday and Saturday. Whether you are 6 or 65, age is not an issue as Bounce welcomes participants of any vintage to test their skills. Whilst the trampolines are open to free styling fun, classes are available if you are only beginning to Bounce and there is also an advanced class for those 'Tigers' with more gymnastic experience!

Not interested in taking to the tramps yourself? Observers can watch all of the excitement in cool comfort from the elevated viewing area and enjoy a range of tasty snacks and icy beverages from Strike Bar's extensive menu while perusing the play area below. Take advantage of Happy Hour prices from 5pm daily and make an afternoon of it with a few free games of pool on the billiard tables, or get a group together, grab a lane and take down some pins at Strike Ten Pin Bowling.
 
Whether you are aiming for exercise or simply an hour to flip out with some aerial antics, Bounce Bali promises a great experience for any age and ability and is guaranteed to satisfy hard core adrenalin junkies and expend the energy of action hungry adolescents. For the purposes of active entertainment or an intense fitness workout, Bounce Bali is Indonesia's number one for the new craze in trampolining fun.

Entering the realm of the island water activities

There is no shortage of experiences to seek out while traveling in Bali, and the island certainly isn’t lacking of a comprehensive range of marine activities. Whether it is just simply a relaxing swim on the beach or even dancing with the shark in the ocean wild, sometimes it is tough to figure out which experience is right for you. The key is to push out of your comfort zone and discover a true meaning of traveling by having once in a lifetime experience. Perhaps you could find these appealing water activities to your inner sense of adventure.

Surfing still remains as the prime water activity in Bali because of the waves in this island are challenging, which make them a perfect fit between fun and precarious that will pump up your adrenaline to its maximum limit. Internationally known for its perfect waves, surfing in Bali offers the chance to ride and conquer the high waves while at the same time enjoying the perfect sun. For the first timer, be prepared to get your body sores.

The stand-up paddle is another way to enjoy the waves. Paddle boards are specially designed to support your weight and their large size makes it easy for you to cruise through the waves safely and at the speed that you desire. Here, you get to control your movement and work out a little. Larger than the regular surf board, the paddles allow you to ride over the equally larger swells. This is definitely something that you could get addicted to. Seeming a little complicated at the beginning, but it only needs to get used to and you will have another cool way to sightsee or enjoy the beautiful ocean of Bali.

How about doing yoga on the stand-up paddle board? Your mat is a stand up paddle board while the world is your studio. The combination of sun, wind and water adds a unique sensation of balancing your body and adapting to the motion of the board beneath you. Stand-up Paddle Yoga will teach you to breathe properly, sync your mind and at the same time build your stability.

Kitesurfing is not very popular in Bali, but this new sort of extreme sport is becoming quite popular in the western countries these days. It is actually like regular surfing, only that a kite is added to the equation, which allows you to fly over those complicated waves that you cannot easily ride over. Kite flying by itself is already exciting enough, but when you combine it with another sport, it is going to be explosive. This water sport combines wake boarding with surfing, so in essence you get two water activities for one price. That's nice, don't you think?

If you enjoy something a bit faster to trigger a little bit of adrenaline, you might want to try fly boarding. This water activity allows you to actually fly across Bali coastline. All you have to do is strap on the kit and off you go. The instructors will of course have to take you through how the controls work, but after that, you will be on your own and free to enjoy the ride. The devices attached to your body can move you in any direction you want and lift you up in a stationary position, all aimed at ensuring your maximum satisfaction.

Now, this next water activity feels like taking you back in time when you wish you could ride your bicycle above the skies. Jetovator is the new thing to be ridden above Bali beaches. This water sport accessory extends the ability of a normal jet ski and redirects the water thrust from the jet unit to the Jetovator body. It’s like defying gravity by balancing on a water bike powered by jet skis.  You can take the Jetovator through the air in comfort for long distances. Or, for skilled riders, you can go under water for a few seconds before creating some awesome tricks in the air. Don’t worry if it’s your first time because the machine is incredibly easy to ride. Simply grab your controls, find your balance, and that’s it. You will have an excellent view of Bali’s clear skies, riding your water propelled bike.

Next up, the real experience that you doubtlessly don’t want to miss. The Seabreacher will take you to dive a few feet under water before breach the water surface and launch the entire vessel 6 meters in the air. Using a supercharged engine that will put you in high speed, this aggressive shark style hydrodynamics boat will certainly get your heart pumping. For those who wants to soar in the air while gliding over Bali’s blue waters, take your time to experience the most exhilarating water activity adventure and live in a unique moment full of adrenaline.

One of the oldest water activities that has been enjoyed by generations of human is fishing. No matter what age you are, this relaxing sport never seems to get old. It relaxes the brain and at the same time excites you when a fish is finally caught. The best thing about fishing is that you can make it as much fun as you want it to be. It could be a way for the entire family to enjoy together or the time when you need to be with yourself. While fishing gives your body some fresh air, the fish itself will supply the Vitamin D.

If you love to watch the marine life in its natural habitat, you should try snorkelling. This water sport allows you to see a glimpse of underwater life, without the need to carry a heavy oxygen tank on your back or have any special training, definitely fit for everyone. A professional guide to ensure your safety is available at most of the touristy areas, but for sure you can carry your own gear and off you go to see the beautiful coral reefs! Most of these sites in Bali can easily be safely accessed for this activity.

And if you want to explore deeper into the Indian Ocean, to get the wonderful experience of swimming with the fish and other sea creatures, then diving is what you need. Armed with safety gadgets and accompanied by experienced divers, you will get to look at the deep blue sea in a whole new light. Getting to see the fish from the biggest to the smallest in their natural habitat is unlike any other experience. The guides will not only watch over you, but will also hand you fish feed to attract the fish. Get to see the different types of fish that you have read about.

Speaking about swimming with fish, how do you feel about swim with the shark? Of course, some of you will think twice to be around sharks. However, being human, many people cannot help to be curious as to what it would feel to be close to this amazing, yet scary beast. This is what this activity will do for you, the possibility to be nose to nose with these deadly giants, yet be safe at the same time. The adrenaline thrill is amazing and it is also a once in a lifetime experience. This is completely safe though, as the instructions will be given before you go off swimming. If you say you are an adrenaline junkie, this is definitely something to get your fix.

With so many water sport activities to choose from, there are more than one way to enjoy the water activity in Bali. Even when you cannot swim, there are definitely heap of things to do in Bali. All you have to do is choose and let the fun begin.
