Campuhan Ridge Walk In Ubud – A Complete Guide

Campuhan Ridge Walk is a free and easy trek along a beautiful block pathway in Ubud. It’s the perfect place to grab some fresh air, so here’s all the info.

How To Get To Campuhan Ridge Walk

Campuhan Ridge Walk is located right in the heart of Ubud town.

There are actually two entrances, although the easiest place to start is pin pointed on Google maps.

The location itself is sort of tricky to find but if you spot the ‘IBAH luxury villas and spa’ sign, you turn straight into there and you will find the carpark.

We always choose to rent scooters, which start at around 50,000 IDR per day, and explore ourselves.

However be sure to read up on our renting a scooter in Bali guide beforehand!

If you’re looking for somewhere to rent scooters from you can book a Bali Scooter or Motorbike Rental with Delivery.

Another option is to hire a Bali Private Car or Minibus Charter With Driver, which is pretty popular for day trips around Bali, and they start at around 500,000 IDR per day (8 hours).

For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

Best Time To Visit Campuhan Ridge Walk

Early morning or late afternoon/evening, when it is cooler, is the best time to visit for a really enjoyable walk.

There is no shade along this walk, so take plenty of water and sun protection.

Sunset is an especially good time due to it being cooler and the lighting is great for some stunning photos.

There can be a few bugs around in the early morning and late evening, so don’t forget the insect repellent!

There are a few cafes along the way if you get too hot and thirsty.

So grab yourself a fresh coconut and tick the one off your Bali bucket list.
