Kindle Your Adrenaline at Mengesta Village

Kindle Your Adrenaline at Mengesta VillageMENGESTA village is not only beautiful to look at because of its cool nature, but also famous for challenging adventure by using all-terrain vehicle (ATV). The adventurers from different parts of the world are used to conquer the winding and steep route. Even, once spending holidays on the island, they try more than once because it is really absorbing. One of the operators offering this kind of adventure at this location is Bali By Guard. It is located at Kedampal hamlet, Mengesta village, Penebel subdistrict, Tabanan, or about 45 km northwest of Denpasar. By riding the ATV tourists are invited to explore the countryside, see terraced rice fields as well as local cultural activities.

Riding the ATV here requires a technique and intelligence to complete each route. At least, there are four routes where each of which has its own uniqueness. The route passes through the village in the midst of the activities of local residents, muddy subak area with terraced rice fields, moor and river with swift streams. It is really spurring the adrenaline. Activities of rural people become the companion on the way because almost all the people are friendly and nice. They include the local farmers cultivating the farmland. The distance to be covered is more than 5 km and may take about 1.5 hours to 2 hours with three stopovers.

After halfway, all the participants are invited to relax amidst the subak area with verdant rice fields. Chatting in a small hut while drinking coffee, tea or mineral water with refreshment can elevate a very beautiful experience. Or you can sit together with farmers in the rice field while talking about their farmland. During the planting or harvest season, ritual activities can spice up your adventure in the countryside. Balinese girls passing in traditional attire with the background of Mount Batukaru become a nice spectacle. In school holiday season, local children are bathing in the pristine river with crystal clear water exuberantly. Hunting dragonfly or dragonfly nymph and eel are some activities they like best.  

The Operational Manager, I Wayan Puja Arsana, said that other than offering exotic panorama, the Bali By Guard also provided a variety of facilities and services starting from welcome drink, boat shoes, safety helmet, lunch and most importantly an insurance. “Every traveler taking the adventure will get the facilities. Besides, we also prepare tour guides and post guards,” he said. Currently, the Bali By Guard has 29 units of ATV and they are relatively new. Of the total units, 14 units are with automatic transmission, while 15 others with manual transmission. It is provided to give an option for the adventurers. Within a day, it offers three trips namely at 09:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. “This adventure is best favored by tourists from Australia and they make 80 percent of total guests. Meanwhile, the remaining market is composed of French, Indian, Arabian and Asian travelers,” he said. (BTN/015)
