From Kedewatan Ridge the view of the Ayung River valley is breathtaking: a contrast between carefully tended Balinese rice fields and the fast moving, wild river below, between open sky and steep slopes covered by tropical jungle. It is a magical and emotional experience, a feeling as if thousands of years of cultural and natural heritage were unfolding in a huge, panoramic spectacle. This view, one of the most spectacular in the island of Bali, perhaps in the world, is hypnotizing, continuously changing throughout the day, revealing new layers of light, space, color, texture.

In the morning absorb the spiritual energy from the mist that rises up from the sacred river deep down in the valley below.

The village of Sayan stretched along the top of a narrow ridge that ran up into the mountains. Every three days a crowded bus rattled down from the Chinese coffee plantations to den Pasar, choking and stalling as it climbed back again at night. The land I wanted lay at the end of the village, next to the graveyard, on the edge of a deep ravine. Far below ran the river; across the valley rice fields rose in terraces and disappeared in the coconut groves. Behind these ran the mountains of Tabanan, and far off to the south a triangle of sea shone between the hills. The land had once been terraced to grow rice, but now was covered with grass and shaded with coconuts. It descended in several steps to the edge of the cliff, where it dropped four hundred feet. From below came the faint roar of the river as it rushed among the rocks and stones.
