Jatiluwih rice terraces are one of the most renowned and well-preserved natural treasures in Bali. Alongside the Tegalalang terraces near Ubud, Jatiluwih offers the most impressive experience of rice fields on the island.
John Purna, the manager of this tourist attraction, emphasized that the electric buses were specially adapted to local conditions. These vehicles currently accommodate 14 people. Tourists can ride from the parking lot through the rice fields on quiet and eco-friendly transportation, enjoying the tranquility and fresh air.
Purna added that this initiative aims to support ecotourism and environmental conservation. The use of electric buses aligns with Bali's government program to reduce carbon emissions and transition to renewable energy sources, but it is currently a temporary solution. If the trials are successful, the Jatiluwih village authorities will consider operating the buses permanently.
The Jatiluwih rice terraces, located in the Tabanan Regency, are recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. They are situated on the slopes of Mount Batukaru and cover an area of about 303 hectares. The terraces feature artificial steps irrigated by the ancient "subak" system, exemplifying traditional Balinese agriculture. The landscape here impresses with its beauty and harmony with nature, making it one of the most popular destinations on the island.
Given the significant pollution in Bali caused by the abundance of private transportation, this will be a big step toward sustainable tourism and could serve as an example for other tourist destinations.
