Welcome to Tengkudak


Nyoman Sutiani and her two brothers are based in the village of Tengkudak.

She owns rice fields that are managed by her brothers, and has opened a small shop outside of her house a couple months ago to be able to make ends meet. She is the youngest of three, and her middle brother is the Head of Subak for Tengkudak. Her and her family would love to host travelers that are interested in learning about the local Subak.

The family believes that hosting travelers both local and foreign could be a stepping-stone to promote Subak as the world heritage site that it is.

Welcome to the village of Tengkudak, surrounded by rice fields and situated at the slope of Mount Batukaru. Because of its geography it has a slightly colder temperature than surrounding villages. The village displays a harmonious relationship of Hinduism and Catholicism, and the farmers in this village belong the Subak Penatahan.
