I was born and raised in our beautiful village called Wanagiri. Wana means forest and giri means mountains - and that's what you will find here!
My family used to be farmers until we were displaced from our land. With the help and encouragement from several kind travelers we started hosting backpackers who wanted to explore the rural parts of Bali. We started to run a restaurant, then a guesthouse and a few months ago we got the amazing opportunity to rent our the beautiful villas of a once luxurious hotel.
Wanagiri is on the edge of an ancient volcanic crater overlooking two lakes. There are hidden temples and secluded waterfalls in the surrounding jungles and it seems every time we go for a hike we explore something new. But sadly the people are illegally cutting trees and carry them out of the forest to make a few dollars. We want to show them that the forest is much more valuable as a whole. Our goal is to protect the forests with sustainable tourists so that many more people can explore the beauty of the mountains.
We made hiking maps, experimented with menus for our guests and gave English classes to the kids in the village. We are figuring out ways to recycle and dispose the plastic rubbish, because we believe the plastic problem can only be solved if we start on the top and try to keep the rivers clean.
As our guest you are invited to be part of our family. I live with my wife, Mama Jero, my daughter Koming and our granddaughter Yuna, in the guest house.
