Bali is part of the ring of fire. This is a horseshoe shaped area that stretches from New Zealand all the way to South America. It covers 400,000 KM (248,548 miles). Within this area lies 75% of the world’s volcanoes, and this is how it gets its name. Many of these volcanoes are now dormant but plenty of them are still very much alive with the most active area being Indonesia. The most active volcanoes are to be found on Java but visitors to Bali can also get up close to these fiery giants.

Bali, Indonesia, ‘Island of Gods’ is renowned for its spectacular and diverse natural scenery encompassing volcanic peaks, steeply terraced rice fields, vast sweeping tropical beaches, dense forests and lush gardens. It’s equally famed for its unique Hindu culture and plethora of exquisite visual and performing arts. Tucked in Bali’s remote northeast corner is Amed, a mountainous coastal region of tiny fishing villages set in crescent bays that are separated by rocky headlands and backed by pretty mountains whose ridge lines dip their toes into the gentle Bali Sea. Amed’s little-visited mountains are inhabited by local farmers and fisherman. Hidden in the hillsides are their thatch and stone houses, terraced fields, Hindu temples and pagodas, and secret watering holes. From the ridge lines, spectacular views of Bali’s north coast await visitors
