Bali's best diving, and the oldest Balinese village
Tulamben was an anonymous fishing village in the dry lands of Karangasem for a very long period. Nowadays, it's the busiest diving destination in Bali. Since the discovery of the USS Liberty as a diving destination back in the 1980's, Tulamben has been drawing bigger and bigger crowds, all wanting to take a glimpse at the sunken ship. Tulamben can get very crowded during high season and it's easy to see why. But the bay and surrounding villages have a lot more to offer than just the USS Liberty, and can provide days of awesome diving!
After Tulamben, we'll visit beautiful Tirtha Gangga (Water Garden), one of the oldest Traditional Balinese Villages located in the Karangasem Regency, east part of Bali. This village is much referred to by the cultural literature of Tenganan Pegringsingan, which is very famous on the island. The community has its own unique local life pattern, which is one example of Bali Aga Village cultures (Hindu Prehistoric), and is different form the other areas of Bali's countryside.
