Trunyan, The Bali Aga village is a unique and isolated original Balinesse village
Untouched by modern influences, Trunyan is particularly known for its kuburan or cemetery, about 500 meters outside the village and the method of dispatching the dead. Not believing in cremation the tradition is of weathering burial. A white cloth covers the body and lengthy rituals proceed. A bamboo cage surrounds the body, which is then left to the elements. There are also a couple of traditional Bali Aga-style dwellings, and a large banyan tree, which is said to be more than 1, 100 years old.
Unlike the Balinese people, the people of Trunyan do not cremate or bury their dead, but just lay them out in bamboo cages to decompose, although strangely there is no stench. A macabre collection of skulls and bones lies on the stone platform and the surrounding areas

This was a wonderful tour! Mully is a treasure! His knowledge of Bali is as extensive as is his experience of travels throughout the world. A wonderful conversationalist, he makes you very comfortable in his home in Indonesia. My wife and I enjoyed all the things he helped us experience. Silver, Batik, coffee, tea, terraced rice paddies, temples, lunch in the high volcanic areas overlooking a beautiful lake (blessedly cool at that altitude), and yes, the above ground burial practices. All this in a day!
