Natural beauty of Tembeling Springs
The springs are situated not far from the sea, so it is not surprising that the atmosphere feels coastal. The diameter of the springs is about 5–6 metres, with their location in the middle of the forest adding to their natural diversity. Taking part in the cheap Nusa Penida Tour Package to these exotic springs will provide you with the opportunity to get close to nature, a rare thing in today’s world.
There are two pools at the springs. The large one is solely reserved for men while the smaller one, located one level below the large pool, is mostly used by women. The little pool also borders the open sea. If you are travelling with the 1-Day Nusa Penida Tour, please remember to observe all the rules. This area is a sanctuary and is protected by the government, and the rules must not be violated.
Things to do at Tembeling Springs
There are some animal species that are protected in the area, such as monkeys and the Bali starling, and for this reason, you may see these animals here. The peaceful atmosphere, greenery, trees and the entertaining animals cannot help but create a calming environment. Residents that live in the surrounding area use the springs for their daily needs, which is the reason a number of water pipes can be seen here.
Besides enjoying the atmosphere, you can also swim or bathe in the pools, and even drink the fresh water from the springs, a tonic for both mind and body. It is said that these springs were found by a pregnant woman who was searching for her cow. The pregnant woman chased the cow into the middle of the forest and eventually found these springs, and this story gave the springs their name. The name of this 1-Day Nusa Penida Tour attraction, Tembeling, is derived from the word ‘beling’, which in the Balinese language means pregnant woman.
