Itinerary

Kite-making and kite-flying is a tradition that the Balinese people pride themselves over. For the locals, kites are a source of fun and leisure, but also a source of competition. The Balinese people take their kites extremely seriously as there are pre-requisites to making a kite. Since the kites will be flown over the sacred temples of Bali, the kites go through a purification ceremony before being flown for the first time. If you're in Bali in July, you can experience thousands of kites in the air, and with this lesson, yours will be one of them too!

There are three traditional types of kites that the Balinese people usually make, however, it is not restricted to these. The locals hold a kite-flying competition every year in the month of July where traditional kites are flown by the people from the villages of Denpasar. Initially, this festival was celebrated to send a message to the Hindu Gods to have a good harvest.

Come, be a part of an ancient tradition that will truly make you feel like one among the Balinese people with the kite you made with your own hands. Once you fly back home, the kite can be an addition to your wall as a memory.
