Article name: "Bali’s own “Camino”: Is this new 132km eco-pilgrimage a win for locals and travelers?"
A true homage to our Astungkara Trail, this article shares our vision and actions to create an alternative to mass tourism in Bali that really serves local communities, their culture and our ecosystems.
This is the antidote to mass tourism, one that offers the traveler insights into the priorities and challenges of local people.
We believe this is what Bali needs to restore its culture, which has already been degraded by years of uncontrolled tourism that has not served most communities in a positive way.
