Balinese Harvest Festivals

Nyepi, which is one of the most important festivals in Bali, signifies the beginning of a new lunar year. The festival usually falls during the spring equinox (late March, early April). On this day, all people (including tourists) must remain silent, and no-one may work, travel or take part in any indulgences. This festival is a time of purification to make sure they have good crops. Kulkuls are alarm drums which are positioned in small towers in every Balinese village.

The night of the full moon festivities observed at the end of the September. The festival provides excitement for crowds of travellers and also for those who are taking part in the celebration.
