Bukit Teletubbies (Teletubbies Hill) in Nusa Penida is best known for its lush green rolling hills and incredible viewpoints that overlook the entire Nusa Penida Island.
I have put together this complete guide to Bukit Teletubbies including how to get there, the best time to visit, and what to expect when you arrive.
WHERE IS BUKIT TELETUBBIES?
Bukit Teletubbies is located in the southern mountain ranges on Nusa Penida Island.
Click here to see the location on Google maps.
HOW TO GET HERE
The easiest way to get to this location is by scooter. From the main town of Toya Pakeh, it’s approximately a 45-minute drive.
There are a number of scooter rental shops dotted along the beachfront at Toya Pakeh harbor that will be able to sort you out with some wheels when you arrive on the island.

Alternatively, most accommodations will help you to organize a scooter rental for the time you plan to spend on Nusa Penida Island.
You can expect to pay around 70,000 IDR per day for a Nusa Penida scooter rental with a full tank of gas.
Be sure to wear a helmet and purchase travel insurance as an extra precaution for riding on the roads in Nusa Penida.
The reason being is that the roads are not very well maintained and there are potholes and loose gravel in many areas.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT BUKIT TELETUBBIES
As you near the top of the mountain range, follow the tar-sealed road and you will begin to see rolling fields of green and rounded peaks that give Bukit Teletubbies Hill its name.
The hill formations look strikingly similar to Chocolate Hills in Bohol, Philippines.
There is no entrance fee at this attraction and visitors are free to roam at their own pace.
On a clear day, you can see the neighboring island of Lombok and the almighty Mount Rinjani, the second-largest volcano in Indonesia.
In the valleys between Teletubbies Hill are terraced fields of food crops and random clusters of coconut palm trees.
I decided to fly my DJI Mavic Mini 3 Pro Drone Camera to capture it all from above.
The best way to explore Teletubbies Hill Nusa Penida is on foot. Take a short hike to get a different perspective of this incredible landscape from nearby peaks.
