WHERE IS BUKIT TELETUBBIES?
Bukit Teletubbies is located in the southern mountain ranges on Nusa Penida Island.
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 get a helmet as an extra precaution for riding on the roads in Nusa Penida as they are not very well maintained with potholes and loose gravel in many areas.

NUSA PENIDA TOUR
If you happen to be in Bali and planning to visit Nusa Penida Island, there is one tour that I can highly recommend which covers all the highlights on a full-day trip from Bali.
The Nusa Penida East Tour is the most top-rated tour with great reviews and hundreds of bookings.
This tour covers the top attractions on Nusa Penida such as Atuh Beach, Diamond Beach, Rumah Pohon Tree House, and more! With a hassle-free pick-up and drop-off from your hotel, return boat transfers from Bali, a hearty lunch, and an English-speaking guide.

WHAT TO EXPECT
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 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.

BEST TIME TO VISIT
The best time of day to visit is early morning for sunrise or late afternoon for sunset.
During the middle of the day is too hot and there isn’t much shade around to stay cool.
