Kemenuh Butterfly Park (Jalan Raya Kemenuh, Sukawati, Gianyar). Just ten minutes from Ubud and 25 minutes from Sanur, near the Sukawati Art Market, lies the Kemenuh Butterfly Park, filled with native flowers, splashing fountains, tropical trees, rice field and of course, hundreds of butterflies. The park offers tours, which are both fun – looking for and watching butterflies and educational – learning about the life cycle of butterflies, how they fit into an eco-system and why they are often under threat from development and climate change. Local businessman Ida Bagus Witara set up Kemenuh as both a conservation park and to encourage people to learn more about these short-lived insects. Children will enjoy learning about, and even carefully holding butterflies or examining a chrysalis. The park offers a restaurant, gift shop and gallery and is open from 8:30 am to 6 pm daily. Entrance price is IDR 100,000 for adults or children. Contact the park on +62 8214 549 1272, email kemenuhbutterflypark@gmail.com or check out their website, www.kemenuhbutterflypark.com.
