Bunut Bolong

Bunut Bolong is a sacred tree on the roadside leading up to Buleleng in Medewi and is a unique tourist attraction in the area.

The name of the tree is attributed to its unique characteristic: ‘bunut’ is a local word that translates to trees that belong to the fig species while ‘bolong’ is the local word for hole. Visitors are often interested to see this unique tree, thanks to the giant hole that it has at the bottom.
