A life in harmony with God and nature: What for many is an esoteric ideal is the daily reality in the Indonesian village of Penglipuran – and with godliness comes cleanliness!
The village’s inhabitants, some 1,000 people, abide by an ancient philosophy and its traditions: They protect the surrounding rainforest, cars are not allowed in the village, and littering is also forbidden.
Over the past years, sustainable tourism has grown in Penglipuran, strengthening the local economy.
Do you like to clean, or is it simply a chore for you? 😉
