MAKARE-KARE

Category: Traditional Sports

Price: Rp150.000

How does it feel if you fight, until you’re covered in blood? Could it be that you have never thought of it, hopefully something that is not desirable will never happen. However, there is an extreme tradition called Kare-kare in Tenganan Village, Pagringsingan, Karangasem. This tradition uses thorny pandanus leaves as weapons, and woven bamboo as a shield and only uses kamen which is a traditional Balinese dress (open upper body).

Shows the story of a knight’s dexterity. This tradition is played by local youths, who usually bleed because of thorny pandanus scratches. Horrible? Yes, but there are experiences that cannot be explained after all. Only dimensionless memory images can tell of eye catches, emotions, and sensations. Memories that become experiences as stories of a warrior to his successors.

Even though afterwards there was a potent medicine from the village heritage to heal the wound, it was still too much for tourists to try the sensation of blood. However, does it limit exploring experience? Of course not. We offer tours of cultural experiences, especially kare-kare that is okay for the tourists which doesn’t use prickly pandanus. Enjoy the experience, wrapped in cultural nuances, #becauseculturesmatter
