Kemenuh Butterfly Park lets you freely roam through flowering garden enclosures and admire nature’s artistry through colourful Lepidopteran species. The park opened at the turn of 2016, becoming Bali’s second butterfly park after the Bali Butterfly Park in Tabanan.

The butterfly park is approximately a 30-minute drive southwest of central Ubud and can be a great addition to tour itineraries to the Sukawati area. Other highlights within the area are the Sukawati and Guwang art markets, the Tegenungan Waterfall, and the Celuk and Mas silver and goldsmith villages – all of which are within a 1-km radius.

Roaming through Kemenuh Butterfly Park

Kemenuh Butterfly Park has paved pathways that meander through expansive flowering garden enclosures – all covered by netted canopies. Over 500 butterfly specimens flutter with ease, siphoning nectar from one tropical flower bud to another.

Among the park’s most prominent species are Indonesia's vivid Papilio peranthus, the bright orange Common Cruiser and the giant Atticus Atlas moth. Mini nurseries also show pearlescent cocoons from the wide variety of butterfly species. At the park’s lobby, you can learn about butterflies and their relatively short life stages through large diagrams that hang on the walls.
