Sibetan

Sibetan is a village within the Bebandem District that is almost entirely made up of rural farmland for the cultivation of salak fruit. This tropical fruit is often called snake skin fruit due to its dark brown scaly skin that is carefully peeled off to reveal a large segment with a hard seed inside. This unique fruit is pleasant tasting with the crunchy consistency of a raw carrot and is used to make wine, syrup and candy. Sibetan is a popular area for trekking and is the home of the traditional Balinese musical instrument called Angklung.
