After the Dutch took control of north Bali in the 1890s Munduk was established as a hill station and plantations of cocoa, coffee, vanilla and cloves were established.

The area grew as a popular retreat due to the cooler climate and even today you can still see a small number of Dutch buildings remaining in the area.

There are still plenty of plantations as well as the ever present rice fields and the area is now known as one of the most scenic trekking spots on Bali.
