makepung Bali

Makepung is the buffalo race  attraction that comes from Jembrana District, Bali. The word Makepung is derived from the word  Makepung-kepungan (Balinese) means romp,inspired from the activities of rice field soil processing stages: crushing the soil the  into mud by using lampit (a type of mat). Lampit is pulled by two buffaloes and the buffalo then wore a necklace called gerondongan so that when the buffalos are running  while using the lampit it will make interesting sound like the sound of music.
