Stock Photo of Stick battle of Mekotek with a victory for the opposing group of warriors who manage to force down their opponents sticks inevitably crushing many men! The Mekotek stick war in Desa Munggu village which is a unique Bali tradition sees rival Banjars in the village compete against each other with long wooden sticks made of Pulet wood (Kayu Pulet). The sticks are around 2.5-3 metres long and are peeled of any bark creating a smooth consistency to the wood. These are then pointed skywards and formed into a cone which many men create and use to force the opponents stick cone down to the ground.
