Trek up the highest peak of Bali's sacred mountain and witness a glorious sunrise over a volcanic crater.
What you’re going to do
Set your alarm clock and in the very early hours of the morning depart from your hotel to the starting point at the base of Mount Batur. Our friendly guides will be there to welcome you, provide you with the necessary equipment, and take you through a thorough safety brieﬁng. Then turn on your ﬂashlights and set off in the cool, early morning darkness.
The ﬁrst section takes you uphill through volcanic ash, sand and small rocks. Continue ascending to the top of the crater where the terrain becomes windswept with fewer rocks and vegetation.
Relax at the summit while witnessing the sunrise and the stunning morning views of Mount Abang and Mount Agung. On clear days it is even possible to view Lombok's Mount Rinjani in the distance across the Lombok Strait.
Walk to another crater rim before descending along the same path you climbed in the dark, this time being able to enjoy the spectacular views of the surrounding landscape and Lake Batur. You can even see some of the lava ﬂows and their path of destruction from the most recent eruptions. Returning to your hotel.
Suggested clothing for climbing: good sports shoes, long trousers, coat or something to keep you warm.
If you are already in Bali, you may book up to 72 hours before the day of the experience but if you are not already in Bali, you must book at least 15 days in advance
