Can you guarantee that I see the sunrise?

Can I swim in Lake Batur?
Yes. The lake is quite refreshing. You can also fish if you want.
Do we really need to hire a guide for this trek?
Legally, you can do this hike on your own if you pay the necessary fees, but we do not advise hiking in this area without a guide. it is easy to get lost and the trekking association can get protective of people entering the park without a licensed guide. If you do not choose us, please book your trek with a local, experienced, licensed guide who knows the area.
Are children allowed on this hike?
Yes. It is not a difficult hike and is suitable for children, but please watch them at all times so they may stay on the trial and under proper adult supervision.
What happens if I get hurt?
Though this is a low-difficulty hike, sometimes accidents do happen. Our guides are trained in basic first aid as well as local rescue procedures. If an accident occurs, they will first assess the situation and determine the best course of action. If evacuation is necessary, they will notify the Batur Rescue Team and arrange for the injured person to be taken to a hospital. Next of kin will then be notified.
