YOUR 5-STAR GUIDES

You’ll want experienced, licensed guides for this trip. Let us do all the work – you just enjoy the hike and the sunrise view. We provide the gear, cook your meals over the volcanic steam and pack everything for you. Hike the Caldera, get a dip in the hot springs and taste Kopi Luwak on your way back.

Wake Up to an Amazing Bali Sunrise

The sunrise atop Mount Batur is spectacular and may only be matched by the equally spectacular sunset. Get both with this package. You’ll enjoy a moderate hike to the summit where our guides will set up your tent and prepare your dinner as you enjoy the setting sun over the western sky. Wake up early the next morning for the sunrise over the the eastern sky and ocean as your guides prepare a hot breakfast cooked over steam from the volcano.

You’ll get the full treatment and won’t have to do anything, but enjoy your trek and the views. That’s the advantage of trekking with experienced, licensed guides who know the best campsites on the volcano.

Both the hike up and down will be scenic as you trek across the crater rim of Batur and back down to Toya Bungkah village to soothe your body and soul in the natural hot springs. On your way back, we’ll make a stop at a coffee plantation where you can learn about Balinese coffee and taste Kopi Luwak, the rarest coffee in the world.

How long will it take to climb to the top of the volcano?

It takes 1.5 to 2 hours to trek up the mountain, depending on the fitness level of the group and the pace, which is set by you. The entire time up and down, including camping is about 18 hours.

Is Mount Batur and Active volcano?

Yes. The last eruption was in 2000 and lava continues to flow. Scientists are pretty good at predicting when eruptions occur so there is very little danger of a volcanic eruption while you are trekking Batur. For more information, please contact us here.

Will we see lava flows?

Yes. You can see lava flows from Kintamani as well as other parts of the hike. Our guides are experienced trekkers of Mount Batur and will take you to views of lava and other interesting scenery.

Do we really need to hire a guide for this trek?

Yes. The locals can be very protective of the mountain and usually insist that you take a guide, even though it is perfectly legal to hike up the mountain without one, provided you pay your fees. You will likely run into trouble with the local association, however, so we highly advise using a guide for this trek.

If you do not choose to use Bali Trekking Exploration, we encourage you to use another guide service that is experienced, licensed and knows the volcano.

Can you guarantee that I see the sunrise?

Unfortunately, because we can never predict weather conditions, it is impossible to say how well you will be able to see the sunset and sunrise. Fortunately, this trek never disappoints. Guests overwhelming have rated this package as one of their favorites, even when there has been substantial cloud cover. The scenery and views continue to remain spectacular during all weather conditions.

What happens if I get hurt?

Mount Batur has an excellent mountain rescue team and guide association. Additionally, our guides are trained in basic first aid as well as rescue procedures. If a guest is injured, the guide will immediately assess the situation and determine if evacuation is necessary. If so, the rescue team will immediate ascend to the point of the injured guest and take them down the mountain and to the nearest hospital where next of kin will be notified.

Will there be a lot of other trekkers?

It’s possible there will be other trekkers on this volcano. Mount Batur is popular with locals and western travelers alike; however, our guides are experienced climbers and know where to avoid the most crowds and yet still provide you with the best scenery.

What if I’m afraid of heights?

Batur is very safe to climb, but if you have a serious fear of high places, we recommend you consider your options before climbing. Mild fear of heights is usually not a problem and our guides have helped plenty of people in similar situations as they ascended the mountain.
