You’ll begin your ascent while it’s still dark at Toya Bungkah village under a blanket of a million stars. Our guide will provide you with working flashlights for your safety. You’ll reach the summit in plenty of time to capture the sunrise over the beautiful lava valley. Here, our guide will help you get the best photo opportunities and provide you with water, coffee, tea and a meal cooked over hot steam from the volcano. You’ll then wind your way around the crater and back to the village where you’ll board the bus to the river.

Before you leave, the guide will give you informed options on two different rivers, the Telega Waja and the Ayung. You’ll get to choose which river suits your preference. After a short ride, you’ll arrive to the river where you’ll meet your river guides and undergo additional safety checks and basic rafting instructions before you climb into your raft and embark on the second part of your adventure.

You’ll spend two hours enjoying class II and class III rapids on the Ayung and Class III and IV if you choose the Telaga Waja–as well as more of the Bali jungle and scenery. In addition to the wildlife and nature, you’ll also see majestic waterfalls and ancient stone carvings.

You’ll end your rafting adventure near the town of Ubud where you’ll receive a welcome beverage. By now, you’ve worked up quite an appetite so once everyone is dried off and ready, you’ll make one last stop for an Indonesian buffet lunch.

I’ve made it all the way to the summit of Batur, can you guarantee that I see the sunrise?

No. Unfortunately, we cannot control the weather and at high altitudes, predicting it gets very tricky. Fortunately, no guest has ever been disappointed with the trek. The views are spectacular regardless of weather conditions.

Is it really necessary to hire a guide for Batur?

Mount Batur gets a lot of positive reviews in trip Advisor. Any negative feedback from trekkers almost always results from people who decided to trek it alone. it is perfectly legal to do so, but not advisable.

Hiring a guide will help you get the best views, the most education about the history and culture of the area and will prevent you from getting lost. Furthermore, if you are injured, you’re more likely to get assistance as well as insurance coverage if you have a guide. Finally, the locals are very protective of the volcano and may be a little aggressive if you try to trek it without a guide.

Are we allowed to camp on Mount Batur?

Yes. Mount Batur camping is highly recommended. Waking up to the sunrise is even better than climbing up to see the sunrise. Please contact us if you want to camp and do white water rafting in the same trip as this is a special package.

Can I drink the water in the river?

Please do not drink any water in Bali that is not filtered. You will almost certainly get sick. We know that in some Malukat ceremonies, the Mangku will have you drink the water from the river, but without the protection of the Mangku, drinking water from the river is not advised.

Are children allowed on this tour?

Yes, but please let your guide know at the time of booking how old your children are. Even though we provide life vests and helmets, we do not advise this package for children who cannot swim.

Are there any crocodiles or snakes in the river?

No. These creatures are very rare in this area. Snakes can be found anywhere in Indonesia, but on these treks they are rarely, if ever seen.

What happens if I am injured?

Injuries rarely happen with this package. If an accident does occur, there are both mountain rescue and river rescue teams that are available to help guests in any emergency situation. If an injury occurs, our guide will immediately assess the situation and make a call to the rescue team for assistance. If needed, next of kin will be notified and we will help the injured person return safely back to their hotel.

Will there be a lot of other tourists?

We know our guests often don’t want to see a lot of other tourists so our guides make every effort to find trails and views that are less crowded. Sometimes the crowds cannot be avoided, but our guides have enough experience to make sure you still enjoy your time.
