Part of UNESCO’s Global Geopark Network, Mount Batur is an active volcano, standing at 1717 meters (5633 feet) above sea level. Your friendly, English-speaking driver will pick you up at your hotel lobby and drop you off at the base of the mountain where you’ll meet your guide and receive a short safety briefing.

From Toya Bungkah village, you’ll begin your hike before dawn under a blanket of a million stars and trek safely at a pace that suits your group. From the summit you’ll watch the sky turn from dark purple to a multitude of colors like sapphire blue, burnt orange and sassy pink as the sun rises over the eastern ocean.

The daylight will reveal fantastic panoramic photo opportunities of the volcanic valley and spectacular views of holy Mt. Agung, Mount Abang and Mount Rinjani all te way in Lombok.

A refreshing breakfast, coffee, tea and water will help to prepare you for the trek back down the mountain where you’ll see recent lava flows and the intriguing volcanic landscape.

You’ll experience beautiful scenery throughout your trek such as views of crater lake, black lava landscape and the beautiful flora and fauna of the Balinese countryside. Meet villagers along the way and learn about the history and culture from locals as well as your English-speaking guide.

You’ll arrive back at Toya Bungkah village and stop at a Balinese Coffee Plantation where you’ll get to try Luwak coffee, the rarest and most expensive coffee in the world. From here, we’ll take you back to your hotel in time to enjoy the rest of your day by the pool or on the beach.

Will there be a lot of other trekkers?

You will be guided along the most enjoyable trail, whether that means better scenery or fewer crowds. Our Batur guides are local and experienced. They know the mountain better than anyone and will find trails to avoid other groups as much as possible. We know crowds can be a concern so we do our best to manage the situation.

What if I’m afraid of heights?

Trekking volcanoes is not recommended for those who have a serious fear of high places.

It is not recommended, but some people do. It is advisable that you wear comfortable shoes or hiking boots if you have them.
