Mount Batur is an active volcano located in Kintamani district. Enjoy the natural scenery of the volcano by climbing to the peak in the early morning to witness a beautiful sunrise through challenging trails between the mountain slopes and lava rocks. Mount Batur, Bali is one of the best destinations to experience a sunrise from the highlands of the island. Known as one of the mountains in Indonesia with the widest caldera, the peak of Mount Batur offers stunning views of Lake Batur, coupled with the solid view of Mount Abang and Mount Agung behind it.
Usually, the climb starts at 3:00 am and it is assumed that you will reach the top at 5:30 am to witness the sunrise, which starts at 6:00 am. However, if you want to be at the top before sunrise, you can start climbing earlier. Many hikers climb Mount Batur every day to spend their holiday with great hiking and adventure. The first track is still a sloping road which progressively climbs up for about 40 minutes, and then the road turns into a slippery rocky sand that continues to climb to the top. It takes less than 1 hour and 40 minutes to reach Post 1, and the last 50 minutes is for the super slippery and narrow track from Post 1 to the top.
When you reach the top of the mountain, you can enjoy the beautiful and natural scenery of the mountain with an amazing sunrise. Some important equipment to bring while hiking the mountain include flashlights, jackets, and hiking shoes. During the climb, you will be accompanied by a professional and experienced local tour guide. It is necessary to use the services of a tour guide during the climb because they already know the right path to reach the top of the mountain.
To ensure your safety during this activity, it is important to follow the instructions given by our tour guide before and during the climb. Because the climbing trip starts while it is still dark, we strongly advise you to always follow the directions from the tour guide while on the way to the top of the mountain.
