Full description

The sunrise trek to Mount Batur volcano is considered an essential Bali experience. The famous volcano stands at 1,717 m (5,633 ft) above sea level, overlooking spectacular scenery with views of the crater lake, black lava landscape, and the massive peak of Gunung Agung, Bali’s holiest mountain and the highest point on the island.

It takes around 2 hours to reach the summit (1.5 if you’re fast); the total hiking duration is usually 4 hours. Before light, you will be walking at cooler climes under an awe-inspiring blanket of stars. At the top, you will witness the sun come up over a sea of clouds before continuing to trek around the crater lake and summit ridge. You’ll be given a hot beverage and a sandwich and egg to revive your spirits.

After exploring recent lava flows and younger craters, you will head down to loop back to the starting point through a unique volcanic landscape full of native flora and fauna (watch out for the tall grass with purple blooms), encountering mischievous Balinese long-tailed macaques along the way. You must be up and early to begin their trek to make it in time for the break of dawn. You will arrive at the starting point at 3:30am and will begin with a short briefing. Arriving at the top of Mt. Batur takes 1.5-2 hours (3.5km); the total distance of the trail is around 11km.
