Mount Agung, Bali
(4.4/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Climb to the highest point in Bali at Mount Agung, an active volcano. Although it has not erupted since 1964, the volcano still belches smoke and ash occasionally from its large, deep crater. The Balinese believe the volcano to be a replica of Mount Meru, the central axis of the universe according to Hindu mythology. Climb to the lip of the crater, or continue on all the way to the summit to enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Along the way, stop at one of the largest and holiest Hindu temples in Bali, which features stepped terraces and courtyards centered around a lotus throne. Unfortunately, a local syndicate operating in and around the temple targets tourists, forcing them to pay for a guide to accompany them to see the majority of the temple. The ascent to the summit does not require special mountain climbing experience or equipment, but inexperienced trekkers should take a guide. Wear sturdy shoes, and warm, layered clothing, including waterproof attire. Note that cloud cover obscures the view from 9 a.m. onwards. A visit to Mount Agung represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Tulamben itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • First of all, thank you so much Wayan for this amazing experience! We decided to climb Bali's highest mountain with Wayan Dartha. He's an excellent guide, very experienced and speaks perfect English. ...  more »
  • We climbed the volcano Agung. Height 3150 m it was difficult. It was unrealistically difficult. Dyspnea, goals ... wet from sweat things. When you don't want to eat or drink. When rocky surface then becomes cold and wind. Very strong wind. And then there is scary and very dangerous. But when you get the height, you scream like a crackpot. Before you offer this kind of ... While you will not see itself, not predstavish'. Lots of you have longer than has been raised. Sneakers, all are killed. You then walk half a day for sure can't, and you don't want to. For the sake of appearance, emotions and personal record worth to go. But, I recommend to take warm things. And tune in to what you're lifting up prokljanete yourself for once decided to do it.

  • Really nice peak.... We start from pasar agung at 4am.. And reach the peak before 7am.. Really nice view when sunrise..
  • This is a long and demanding track, but view from the top is totally work it. You need to start around 10pm to catch sunrise from the summit.
  • Great experience, the climb can be done on foot, isn't too bad going up but more challenging coming down because it's actually quite steep. Guide was really sweet and knows her stuff ☺️ take a hoodie for the top, gets cold until sun comes up. DO IT
  • Memories for life!
  • I love maps!
