Mount Agung, Bali

(4.4/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • 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!
