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.

  • An amazing experience. If you want to go to the East of the Sun, it is in the 1 o'clock in the morning. You must climb the 2.800 m along the narrow path in the jungle, and then on the stones. It is about 4 hours up and down approx. 3 hours. The output is physically demanding and requires the footwear and quality clothing. At the bottom is 25 St., top 5 Guide takes max. 3 people, you get a lamp, a stick and also breakfast. Along the way, it is possible to see wild monkeys and birds. Sunrise is indescribable.
