  • The entrance fee for foreigner is IDR 500.000, I don't know why it become that expensive. It's not even with guide. Only the entrance fee.

  • come here solo hiking when rainy season. Amazing place, quiet, and gorgeous. From park area to Post 1 is easier, but from post 1 to peak bit challenging especially during rainy season. If you a beginner this mountain is recommended but please climb on Summer season ( at leas not raining season)
  • Do not follow the map direction if you want to get the registration post, or you will ended at the abang village, down to the mountain. The best way to get the registration post is by passing the Museum Geopark Batur, you find the three junction, and turn left. Just follow the main road, in about 8 or 10 minutes you will find the registration post. It cost Rp. 24.000/ person for entrance fee at the registration post. Before the parking lot, the locals will ask you for donation as well. The mountain it self is good for beginner hiker. It takes about 3,5 - 4 hours to get to the summit. Camping is a good option when you get to the summit. Be sure that you get the Sunrise and sunset. They are very nice at the abang mountain. Stunning view, overlooking to the batur lake and mountain
  • Mount Abang is the third highest mount in Bali after Mount Agung and Mount Batukaru. It takes about 2 hours from Denpasar by motorcycle. Before entering the mount track, you should pay for the enterance ticket (just 10k rupiah). There is no parking lot, but you can park at the side of the road near the starting point track. Unlike Mount Batur, there are no toilets nor stalls near the starting point. The track to reach the top of the mount are green lush forest with mesmerizing view. Some spots of the track is really slippery and steep, thus, make sure you wear your mountaineering shoes! It has 2 stop point for you to take a rest during the hiking before reach the. Every stop point has a pelinggih (sort of a place of resident of the God manifestation in Balinese belief). The Hindu Balinese hikers usually pray while taking a rest there. Since every stop point is a holy place, it is not recommended to pee around the place. You can urinate in the bottle or in the bushes as you trekking (but not near the Pelinggih). You can set up tent here if you want. It takes around 1 hour from the starting point to the 1st stop point; 1 hour from the 1st to the 2nd stop point; and subsequent 2 hours to the top (the duration indeed depend on the hikers). At the top of the mount, you can enjoy majestic scenery. Mount Batur can be seen clearly from this place. On the other side of the top, you can see green wavy slope of the mount. Really fascinating! The hikers usually set up tent here. They spend the night and enjoy the sunrise in the morning.
  • 2-3 hour one way tracking, light/middle difficult, have several routes. Take water minimum 1L and some food, good shoes! Small temple on the top. If it rains, as on any mountain, the difficulty increases! Good luck)
  • The view from the start until the top is great, beautiful, so green, fresh.. I love the trees too! so lovely. For local people it cost Rp.15k for the administration. The track little bit wet and muddy (but it's not a problem), sometimes we need to climb the roots(?) and walk/hike like a ninja (I don't know how to describe itπŸ˜‚) well the track is so challenging, it's better than mt. batur's track, for me it's so great!! I suggest, dont use slippery shoes and use gloves when hiking (it's needed to hold the plants to help you climbing, and to protect u from burs in some plants. I think it’s better to start hiking at 1:00 am (if u want to hike relaxly(?)) or at 2 am to see the sunrise, and if u do it, dont forget to bring flashlight. No many people hiking here, and it's make me feel more free.. Please be prepared for the toilet at the tracking office, it's better to bring tissue for yourself. Oya, be careful on the way back home around the office because there are people that will stop you to offer u a pray (while she sells u bracelet), I've already tricked by them, but it's ok..πŸ˜‚ I've already go here 3 times, and waiting for the 4th ahaha.. Hope u enjoy your hiking here 😊
