  • They force you to take a guide. The only time possible is to pick you up between 2:00 - 2:30 AM. Our driver was late, so we missed the sunrise. After the trek, they lead you to a coffee plantage...

  • You come here for the sunrise and the ocean of clouds, they're stunning. The bad is if you're a foreigner you'll probably be pestered by locals to hire a guide or ride their trail bikes to the top...

  • Wow wow wow this place!! We started our hike up at around 2:30/3am. It took us a little bit under 2 hours to reach the top. We waited for the sunset while our guide offered us a breakfast box with some snacks and coffee. The hike to the top is all uphill and rocky so wear hiking shoes and it gets pretty chilly at the top so get a jacket and wear long pants or leggings. The hike was a loop which was great because after sunrise the views and the hike back was absolutely stunning!! We stopped every now and then to absorb the beauty of the place and see parts of the mountain where volcanic steam comes out! Really beautiful and an amazing experience. We had a car and driver take us to Mount Batur and then another tour guide who hiked up with us. We drive from Ubud to Mount Batur which was around an hour drive. Our driver Gade was really great. Really informative and also takes people all around Bali. I really really highly recommend him. If anyone needs a ride there his WhatsApp number is: +62 819-9988-0856 Our tour guide’s name is Wayan. Very nice guy and his English was great so we chatted during the hike and he was also very informative. Really recommend this hike. It was stunning and worth the early morning rise and uphill trek!
  • Great hike but gotta start pretty early in the morning if you wanna catch the amazing sunrise. Would definitely recommend this hike to the summit. Just be aware that there are moneys at the top so don’t leave things unattended.
  • One of the mountains that must be visited. it takes 1.5 to 2 hours to reach the top of Mount Batur. the terrain is quite uphill and sandy. very suitable for beginner climbers. there you can enjoy the sunrise which is really very beautiful and in the distance you can see several other mountains such as Mount Rinjani and Mount Agung. In addition, there is a hot spring that can be seen emerging from the crater.
  • Absolutely stunning views, and some really interesting facts about the mountain which took me by surprise. Me and my partner did the sunrise hike, I would say that it is reasonably challenging as the conditions underfoot are unstable and a bit slippery but more than manageable if you are relatively fit. The way up is steep, and as you ascend it does get pretty cold, so make sure to bring a jumper with you because when you stop at the top you will cool down. The views from the top are breath taking, and if you are lucky to get a cloud free sunrise it is beautiful. We hiked the long way round and back, checking out the hot steam coming out of the active volcano, saw the black lava flow and temple. I would recommend.
  • Had been here for an early morning sunrise trek, which began with pick-up from my hotel at around 1 AM, and the trek started at 3 AM with a local registered trekking expert. Not a very difficult trek, it is about 2 to 2.5 hrs. uphill, and a bit lesser when descending. Although it will be super cold, be prepared to sweat a lot, and have the best exercise of your life. The last ten minutes are quite steep & it was dark, and drizzling. Unfortunately, could not get to see the sunrise due to weather, but totally worth doing this trek.
