    mount batur sunrise trekking

    Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking  – Mount Batur (Gunung Batur) is an active volcano located at the center of two concentric calderas north west of Mount Agung on the island of Bali, Indonesia. The south east side of the larger 10×13 km caldera contains a caldera lake. The inner 7.5-kilometer-wide caldera, which was formed during emplacement of the Bali (or Ubud) ignimbrite, has been dated at about 23,670 and 28,500 years ago. If you want to hike Mount Batur at the very best time possible, you’ll have to be prepared to wake up very, very early. Most tours will pick you up to begin your Mount Batur hike between 1:30 am and 2:30 am, depending on where your hotel is located. If you are based in Ubud, it will be about a one-hour drive to Toyabungkah village at the base of this mountain, where you can usually enjoy a hot drink before setting off on your hike.

    Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking – To reach the summit of Mount Batur, you will climb an incline of just over 700 meters and it will take you anywhere from one to two hours , depending on your level of fitness. Tour guides will typically provide you with flashlights so that you can make your way through the trail in the dark, but bring your own if you can just in case.

    At the top, you will wait for the sunrise. Slowly you will see flecks of orange, pink and yellow creep up around the horizon as you look out over to Mount Abang, cone-shaped Mount Agung, and the caldera lakes spread out on either side of Mount Batur. Take some time here to enjoy the view, snap as many photos as you can, and enjoy a breakfast. For a truly unique experience, try boiling an egg in the volcanic steam around you — your guide will likely have brought some along. Hot drinks and fried bananas are also available for sale at the top so you can warm up – keep your treats away from the monkeys that are sure to be hanging about.

    There are three craters that you can visit on your trek back down Mount Batur and you will be sure to see some recent lava flows on the mountain’s surface. It will take you another one to two hours to descend, eventually arriving back at Toyabungkah village.

    Just because your Mount Batur hike has ended doesn’t mean your experience has to finish there! The optional is Visit the nearby Batur Natural Hot Springs, but in our tour the hotspring not including. But our driver can bring you there if you would like to swimm at the hotspring.

    Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking – If spas aren’t your thing, other tours will instead bring you to a traditional Bali coffee plantation, where you can see how Coffee Luwak, the world’s most expensive coffee, is made. You can also try some other Balinese coffees and herbal teas.

    As you can see, anyone with even a moderate level of fitness will thoroughly enjoy hike to the top of Mount Batur. Though you may have to bundle up and wake up at the same time you would normally be going to sleep, the spectacular sunrise view waiting for you at the top makes it well worth it. We dare you to find a more rewarding hike in Bali than Mount Batur.
