What You Can Expect

Mount Batur Trekking
Catch the sun rising above the clouds as you climb Bali’s famous Mount Batur, an active volcano part of UNESCO’s Global Geopark Network. At sunrise, the sky turns from black to inky blue to pink and orange revealing the expanse of the volcanic valley.

It takes around 2 hours to reach the summit (1.5 if you’re fast); the total hiking duration is usually 4 hours. Before light, we will be walking at cooler climes under an awe-inspiring blanket of stars.

At the top, you’ll watch the sun come up over a sea of clouds before continuing to trek around the crater lake and summit ridge. You’ll be given a hot beverage and a sandwich + egg to revive your spirits. 

After exploring recent lava flows and younger craters, we’ll head down to loop back to the starting point through a unique volcanic landscape full of native flora and fauna (watch out for the tall grass with purple blooms), encountering mischievous Balinese long-tailed macaques along the way.

Travelers must be up and early to begin their trek to make it in time for the break of dawn. You will arrive at the starting point at 3:30am and will begin with a short briefing. Arriving at the top of Mt. Batur takes 1.5-2 hours (3.5km); the total distance of the trail is around 11km.
