Set your alarm for an early start, as your day begins with pick-up from your hotel between 1am and 2.30am. On arrival at the base of Mount Batur, meet your guide and set out on the around 2-hour climb by twilight. After a challenging uphill hike, arrive at the summit between 5.30am and 6am, and reward yourself with a delicious breakfast and hot coffee as you await the sunrise.
Make sure you have your camera ready as you watch the spectacular sunrise over the sacred volcano and admire dazzling views of Lake Batur and the caldera below. After breakfast, spend around an hour trekking around the crater and exploring the dramatic landscapes, before setting out on the around 1.5-hour descent.

The driver seemed to be very tired...
, Apr 2017
The driver seemed to be very tired and was having trouble seeing the road on the 1am journey to the base of the volcano, unfortunately one of my daughters became ill and we were not able to complete the trek. The guide on the trek was very helpful and offered alternate arrangements. The driver on the way back was quite put out due to our early return and said he needed to sleep, pulling off the road at one point to close his eyes for a minute. This was very unnerving for myself and my 2 daughters. We asked to be taken directly back to our hotel however he took us to a coffee plantation which was not open as it was only 7am at this stage. We did make it back in the end.
