The sunrise trekking tour of Mount Batur was one of our most memorable experiences during our honeymoon! Ari was our trekking guide and he was awesome. It was definitely a difficult hike for us inexperienced hikers, but Ari was very confident and made us feel like we were doing great! Water, a simple but delicious breakfast at the top of the mountain, and flashlights are included in the tour, but I would bring a walking stick it's quite steep at times and a blanket it got very cold at the top of the mountain. The 1:45am wake up call and 2 hour pitch black hike were more than worth the beautiful sunrise that we got to witness. We were apprehensive about the Luwak Coffee Plantation stop on the way back, because in all honesty we were EXHAUSTED after the trek, but we are so glad that our driver insisted. The plantation has a beautiful view and the free tasting of 14 different teas and coffees was delicious! Add this to your list and request Ari!
My partner and I had a fantastic time at Mt batur.
Our driver wayan was very friendly and got us there safety. He went out of the way to stop off at some beautiful viewing points.
The tour guide Ari was fantastic. Charismatic, informative and hospitable. Tough hike but worth the views
This was an amazing tour! We were picked up right on time with a very clean and near new car and driven for 2 hours to start our trek. Our local guide met my father and I as soon as we arrived. He was very knowledgeable and even though we climbed the difficult way up the mountain we felt very safe. My father is 67 and the guide was very patient with stopping for him to collect his breath. Views were incredible and I highly recommend this!
