I was in a group tour, there were five persons in our group. Our driver Mr. Nengah is polite and friendly, he reached my hotel on time at 1 am. On the way he explained and advice good tips about the hiking conditions.
Everyone has different stamina but our guide Kadek is young and energetic, he is very thoughtful and helped me through out in this hiking trip. Will definitely go for this hiking tour next time, it was memorable and scenic.
What an amazing experience!! Our driver picked us up at 1:30am an hour earlier than expected, so make sure to verify the time prior via whatsapp. The ride up there wasn't too long and our group mostly slept. Once you get to the foot of the mountain you meet your two guides - we had Kadek and Wayan and they were fun and spoke great English and kept our spirit up when the hike got a bit rough. Speaking of which, it is NOT an easy hike. I'd sad medium to high level. This is because it is very hard to see they provide flashlights and the ground isn't very set as its a mix of sand and rocks. Once you make it up to the top there are several breaks along the way the view is absolutely to die for and it make it all worth it plus you get a warm breakfast and there is warm tea and coffee to great you : I would HIGHLY recommend this hike!!
Incredible experience with a wonderful guide!! Must do. Everything was fantastic and Naris our guide was so energetic and encouraging and set us up with the best spot to watch the sunrise over the lake and volcanoes. Excellent English and conversation. The coffee plantation stop was a bit uninformative and more of a pressure sales tactic but still worth the stop. Only caution, this is more than a moderate hike, very vertical on a lot of loose footing.
Great Experienced! From 1.30am hotel pick up by MR Budi Very Friendly and informative , to the challenging hike and climb of Mount Batur! Breathtaking views at the top!
Fantastic 19yr old young man guide named Kadek, he always make sure everyone are safe. Highly Recommended!
A very nice trip. Well, it is surely tough and my legs are still aching even though two days have passed. The route is tough and some part of it could be dangerous, so tourists need to be mentally prepared. After half way through the journey, I was regretting that I booked this trip. However, when you reach the top and reflect the way and have seen the magnificent view, you will realise that it is worth it! Will recommend to people who loves adventure and it physically fit. You need to take care of your knees.
