Get picked up in the early hours before dawn from your Bali hotel. You’ll be transported from there to the foot of Mount Batur, one of Bali’s most sacred mountains for the island’s Hindus, to begin your trek.
Before starting the climb, listen to safety instructions and a brief orientation from your guide. When you’re ready you’ll begin the ascent of Mount Batur in the darkness of pre-dawn, typically between 3:30 and 3:45am. Continue your climb towards the summit, arriving at the peak right around sunrise at 6am. The inspiring sight of the new day breaking over the clouds and the island below is sure to be spectacular.
Celebrate your adventure on top of Mount Batur by fueling up with an early-morning breakfast. Sip on tea to warm up while your guide prepares eggs using heat from the volcanic steam escaping from the crater. You’ll have time to enjoy your breakfast and explore the volcano’s three different craters before returning back down around 9am.
On your way back from your Mount Batur adventure, stop at a natural hot springs, allowing you to soak off the grime from your hike and soothe your aching muscles. You’ll also have time to visit a local coffee plantation, where you can learn about the process behind Bali’s famous ‘Luwak Coffee’ produced by the digestive process of civets. You’ll return back to your hotel just after noon.
