What you should know
Depending on which option you choose, the guide will provide transport to Mount Batur from Bali. It is about 2 hours drive from Denpasar (where the airport is) to Mount Batur.
If you are going to Mt Batur on your own, there are a couple of ways to get there. If you are starting out in Denpasar airport, you can get The Trans Sarbagita bus to Kuta. Once you arrive in Kuta, you can take a Perama Tour bus to Kintamani, which should leave you close enough to Mt Batur. From Kintamani, you can catch a taxi to the mountain.
Yes, you'll need a guide to hike Mt Batur.
Hiking requires preparation and a certain level of fitness. It's a good idea to train for this!
During the summer months, it is likely for it to rain which will ensure clear skies and a beautiful view. However, it is fine to hike as long as it is not raining. Do keep track of cloudy days as well as it may hinder your view of the sunrise.
The options differ from the activity type and additional places visited. Here are some of the additional options:
Natural Hot Spring
You can enjoy the hot springs after your climb and choose your final destination to be a coffee plantation visit or a local village tour before heading back to the hotel.
Choose between a visit to Sekumpul waterfall or Tibumana waterfall after your trek.
You can enjoy 2 days, 1-night camping at Mt Batur enjoying the natural hot springs and if you would like, visiting a coffee plantation as well.
Coffee Plantation Visit
Apart from the hot spring and camping options, you can choose to just watch the sunrise at Mt Batur and head down to the coffee plantation or watching the sunrise, explore the crater and then cross Lake Batur to the coffee plantation.
If you would like to experience the some of the traditions of the locals you may like this option which includes a boat ride in the caldera lake and a purification ceremony since Mt Batur is considered sacred to the Hindu community.
If you're in the Kuta area, head to Motel Mexicola for the most mind-blowing Mexican food. Located in an extravagant retro-inspired restaurant, it is filled with the sounds of Mexican music and neon lights, the extravagant architecture attracts tourists from all corners of Bali. However, it is the food that will take your breath away. From the tuna tacos to the guacamole, every bite will leave you wanting more.
Cafes are a big thing in Bali, and they do it well. Sisterfields is one of the more famous cafes out there, and for a good reason. With glass ceilings and lush greenery hanging off the walls, Sisterfields has the airy feel and the place encapsulates the entire vibe of Bali. Not to mention, the food is incredible, their pulled pork charcoal roll is absolutely to die for. If you're looking for a vegetarian option, Cafe Organic is a great option. Not only is their outdoor seating an aesthetically pleasing background for your next Instagram post, but their food is also so good! Particularly, their breakfast criminal, that is so filling but yet you will find yourself going back for seconds.
If you have a day to spare, head out to Nusa Penida, an island situated at the south of Bali. It is famous for its naturally formed coastal cliffscape at Kelingking beach that looks like a T Rex. The view from the top is great but those that are feeling particularly more adventurous might try to overcome the rocky terrain and try to climb down to the beach. It's a tough climb with random branches and slopey steps, but it's definitely worth it especially for those that are looking to surf. The broken beach is also another must-see, with clear blue waves and a good vantage point, the view is stunning. Be careful though, sometimes the waves get too strong so don't get soaked!
