It was well organised and the transport from ubud was on time. The guide was very friendly and made it an enjoyable trek. Sunset is not guaranteed but it was a good feeling to reach the summit and the views are worth it alone

Soooo cool trip! No one but our group and the locals! Totally recommend if you wish for a less traveled view.

Helpful Questions

How long does it take to climb Mount Batur?
It can take 1-2 hours to summit Mt Batur, depending on how fit you are - so in total going up and down will take you 4 hours. If you do the alternative Batur caldera route (which has 20-40 persons a day compared to the usual summit route of 300-600 persons), it'll take 30-60 minutes to climb each way.
How hard is it to climb Mount Batur?
It's one of the easiest volcano climbs, and is very beginner-friendly. The climb is on a very well-trodden path, the incline isn't very steep, and it only takes 1-2 hours each way (4 hours in total). So if you're able to walk for 4 hours on a moderately inclined path, you should be able to do the climb without much trouble.
Is Mount Batur worth it?
It is the most popular hike in Bali because you get to see a gorgeous sunrise (in good weather!), panoramic views over Lombok island and Mt Agung after a reasonably easy hike. So it's worth it if all you're looking for is some time out in nature and a good view. The only downside is that the mountain is very touristed, and it sees 300-600 hikers a day - so you will have lots of people around you during the climb. If you prefer a less touristed route we would highly recommend the alternative Batur caldera climb which only sees 30-40 persons a day - this climb is slightly easier (half the time), it gives you a gorgeous panoramic view and it also includes a boat ride across the Batur caldera lake which is cool!
What are the best activities to do at Mount Batur?
Some of the best activities to do at Mount Batur include hiking to the summit to catch the sunrise, exploring the volcanic crater, and enjoying a relaxing soak in the hot springs.
What is the best time to visit Mount Batur for a sunrise hike?
The best time to visit Mount Batur for a sunrise hike is early in the morning, typically starting the hike around 4am to reach the summit in time for sunrise.
