From there you will get back on the boat and take a short ride just a bit further up the shore to get to Trunyan Village.

    Is the Caldera hike different from the Mt Batur summit hike? We do not want to do the summit hike but something more easy.
    Manoranjan, 19 Nov 2023
    The Caldera hike is different from the Mount Batur summit hike. The Caldera hike is considered less strenuous and less crowded compared to the summit hike. It offers a unique view of Mount Batur, Lake Batur, Mount Agung, and even Mount Rinjani in the distance. This trek is mostly known only to locals and is one of Bali’s hidden gems. If you're looking for an easier trekking experience, the Caldera hike would be a great choice.
    Hi, if we add on the option gasoline cover, what other places can will the driver bring us to? Thanks!
    Ellis, 31 Oct 2023
    Hi Ellis, this Gasoline coverage is inclusive of additional areas you'd like to visit in Kintamani area such as having lunch at Montana Del Cafe with a beautiful majestic view of 3 mountains. Nevertheless, if you have different preferences, please don't hesitate to let us know at chat@seeksophie.com , and we can check with our host to see if they can accommodate them. Looking forward to assisting you. 😊
