Let's face it, some experiences are popular for a reason. You may find it a little crowded at the summit of Mt. Batur, but once you see the sun peek out from behind Mt Agung and Mt Abang, you will not regret it!In order to take in the beautiful sunrise atop the 1,717 meter high volcanic mountain you will need to be prepared for 3-5 hours of round trip hiking (depending on your fitness level). This will include several stops along the way. You will need to start the hike around 3:45am.The experienced guides of Mt Batur Sunrise Trekking will begin the trek from a lesser known starting point, giving you a more private experience along the way. The trek will begin in darkness, but don't worry, your guide will provide you with head lamp to illuminate the path. You will start off on a rather wide dirt road and occasionally see locals whiz by on motorbikes. Later you will turn into a narrow jungle trail and finally turn into a more rocky exposed mountain face path. The first half is fairly easy but once reaching half way, the path becomes a bit more steep and slippery, but with some perseverance it can be conquered. You will reach the summit just as the sky begins to turn from black to inky blue. Once at the top you can settle in and watch the sky turn to pink and orange as the sun begins to emerge. You will be able to enjoy the surroundings from a comfortable seat, overlooking the village rooftops at the bottom, sipping a hot drink and having a yummy banana sandwich and hard boiled egg cooked in the volcanic steam! After finishing breakfast and taking some time to get all the desired photos, you will head to the rim of the main crater, here you will have another great vantage point. If it's not too cloudy you will even be able to see Mount Rinjani from the neighboring island of Lombok. Your guide will also tell you a little more about the history of Mt Batur and it's long track record of eruptions. As you start the decent you will be walking down a very narrow path with steep slopes to both sides (dragon's back - makes for some awesome shots!). This trail will turn into a very gravely lava sand for a short period - be prepared to slide! The final bit of the terrain will be rocky and sturdy, albeit at times slippery if wet. The trek will complete around 8:30am, but depends on your pace.On the way back to your hotel, you can choose to stop by a Balinese coffee plantation. Here you can learn about the importance of the plant to Balinese life as well as observe the locals processing the beans in a traditional way. Here you can sample some coffee luwak, considered one of the best coffees in the world.Approximate travel times with moderate trafficFrom Ubud - 1h00minFrom Canggu - 1h45minFrom Kuta - 2h00minFrom Seminyak - 2h00minFrom Uluwatu - 2h40min

Mt Batur Sunrise Trekking is owned and managed by Jero, a Mt Batur area local who has come from a farming family. Although he had grown up helping the family with onion and tomato farming, he had always loved hiking the mountain with his cousins and friends. After getting a degree in business at a local university he decided that his own native land was rich with opportunity. He created a website with out much experience and started Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking hoping to share the beauty of the mountain with visitors and make a better living for himself and his family. Jero and his team have been Mt. Batur trekking guides since they were kids, for more than 25 years. He now employs over 20 local guides which he trains for English and deep understanding of the mountain and makes sure they are licensed by the government.

Mt Batur, hot springs, and coffee plantation. Our guide shared facts about the area, was friendly, and got us to the top quickly. It’s definitely a tiring hike but very enjoyable and the breakfast and tea at the top was great. There was steam coming out from the volcano and black volcanic sand we hiked through. Very unique experience with great views. Our driver was fun to talk to, gave us water and rain covers, and I felt there was plenty of time at each stop.

We absolutely loved our whole experience of the jeep trip up the mountain to watch the sunset. Gede our tour guide was so friendly and helpful and happy to answer any questions and take lots of pictures which we will treasure forever. Definitely recommend this tour, the jeep was so fun and made access to the mountain much easier. Memories made for a lifetime, thank you Gede

Had a wonderful experience with Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking! Pick up at the hotel went smoothly. Our driver, Adi, took us to Mt. Batur safely at 2:30 am. He answered our questions and gave a some cool history and facts about Bali. Once there, we met up with our guide, Made, and started our climb. The guide was great, took time to make sure we were doing well, and added facts and stories about the mountain. We made it up in about 1 hr and he made sure to get us the best seats. We had a small breakfast with some coffee while we waited for the sunrise. The sunrise alone was totally worth the hike. Beautiful, calm, tranquil.... Colorful. It was amazing. Made made sure we got pictures and then acted as our professional photographer. He brought us to the best spots for pictures and spent time to make sure we liked it. Lots of memories made. The hike down was faster and he made sure we were safe all the way down. Adi picked us up afterwarda and drove us back. We loved hearing about his life in Bali. Highly recommended this company for the tour. They seem to enjoy showing the history and beauty of Bali. Check out the pictures

Driver arrived on time and drive us in a fast but safely manner. Note that this is important since we were staying in Seminyak area (2 hours distance by car to Mount Batur) Guide speaks English well and helps my sister a lot during the hike. Lucky to have such a wonderful weather so we catched the most beautiful sunrise, overlooking to Mount Rinjani and Mount Agung. August is the best month to hike. We had a great spot to watch the sunrise, far away from noisy crowd.

We were surrounded by absolutely stunning vistas! Both our guide and driver were outstanding and very professional. Our guide very wisely knew where and when we could gain the best photos while avoiding crowds of others. We loved it! This was easily one of the greatest highlights of our trip.
