***Please note this experience requires 2 participants to proceed. If the minimum is not met, it may be rescheduled or you may opt to top up. If you are the only person being picked up from a given location, you may also need to top up IDR 500,000. Your guide will inform you if that's the case.Climbing Mt Batur in a small group offers the best way to experience this epic volcano! You will save money and get a more fun experience as you share it with new found friends! When you join a group hike you will get a chance to meet people from all walks of life that you may not have encountered otherwise. Additionally hiking with a group provides safety in the event that an injury occurs. Our guides are first aid trained, and always carry a first aid kit. Guides are familiar with trails, know what to do when encountering wildlife and factor in all weather conditions to ensure that you feel supported and secure when in the wilderness. What to ExpectPick up You will be picked up from your hotel in South Bali or Ubud and taken to the start of the hike in Kintamani, at the base of Mt Batur. As this is a group pick up, the exact time will vary depending on the location of your hotel, but will be sometime between 1.30-2.30am. Your guide will indicate the night before an approximate time. Start of the Trek You will arrive to the start of the trail around 3.30 and after a brief introduction you will begin the hike along with other fellow climbers.  The trek will begin in darkness, but don't worry, your guide will provide you with head lamp to illuminate the 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. Reaching the Summit You will reach the summit of 1717 meters 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! Psst.. it's cold at the summit, especially in early morning! Make sure you have a jacket and long trousers are also a good idea. The Descent 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. The trek will complete around 8:30am, but depends on your pace.Back to Your Hotel 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. Please note the stop at the coffee plantation is not included in the price. You will pay at the entrance.

Ubud sunrise hiking is owned and managed by a local family of Balinese who were born and grow up in Mt. Batur village, we work as Mt. Batur trekking guides since we are kids, for more than 20 years. Our teams are licensed local guides trained by the government with deep knowledge of Mt Batur and its history. All of our guides are locals from the areas we cover, so they really know the geography, history and culture of the region. For example, anytime you head up Mount Batur on a Ubud sunrise hiking, your guide will be someone who grew up next to the mountain and knows all the ins and outs of the trails and where to get the best views. Likewise if you head to Lombok you’ll be travelling with a local guide.

They picked us up on time from Ubud 02.30 am. It takes an hour to the base and meet our friendly guide, Wayan.
Thank you for such a great sunrise trekking.

Ubud Sunrise Hiking 09 Oct 2022
This was a small company trip for 8 of us. We started the tour at Mt Batur with Sari (you can find* her here - https://www.instagram.com/sariningsari/) and Don. They are amazing and professional guides that speak good English! They really showed us a route with fewer tourists and took care of us like their babies. We were impressed that they packed extra weight in their backpacks for us (ie. Bananas, chocolates, extra torch lights, bottles of mineral water), and their stash came in pretty handy. Here are some of the most memorable highlights during the trip: 1. 1 of us was wearing slippers as he lost his shoes a day before the hike. Sari and Don loan him a pair of shoes from a nearby village that matches the size of his feet. 🤯 2. It was extremely extremely extremely cold, and it was our fault for not reading the description on Seek Sophie's website that we're supposed to wear jackets and long pants. All of us wore dry-fit T-shirts and shorts. We were basically freezing, and it was so cold that mist was coming out of our mouths. Sari and Don kept reassuring us that as we hiked, we'll feel warmer. Their words of encouragement helps and were truthful. We reached Mt Batur at around 3 am, and within 10 to 20 minutes of hiking, warmth kicked in, and we no longer felt cold. 3. 2 of our unfit teammates weren't feeling well. 1 had pulled her muscles and had to keep resting. Don went to search for a tree, broke a branch to make a hiking stick for her and even ensured that the stick matched her height. The other teammate vomited and felt nauseous; Don kept taking care of her, gave her chocolate bars, and ensured us that it was free and not to worry. (ie. they weren't those guides that will scam you and charge extra money) They allowed us to rest as long as we needed instead of forcing and pushing us to catch the sunrise, which we greatly appreciate. 4. It's not a big deal to most people for this point - We like the fact whereby Sari and Don will say, "1 more minute to reach the next resting point." And it was actually less than 30 seconds when we reached the resting point. It makes us feel encouraged, and her words can be trusted. 5. Sari was extremely humourous, honest and a pretty Balinese. She informed us that we were not able to reach the top to catch the sunrise, but she will bring us to a secluded place with zero to no tourists, and we could rest there to watch the sunrise + have our breakfast there. The view was like out of a fairytale! There were only 2 other tourists and the rest of us. We were able to see the sun rising gracefully while Sari personally cooked us breakfast at that shop to serve us 😂 6. Sari has excellent photography skills. She took amazing photos for our team and has loads of creative ideas for fun shots. 7. Climbing down mt batur was the scariest part. Sari showed us a way to effectively hike down fast, and that is to run. I know it's scary, for fear of danger was shouting in our minds, but we trusted her. She held one of our teammates' hands and sped down. Soon afterwards, each one of us tried and had the courage to follow her instructions. I won't recommend old folks to run, but for young people that want to fill their bodies with adrenaline, hold Sari's hands and try it for yourself! We highly recommend Sari and Don for your Mt Batur hiking experience! For the rest of the trip, the hot spring and buffet were alright. Perhaps we were too tired and didn't even visit the coffee farm. So, we shall not leave further comments on the remaining part of the trip. Fun fact - Sari used to have an insta account of 50k followers until her account got hacked. This just shows how popular she is as a guide. We left her insta account here because it's a good initiative that Seek Sophie promotes tourists to support locals. Sari and Don are hardworking guides that deserve to be recognised. Using Seek Sophie platform was also easy and straightforward. Their support team addresses all my concerns fast and was friendly. Because year-end is commonly a rainy season, Seek Sophie's team also assured us that cancellations could be made 3 days prior or postponed till next year. Do check with them on the latest updates for their postponing policies, I'm sure their efficient team will be able to take care of your worries.
