Climbing to Mount Abang was pleasant with its authentic fresh air and the tweet of forest animals that seemed to accompany the climbers.

 

This place is perfect for those of you who like adventure and are looking for freedom after a busy bustle. Don’t expect easy tracks like spots to see the sunrise on the tops of other mountains in Bali. Mount Abang Sunrise Trek will provide the sensation of adventure in the rain forest, a sacred trip through the sacred temple on the mountain, and the heaven-like atmosphere that you will never have in other hidden places.

When Is The Right Time To Climb Mount Abang?

All climbers crave sunny weather as they climb. Fine weather makes clear eyesight. They also do not need to carry many items such as raincoats, thick jackets, and supply foods like when climbing in the rainy season. When taking photos, it does not require too much effort to get good light. The path traversed is not slippery. It is easier for you to walk.

It is better to climb Mount Abang when the weather is good. So, you can predict the appearance of the sunrise and enjoy it when the orange-yellowish sphere comes. Fine weather comes with clean white clouds hanging in the sky as if it were a curtain that covered the view of Mount Batur behind it. Do not miss the magical misty that hung in the sky before sunrise. You can enjoy this view if you reach the top of Mount Abang under 5 o’clock in the morning. Amazing.

Climbing Preparation

  • Climbing Mount Abang has about the same preparation as other mountain climbing. These are all you need to prepare.
  • Get to know the terrain of Mount Abang. Mount Abang is located in the Kintamani area. It is not too difficult to reach. It is just when you arrive at the forested hiking trail, you will be accompanied by a row of trees, mountain plants, flowers, and mountain animals. The terrain is in the form of soil with cool air and dense condition. Your eyesight can be vague because it covered by mist when you start climbing under 5 a.m.
  • Get to know your body. The difficulty level is quite high, therefore, you must be in a really fit condition. Basic survival skills in the forest and mountains are also needed.
  • Carry your supplies in one backpack. Avoid carrying handbags on your left and right hand which will be troublesome along the way. The contents of your bag at least contain a jacket or warm clothes, headlamp, dry food or staple food in a safety lock container, warm drinks in a small thermos or tumbler, wet tissue for urinating need, lighters for a campfire, medicine such as topical oil or headache pills. Do not forget gloves if at any time you have to get rid of fallen trees or branches in front of you.
  • Strong mentality.
  • Change clothes such as t-shirts and trousers
  • Climbing routes that are obtained by searching on the internet or asking local people who are usually more understanding about the trek.

 

The Access Of Hiking Trail

The access to Mount Abang is quite easy. When you get to the starting point of the climb, you can see the signs provided along the hiking trail. From now on, you can learn the access to the Mount Abang trek distance climbing from where you stay, so you do not easily get lost. It is a good idea for you to stay at hotels in Kintamani or Ubud to make it easier for you to get access to Mount Abang.

 

From where you stay, use Google Map to find Suter Village in Bangli. You can go to Jalan Batur Tengah.
From Denpasar (it is about two hours to Kintamani), when you find the T-junction, you can turn left. Then, go straight ahead until you reach the last T-junction.

From this last T-junction, you go straight ahead to the Mount Abang climbing post officer. Here you can pay a very affordable entry ticket.
Park your vehicle in front of the hiking trail.

The Forest Route

Gunung Abang is famous for its unspoiled hiking trails and few visitors. When you get to the forest, you don’t need to be afraid of getting lost because the access is quite easy during good weather. But you may need a guide if this is your first hiking on Mount Abang.

However, if you are not confident with yourself, you can ask a guide from the post officer to accompany you during the climb or book this with the right Bali trekking company.

 

You have to arrive in the forest at least 3 a.m. to catch the sunrise around 5.30 a.m.
Follow the path in the forest. The path becomes slippery when it rains. You may find many leeches around you. Sometimes you also see the fallen trees in several hiking trails. Use the tree as a foothold when climbing.
You will see several holy temples in the middle of the mountain.

Why don’t you get a rest and take photos there?

The misty atmosphere from the top of mountain at 4 or 5 in the morning will beautify the scenic spot there. After sunrise, you can clearly see the beautiful background of Mount Batur and Batur caldera.
The Mount Abang trekking start point becomes closer when you are stay around Kintamani and Ubud. It would be better if you are in this art village before having do Mount Abang sunrise trekking.

Amazing... We hebben een geweldige ervaring gehad met onze gids Tana. Hele vriendelijke jongen en bracht ons naar een super mooie plek waar we met nog 2 andere mensen de zonsondergang hebben bekeken. Niet in de mega drukte boven op de berg. Zeker aan te raden om met gids Tana de berg te beklimmen. Het was een super mooie ervaring

Private Tour Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking, Coffee Tasting and Natural Hot Spring Had an amazing private 2d1n camping tour with guide Jatayu. He made sure everything was ok and I was pacing well hiking up and coming down from Mount Batur. I did not had to worry about my meals, camp and hydration has he has everything well prepared, and just enjoy the hike, the view and the overall experience. I also enjoyed trail running down Mount Batur with Jata. Jata also takes amazing videos and photos throughout my trip and never had to worry about missing any good shots! Also, shout out to my driver Yoga for being endlessly patient with the Bali traffic and being so punctual! I am glad I have experience the other side of Bali with Bagis Bali Tour! Would recommend!

Jata the Best Tour Guide We had such an amazing time doing the Mount Batur Sunrise Hike with Bagus Tours. Our guide Jata was one of the most sweetest, friendliest people we have met on our trip and he really made the experience special for us. He made sure everyone was hydrated and to slow down or stop if anyone in the group got tired. Once we got to the top he cooked us a delicious breakfast and even surprised us with his fantastic photography skills. He was extremely warm and caring, he shared so many personal stories and we had so much fun running down the mountain with him. The driver was also very punctual and patient and he took us to a coffee plantation tasting which was another nice and fun activity. This was really a once in a lifetime experience, possibly our favourite in Bali, thank you to Jata and Bagus for such a great time! We will remember you Jata, thank you for making our trip so memorable. We definitely recommend the hike to anyone else visiting Bali!

Outstanding Sunrise with Omar I cannot recommend this trip enough. The entire trip is so well planned and catered towards individual needs. We were picked up by a private taxi at 2:30am, we met Omar (our guide) at 3:30am and began our ascent up the mountain. He spoke great English, told us some brilliant stories and even provided us with a breakfast at the top of the volcano! Omar took plenty of photos and he even had a bluetooth speaker to play some Irish music en route to the top! ️ Amazing sunrise to top it all off - the highlight of our trip to Bali.

Magnificent Sunrise Experience on Mount Batur with Mr. Adi We had an unforgettable experience during our private Mount Batur and black lava sunrise tour with Mr. Adi. His choice of location to watch the sunrise was perfect, away from the usual tourist crowds. He explained well the stories about the Batur mountain and its craters as well as the Hindu religion. Additionally, his photography skills added an extra edge to our adventure.
