Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking TripAdvisor
One of the most beautiful places to visit in Bali is Mount Batur. Well, it is particularly for you who love trekking and climbing things so this mount must not be missed out. Mount Batur is an active volcano. It is seen from gaps of the ground and the rocks with sulfur smoke. The height is 1,717 meters above the sea level. It is reasonable anyway, if on the top, it is really cold and foggy. Meanwhile, the location is in the area of Kintamani, one of the lines to reach a famous water spring, Toya Bongkah.
In fact, climbing a mountain is never easy except for them who are experienced enough. There must be barriers and steep terrains to pass through but in the end, there is nothing but the beauty. It is not exaggerating if there are more things to be prepared before starting to do the Mount Batur vacation.
Since the best scenery is the sunrise, it means that you must do the track at night. So, whether it is with a tour guide or conducting the Mount Batur Sunrise Trek without guide, here are the things you must prepare:
The first thing you must do since the beginning is finding the right time to do the tracking. It is not suggested to conduct the trip during the rainy season. So, the most proper time can be around April – October.
Second, it is about the Mount Batur trekking companies. There are so many companies around for sure but you must choose the most recommended one, Bagus Bali Sunrise can be a good choice for all the positive reviews and great services. Meanwhile, it seems more interesting to climb the mount along with friends and relatives. The more friends are necessary to enable you to keep and protect each other.
Third, before the D-day, it is much better if you have enough rest. When you have more time in Bali, it is better for sure. So, a day before the trekking time, you can just take a rest in the hotel and inn. Well, visiting other tourist spots can just be done on other days. Fourth, it is related to the tools and equipment. There are a flashlight, foods, drinks, camera, trekking poles, and tissues. Since the Mount Batur weather is quite cold, things like gloves, jackets, socks, and sleeping bag must be brought also. The pants should be elastic to ease you while moving. Meanwhile, the strong climbing shoes are also to be worn.
Those tools and equipment are packaged into one bag or carrier. You should avoid bringing an unnecessary thing to keep the bag light during vacation. This way, the trekking is getting easier. Now, you are just ready. If you are following Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking TripAdvisor provided by a company, there must be itinerary that has been created before. Sure, it is including when you use the service from Bagus Bali Sunrise. You should not worry; our company provides a picking up service. For the sunrise package, it is started in the evening. Make sure to be ready in your hotel so that you can just directly depart when the car is coming.
The length of the journey is varied depending on the distance of the hotel to the starting point of the trekking area. The first spot to visit before doing the “real” trekking is Region Penelokan located in the area of Kintamani Bangli. Here there is beautiful night scenery of Kintamani. You may enjoy it while drinking a cup of coffee and snacking. That’s why; trekking the area with friends is more interesting than the Mount Batur Solo trek. This is one of the reasons. A coffee break is indeed fascinating with sharing and chatting, isn’t it?
After arriving in the trekking starting point, it means that the main activity must be started. The Mount Batur height itself is actually average compared to other mounts and volcanoes in Indonesia and other areas in the world. That’s why; the climbing process is quite short as well. It is only about 1.5 – 2 hours. So, when you are at the top, it is commonly still about several hours before the sunrise. What should you do to spend the night? Well, you can sleep. That’s why; it is suggested to bring the sleeping bag since the beginning. The rest and sleeping area are on the western edge of the mount.
After some hours, this is what you are looking for; the sunrise in Mount Batur. As information, the similar spot can be reached also by joining the Mount Batur sunrise trekking Ubud. In other words, Kintamani is not the only line. Back to the sunrise, how is it? It is extremely beautiful and stunning. The temperature is around 8 – 15 degree of Celsius; it is quite cold but also refreshing.
Meanwhile, the view is outstanding in which the surrounding of the top of the mount is still foggy. Then, the golden sunrise comes from the east. Some minutes later, when the sun is higher, the green forestry and hills are seen; really soothing anyway.
Finally, your trip to the top of Mount Batur to see the sunrise is over. After being satisfied with the entire scenery, taking some pictures, and more, it is the time to go back.
The trip of leaving the summit takes time approximately one and a half hours. The trip is closed by breakfast. A fancy restaurant is chosen for this Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking TripAdvisor.
