Mount Batur Trekking How Long

 

If we talk about trekking and hiking we may imagine hours of climbing and walking. Getting wet, being bitten by mosquitoes, getting exhausted by long hours of walking, being attacked by wild animals and so on. However, does it represent all trek that you may encounter?

 

In reality some trekking is shorter than what you can imagine. Of course there are lot of hiking tract that took days to complete, and they can only done by professionals. However in Bali, even those who have no experience in hiking can participate in trekking to Mount Batur. Since the distance is shot and the track is not to difficult for those who don’t enjoy physical exercise.

 

Compare to mount Agung which is also in Bali, Mount Batur is far from that. To complete mount Agung journey at least you need one day for round travel. Sometimes it takes more than 7 hours to reach the summit. But for Mount Batur, you can complete the track from one to two hours. Some professional even complete the journey in less than an hour. And those who are a beginner in hiking may complete the track for two hours.

 

Hiking Mount Batur is not time consuming like other Bali Trekking Tour. Because the distance is not only shorter but you can also book the tour package from the website. So you don’t have to visit the local tourism office to book for one tour. The time you spend in preparing the journey will be depend on your traveling style. If you have well written plan that you might need to book the package long before the arrival time.

 

How to Book Mount Batur Trekking?

Booking earlier than your arrival time is necessary if you want to participate in local ceremony, since Bali is known for their festival and cultural ceremonial. If you plan to join the cleansing ceremony for Mount Batur, the first thing you need to do is to check for the celebration date and make a booking on that day. However, you can still book for a tour package when you have arrived in Bali. This is because they are available everyday as long as there is no volcanic notifications.

 

As you arrive in Bali, you can have your way to month Batur as you prefer, but the time you need to reach the destination will be different. For example, if you want to join Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking Tour then you might need to prepare yourself day before the departure. Especially if you stay on the central like Kuta or Ubud. It takes around 2 hours driving from Kuta to Batur. But you don’t have worry that some agencies provide pick up services for those who stay in the central city. You are expected to be pick up at midnight since the trekking is started at four in the morning. So you can see the sun rise at 6 am.

 

How long from start point to summit?

From the nearby village, Bali Trekking to Mount Batur will take approximately two hours for beginners and one hour for professional. Because half of your track can be done by cars, and half of it is done by walking. Walking at night is better than walking at noon, since the weather is more fresh and the air is clear.

 

If you prefer trekking in the morning, you need to prepare yourself to be surrounded by people who also want to reach the summit of Mount Batur. Hiking at night is preferable because less people join the tour, as you arrive in the morning; you can see the sunrise view with intimate scenery and leave the place when other visitors are coming.

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.
