Anyone who wants to skip the hectic day even for only one or two days, would prefer to go a place he had never visited before. The goal is definitely clear. He wants to give a gift for himself after days of struggling with work. There are few things more rewarding in leisure time than watching tv all day, ‘potato couch-ing’ while browsing the internet through your gadget, taste the food at the new restaurant, or browsing the mall for window shopping. One of them is Mount Batur trekking tour.

Mount Batur is the great place to escape from the daily routine at work. And also the prominent spot to enjoy the beautiful sunrise. Not only for those who used to go hiking up the mountain, but also for the ones who need new experience in hiking or trekking. Everyone who has seen the sunrise on Mount Batur must feel how wonderful it is to reach the top of the mountain and feel the fresh air there.

Some say that Mount Batur trekking is quiet easy. Even for the beginners. But, in reality Mount Batur trekking is quiet risky. The risks that may be faced by the visitors include running out of food, hipotermia, fatigue, and losing small things. However, all of these risks can be overcome by buying food at food stalls at several trekking points. Although the price is quiet expensive. It’s understandable because the sellers also have to climb Mount Batur while carrying food and drinks. They need so much efforts to do this.

And for the fatigue, it is actually has to be anticipated from the start by doing a lot of physical exercise and consuming enough food before the Mount Batur trekking. It is challenging leisure time, isn’t it?
What about you? Do you wanna feel the same way there? Here is the direction to do this amazing trekking in one of the famous mount in Indonesia.

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.
