Do you have a plan to hike Mount Batur and enjoy the sunrise at the top? Before you do that, read our mount batur trekking review here first. Hopefully, our review will give you clear information about what you will face and what you need to prepare to have successful Mount Batur sunrise trekking.
By the way, this blog is story about our last costumers who use Bagus Bali Sunrise Trekking service:
We used the Mount Batur Trekking Tour Guide package from Bagus Bali Sunrise Trekking service. This service only provides the tour guide from the starting point to the peak and also guide for the descending part. We rented a car from the area where we stay during our vacation in Bali. Actually, this service also provides pickup service with an air-conditioned car. But, this time we only need their guide.
The first thing we do that time was telling the meeting point where we will meet our guide. If you use this service, you must tell the meeting place at least a day before the trekking day. We have to admit that this company is one of the best mount batur trekking companies you can find. They are kinds and very helpful. So, we can easily decide the meeting location as well as the time.
In order to catch the sunrise, we decide the 3 a.m. in the morning for meeting our guide. After we met our guide, we prepare everything and we get some briefing about safety trekking. Then, we went to the starting point at the foot of Mount Batur. It takes around 30 minutes, so we start the mount batur sunrise trekking ubud at 4 a.m.
This is our first time, so Bagus Bali Sunrise Trekking guide is really big help. They are really skillful and know the trekking route very well. We would be able to reach the top without the guide help. The funny thing is we thought that we try the mount batur sunrise trek without guide firstly. Our adventurer spirit sees it as a very fun and challenging plan.
However, the condition in the field is totally different than our imagination. At 4 a.m. the condition is still dark. And, the sun shows its light right at 6 a.m. Therefore, we are very lucky to find this service and use their guide. We won’t be able to reach the top in the dark without help from their guide. So, it was a good decision. So, if you plan to have mount batur solo trek, please reconsider it. It’s too risky.
Our guide is very friendly. Plus, he also can speak English quite fluently. Basically, we can easily communicate with him and his guide and instruction are easy to follow. We think this is one of the benefits you can get from using this service guide. You can really stay away from problem and danger with their guide’s help.
The ascending process is quite challenging. It needs about 1.5 hours to reach the peak from the starting point. We arrived at the peak right at 5.30 a.m. So, we just need to wait for 30 minutes, before we can see the beautiful sunrise from the peak of Mount Batur.
The waiting part maybe is one of the best parts that we would like to tell you in this mount batur trekking review. We can rest a bit, plus our guide also helps us by providing breakfast. It’s not extravagant. We get a banana sandwich, boiled egg, and hot drinks. But, that’s enough to satisfy our stomach and relieve our body from fatigue. Moreover, we enjoy this delicacy while enjoying the sunrise that slowly shows up on the horizon. What a paradise.
We are very lucky because, at that time, the mount batur weather was really good. We can see clearly the sunrise. Then half hour later, we and our guide started to go down and return to the final point of Mount Batur trekking.
The good weather was really a blessing. Our guide takes us to the crater and enjoys one of the amazing scenery in this area. We can see a beautiful rock formation. And, there are also monkeys here. So, you need to be careful. They are a wild monkey. It seems our guide used to them, but we try to avoid having contact with these cute animals because we want to stay away from the problem.
We walked for around 1.5 hours. The weather is good, so we didn’t meet any obstacle. Then, at 8:30 a.m. we arrived at the final point of the Mount Batur trekking. Our guide was finished his service and we were really satisfying. From this point, actually, we can do anything. But, this sunrise trek bali package is enough for us. So, we return to our hotel and get enough rest.
Things to Remember
If you use Bagus Bali Sunrise Trekking service, you will get equipment that you need, such as headlight, hiking pole, a meal like we mentioned above, drinking water, and you also need to pay an entrance fee to Mount Batur (all inclued). However, you also need to prepare several things by yourself.
You need to bring sun cream, comfortable clothes, and a jacket because it’s really cold up there. A camera is also important to capture the Mount Batur scenery, and money, if you want to buy food or use the toilet. That’s all. Hopefully, our mount batur trekking review helps you to have a great time in Mount Batur.
