Mount Batur Trekking Routes:

To climb Mount Batur, there are three paths that can be taken, namely:

a. Via Jati temple,
→ This path is the full path of the black rocks. This path is the most widely used by tourists. In addition to requiring the shortest travel time, this path also leads us up to Sunrise Point Area of Mount Batur at this. Many of the tourists who climb only up at this sunrise point.

 

But if we want to climb up to the summit of this path is less suitable, because of Sunrise Point to the summit very uphill and filled with sand.

 

b. Via Toya Bungkah
→ Half of this pathway is a solid ground is overgrown trees shade. After passing through the trees, our eyes will be amazed to see the panorama of Mount Abang plus a beauty view of the lake Batur. In this section the track will be more uphill and sandy.

 

After one hour walk we will arrive at a track full of red rocks but it is not so difficult. Then the track followed by the flat road before we finally reach at the peak.

(At this point is also provided a shortcut to Sunrise Point Area)

 

c. Via Bukit Mentik,
→ The line is the most rarely used by hikers, because this track requires a longer time. However, this track is suitable for climbing when we want to enjoy the sunset at Mount Batur.

Sunrise/Sunset - Highly Recommend Kliwan was an excellent guide. Very friendly and took great pictures. We didn’t want to wake up so early (most tours start at 1:30a pickup) so we did the sunset/sunrise package. The tour started from DPS airport which was convenient to be picked up directly after landing in Bali as well. You can never predict the weather, but the sunset was beautiful despite a lot of clouds. But the sunrise is definitely the better view with the sun rising out of the ocean horizon. We like to hike and camp and thought the camping accommodation was basic, but sufficient. I may have brought a sleeping bag liner, pad, and a blow up pillow next time. They provide a sleeping bag, pad, and pillow, but I I like a little more cushion in the pad/pillow. But if you’re tight on space, you definitely don’t need it. The hike was tougher than I thought, but not technical. There are hundreds of people that do it every day so even beginning hikers can do it. But prepare yourself for a short, but tough climb. It can be accomplished by anyone, just build in time for lots of breaks on the way up.

Mt Batur jeep+hiking combo We booked the private jeep tour + hiking to the top for 2 people. Waking up at 2.30am is never a nice experience but was def worth it! The transfer then the jeep brings you half way and then there is a further 45 min to walk to the top. Be prepared though the walk up is not easy on sand like lava stones. So take the walking stick offered by your guide. The sunrise and the view from the top is great. It was busy when we did it but I guess that's the downside of any popular activities in Bali. What made the experience great though is definitely our guide Gede who was super friendly and was a great photographer ! Many thanks.

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!
