Mount Batur trekking will be something special, especially for those who love to see sunrise in high land. How’s this activity? Let’s find out.

The Situation Of Mount Batur

Mount Batur located in Kintamani district, Bali. It has 1717 m high above the sea level. Mount Batur known as the active mountain that has the widest kaldera. Healthy hikers can hike to summit in 2 hours. But new hikers may need more.

This mountain has beautiful scenery. There are a lot of giant rocks that naturally aranged like stairs. They covered by green plants. The combination of black stones and the green plants is so beautiful. You’ll love this extraordinary scenery. Mount Batur also has a lake, named Batur Lake. From the top of Batur mountain, the lake will be seen like backgrounded by Abang Mountain.

The path to reach the summit are rocky and slippery in many part. But the hard track will be paid by the view from the top. Especially when you climb at dawn. Mount Batur trekking will be an unforgetable challenging experience.

Mount Batur Trekking

Mount Batur is a sacred mountain that should be treat as the rule. Tourist should keep the cleanliness, act politely, and keep the natural plants in their habitat. Never waste plastics or other dirty stuff on it. Sign your writing on rocks, just to make others know you’ve been there is not necessary. You better use your camera and make your existence immortal in internet by your posts.

Mount Batur trekking is not only a trip, but it could be soul refreshment. The fresh air, the view, and the sacred situatuation may invite special feeling inside. This activity will  make you healthy and fresh, too.

This route start from Toya Bungkah. You must pay some money as registration fee. It’s not include the guide fee. If you choose to use a guide, you can negotiate the fee. Appreciate their work that help you reach summit. But the fee should be acceptable for both.

First, you’ll start with a flat path. But then getting steep, and more steep, until you meet the summit. This steep path is sandy and slippery. You’ll pass big rocks along the path. After half part of the path, you can find the first post. Here, visitors that think not strong enough to hike higher can rest there. This post located more than half way to summit. So, if you feel so tired and unable to do the rest, you can stop in this post. But if you’ve feel stronger and sure can finish your trip, go on. It may take only 40 minutes from first top to summit.

Mount Batur trekking usually do before dawn, to meet the sunrise. It’s about at 3.00 a.m. If you want to reach summit at dark, you can start earlier. Here are some tips to make your journey to mount Batur special and joyful:

  1. Realistic Trekking

Although mount batur difficulty is not too hard, before doing a trekking all tourist should prepare their self. Be sure to know your condition. It’s not wise to force your body to hike, while you’re in ill condition. This will not only dangerous for you, but it will disturb other who do the trekking with you.

Trekking to a mountain is not only walk to a place higher, but it’s about the way of mind, too. When you sure you can do it, you’ll fight to reach the top. Suggest your mind that you’re strong enough for this, and your body will support you. Do this activity with your friends that can support you.

  1. Preparation

Good preparation is not guarantee that you are one hundred percents save. But trekking without preparation is not wise. Prepare yourself with exercise couple weeks before your trekking. This will make your metabolism running well and supply enough energy for your activity.

Prepare stuffs that probably needed, like jacket, trekking shoes, raincoat, flashlight, first aid equipment, food, and water. You may need to prepare personal medicine if necessary.

Bring only the most necessary stuffs. Too many stuff that you won’t use, eat, or wear will waste your energy. It make your backpack heavy. It will slow you down. Of course you don’t want to missed the sunrise, just because you carry too many things.

  1. Enough Light

Sunrise is the purpose of almost all of the trekkers. The summit of mount Batur can reach with 2 – 2,5 hours trekking. So you must start before down or maybe midnight. Prepare good flashlight and batteries to help you see the path clearly. This will avoid accident because you can see the path well. Sometimes, the path covered by the fog. This will decrease your sight. Good flashlight will be very helpfull.

  1. Know Your Route

These days, there are a lot of people share their experience. Trekking in mount Batur is one of them. Some people think thas this mountain is easy to trek, but others may think differently. If  you plan to trek this mountain, then be sure you know where to start and the route. If it will be your first trekking, it will be better for you to have a mount batur guide.

  1. A Guide

There are guides that can help trekkers do the trekking safely. They know the route, they know the situation. It will make you enjoy your trekking. Of course they’re not free, but the fee is not that expensive. Compare it with your safety and the maximum joy you’ll get on the top of the mountain.

Visiting a place that offer beautiful scenery and challenging, like mount Batur trekking, will make your holiday meaningfull. It make your body and soul refresh. Prepare yourself with good preparation, so your experience will be unforgetable.

Fabulous sunrise and great guide We had a lovely morning, the hike was better than the hot springs for us. Donn was our guide, he was great, he went at a pace to suit us and we were at the top in good time. The bagus area was good, not too busy. Donn took some Wonderful photos of us then showed us the volcano smoke. On the way down (when it was easier to talk) he gave us lots of insight into balanise culture which we really enjoyed. He was great and we would definitely recommend using him. The spring was abit crowded for us, but good to have a dip post trek.

Amazing hike with Donnn Absolutely incredible experience!! Booked a private guide for a sunset hike up Mt Batur and got Donn as our guide. Donn made the journey incredible and was very patient when we needed to take a break and took probably 100 photos of us. He was also very knowledgeable of the area, pointing out local plants/trees that we passed, and he spoke great english. It was also really helpful that Donn brought hiking sticks (not many other guides we saw did this, and they proved to be helpful). The breakfast on top of the mountain that we ate while waiting on the sunrise was delicious (eggs, steamed banana sandwich, snakefuit, and a candy bar). 10/10 recommend and Donn is a must!!

Awesome company - great trek guide Jatayu! This trip was amazing. Although a harder trek than I anticipated (and just being less fit and ready than I thought!), one of the main highlights was our guide, Jatayu, who paced the walk perfectly, giving us stops when needed and an encouraging smile. He was great because he gave us space and quiet throughout the trek (which I really appreciated rather than having to talk a lot on the way up!), while then engaging in some really interesting discussions about Bali on the way back down, as I asked him question after question. He was just so unassuming and easygoing - it was just what we needed. He clearly works really hard for his family. His English was also great, despite him saying it wasn’t! He was so respectful and made us an awesome breakfast with coffee at the top of the mountain, while also taking endless beautiful shots and videos of us watching the sunrise, which he then transferred to us at the end. We have so many special photographed memories because of him. This guide was awesome!! Great company too who let us swap on the morning to just the trek without hot springs and didn’t charge us the difference. It was also just us and our guide. He also took us on a slightly quieter route so there not so many people.
