Trek up Mt Batur, an active volcano situated among impressive natural scenery. Head to its crater on a guided tour, or travel independently--the walk up isn't particularly difficult, even to fairly inexperienced hikers. Set within the much larger crater of a volcano that erupted thousands of years ago, the site offers views from the top that include a crescent-shaped lake and volcanic scenery hemmed in by high crater walls.

  • The most stunning sunrise I've ever seen. I highly recommend doing the sunrise trek + Ayung river rafting. What a blast! If you wanna see, check out my vlog from that day! We had so much fun!

  • Wow wow wow this place!! We started our hike up at around 2:30/3am. It took us a little bit under 2 hours to reach the top. We waited for the sunset while our guide offered us a breakfast box with some snacks and coffee. The hike to the top is all uphill and rocky so wear hiking shoes and it gets pretty chilly at the top so get a jacket and wear long pants or leggings. The hike was a loop which was great because after sunrise the views and the hike back was absolutely stunning!! We stopped every now and then to absorb the beauty of the place and see parts of the mountain where volcanic steam comes out! Really beautiful and an amazing experience. We had a car and driver take us to Mount Batur and then another tour guide who hiked up with us. We drive from Ubud to Mount Batur which was around an hour drive. Our driver Gade was really great. Really informative and also takes people all around Bali. I really really highly recommend him. If anyone needs a ride there his WhatsApp number is: +62 819-9988-0856 Our tour guide’s name is Wayan. Very nice guy and his English was great so we chatted during the hike and he was also very informative. Really recommend this hike. It was stunning and worth the early morning rise and uphill trek!
  • Great hike but gotta start pretty early in the morning if you wanna catch the amazing sunrise. Would definitely recommend this hike to the summit. Just be aware that there are moneys at the top so don’t leave things unattended.
