Itinerary

Your private driver collects you from your Bali hotel in good time to start your ascent of Mount Batur. Meet your local guide, don your headtorch and long sleeves, and start climbing through the dark—sunrise from both the crater and the summit above is one of Bali’s most spectacular and is easily worth the hike.

Fuel up with an early-morning breakfast—watch out for greedy monkeys!—of hot tea and eggs cooked in volcanic soil. Explore around the crater before you descend. After a stop at nearby hot springs to soak off grime and soothe aching muscles, visit a local coffee plantation on your way back to your hotel.

Overview

Local regulations forbidding ascent of Mount Batur without a guide, coupled with the absence of public transport, makes an independent trip difficult. This private Mount Batur tour includes not only round-trip transportation from your hotel for the predawn climb but also a breakfast of volcano-cooked eggs and a trip to local hot springs—and, of course, probably Bali’s finest sunrise view.

Highlights
  • Challenge yourself with a predawn climb of an active volcano in Bali
  • Savor a breakfast of eggs cooked in volcanic steam
  • Soothe tired muscles during a visit to natural hot springs
  • Enjoy the personalized attention of your own private guide

Fantastic day

Really good trip. Would definitely recommend it. I would say the actual walk was harder and more technical than I was expecting. It would be quite tricky for the very young or very old. But there are other places to stop on the way to...More

Wonderful experience but misleading info!

We booked this "Private Tour" as it has really good reviews. The walk up the volcano is hard work but worth it: beautiful views and sunrise. Our guide was excellent as well. Unfortunately this is NOT a 'Private Tour' where you can 'Enjoy the personalized...More
