Mount Batur trekking is a magical way to start your day. This is what I want to say aloud and bold in our mount Batur trekking review.

Bali has so many beautiful beaches that you should visit. But, the interior also has its own charm. After being satisfied with exploring the beach and the sea, you may also need to challenge yourself by climbing the most active volcano Batur.

Climbing Mount Batur in the midday is not suggested based on mount Batur trekking review since the temperature will be too hot. It’s best to start your trek a few hours after midnight. At first, you may stumble the slope or slipping your feet. It will be complete darkness and you might not be fully awake. There won’t be any illumination to see the path except your own flashlights.

While in the darkness and you won’t be able to tell how far you have gone through or how much far you have to go. This uncertainty actually can relieve you from unnecessary assumptions. You will just have to be in your moment. With your foot in front of the others, the sight of nightfall, the sweat on your back and the sound of everyone’s breathing.

If you already read another mount Batur trekking review, you might be able to know that the mount is 2,296 feet. I actually know this information while I was climbing it up. As soon as I know about this Bali trekking tour, I just couldn’t keep myself for booking the trip for the next day.

As you have gone enough far to the mountain, you will need to form a single line when it comes to the narrow switchbacks. But really, you have to enjoy every second the chance of standing at the ancient volcano which is sacred for local Hindu believers.

Safe Way to Trek Mount Batur

As I’ve explained previously on this mount Batur trekking review, I book service from a trekking company for this trip. Keep in your mind that you are in an area you don’t know a thing and you should start your trekking when it’s dark. It’s better and safest to have a guide with you.

The trekking company I suggest is Bali Trekking Trip. They have complete services to offer to you. From picking you up at your hotel, breakfast at the summit of the mount, enjoying hot springs to driving you back to your hotel. With a reasonable price, you can choose what you like to do and trekking safely with a tour guide.

With the service from Bali Trekking Trip, you will be provided with an English speaking tour guide and private driver. Every mount Batur trekking review will warn you how important it is to have a guide during sunrise trekking. You will also get some drinking water, but you can have your own in case you need more. Besides a headlight, you can also choose to bring a walking stick or not. The company will give you medical insurance and the price you paid is including the entrance fee to Mount Batur.

The View at The Top

It doesn’t really matter if you are not a professional hiker. You don’t have to wear hiking shoes for trekking mount Batur. It is just, you have to make a strong decision to wake up at 2 am so that you can be witnessing the magnificent view of sunrise at the top of 1,700 meters.

As a final point of this mount Batur trekking review, you will arrive at the top, you can just feel the magic as the dark sky turns its shades into blue, pink and finally orange. When the rays start lighting all under it, you will just feel amazing. With the light is on, now, you can see how far you have climbed. Just sit on the stone ledge and enjoy the look of village rooftops and stretching valleys while sipping coffee and eating breakfast. From this spot, you can also see the whole feature of mount Agung across the valleys.
