Mount Batur - Review
This scenic area is the gift of spectacular volcanic eruption of Mount Batur 10,000 years ago which has resulted into a beautiful deep crater lake and bubbling hot water springs. The Batur Lake is adjacent to Mount Batur and is picturesque. The volcano is still active and hence, the Pura Ulun Danu has been relocated which was initially on Mount Batur. Hiking and camping activities are carried out here. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Bali itinerary 3 days.

Mount Batur, Bali Reviews
Incredible experience to climb on top of a volcano. The most impressive thing is that you can see the smoke that is getting out of the crater. The probability to see the sunrise is not very high but even so, if you see it later when is a little bit up in the sky is still very nice. A good advice will be to discuss with your driver to pick you up a little bit earlier then the rest of the people ( so you can start hiking at about 3:45am) because in this way you will skip the queue on the way to the top of the mountain ( yes, it is one because there are plenty of tourists and only one tight way to get there).
Amazing trip with local guide (young boy) we climb 2.5 hours. Could buy cold and hot drinks on the top. Really nice view just windy so recommend to take some jacket or blanket. We started at 3am and went down around 7am since sunrise is at 6.15am and during the way down you have a chance to check place where you can feel hot air from volcano. We walked down back but there is possibility to take transport. Walking around 8.5 km. One of the best trip in Bali!!!
Breathtaking view. Completely serene. Not much crowded at lake. Since I hired a two wheeler, parking fee for two wheeler is 2000 IDR Half way up / down you have a very good hotel for lunch / breakfast and that comes only with buffet option for a reasonable price and with a great view of mt Batur. Be very careful if you are riding a two or four wheeler down and up the lake and mountain as the TWO WAY roads are very narrow and ridiculously twisted with unexpected turns. If you are hiring a two wheeler please ensure the brakes are excellent
If you're a beginner or an experienced hiker this is a great climb, and pretty easy for most of the way up on loose volcanic rock. There are great views either from the plateau or the summit, and last few meters up to the summit is just volcanic ash and is fun to run down on the way back down the mountain. The monkeys at the top make for some great pics!
The place is amazing! The best time to climb is before sunrise. A few hours climbing but in the end you will see beautiful sunrise! And after the climbing you can rest in the hot springs which are around mountain. You don’t need special equipment to climb on this volcano. Recommend to take some food and a little bottle of water with you. Mountain monkeys are waiting for you at the top:)
