    You get picked up at 2 am in the morning from your hotel or other accommodation. After about 2 hours drive to mount Batur the trekking begins at 4 am. It takes about 1 hours 10 minutes to 1 1/2 hours to reach the peak.


    There are three different routes:

    Mount Batur routes (short, medium, long)


    • The short route: Ascent, visit one crater, descent
    • The medium route: Ascent, visit two craters, descent
    • The long route: Ascent, visit all three craters, descent
    • Hint: If you are not sure, just opt for the short route. After breakfast on the peak you can still decide to pay a bit more and then take the medium or long route.

    Climbing the Batur volcano: I am 55 years old and have about 30 kg overweight. For me climbing the volcano was very exhausting. I thought I would be fit enough because I walk 10 km in under two hours every week. The first half of the route was no problem for me, but from there the route is very steep uphill. I thought it was impossible. Our tour guide however was very attentive and polite. We ended up taking a lot of short breaks to breathe until I reached the top totally exhausted. But despite my handicap there was still enough time to watch the sunrise. This grandiose view was definitely a compensation for the hard climb up. I recovered quite quickly and managed the descent without any problems. It is definitely necessary to bring enough water and at least one T-shirt to get changed. Firm shoes are essential. With sneakers you will get problems going up. Only young people were wearing these but they were also completely sweating. When you’re on the top waiting for the sunrise it becomes quite chilly. Don’t think too easy about this tour as it is pretty difficult to get to the top.
    A great tour worth getting up early!!: We were picked up from our accommodation on time. The guides who went with us up the volcano were cool and spoke really good English. The views over the landscape are breathtaking, even if there are none during the ascent and you are properly sweating. Nevertheless, you can always ask the guides for a break. It is not advisable to master the ascent in record time, as then you will have to sit and wait at the top for the sunrise and freeze yourself. A change of clothes is important. All around we were very satisfied and it was definitely worth it.
    A Bali-must: We decided to do the tour on short notice. Nevertheless, everything worked out perfectly. The climb is not (make SURE to wear sturdy shoes), but the view from the top is worth every drop of sweat (remember to bring a change of clothes)! An absolutely perfect trip.
    It was cool!: A must-do. Although it is annoying to make the hike up in the middle of the night, the view of the sunrise at the top is worth every step. From the organizational side everything worked out without problems. We did have a speedy group though, and we were at the top already 45 minutes before the sunrise, where, because of the wind it got really cold. But that's my only negative memory. Everything else was great. Those who are fit and fast will be attracted to this volcano :)
    An insanely great experience: The driver picked us up on time and took us to meet our guide. The guide customized everything to suit us and told us a lot about the volcano. Despite the clouds the sunrise was stunning! It was worth every step. A volcano tour cannot be compared to climbing a normal mountain. We saw craters and smoke coming out, and they even cooked bananas and eggs in the hot holes! It was an incredibly great experience :) Would do it again in a heartbeat. PS. Take snacks with you. The guide provides you with nothing ;)
    Worth every step: The climb was a little bit harder than we expected but the view from the top made us forget all our hard efforts. Especially funny were all the numerous, cheeky monkeys at the summit, don't forget to look after your things there. Highly recommended.
    Batur: Climbing Batur was very tiring but definitely worth it. Our guide was simply great! During pick-up we were a bit doubtful as the driver was very tired and we felt he might fall asleep on the wheel, especially as it was not 1.30-2am but already 2.30am. We shouldn't have worried; the driver didn't join us for the hike, instead he spent the whole time at the parking lot sleeping in the car.

    As the others have already mentioned, it is not an easy hike. We were grateful that we came well-prepared with good hiking boots. The guide often helped me in steep and stony parts by holding my hand. It was definitely worth it and we would do it again. The view was awesome!! Originally we had planned to go visit Monkey Forest on the same day, but there was no need for that, as around sunrise time we met many monkeys on the volcano and were even able to feed them. Some hikers decided to take the monkeys on their shoulders, but I chose not to after having seen their scary teeth. It's worth it!
    batur trekking: Batur trekking was awesome. The view was so beautiful. Our guide was so friendly and helpful. I recommed that trip to everybody who wants to experience Volcano trekking in Bali.
    Awesome view, friendly tour guide: Had a great trip to Volcano Batur. The tour guide was super friendly and supportive. The tour is definiately worth booking it!
    Awesome Hike!: The view from volcano Batur is indescribable! This sunset is breathtaking. Actually we were lucky and had a clear view to Volcano Rinjani in Lombok! It was pretty exhausting though! We still went up to the top and all the way around. Amazing views and it is totally worth it. But also dangerous.
    Breathtaking view: The view from volcano Batur is indescribable! This sunset is breathtaking. Actually we were lucky and had a clear view to Volcano Rinjani in Lombok! At the montain there are inquiring wild monkeys, sadly we forgot about to bring peanuts... This is the way to kill two birds with one stone, just forget the Monkey Forest!
    Really Nice: Climbing the mount Batur Was like a little challenge and we did it all !! The view of the Sunrise is amazing ! You have to do it and be prepare because it' s not so easy like everybody say.
    Great sunrise: To do the tour was a good desicion. We should have started earlier and our busdriver was a bit late, so we weren't at the summit by sunrise. But we stopped to watch it and did the rest of the hike after. I thought it would be harder to climb up, but it was ok. All in all a great experience.
    very nice guide: wonderful volcano trip with amazing guides, very funny and very kind to us
    Great tour! A great experience!: Superb organization. Everything went smoothly and we had great weather. For this price I can only recommend.
    You have to do it: If you ever live in Bali for a while, you should climb up a volcano at least once. Mount Batur is exhausting, but it's still the easiest one. You're picked up around 2am and the ascent takes about 2-3 hours. The aim is to reach the summit by sunrise. If the weather is good, you'll have an indescribable view from the top. Also of the neighbouring volcanoes. If you still have some power left, I would recommend wandering around the 3 craters. After that your time there is up. Then you'll still have 1 hour descent to go. The tour is fun and you won't be able to get bored with the views. I promise you'll feel like Frodo on Mount Doom :)
    Awesome trip!: The trip on Mount Batur was really great. We were picked up on time and everything went smooth with the transport. Once we arrived at the mountain our tour guide was there already. She was really nice and very friendly. I can only recommend this trip and study-in-bali since it was a unique experience for a very good price!
