Mt Batur Volcano within the Kintamani Caldera.

This is probably the most popular hike in Bali and can easily be done with a moderate level of fitness. If the skies are good to you, you will have amazing views of the caldera, lava flows from eruptions back in the early 60’s, Lake Batur and Bali’s biggest mountain, Agung.

Guests can choose to do the early sunrise hike leaving south Bali around 3.30am or get up a little later and start the hike around 7.30-8.00, meaning you will have to leave south Bali around 6.00am

Some people are adamant about seeing the sunrise but we quite like the later start as it usually much quieter on the mountain with the sunrise hikers already heading down.

Note: By south Bali area we mean places like Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Kerobokan, Berawa, Canggu, Nusa Dua, Sanur etc. If you are staying outside these areas, please contact us so we can work out a plan for you.

Included is a delicious lunch with amazing views at Oculus Bali: for all other inclusions, please see below.

Always a difficult question to answer with people walking at different paces. Allow approximately 1 hour each way. It also depends on the route we take (sometimes we vary it) and whether you decide to take the walk around the top of the crater rim.

We would describe this an intermediate hike so anyone with a reasonable level of fitness will be fine.

Mt Batur is technically active but is currently quiet. It has not had a "major" eruption since 1963 with the most recent eruptions in 2000. The volcano is monitored and if there were any danger, hiking would be suspended

Mt Batur is 1717 meters (5633 feet) and sits in a caldera 11kmx13.5km with Lake Batur within the caldera being 7km long and 2.5km wide
