Hikers will enjoy climbing this volcano, and the rewards of the views into the crater and of the crystal clear waters of Lake Batur. (Note: visibility may be limited during the rainy season, Dec.-March.)

My partner and myself booked a private tour with Bazir following reviews we had seen on trip advisor. We paid 1,500,000 IDR for the both of us. Bazir’s father picked us up from our hotel bang on time at 2.30am. We drove for around 1...More
We booked the trek through our villa and I am glad we did. Talking to a few people at the top, it sounded like they took the cheap option and that is exactly what they got! Our guide picked us up from the villa and...More

Fantastic scenery and serene atmosphere.
Great people and lots to see. The weather changes very quickly as you ascend towards the mountain region and sudden rain showers can be expected.

We didnt want to get up for the morning trek with kids so we visited from Seminyak on a day trip. The resturant was very nice and traditional Indonesian with Western options. Views of the Volcano were great. Make sure you go before 2pm as...More
If you can handle the early morning and the physicality of climbing up (and down) then this is a must do when in Bali.
Do your research and book with a good guide to avoid all the busy routes and crowds. We organised via our...More
Well organised trip up Mount Batur. We were actually the only people on this trek and the only people walking up the mountain that evening which definitely improved the experience. We are two relatively fit people and honestly found the trek quite hard work, but...More
This requires a lot of effort but you will be rewarded once you get to the top and see the views.... they are amazing!
Really early start is a must for this, I wouldn’t want to do it in the heat of daytime and sunrise...More
Talk to your driver to try and get the temple included - everything is negotiable. We just did the climb, we left Ubud at 2.30am and we were walking up the volcano before 4am. We were back in Ubud just after midday. Is this... More
Talk to your driver to try and get the temple included - everything is negotiable. We just did the climb, we left Ubud at 2.30am and we were walking up the volcano before 4am. We were back in Ubud just after midday. Is this the timeframe you have?? There isn't much distance between the two (on a map) and traffic in that region is pretty good so I can't see it would take a lot of time. Are you planning on climbing Batur? It is a 4-5 hour round trip climb depending on fitness and how small your kids are... Good luck!!
