Hired a car for the day specifically to go here. Car hire cost US$28 for the day plus petrol. If your not fussed on driving yourself get a car plus driver for the day at a cost of around US$40 Including petrol and waiting around for you.
The roads in Bali are not fantastic, very busy, mopeds coming at you at evey angle.
From the coastal town of Sanur up to Kintamani volcano took about 2 hours as traffic is slow. The traffic eases after Ubud. We went up early morning to avoid the coach trips and the clouds which cover the top of the volcano.
On the way up to the Volcano there are coffee vendors offering free tasting of Kopi Luwak coffee, which is considered to be the most expensive in the world. The coffee beans are eaten by civet cats and then ex created and collected. Not too sure if I fancy tasting second hand coffee!
Plenty of places en route to take photos, the view from the top offers fantastic views over the lake, the caldera and neighbouring volcano. There is a small information centre at the top with the history of all the eruptions, the last being in 2000.
Lots of stalls selling gifts, coffee shops and toilets.
Well worth a visit
