Mount Batur Sunrise Trek
“We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another day, and no sunrise finds us where sunset left us.”
– Khalil Gibran
A sunrise atop Mount Batur is one of the most magical experiences that you can have. It is a time that you can reflect on just how small we are in this universe that we live in.
Taking a sunrise trek to Mount Batur is an activity that needs to go on your Must do list while you are in Bali.
This exciting adventure begins with an early pickup from your hotel. Yes, we know its early we will be with you remember. The drive to the trailhead will be about an hour and a half, so you can bring your blanket and have a nap on the way.
Or you can enjoy a hot coffee and chat to your guide enroute to this towering volcano, he will be excited to have you along and happy to share some words.
When you arrive at the trail head there will be short safety briefing and then you will start the trek to the peak of the volcano.
Bring your camera and take some video of your trek up and include some footage at the top of the mountain. This will make some great footage for your YouTube or Instagram feed, but more than that a record of such an exciting moment in your life. While you watch the sunrise reveal the views of Mount Batur you can enjoy a coffee and a basic hiker’s breakfast cooked atop the mountain.
Mount Batur sits inside a super volcano. At about 1700 metres above sea level, Batur is still an active volcano. For lots more details and information about Batur please check our Mount Batur guide here.
After collecting some more great memories courtesy of the Island of Gods you will start your descent to the Toye Bungkah hot spring.
These hot springs are a lovely way to relieve your tired muscles before returning to the car for the trip back home.
The meaning of Toya Bungkah is Water (Toya) and Boulder (Bungkah), the water rises from an aquifer that is around 635 meters below the earth’s crust. It believed to be around 50 degrees Celsius at its peak. Don’t worry though when the water reaches the pool, it’s going to be around 37-degree Celsius, perfect temperature for an early morning bath.
You have an option to stop at the coffee house on the way back and taste some of the huge variety of local coffee, this is included free of charge in the trek.
Alternatively, you may want to upgrade your package and have our guide drop you to one of our partner spas where you will enjoy a massage with special treatment reserved for our guests.
