Mount Batur Hike In Bali: How To Do The Sunrise Trek

The Mount Batur hike in Kintamani , Bali is one of the most popular and enjoyable sunrise trekking experiences you can have in Indonesia.

It’s not very hard to do the Mount Batur Bali trek from any part of the island, and the guided trek takes you up a still active volcano — Gunung Batur — with a summit elevation of more than 1,700 meters.

Mount Batur sunrise trekking is especially popular because you can catch amazing views of the sunrise from the top of the mountain, usually in a sea of orange clouds. Sunset trekking can also be interesting if you don’t like the idea of waking up early.

I’ve done this Bali volcano hike many times over the years, and the Mt Batur trek is always a completely memorable adventure in its own way.

Mount Batur is currently open for hiking as of 2024. Back in May 2023, there was some talk from the former Bali governor about banning tourists from hiking the mountain, but thankfully that hasn’t happened.

In this guide, I’ll explain how you can hike Mount Batur for sunrise or sunset, with or without a guide, and everything else you need to know before you go!

Quick Facts

  • Distance: 3 – 5 kilometers (2-3 miles) return
  • Elevation Gain: 500 meters (1,650 feet)
  • Top Elevation: 1,717 meters (5,633 feet)
  • Difficulty: Moderate
  • Duration: 2 – 4 hours return

Where Is Mount Batur?

The Mount Batur volcano is located in the Kintamani highlands, on the northeast part of Bali island.

It’s about a 2 hour drive to Mount Batur from Canggu, Kuta, Sanur, or Seminyak, and about a 1 hour drive from Ubud.

Or, if you stay a night at a hotel directly in Kintamani, you can walk to the volcano from your hotel! That’s how we did our latest Mount Batur sunrise trek.

About The Gunung Batur Volcano

Mount Batur (also known as ‘Gunung Batur’ in Indonesian) is part of an active volcano that’s believed to have formed in a massive apocalyptic eruption about 25,000 years ago.

At one time (before it blew its top), Batur was apparently more than 3,800 meters (12,500 feet) tall — making it even bigger than Mount Agung , Bali’s current tallest volcano (which is already huge).

Almost two dozen eruptions have happened at Gunung Batur since 1804 when recording first started, and it last erupted in 1999-2000.

That sounds scary, but any signs of impending volcanic activity are constantly monitored by the Indonesian government so Batur is generally very safe to climb.

Since 2015, UNESCO lists the Mount Batur caldera as a global geopark for its fantastic volcanic landscapes.

Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking

• starting the mount batur hike.

Mount Batur sunrise tours start with a very early morning pickup (2 AM-ish) so your guide can drive you all the way to Kintamani for a hike to the top of the volcano in time for sunrise.

The Mount Batur hike is very popular, so you’ll most likely be trekking in the company of dozens (if not hundreds) of other international and local tourists all sharing the same path.

At the top of the Mount Batur view point, you cross the rim of the volcano and then you’re greeted by packs of Balinese monkeys eager to share your sunrise (and your snacks)! Keep a close eye on them.

On our last hike to Mt Batur, one monkey stole our entire snack bag, and by the time we got it back he had looted the Pocari Sweat and drank it in front of us. Nakal monyet .

• How Hard Is The Hike?

The hike up Mount Batur takes about 2 hours (give or take) depending on your fitness level, and it’s steep but not dangerous at all as long as you stay on the path. If you’re feeling unsure about this hike, just DO IT!

Anyone can do the trek, but I wouldn’t take that to mean it’s a complete joke either. The climb up is a decent calf killer, and the walk down is a bit of an ankle buster.

It’s a fair bit of elevation gain. You will be plenty sore after the hike! Plan on a Balinese foot massage afterwards.

If you want a harder volcano hike than Mt. Batur with less crowds, consider doing the Mount Agung hike in the same area. However, the climb up Agung is a much, much tougher hike than Mt. Batur.

Kintamani and Lake Batur

• Mount Batur Hike Distance

The Mount Batur hike distance depends on where you start and end your trekking, but generally it’s about 3-5 kilometers (2-3 miles) roundtrip.

AllTrails (and some travel blogs) are incorrect for this hike when they list it at 9.3 kilometers (5.8 miles). Looking at a Mount Batur map, that’s only the distance if you completely circle both volcano craters, and start from the bottom of the road in Toya Bungkah village.

The real Mount Batur hike distance is quite a bit shorter, so keep that in mind when you see inflated figures like that.  

• Mount Batur Height

The Mount Batur height at its summit is 1,717 meters (5,633 feet). You don’t need to acclimatize to altitude before doing the hike.

It’s a fair change in elevation if you’re coming from sea level in the touristy areas of south Bali, but it’s definitely not enough of a change to cause altitude sickness, so you don’t need to worry about anything of that sort.  

• Mount Batur Elevation Gain

The Mount Batur elevation gain depends on where you start and end your hike, but generally it’s about 500 meters (1,650 feet).

• Mount Batur Weather

The Mount Batur weather is quite a bit cooler than other parts of Bali, although it’s never frigid.

Overnight temperatures can drop below 10 degrees Celsius (50 degrees Fahrenheit), and the wind can make it feel colder than that.

You’ll definitely want to bring a light jacket to wear at the top of the Mount Batur view point, and that way you can stay warm while waiting for the sunrise.

After the Mount Batur sunrise, the weather warms up and you’ll be ready to shed the jacket on your way down.

Speaking of weather, what if clouds or fog roll in and block your view of the sunrise? Unfortunately it happens sometimes, and I’ve seen it myself.

Regardless of how much planning you do, ultimately there is no way to predict the weather on Mount Batur. You just have to give it a shot, and hope for the best.  

• Mount Batur Sunrise

The Mount Batur sunrise is an awesome sight to see. It’s so worthwhile.

On the right you have Lake Batur and the peaks of Gunung Abang, with the Mount Agung volcano just barely visible above them.

Directly behind the sunrise is the Bali Sea, and on a clear day you can even make out the shape of Mount Rinjani on Lombok island way off in the distance!

• Breakfast At Mt Batur

After sunrise at Mount Batur, it’s time for breakfast. Most tour guides include this for free in the trekking packages, and you’re going to be hungry after spending your morning climbing a mountain.

Since Mt Batur is an active volcano, there are small heat vents to be found at the top of the crater, and the tour guides will usually let you cook eggs by sticking them in the heat vents.

It’s yet another fun and unique activity to enjoy on this Bali volcano! I mean really, how often do you get the chance to cook eggs with heat vents from an active volcano?

What To Bring

  • Jacket: Bring an extra layer for the Mount Batur sunrise trek. You’ll shed your jacket right away as you heat up, but then you’ll probably want it again at the top while you sit and wait for the sunrise.
  • Footwear: Regular shoes are fine, but sturdy hiking shoes are better for the Mount Batur hike. You can also do it with hiking sandals, but I wouldn’t wear flip flops. You’ll be walking on slippery gravel and steep inclines or declines at times.
  • Poncho: If you go during the rainy season (especially December to February), you might want to bring a rain jacket just in case.
  • Water: Most Batur tours will give you a small bottle of water for the hike, but if you can bring 1L or 1.5L per person that’s better.
  • Snacks: Again, even though most tours include free breakfast, you’ll probably be wanting energy snacks to go with it.
  • Headlight: Mount Batur sunrise trekking tours will provide cheapo flashlights, but a quality headlight will be even better.
  • Camera: Essential. A small tripod could be handy too since it’ll be dark before the sunrise.

You can hike Batur any time of the year, but the best months are April to November, when there’s less rain and the mountain visibility is better. June through September are especially dry, and that’s when you have the best chance of seeing a spectacular sunrise.

Mount Batur Deaths & Safety

Accidents and deaths are rare at Mount Batur, although a 25 year old Swedish tourist unfortunately fell into the crater and died in 2010, and a 70 year old American fell to his death in 2022.

These are two of the only confirmed Mount Batur deaths to date, even though hundreds of tourists hike the volcano for sunrise every day.

The hiking path is quite safe as long as you stay away from steep edges. The drop-offs are easy to avoid as long as you can see them.

You should always have a light for hiking in the dark (Mt. Batur guides can provide this), and please don’t ever try to take selfies or other pictures near steep cliff edges.

As long as you follow these rules, the Mount Batur hike is very safe and even kids can do it.

Mount Batur Tour Guide / Mafia Requirement

Even though it’s a fairly simple hike that could be done solo, Mount Batur is controlled by a local trekking group (mafia) that doesn’t let anyone climb the volcano without paying for a local guide.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve climbed Mount Everest and you’re the picture of fitness, you’ll still be forced to hire a local guide and pay your dues for the Mount Batur sunrise trek.

People who try to climb the mountain without a guide have reported being verbally abused by locals (“you’re a terrorist”) and even shoved, kicked, or physically threatened. Hopefully the Bali government will step in and put an end to this.

As much as I don’t like rewarding this kind of bad behavior, keep in mind it is motivated by poverty. Kintamani is a very poor area of Bali. There are also a few other benefits to hiring a guide:

  • Transport: Who wants to be driving in a foreign country at 2 AM? Better to pay someone else to do it for you.
  • Navigation: Even though the path is easy to find in the daytime, it’s definitely more tricky in the dark before sunrise.
  • Assistance: Guides will give you a hand on the mountain, and help you snap photos with the sunrise.
  • Supplies: Most tours include some things you’ll need for Mount Batur sunrise trekking, like breakfast, bottled water, flashlights, etc.
  • Peace of Mind: Is $30 or $40 USD really worth getting into a fight with the locals on your holiday?

Mount Batur Without Guide – Directions

If you’re resolved to hike Mount Batur without a tour guide, the best way to attempt it is on the north side of the mountain .

The trail on the north side is more quiet and only seems to get used by people starting directly from Kintamani village (i.e. locals and overnighters) doing the Mount Batur sunrise trek.

This side wasn’t monitored by anyone when we went, but that may change. My best advice is to navigate to Red Lava Campground and then walk up, up, up the slope.

The path to the top of Mt.Batur isn’t too hard to follow without a guide, even in the dark — just follow the elevation. There are dozens of converging trails that all meet at the summit. The only challenge will be finding the start, so give yourself some extra time for that.

Slopes of Mt Batur

Morning views at Mount Batur Bali

Mount Batur Afternoon Trekking

If you’re not really interested in seeing the Mount Batur sunrise, or the early start won’t work for you, then it’s always possible to do morning or afternoon trekking at Mount Batur.

You won’t see the same epic sunrise at the Mount Batur view point, of course, and the other downside is that it may be harder to find other travelers to share a group with you. Plus, fog is more likely to block the views altogether.

Morning and afternoon aren’t popular times to hike this volcano, but that can be a good thing if you’re wanting to avoid the big crowds.  

Mount Batur Sunset Trekking

If you don’t like waking up early for the sunrise, and would rather stay an extra night in Kintamani, then it’s also possible to do sunset trekking at Mount Batur.

The Mount Batur sunset isn’t quite as dramatic as sunrise since you don’t have Gunung Abang in the background, but you’re still bound to get some great views.

Better yet, if you feel like camping, you can do a 2-day Mount Batur trek and witness both the sunrise and the sunset! This is a unique way to get more time on the mountain.

Where To Stay

Nowadays there are lots of great budget friendly Kintamani hotels if you want to stay overnight before your Mount Batur sunrise trek. See below for some recommendations.

The main advantage of staying in Kintamani is that you have easier access to the Mt. Batur volcano so you can wake up later for the hike. That means starting at 4 AM, instead of 1-2 AM if you start from other areas of Bali like Ubud, Kuta, or Sanur.

The other reason to stay in Kintamani is that there are some great things to see besides the volcano . You can soak in the natural hot springs at Lake Batur, visit the traditional villages and temples, etc.

Mount Batur Hot Spring

Since Mount Batur is an active volcano, there is also a hot spring nearby by the name of Toya Devasya.

The facilities are nothing special, but the hot spring has an amazing view of Lake Batur and the surrounding mountains — almost like an infinity pool.

Many Mount Batur tours include this hot spring as part of the itinerary, and it’s a great way to relax after the hike!

Is Mount Batur Worth It?

Now it’s time for the most important question of all — is Mount Batur worth it? Yes, I definitely think so!

Aside from the novelty of hiking on an active volcano, with steaming heat vents and playful monkeys, you also get to witness one of the most amazing sunrise views in Bali, Indonesia. I don’t normally like waking up so early for sunrise, but this one is worth it!

Generally you won’t see flowing red hot lava at Batur, but the entire southwestern slope of the volcano is surrounded by a field of old black lava rock that’s now used for dirt biking tours and other fun activities. Overall, Mount Batur is well worth a visit when you’re in Bali!  

Is Mount Batur Open / Closed?

Yes, Mount Batur is currently open to tourists and hikers as of 2024! There are no impending plans to close it. I’ll update this travel guide if anything changes.

Back in May 2023, the former governor of Bali threatened to close all of the island’s 22 mountains to hikers because of one or two tourists misbehaving. Thankfully there was a lot of pushback on this idea, and so far no new law has been issued.

The mountain is rarely closed to the public, and that would generally only happen temporarily if there’s some kind of unusual volcanic activity or other safety concerns. Right now it’s still open.

Happy travels!

Do you have any recommendations for the best shoes (for women) for this? I’m coming to Bali in early September from America & im trying to pack light. Would all purpose “hiking sandals” (from Keen, Merrell, or Teva – for example) be acceptable?

' src=

Hi Mick! Hiking boots with ankle support would be best, but you could do it in hiking sandals if you’re needing to save space in your bag. It’s not a very long hike, but the gravel can be slippery, especially on the way back down, so you’ll want something with a bit of grip. As long as you watch your footing, I think that would be fine.

' src=

I’m looking to travel to Bali in the next month, and have come across a few sites and posts that say the tourist bans have now become official. Any truth to that? I haven’t been able to find any legitimate /government-backed articles about it, but the rumors have definitely got me feeling concerned. Hiking Mt. Batur is one of the highlights for me.

Hi Bree. Currently Mount Batur is still open for hiking, so nothing has changed yet. Personally I think it’s very unlikely there will be any ban, but I’ll be monitoring the situation closely and I’ll update this article if anything changes.

  • Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking

mount batur volcano tour

Your adventure starts with a briefing at Bali Sunrise Villas , which is located at the foot of the mountain at 1,000 metres above sea level. After a quick pick-me-up of coffee and tea at the starting point, we’ll make our way up Mount Batur in the cool pre-dawn air under a blanket of stars.

The trek takes about one to two hours to reach the peak at 1,717 metres above sea level. Once you arrive at the highest point, it really feels as though you are on top of the world, as you can see the majestic peak of neighbouring Mount Abang hovering above the clouds, the distant cone of Mount Agung on the horizon, and the caldera lake spread out below.

At the top of the mountain we’ll soak up the beauty of the sunrise and refuel with a light breakfast of fruit and eggs boiled in volcanic steam. There will be plenty of time to relax and take photos of the sunrise and incredible scenery.

Then it’s off to explore the three younger craters and the most recent lava flows. As we make our way down we’ll take in the amazing volcanic landscape and might even come across a troop of mountain monkeys playing on the rocks. Finally we will arrive back at the Bali Sunrise Villas & Restaurant, where a driver will be waiting.

  • Craving privacy and a tailored experience ? Book a private tour or trek . Enjoy the comfort of a dedicated guide and vehicle, perfect for families, solo travelers, or those who want to set the pace. Budget is a bigger factor? Shared transfers offer a cost-effective option.

It’s ideal if you want to enjoy the scenery without the exertion or have physical limitations.
  • Some Mount Batur tours include a soak in nearby natural hot springs — perfect for post-adventure relaxation. However, not all tours have this. Check your tour itinerary before booking if hot springs is a priority. 
  • Rest assured, a delicious breakfast is included in all our Mount Batur tours . Savor a satisfying meal after your climb to replenish your energy.

A couple trekking around Mount Batur

Mount Batur is a relatively easy climb, but safety should always be your top priority. Here are some key safety tips to remember:

  • Trek with a guide: Booking a guided tour is the smartest choice. Experienced guides are certified in mountain safety and will be with you every step of the way, offering support, navigation, and valuable insights throughout your ascent.
  • Stay weather-wise: Check the local weather forecast before you embark on your climb. While rain can add a touch of adventure, it can also make the path slippery and more challenging. Lightning is a serious hazard during thunderstorms, so be prepared to postpone your climb if necessary.
  • Sturdy footwear is essential: Proper footwear is crucial for a safe and enjoyable trek. Opt for sturdy hiking boots with good traction to navigate the loose volcanic terrain. Avoid sandals, flip-flops, or even normal boots that offer no ankle support and can be dangerous on uneven surfaces.
  • Don’t forget Mount Batur is active: Remember, Mount Batur is an active volcano. While the last major eruption occurred in 2000, it's always wise to be aware of volcanic activity and follow any safety instructions provided by your guide or local authorities.

  • Dress for adventure: Layer up! Temperatures can be cool at the summit, especially early in the morning. Wear comfortable, breathable clothing that you can easily adjust as you climb. Long pants are recommended to protect your legs from scrapes and insect bites. 
  • Pack smart: Bring a backpack to carry essentials like a headlamp (a flashlight for the pre-dawn climb may be included depending on your choice of tour), water, snacks, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a hat. Don't forget a camera to capture the breathtaking views!
  • Be prepared for all weather: A light rain jacket is a good idea, especially during the rainy season. Pack a small bag to keep your belongings dry if needed.
  • Physical fitness: While the climb is manageable for most people in decent physical condition, it's still a physical activity. Be prepared for some exertion, especially on the way up. It’s better to warm up beforehand. 
  • Stay hydrated: Dehydration can occur quickly at altitude, so be sure to drink plenty of water throughout your climb.
  • Embrace the early start: Sunrise tours typically begin very early in the morning (around 1 am to 3 am). Get a good night's sleep beforehand and be prepared for a pre-dawn wake-up call.
  • Consider a walking stick: A walking stick can provide added stability and support, especially on the descent.

Mount Batur at Sunrise

  • Height: 1,717 meters (5,633 feet)
  • Volcanic activity: Active volcano, last major eruption in 2000
  • Outer caldera: This behemoth is roughly 29,300 years old and a staggering 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) in diameter. Imagine fitting over 14 Central Parks inside!
  • Inner caldera: Formed around 20,150 years ago, this caldera measures 7.5 kilometers (4.7 miles) wide
  • Known for: Sunrise views, landscapes, and Lake Batur
  • Hiking trail: 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) long to the summit
  • Ascent time: 2 hours (approx)
  • Descent: 1.5 to 2 hours (approx)
  • Unique ecosystem: The volcanic soil may seem like a barren wasteland, but it's surprisingly fertile due to the presence of mineral-rich ash.
  • Cultural fact: It's believed to be the dwelling place of Batara Batur, a powerful spirit associated with creation and harmony.

Choose between sunrise or sunset tours for the best views. Opt for a trek or jeep tour depending on your fitness level. Private tours offer a personalized experience, while shared tours allow you to meet fellow adventurers and are more pocket-friendly. All tours include round-trip transfers , expert English-speaking guides , and a delicious breakfast to fuel your adventure. You can also opt to visit natural hot springs.

If you're looking for a challenge , are moderately fit , and want to reach the peak on foot, then the trek is the way to go. It offers a more hands-on experience with stunning viewpoints along the way. If you prefer a relaxed climb , are traveling with kids , or have physical limitations , a jeep tour is a perfect option. You'll get equally incredible views from accessible vantage points without the exertion of a full trek.

Apart from the gorgeous views, consider your travel style. If you opt for a sunrise tour, it allows you to be back in town by the afternoon and enjoy the rest of your day in Bali. If you have other things you’d like to see or want a late start, spend your day as you please before heading over to Mount Batur for a sunset tour.

Achievable for most with decent fitness, the climb to Mount Batur's peak is moderate.  The trek’s about 6km uphill, with an elevation reaching 1717m. The early pre-dawn start for sunrise tours can be a challenge, but manageable with a guide and tools (included in your tour).  Consider a jeep tour for a relaxed ascent, especially if you're traveling with family or have physical limitations.

The views from the summit of Mount Batur are incredible. From the top, you'll see the Batur caldera floor with its black lava flows, green vegetation, and Lake Batur, a turquoise lake. On clear days, you can even see Mount Agung, Bali's highest peak, on the horizon.

The dry season (April to October) offers the best chance of clear skies for sunrise views. Peak dry months (June to August) are the most consistent, while shoulder months (September & October) can be a good compromise.

It's possible to climb Mount Batur in the rain, but it definitely affects the difficulty and enjoyment of the trek. The loose volcanic gravel can become more slippery and muddy, making the footing less stable. Clouds and rain might also reduce visibility. If you do plan to trek in the rain, invest in weather-proof clothes, hiking boots, and a walking stick for better traction.

The entire Mount Batur experience, including transportation, trek, and breakfast, takes around 3 to 4 hours. The ascent itself takes 1.5 to 2 hours.

Mount Batur's trek can be challenging if you have mobility limitations. Consider a jeep tour instead and get to see the best volcanic views in Indonesia without the hassle of climbing!

Yes, all our Mount Batur tours include a breakfast enjoyed at the peak or upon descent.

Opt for a jeep tour instead of a trek if you have mobility limitations. Private jeep tours offer a comfortable and personalized experience.

Keep a rain-proof windcheater handy. Temperatures at the summit average between 10-15°C, especially at sunrise, especially during sunrise hours. Dress in breathable clothing . Wear h iking boots and bring a backpack for essentials. It's better to be slightly cool during the climb and have the option to layer up at the summit than to be uncomfortably cold at the top. You can always remove layers as needed during the trek.

How to Visit Mount Batur in Bali - An Active Volcano

Mount Batur is an active and beautiful volcano , 1,717 meters (5,633 feet) high, that sits next to the biggest lake in Bali . The ready access and close proximity to Ubud and Denpasar has made it a tourist highlight.

There is road access and several easy and medium difficulty trails to hike to the top . Depending on the trail, the hiking can be a little rugged, but it is doable even for people not used to hiking if they are in good shape.

There is a surprising long list of things to do at and immediately around Mount Batur because it sits inside the caldera of a very big volcano.

  • Is It Safe to Visit
  • What to See and Do
  • Recommended Hiking Routes
  • Best Time to Go
  • Pack Before Visiting

1. Is It Safe to Visit the Mount Batur?

The rim of the volcano has steam rising from it. It last erupted in 2000. Geologists think they can predict when it will erupt, so they have declared that hiking is safe. It has erupted periodically six times in the last century.

Visitors are not supposed to hike on the Mount Batur independently. You must be accompanied by a guide

Contact us to arrange a guide as well as the transportation (and everything else for a Bali tour )

2. What to See and Do on Mount Batur?

1) see the scenery and the volcano rim.

From lookout points near Mount Batur:

Most visitors who come to the area just want to see the volcano and caldera scenery from the rim of the outer volcano. People ride to observation points where the tourists congregate.

On a clear day, the view of the night sky and the distant scenery is so clear that everything seems near. On cloudy and foggy days, you might not be able to see anything. So be aware of the weather when you are preparing to go there, and maybe build in some flexibility in your itinerary to allow you to visit in clear weather. ( Best and Worst Times to Visit Bali & When is the Rainy Season )

Two excellent observation spots are on Mount Penulisan and at Penelokan Village. Mount Penulisan is one the two high mountains near Mount Batur, and at the top there is a Hindu Temple. You can see the north coast from there.

From the top of Mount Batur:

You can look down and see the huge caldera about you, Lake Batur, and the mountains of the outer volcano. The scenery is amazing, and it is especially beautiful at sunrise and sunset.

2) See the beautiful lake

Lake Batur is 7 km (4 miles) long, 2.5 km (1.5 miles) wide, and 60 meters (200 ft) deep.

At the large lake, you could fish and ride a boat, but swimming is not allowed because the people there drink the water.

Some guides also provide for tent camping on Mount Batur. This usually means that people hike up in the afternoon, have dinner, stay in a tent overnight, and enjoy the sunrise and have breakfast.

You could also tent camp in the caldera area.

4) Cook on Mount Batur

This may surprise you, but the mountain is actually hot! Near the crest, steam comes out of vents in some places, and guides often bring things like fish from the lake, eggs, veggies, bananas, yams, and other foods to have a unique meal.

People can dig into the ground, place the food to cook for a couple of hours, and brew tea, coffee, and native chocolate drinks.

5) Enjoy a hot spring

In the large caldera area, there are numerous hot springs. Your guide could take you to favorite ones, or you could check into a spa. There are many such springs in Kintamani.

3. How to Get to Mount Batur?

Mount Batur is easily accessible, within about 2 hours from most of the main tourist areas of Bali.

  • From beach areas : The most popular beach areas of Uluwatu, Seminyak, Kuta, Nusa Dua, Jimbaran, and Canggu, are about 90 minutes away from the base of Batur.
  • From Denpasar and Denpasar Airport : About 90 minutes or less.
  • From Ubud : The drive takes an hour or less.

4. Recommended Hiking Routes on Mount Batur

There are several routes that guides use to take hikers to the top of Mount Batur volcano.

1) Hike from Kintamani Village: Beginners and People Not in Shape

For a short and easy route, from Kintamani Village, you can be driven up to near the top of the mountain. From there, you need to walk a bit. This is the most popular and easiest walking route.

2) Start Near the Lake at Purajati: More Strenuous Longer Routes

Hiking on this route is an adventure in itself because it is strenuous, slightly dangerous, interesting, and very scenic. But a beginner hiker who's in shape can do it. Much of the trail is on volcanic ash.

The walk on the trail takes about 2 hours including breaks. In the early mornings, people use flashlights and headlamps.

It would be dangerous to be on the trail if it rains or a storm picks up. But the guides are very careful about checking the weather to avoid this happening.

Contact us to arrange an expert local guide for you, and depending on what you want to do (stay overnight, have a fresh meal cooked on top, etc.), your guide would provide the equipment, food, and drink.

5. When is The Best Time to Go to Mount Batur?

If you are planning a trip to Mount Batur, be aware of Bali's seasons. The rains and storms of the rainy season get heavy about the month of October and continue until about April. Sometimes, the rain and fog are so dense, you cannot see any scenery, and during a heavy downpour, you would probably not want to be hiking.

August is the best hiking month : The best time to hike is the May–September dry season. The best month is probably August since it's the driest month when Bali only gets about 4 days of rain on average with a low average rainfall of about 3 cm (1 inch). It is also the coolest month of the year, though still 23–30°C (73–86°F) on average at sea level, which makes trekking easier if you go up when the sun is shining. There is no shade on the slopes.

Tourist crowds : August and July are the two busiest months for international tourism. So, if you go in the summer, be aware there probably will be others hiking up the trails with you. There is a shack on top where you can buy refreshments for a couple of dollars. It affords some protection from the weather too. These are also the busiest months for tourism, when most tourists like to hike up.

6. What to Pack Before Visiting the Mount Batur?

Clothing for warmth : It's about 10°C (18°F) cooler on the top of Batur compared to sea level. Take some warmer clothing with you especially if you hike before dawn.

Clothing for hiking : Bring good hiking shoes, long trousers, socks, a sweater, a wind jacket, and an extra T-shirt. Don't forget to also pack a flashlight, sunscreen, water, and some snacks.

6 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE HIKING MOUNT BATUR

This post may contain affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. We may receive a small commission when you make a purchase using our link.

Mount Batur is situated in the Bangli region on the island of Bali, Indonesia. For many years tourists have been hiking up Mount Batur (a volcano in Bali) to watch the sunrise over nearby volcanoes Mount Agung and Mount Agung, and it’s not hard to see why!

If you can manage to wake up early for the drive to the mountain, you will be treated to an adventurous hike in the dark with an amazing sunrise awaiting you at the summit. Just last week, I hiked the volcano for the first time and didn’t really know what to expect.

In this article I share 6 things you need to know before you hike Mount Batur, including what to bring and how to prepare.

1) How Hard Is The Hike Up The Mount Batur Volcano In Bali?

First things first, how hard is the hike? For most that will be the most important question that needs answering. If you are normally active and have a decent level of cardio, you shouldn’t find the hike to be too difficult.

You will read on most forums, travel advice channels and blogs that it’s easy and you can practically run up it! Well, that’s not entirely true.

The hike is about two hours (for most, quicker if you need fewer breaks) and remember you are summiting a volcano which is 1,717 meters, or 5,633 feet, above sea level.

For me personally, I found the hike pretty difficult and not the easy stroll as some described it. To be fair, I don’t do too much cardio and if I am at the gym it’s most likely for a leisurely Pilates class! 

So when it comes to understanding how difficult the hike will be, honestly you have to look to your own personal fitness level and not someone else’s. You know your own body, and will be able to tell pretty early on if you are going to find the hike hard.

You definitely do not need to be training beforehand (it’s a 2-hour hike, not a marathon!), and as long as you take breaks when you need them I think anyone can get to the top.

2) What To Wear To Hike The Volcano

The temperature and climate will be different from one night to the next and also changes throughout the hike. I would recommend wearing comfortable leggings or shorts, something you would typically wear to work out.

By far the most important thing to wear is proper trainers or hiking shoes! I watched many girls in very silly stylish boots slipping as they tried to climb the last part of the hike where the rocks and gravel are loose.

Bring a sweater or hoodie for the cooler moments in the hike, probably at the beginning and at the summit. Throughout the hike itself you will probably remove these outer layers.

I also suggest bringing a waterproof jacket , especially if you are hiking in the wet season or near to it as you may get rained on!

3) What To Bring To Mount Batur

Carry a small rucksack and bring along your waterproof gear, extra water and some snacks. I also highly recommend buying a headlamp beforehand.

You are given a flashlight by your guide, but having a small headlamp made the hike much easier, especially towards the end to have your hands free when climbing up the rocky path.

Your guide will likely have a couple of small waters for you, but I think it’s best to have extra and bring your own too. At the summit your guide will have some snacks, probably some simple boiled eggs.

If you anticipate being hungry, bring along some sandwiches or biscuits. We brought these with us, but in the end waited to eat until we stopped on the return drive back to Seminyak .

4) Camera Equipment

Bringing cameras is essential! I currently use a Nikon D850 and a Sigma Art Lens , but any quality DSLR will work to capture the sunrise.

Sunrise at the peak of Mount Batur is truly stunning so make sure to bring along your cameras, Gopros, phones or whatever your preference is for photography.

Unless you are a professional, I would suggest leaving the tripod at home. Whilst you could get an awesome time-lapse shot, it’s quite busy at the peak and carrying it up the mountain would be a pain. 

If you really want a tripod, I would recommend a smaller flexible tripod and not a large one. But I urge you to put down the cameras and enjoy the moment as the sun rises after snapping a few shots!

5) Who To Hike With & Tours

We booked our hike with a local company called Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking for about Rp 800,000 (~$60) per person. This includes everything, including pickup and drop off from Seminyak, local guide up the mountain, water, flashlights, simple breakfast at the top, and lunch at a nearby restaurant after the hike.

Usually, bookings take place over WhatsApp for many activities in Bali, so don’t find it unusual if this is how the booking is confirmed. We received a message confirming pickup at 1:45am the night before and the driver was right on time.

We decided to take a private hike of just my boyfriend (update: now husband!) Ryan and I with a guide. There are group tours, but the pricing is very similar and it’s very nice to have a private guide so you can go at your own pace up the volcano.

Mount Batur Guided Tours 

If you prefer to go with a tour then there are plenty to choose from, some are just the sunrise tours and others include fun extras like a visit to natural hot springs after or stops at waterfalls. Here are some of the top-rated tours to choose from:

  • Mount Batur Sunrise Trek with A Female Guide
  • Mt. Batur: 2 Day Camping Trip, Summit Hike, and Hot Springs
  • Mt. Batur Sunrise Hike with 1-Night Stay in Kintamani
  • Mt. Batur Black Lava Cycling Tour w/ Natural Hot Spring
  • 2-Day Sunset and Sunrise Camping at Mt. Batur

  • Mount Batur Sunrise Jeep Adventure with Jungle Swing
  • Mount Batur: Private Sunrise Jeep Tour & Natural Hot Spring
  • Mount Batur Sunrise Trek With Guide and Breakfast
  • Mount Batur Sunrise Hike and Natural Hot Spring

6) Schedule

The time you get picked up will depend on where you are staying on the island.

From Seminyak , you will be picked up around 1.45am, Ubud 2.15am and other locations further south will be earlier. The driver will pick you up at your chosen location and the drive will take around 2 hours (from Seminyak). Upon arrival, your hiking guide will meet you in the car park and it’s time to get started.

As I previously mentioned, you will hike somewhere between 1.5 – 2 hours depending on your own speed and that of the group you are hiking with. You will reach the peak at around 5.30am and spend around an hour or more just taking in the sunrise.

Then you can keep going up to wander around the crater of the volcano, see some monkeys playing at the temple on top of the peak and find some areas where hot smoke is creeping out of the volcano. You can spend around another hour or so wandering around before you begin your descent back down.

I expected the descent to be much less time than the way up, but in fact it still took around 2 hours, as we scrambled down the volcano. Again, time for each part of the trip will depend on your pace, and how long you stop for pictures, etc!

Finally, on the drive home your driver will stop somewhere for you to have a light breakfast and some tea and coffee before the drive back to your hotel or villa.

Se question as the one before..is guide required?

June 19, 2019 at 1:04 am

I strongly recommend going with a guide or tour company for safety and to support the local economy. The hike begins before sunrise in the dark so it would be easy to get lost. The guide can also take you different routes depending on your fitness level and show you some great spots at the top you might not otherwise find on your own. Have fun, it’s one of my favorite activities in Bali!

August 15, 2019 at 3:53 am

Hi there, thanks for the article. I am wondering if you have any insight on how busy the trek was and about the motorbikes that go up and down. Were these bad and did this bother you at all?

August 15, 2019 at 4:32 am

The hike was reasonably busy when we did it but it was not too bad. We were able to walk by ourselves or with another small group during the majority of the hike because everyone is spread out and goes up the mountain at different speeds. It does get fairly crowded at the top though. There were only 2-3 motorbikes that went past us during the entire hike so this didn’t bother us at all. Thanks for reading!

October 9, 2019 at 9:59 am

Hi, I am going in November first week…I am worried if it rains in Bali..what do you suggest that shall I think of climbing Mt batur or not..will it be risky considering rain?

Diane S says

January 20, 2020 at 2:40 pm

Great writeup! My husband and I just climbed Mt Batur yesterday, and you do NOT need to hire a guide. We stayed in the local town, and did the hike ourselves, with the help of the well-marked maps.me.

Saying that – we knew the sunrise hikes tend to be crowded, so we decided to start at 7:30 am. We were at the top by 10 am, and had it all to ourselves.

I’m all for supporting the local economy- we just choose to do that in other ways (staying in a local guest house, eating meals locally, etc).

For someone asking about the rainy season – this is Jan 2020, meant to be the rainy season – but it happens to be an extra dry year (due to climate change). The whole day we hiked was clear and sunny, with a bit of drizzle in the evening – one advantage of staying locally: we soaked in the local hot springs after – lovely!

Kintamani Coffee Plantations

The Kintamani region in Bali is less known for its unique Arabica coffee and more known for its lavishing green nature, high volcanos and numerous orange trees.

However, Kintamani coffee is a speciality coffee with a smooth body and characteristic taste made by numerous small family farmers who carefully pick the coffee cherries one-by-one from their decades old coffee trees.

Kintamani is the primary coffee growing region and Robusta coffee still accounts for the major part of the production in Bali, however Arabica is gaining new ground fast.

kintamani bali coffee plantations

Arabica has a stronger body and less acid than Robusta. It has also half the caffeine which means it is a perfect afternoon or evening coffee moment to stay focused, calm and energised.

The speciality coffee scene has grown fast the last few years in Bali where more and more cafe’s invest in educating Barista’s in order to make beautiful coffee but also to understand their beans.

Nowadays Coffee plantations become one the most popular tourist attractions in Bali.

Bali coffee is as unique as its origin place, and Kintamani coffee has clean, light and distinctive flavor. The combination between high humidity, the 900-1550 meters of altitude and long dry months has created unique flavor for this coffee.

Here are things you can find when you taste a cup of Kintamani coffee, especially the Arabica variant.

Coffee from Kintamani area has medium to high acidity, and it is very obvious especially if you are used to milder or instant coffee, which often makes people with low caffeine tolerance avoid Balinese coffee. Kintamani coffee also has intense characteristic, so you can expect extra punch from each sip.

nother special characteristic of Kintamani coffee, despite its high acidity, is the somewhat light flavor and low-key brightness. You can immediately taste it in your mouth; despite the kick and high acidity, the coffee tasted somewhat light, without any gritty taste or much bitterness.

This combination makes Kintamani coffee somewhat “exotic,” and great if you love clean palate after each sip, despite the coffee’s high acidity and intensity.

Kintamani coffee has the combination between medium body and bright, fruity aroma. This coffee tends to display more citrus-y aroma, such as lemon or grapefruit, albeit it can be very faint.

Unlike Java coffee, which usually has a little spicy note, Kintamani coffee is definitely fruity and bright (a little similar to Hawaiian Kona). Meanwhile, the medium body coats the inside of your mouth nicely, without leaving any gritty or bitter aftertaste.

Basically, Kintamani coffee is great for those who enjoy light but clean flavor, bright acidity, and fruity notes in their coffee.

Despite its lightness, remember that Bali coffee is generally punchy and quite strong, and not suitable for those who have low caffeine tolerance or cannot handle strong coffee.

If you want to blend coffee, you can use Kintamani as the “aromatic” part of the blend, and use heavier coffee with thicker body as the base, such as Mandheling coffee or Gayo coffee.

The Island of Bali has the right geography and climate to produce unique variants of coffee. Kintamani coffee is light, bright, punchy, and will wake you up with its aromatic fruity flavor and notes.
