Description

Head out on a hike to discover Mount Batur and its lake, as well as see an amazing sunrise!

In the middle of the night, you will be picked up at your hotel at around 2am, and head in the direction of Mount Batur. At 1,717 meters (5,633 ft.) high, this active volcano is considered by Hindus to be a sacred mountain. After two hours of hiking, you will arrive at the summit in time to admire the sunrise, as well as enjoy a breakfast of cooked bananas and eggs. 

On the hike back down, you will pass through small forests which lead right to the volcano’s lake. You will cross the lake by boat to reach Toya Devasya, giving you a stunning view of lake Batur. Make the most of the visit by relaxing your muscles in the hot springs. 

Finally you will visit a coffee plantation, where visitors can learn about different varieties and taste a cup of famous kopi luwak, or civet coffee! 

After a morning spent on Mount Batur, you will be brought back to your accommodations around noon.

  • Avant toute chose notre guide Nioman a été extraordinaire. D'une extrême patience il a aidé (pour ne pas dire porté) mon.épouse a monter lorsqu'elle était en difficulté. Super expérience, la vue en haut est juste incroyable et le guide nous explique l'histoire du volcan. Le.petit déjeuner est copieux et le café plus que bienvenu. Les 2 heures de trek sont quand même éprouvante pour un niveau note facile/moyen il na pas été simple loin de la. Enfin les source deau chaude tombent à pic après tant d'efforts 👍👍👍👍.

  • L’ascension du mont Batur se fait de nuit avec des lampes de poche, c’est assez rapide mais cela dépend de la forme physique de chacun. Notre guide prenait soin de nous montrer le chemin et de savoir si nous allions bien régulièrement pendant le trek, il a vraiment été adorable ! Une fois en haut le spectacle est magique. Le soleil se lève petit à petit et le ciel est coloré, jaune, rose c’est magnifique ! Il fait froid en haut donc il faut prévoir des vêtements assez chauds, mais le petit déjeuner aide à se réchauffer. La descente se fait facilement et ensuite le guide nous emmène aux sources d’eaux chaudes. Il y a plusieurs bassins, de la musique, la vue sur le lac, c’est top pour se relaxer après le trek !

  • Le chauffeur comme le guide étaient supers! Des gens géniaux, souriant et qui n'hésitent pas à partager avec les touristes que nous sommes. Les activités étaient supers même si la dégustation de café faisait un peu travail à la chaîne. Je recommande!
