Trek up Mt Batur, an active volcano situated among impressive natural scenery. Head to its crater on a guided tour, or travel independently--the walk up isn't particularly difficult, even to fairly inexperienced hikers. Set within the much larger crater of a volcano that erupted thousands of years ago, the site offers views from the top that include a crescent-shaped lake and volcanic scenery hemmed in by high crater walls.

The trek begins with a guide around 3am if u are looking for a sunrise. Carry minimum stuff with you so as not to get heavy. Comfortable shoes and clothes for hike. Some stretches are quiet steep, rocky and muddy. For breakfast you don't have too many options up there. Just a few bread slices and boiled eggs and bananas. Our guide was very good and helpful. He showed us areas which other guides were not showing to their customers. Tipping your guide in the end would be a kind gesture as they are quiet poor. The atmosphere and experience is quiet breathtaking and gives once in a lifetime feeling. Entire trek is fillled with tourists. If you feel you are fit to climb till the top definitely go for it.
Not so hard trek, everybody can make it.! About 2 hours to the top from start point. Bring jackets. Warung is available at the top so you can buy drinks and snacks over there. Better go earlier to find good spot for the sunrise because there will be >300 people on the top for sunrise.
