Mount Batur is an active volcano rising above the beautiful lake of Batur, the mountain is seen as sacred, according to Hindu believes.
Located in Kintamani District, the mountain stands about 1,717 meter above sea level. Stunning views of the lake and volcano attract many nature enthusiasts and photographers from all over the globe.
Climbing the mountain is a popular activity, especially the sunrise-tour. You start climbing around 3 a.m. and reach the top 2 hours later to witness the spectacular view and sunrise like you’ve never seen before!
Most tour guides provide breakfast, cooked by the steam of the active volcano, when you reach the top. The hike is pretty steep and it’s cold up there, but when you see this amazing view you know it’s worth the effort! On your way back visit natural hot springs to relax up after the climbing.
Mount Batur is surely one of Bali’s must-visit destinations and surely once in a lifetime experience!
