Just a 5-hour flight from Hong Kong is the opportunity to embark on Bali’s most popular trekking experience on Mount Batur, 1717 meters above sea level! The hike to the summit of this volcano ventures through jungle and dirt paths to catch the sun rising above the clouds and is a perfect addition to a 3-7 day trip to Bali.
Seasons optimal for this hike depend on whether you can withstand the crowds or rain. The most popular times to visit are from June to September, though if you don’t mind the chance of rain, October to November and April to May are less busy.
What to expect?
There is a sunset trek option for a more family-friendly alternative if waking up at midnight is an issue. If the hike is a concern, there is also a jeep tour instead.
Trek packages often offer a soak in the nearby hot springs upon descent, followed by a tour of a coffee plantation featuring the world’s most expensive coffee made by Luwaks. If you are looking for tour guides and packages, check out Klook, Trip Advisor, or Get Your Guide.
