The sunrise hike was unlike any hike I’ve done before. If you can get past the early wake up call, you will not regret spending the early morning hours climbing Mt. Batur. Our guide, Leon, was very attentive to our group and took breaks as we needed them during the climb. He was knowledgeable about the area and was also happy to answer any other general questions about Bali.
My wife and I booked the 4WD tour for the Mt Batur sunrise. We were picked up by Putu Kupit at exactly the time committed – 3 am from Seminyak. We arrived at the starting point and the 4WD jeeps arrived almost immediately. It’s 2 people per jeep. And please take warm clothing, jackets and ear muffs as it does get really chilly, especially due to the breeze during the drive.
Edy and Gray were incredible and extremely accommodating! The entire trip was very scenic (especially the 4×4 drive at 3-4am, where you can see the stars above). When it got cold, Grey built us a nice small campfire to keep us warm on the mountain. The views were all gorgeous, if you’re looking for a romantic scenic and beautiful background itinerary – this is perfect! The lake was definitely our favourite. The hotspring was a great way to sit back and relax.
Did the early morning climb with Nova who was a great guide. Also had another great guide Mira for the rest of the trip going around the local area. Got a breakfast at the top too.
We took an amazing guided tour with Putu Kupit on a 4WD around the slopes of Mt. Batur across the scenic black lava. We also enjoyed a relaxing time at the natural hot spring water for then heading for lunch atop a restaurant with a great view of Mt Batur! Our great tour guide also took us to have a coffee experience with Lawak coffee and some local chocolate at Oka. Putu Kupit proved to be very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. highly recommend this tour!
