The volcano is a spectacular view and worth visiting. The children enjoyed seeing a real volcano! The view points, however, are placed along a very busy street with dangerous traffic, lots of people and dirty tourist restaurants. We escaped the busy street and went down to the lake instead, a 5-10 min drive, and that was absolutely lovely. Beautiful place... More

My partner and I set off with Gada(pronounce G'Day) and Jero in time to arrive for sunset. Jero was carrying everything we needed for our stay on the mountain top, apart from our personal packs, on his back. We did the sunset hike, which is quite steep in places, but not too long. We are both 58, fairly fit and... More

We climbed mount Batur with batur trekking and an amazing guide called Raida. The ascent took around 2.5 hours (as I am not very fit and had to take quite a few brief stops. Lots of people were trekking up at the same time. We started the trek at 3.30am and reached the top for a beautiful sunrise over mount... More

Not sure if I would go again. After an hours drive at night time, you climb up with torches at 4.30 am. Reach up at 6 for sunrise. The walk back is 2 hours and boring , so not sure if I would want to to it again. The sunrise is also ok as I have seen better ones elsewhere.... More

Mount Batur is much hyped but there's nothing much there. After a turmoil of hard trekking is a good view. I personally didn't find it apt for a family trip.

It might be a nice mountain with a good view. Also you will meet a lot of monkeys on the top. but still... it wasn't fun. There were just way to many people climbing up the hill on the narrow path which caused a traffic jam. At the night-time u could see a long queue of lights up the mountain.... More
