Me and my girlfriend spent many evenings researching Mount Batur and Mount Agung. Due to Mount Agung’s fairly recent activity this was quickly crossed off our list. The more we researched Mount Batur the more we read stories of the so called ‘mountain mafia’ that...More

A lot of upslope walking. Remember to bring a walking stick. It easier with a walking stick. 2-3 hrs to reach to the top. Nice view. Can see mount Agung from and mount Butur from different side.

When you have Mt Batur, BAtur lake and the Kintamani highlands all in one area, Mt Abang which in itself is magnificent is overlooked.

Mount Abang is the neighbour of Mount Batur. If you're in Kintamani, just follow the road across Geopark Museum. For local we paid IDR15.000,- but for tourist IDR210.000,- (I'm sure it can be negotiated). We started climbing at 2am and reach the top at 6am....More
