Went along with my sister and mother who's slightly older and the guide was such a gent he helped her Hike to the very summit and back down so I had nothing to worry about. Would recommend to anyone for sure
Naris and Nadi were great guides for the morning hike up Mt Batur! They were such entertaining conversationalists in English they had us laughing the whole trek! Be prepared to get dusty from the volcanic dirt path. The driver was very prompt at picking us up on time at our hotel. Side Note: this company utilizes WhatsApp to call/text when coordinating drop off/pick up, so be sure to download the app before you leave your country of origin. Would highly recommend this experience, particularly with these two guides!
We absolutely loved this experience from beginning to end! Our driver picked us up from our homestay in Ubud around 2:30 a.m. and drove us about an hour to the spot you start the hike. It's an early wake-up call, but you can sleep on the way for sure. I'd also recommend eating breakfast on your way there. You get it at the top of the mountain too, but that's several hours later. We then met out hike guide, and he was absolutely wonderful as well. The hike is very challenging, but definitely doable. We are in decent shape, but certainly not fitness experts. We got a great workout, and we were very happy to have the couple hour break at the top of mountain. I'd definitely recommend good running or hiking shoes, and a sweatshirt/jacket you can take off. It's colder at the top, but you'll be hot during the hike. The bugs weren't bad at all. Watching the sunrise was incredible, and the guides are so much fun! They were so great about taking all sorts of awesome pictures that we never would have thought of. Getting back down is just as much of an adventure. It's pretty challenging, and you should take your time or you'll slip and fall a lot. The coffee plantation tour at Satria after was so worth it, too! We loved having that after the early morning. Our driver was Nengah. We would HIGHLY recommend him! He was such a delight and drove us to several other stops after the coffee plantation. You won't regret this adventure at all! One of, if not, our favorite parts of this amazing vacation!
I was in a group tour, there were five persons in our group. Our driver Mr. Nengah is polite and friendly, he reached my hotel on time at 1 am. On the way he explained and advice good tips about the hiking conditions.
Everyone has different stamina but our guide Kadek is young and energetic, he is very thoughtful and helped me through out in this hiking trip. Will definitely go for this hiking tour next time, it was memorable and scenic.
What an amazing experience!! Our driver picked us up at 1:30am an hour earlier than expected, so make sure to verify the time prior via whatsapp. The ride up there wasn't too long and our group mostly slept. Once you get to the foot of the mountain you meet your two guides - we had Kadek and Wayan and they were fun and spoke great English and kept our spirit up when the hike got a bit rough. Speaking of which, it is NOT an easy hike. I'd sad medium to high level. This is because it is very hard to see they provide flashlights and the ground isn't very set as its a mix of sand and rocks. Once you make it up to the top there are several breaks along the way the view is absolutely to die for and it make it all worth it plus you get a warm breakfast and there is warm tea and coffee to great you : I would HIGHLY recommend this hike!!
Incredible experience with a wonderful guide!! Must do. Everything was fantastic and Naris our guide was so energetic and encouraging and set us up with the best spot to watch the sunrise over the lake and volcanoes. Excellent English and conversation. The coffee plantation stop was a bit uninformative and more of a pressure sales tactic but still worth the stop. Only caution, this is more than a moderate hike, very vertical on a lot of loose footing.
Great Experienced! From 1.30am hotel pick up by MR Budi Very Friendly and informative , to the challenging hike and climb of Mount Batur! Breathtaking views at the top!
Fantastic 19yr old young man guide named Kadek, he always make sure everyone are safe. Highly Recommended!
A very nice trip. Well, it is surely tough and my legs are still aching even though two days have passed. The route is tough and some part of it could be dangerous, so tourists need to be mentally prepared. After half way through the journey, I was regretting that I booked this trip. However, when you reach the top and reflect the way and have seen the magnificent view, you will realise that it is worth it! Will recommend to people who loves adventure and it physically fit. You need to take care of your knees.
Amazing adventure from 1am hotel pick up to the challenging hike and climb and the ultimately breathtaking sunrise view from the atop Mt Batur.
Incredible 19yr old young man guide named Hadek (I might have spelt it wrong).
The first question to ask is whether or not you want to do a tour with Mount Batur and second whether or not this is the right tour company? To the first question, I'd answer a tentative yes. To the second question, I'd say no. Based on what I observed, there are better tour operators. I enjoyed the hike but found it very difficult to see where we were going, even with flashlights. My guide was great at helping me along but I still wished we had head lamps. The breakfast on this tour was mediocre at best and we weren't offered any beverages other than the water we carried up with us. I saw other groups drinking hot chocolate and tea, which I would have welcomed given how cold it was. One thing that really irked me is that many tour groups picked their guests up at the top of Lake Batur. Instead, we seemed to be the only group to walk down all the way. By the time we finished, the other four people in my group no longer wanted to go to the Coffee Plantation so we didn't end up going. I would like to have still gone. So my answer is go if you enjoy hiking but go with another tour company.
