Mount Batur Live Crater Morning Walk

From USD $38.00
  • Duration: 8 Hours (approx.)
  • Product code: BTR008
We pick you up early in the morning for coffee break or light breakfast at the Lookout Deck, enjoying the change of light at sunrise with the stunning vista of Mt Batur and Lake Batur. This gives you a chance to you survey the landscape that you are about to explore at first light.

Among the verdant green landscape are the black and grey lava flows and ash cones from the recent eruptions (1963 - 1999) of the younger craters of Mt Batur.  You walk 7km and rise 400m on a gentle-sloping walk across ash-fields and lava-rock crusts before the brief steep trek to the lip of the youngest crater.

This quieter alternative to the Mt Batur Sunrise Trek is perfect for those who prefer to enjoy the stark yet sublime volcanic desert landscape without the hordes of other tourists at the Summit or Sunrise Point. We start the tour at a lovely temple that is the gateway for entering/leaving the spiritual domain of Batur for the local people. Pathways meander along lava formations up sandy slopes to fumaroles (steam-vents) ideal for cooking.

You descend after crossing the ridge of the Batur dragon's back and enjoy a smorgasbord lunch while looking back at the landscape you have explored before returning to your accommodation.

The tour includes pick up & drop off, coffee break, snacks along the way, drinks and a buffet lunch, walking stick if needed, guides & support team.
