Batur Mount is one of the sacred mountains in Bali located at Batur Village, Kintamani District, close from Batur Lake and Pinggan Village. This mount has been one of the favorite mountains in Bali to hike because the trek is not too difficult and the mount is just 1717 m above sea level, so you can reach at the top about 2 hours.
It took time about 2 hour to get the starting point from Denpasar Town. If you want to see the beautiful sunrise from the top, I recommend you to start hiking at 03.00 am, because the sun will rise at 05.30 am. The hiking trek is very suitable for the beginner because not too difficult and safe for you, this mount can be your first mountain to hike in Bali.
From the top of Batur Mount you can see the other mountains such as Abang Mount, Agung Mount and Rinjani Mount, the 3rd highest mountain in Indonesia that situated at Lombok Island. The sun will rise from the left side of Rinjani Mount. The orange color of the sun and the blue sky will make the view from this spot look like paradise.
If you come to Batur Mount, I think it is useless if you just come to see the sunrise. I recommend you to surrounding the crater, it took time just about 30 minutes to surrounding the Batur Crater fully. To surround it, you need courage and adventurous spirit, because it is hard to surrounded, you must be careful and vigilant. You can see the villages that surround this mountain and the other mountains in the west.
It is recommended mount to hike in Bali when you got holidays, where you just book your trip through a reliable travel agent. I believe your trip will be awesome and great experience.
