Danau Batur

The lake is at the bottom of an huge caldera. There are not so many possibilities to stay there, but basic accommodation is available. Most tourists probably come to hike up to Gunung Batur. A local agency somehow has the monopoly to sell tours up to the mountain, therefor the prices are high. At the time we have been there (2006), the mountain also was protected in order to hinder people to hike up on their own. We have been sent away and our car was escorted by some motorcycles :)

What we enjoyed very much, was driving through the area west of the lake. There are old lava fields which make you feel like being on the moon.

  • Very nice view on sunrise time. do climb early morning to get the best view, start on 4am and you will get on the top at 6am, dont forget you have to do with trekking guides.

  • A climb to the summit of Mount Batur – 1,717 meters and still an active volcano - to watch the sunrise is a great experience for more energetic travelers. This is an easy climb of about 2 hours and local guides abound. You do not need to be in peak physical shape to complete this trek. Be the first one to admire the Sun rise from the highest peak of Mount Batur.
