Vacation to Bali Island isn’t only about visiting white sandy beaches. There are still many fun things to do in the island as one of them is Mount Hiking (also known “Mount Trekking”). From all mounts in Bali, Mount Batur is the most favorite by the hikers because it has a stunning sunrise viewing point.
The mount has height of 1.717 meters (5.633 feet) and a rocky and sandy route, which it is considered appropriate for the beginners or those who have no experience. The hike probably takes about 2 – 3 hours (depends how fast you hike) to get the peak from starting point.
For getting a spectacular sunrise view, you can start to hike at 02.00 am – 03.00 am in the early morning in order to arrive on the peak at 05.00 am – 06.30 am as a sun come in the east. Wear a jacket, hand gloves, and also sport shoes for keeping your body warm. Also, bring a flash light, a camera, and light breakfast for more amazing experience.
See a sunrise view while having a light breakfast is a perfect moment which will get on the peak. Cool mountain atmosphere really refresh mind and boost mood in the morning.
After hiking the mount, you can visit Natural Hot Spring where is located in the foot of the mount. There are some pools which offer hot water on 38 – 40 centigrade and decorated by shower statues.
You can spend time here to soak in a pool while seeing the beautiful landscape of mount and lake which face directly to pool. Therefore, you shouldn’t miss the natural hot spring.
If you are interested to have a longer trip and get more amazing experiences, then you can try and add others outdoor activities into your tour plan, as follows.
Add one of activities above after hiking on Mount Batur and make your holiday become more memorable in the fun activities combination. Hope this helps!
