Bali Echo Tour: Trekking on Mount Batur
The Mount Batur Sunrise Trek is one of our most popular tours for good reason. Explore an active volcano and get up close and personal with one of Bali’s most sacred mountains. Get the spectacular experience views of the sun bursting spreading over the caldera and lake below. The trek takes about one to two hours to reach the peak at 1,717 metres above sea level. Once you arrive at the highest point, it really feels as though you are on top of the world, as you can see the majestic peak of neighbouring Mount Abang hovering above the clouds, the distant cone of Mount Agung on the horizon, and the caldera lake spread out below.
Please contact our Guest Service Assistance for more information regarding Mount Batur Trekking.
