Hiking an active volcano sounds like a crazy idea. Isn’t it? This is about Mount Batur which is technically considered as active, but sleepy as per the current state because it doesn’t spew ash and lava.
Where is this volcano?
Aim for the best experience
If you are someone who wants the best views, don’t hike in the morning or the evening when there’s light. Hiking in the dark is fun, and what’s most amazing about this experience is the sunrise views from the mountain-top once you reach there.
Is Batur the highest volcano in Bali?
Bali has several volcanoes and Batur is just one of them. It’s not the highest because Mount Agung owns this title. But, this mountain is closed for trekking because it’s no longer a sleepy volcano and Batur still is.
About the hike
Mount Batur is 5633 feet above sea level being relatively smaller than the Agung Mountain. So the hike is sure to be easy, and you just need some fitness level.
