Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking in Bali is unforgettable
Bali Island is a tourist destination that is very well known throughout the world. Every year millions of people visit Bali. But, for people who are visiting Bali for the first time, Bali is usually considered only as a beach resort. Though Bali provides a large selection of tourist attractions for tourists. In Bali you can do cultural tours or culinary tours or shopping tours. Bali is a very complete tourist place.
Even for those who like trekking or hiking activities, Bali provides tours to the top of Mount Batur or to the summit of Mount Agung. For this trekking activity, people usually prefer to climb to the top of Mount Batur. That's because Mount Batur has a lighter level of difficulty. While Gunung Agung offers a higher level of difficulty. This is the reason why the Mount Batur trekking mount package is far more in demand when compared to the Agung mount sunrise trekking.
If you want to do trekking to Mount Batur then it is highly recommended that you use a tour package. By buying this tour package you can be more relaxed because everything is prepared for your trip. A shuttle car, food, and tour guide assistance are prepared for you. So all you have to do is prepare yourself to take part in this trekking activity. To climb to Mount Batur, we use the Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking package from Aswindra Jaya. The reason is simple, because they provide the cheapest packages.
Our trip to Mount Batur starts at around 1 pm. This is done because the location of our hotel is in the Uluwatu area. So it's quite far from the village of Kintamani.
Actually, it feels quite fun to explore Bali at night because everything is more quiet. When we arrived at the foot of Mount Batur there were a number of tourists who were also preparing to trekking to Mount Batur. Our driver introduced us to a guide who would take us to the top of Mount Batur.
Our guide was very friendly and very patient. For people who are used to hike, Mount Batur is quite easy to climb. But, for office workers like us who rarely exercise; this activity is very tiring. So there were a number of times we asked our guide for a break. This trip indeed feels quite tiring because in some parts of the climb is quite steep. So it is highly recommended that you wear shoes that are suitable for climbing.
Besides shoes, you also need to pay attention to the clothes you use. You should not wear jeans because it can make you feel more cold. The temperature at the top of Mount Batur can range from 14 degrees Celsius to 18 degrees Celsius. So make sure you wear clothes that can keep your body warm. You also need to consider that climbing to the top of Mount Batur will make your body quite sweaty. So make sure the clothes you use can absorb your sweat.
Do not hesitate to ask your guide for a break because your guide also does not want you to pass out halfway. That will trouble everyone.
If your stamina is not very good, then make sure you bring high-calorie foods such as chocolate. Foods like this can be very helpful when you do this Mount Batur sunrise trekking activity. Also make sure you bring a bottle of mineral water; because even the weather is cold ... you will sweat a lot.
If you read my writing above maybe you will assume that the activity of Mount Batur sunrise trekking is not fun. But on the contrary, this activity has been fun since the beginning of the climb. Just because we feel tired, that doesn't mean it doesn't feel good. Especially when we get to the top of Mount Batur; where we can watch the sunrise while boiling eggs using volcanic steam. This will be an unforgettable experience for you.
You can spend time to rest for a moment on the top of Mount Batur. After that you can go back to the departure place or you can go down to Lake Batur to try the hot springs at Toya Bungkah. If you want to soak in this Toya Bungkah hot spring, then you have to pay Rp150,000 for the entrance fee. Soaking in the Toya Bungkah hot spring is very helpful for relieving your fatigue during the climb.
If you feel you've finished bathing in the Toya Bungkah hot spring, you can go back to the place of departure. The driver will take you back to your hotel or accommodation.
It was indeed very tiring but this will be an unforgettable experience. Sunrise on the top of Mount Batur is very beautiful indeed.
