Bali tours and things to do
Booked my Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking via Mr Didi’s company (Baliadventours) together with 3 other friends and it was an unforgettable experience!
As we were staying in Ubud, Mr Didi picked us up at 3am in the morning and we headed to Mount Batur. As it was an all girls team, Mr Didi chose the shortest and fastest route for us, the north route. Upon reaching the bottom, we met with our 2 friendly local guide and they handed us the mountain trekking stick and torch light as we are going to trek in total darkness before the sunrises.
Booked online for a sunrise hike up Batur, had an almost immediate response from Didi confirming our booking and 3am pickup from Ubud.
We were greeted by a very friendly and professional driver who helped keep us awake, and answered all of our questions about the region.
At about 4.30 we met our guide at the base of Batur and we were off! Our guide was an exceptionally nice local man who helped us up at our own pace, the hike to the summit was about an hour and 15, give or take…
The whole adventure went so smoothly. I was picked up by a very friendly driver who deposited me at the base of the mountain in the dark where I met my guide, this very energetic 63yrold Balinese man who handed me a walking stick and took off up the mountain laughing. We made it up in less than an hour. This was not the main way I figured out after reaching the summit but it was awesome.
I saw no one the entire way up. My driver took me to a local villages lake temple (no one there!) and then dropped me back at my hostel by 9am. Highly recommend this company. Didi and his father who guided me up were great.
