Sceneries of mountains and volcanoes in Bali

Mount Batur

Mount Batur is located in the northern part of the island, near the city of Kintamani. It is best to climb it at dawn to watch the sun rise.

Volcano Agung

Located in the eastern part of the island. Sunrise or sunset is the best time to enjoy the views.

Mount Merbuk

The mountain is located in the eastern part of the island, next to the Agung volcano. Dawn and sunset are the ideal times to enjoy the views from here.

Climbing Mount Merbuk is considered easier and less popular than Mount Agung. From the top there are magnificent views of neighboring volcanoes and rice terraces.
How to visit the volcanoes and mountains of Bali?

It's quite simple. You need to find a guide who will agree to guide you, and also find special warm clothes, because it is much colder on the tops of mountains and volcanoes. Typically, guide services cost $100-200. In most cases, guides not only help you climb mountains and volcanoes, but also take you from your hotel to their foot; We recommend these kinds of tours to you.
