“The trek to the summit of Agung was not easy, but the experience and views made it worth our efforts. The tour was well organized, we had great guides, plenty of food and water and shared more than our prayers on the top of the volcano” Peter, Germany.
Trekking to the peak of the active volcano, Mt. Agung, Bali’s holiest and tallest mountain (3142 meters) takes four to five hours (eight - ten hours for the return journey). It is a somewhat difficult trek and requires a good level of fitness and some bravado, but is an extremely worthwhile and amazing spiritual experience.
Pick up in the Ubud area is around midnight, or 11:30pm the night before in Sanur and 11PM the night before in Nusa Dua, Kuta to Seminyak areas.
We start the trek at 1 - 2 a.m. (head torches and wet weather gear supplied, if needed) after making an offering and prayer at the holy Pasar Agung temple, the highest in Bali, we begin the ascent of this impressive volcano to arrive in time to witness the most remarkable sunrise you will see in Bali and to enjoy the spectacular morning views of the neighboring islands of Lombok, Nusa Penida and the whole south and east of Bali. Trekking first through jungle (where you can see wildlife on the return journey) we pass the tree line and trek up the lava flows of the 1963 eruption enjoying the spectacular night views of Bali (the lights are amazing). After sunrise and making an offering and prayer on the summit of this holy mountain we enjoy a well deserved breakfast before beginning our descent.
We serve a light breakfast and ample water is supplied during the trek.
At certain times of the month and on auspicious days it is not possible to trek to the summit of Mt. Agung. It is advisable to check as early as possible to ascertain whether it is possible to climb. It is not recommended that anyone tries this climb during the wet season.
Minimum 2 persons. (A single person surcharge applies if we only have one person climbing). The volcano is often closed for ceremonial reasons as it is one of Bali's holiest sites.
