"Sunset & Sunrise Camping At Volcano Batur"
Sunset & Sunrise Camping : At 1717 meters , “Mount Batur Volcano” is the 2sd highest point of Bali. To get the most out of this hike, we need two days one night to experience Sunset, Sunrise, mountain caving, etc. In this way we are able to have an incredible camping experience, we will spend a night on top of Mount Batur.
We start in the afternoon at about 3 pm from our base at Toya Bungkah Village. The hike will take you about 2 hours depends on the amount of hikers and their physical condition. By the time we reach 1500 meters above sea level where we will set up our tents. Then at about 6 pm we ready to watch the sunset at the peak of the volcano 1717 meters above sea level. The hike from the camping ground to sunset view will take you 14 to 20 minutes. While you are enjoying the sunset view you will be served simple meal (often cooked banana on the steamed of volcano) with hot Bali Coffee and tea.
After watching the sunset we will be back to the camping ground to prepare our dinner. We will cook dinner and make a nice camp fire. Some wine (locally known as Arak Bali and Brem) is poured around and we make a toast for a clear day and safe return. On full moon nights it is incredible and on the dark moon you will be able to see more stars than you have ever seen before.
The next day we will wake up little earlier than your regular wake up time. All of the hiking and camping gears should be packed before the coming of the other tourist who just hikes the volcano to see the sunrise. These gears will be taken care by our potter. The morning sights are amazing. When the sun starts to rise, beautiful colors of purple, orange, pink and red appear. The sky slowly changes from black to blue while the clouds dissipate and re-form due to the temperature changes caused by the rising sun.
This is the best moment to see the oceans. It is hard to put into words how amazing it is to watch this new day begin. You may have seen sunrises before, but surely few compare to one witnessed at the top of Volcano Batur. On a clear day we can easily see Mount Rinjani in Lombok Island.
After watching the sunrise, the hike will be continued to explore 3 main craters of the volcano. This hiking will also take you to the recent black lava flow. This Journey will be completed at Batur Natural Hot Spring. Relax and recharge your mind at this natural hot spring.
