Two Adventures in One Day
With a pre-dawn pick-up from your hotel, our safe, friendly and licensed driver will deliver you and your group to the base of Mt Batur in our air conditioned van. There, you’ll meet your guide for the trek who will provide you with a safety briefing and precautions. This is a good time to ask any questions before you begin your hike.
It will still be dark so each hiker in your group will get a flashlight before your ascent up the mountain. Your guide will gladly provide history and culture of the surrounding area during your trek and will be available to help those in your group who need it. Once at the top, you’ll rest as your guide will prepare coffee, tea, bottled water and breakfast cooked over the volcanic steam of the volcano. Relax, take pictures and enjoy the sunrise over the eastern sky.
When everyone is ready, you’ll hike along the crater rim and back to your transportation where you’ll be taken to one of two rivers; either the Telega Waja or the Ayung, whichever is more suitable for your family. Before you arrive at the river, however, we’ll make a quick stop at a coffee plantation where you can taste Luwak coffee and local teas.
At the river, you’ll get another safety briefing and receive necessary gear before you head down the river with its beautiful jungle scenery, waterfalls, ancient stone carvings and exciting rapids.
Afterwards, your guides will pack up the gear and you’ll be treated to an Indonesian style buffet lunch by our local chefs. Eat and drink at your leisure. Once you’ve finished, we’ll take you back to your hotel where you’ll still have time to relax by the pool, go to the beach or get a massage.
