Our Mt Batur experience was victory saved from the jaws of defeat. Based on recommendations we went to Mt Batur as a day excursion from Ubud. This mountain is famous for its sunrises but our crew of five was never going to get up at...More

We hired a tour to go to the mountain and it was expensive. The only thing the tour does is picks you up. They promise breakfast but it is a joke, white bread and boiled eggs. Horrible. You have to wear comfortable clothing to hike...More

Whilst it's been a long time since this volcano erupted, you can still see the blackened areas - with nearby homes. The view from the bridge is good - but like with most areas in Bali, every tourist spot is commercialised and everyone trying to...More

Yes you can but you'll be driving in he early hours of the morning when it's very dark and not brilliantly sign posted. For the amount it costs, id say you were better off getting a taxi or a driver.
