Booking a private sunrise trekking tour was one of the best decisions we could make! Our experienced guide, Gada, was super friendly and attentive to our every need-from providing great equipment like walking sticks and headlamps, to preparing our sunrise breakfast with a broad smile. He was also very aware of our safety and made an effort to inform us about the area and its surroundings. He also succeeded in adding an element of fun to the trip as we bantered and chatted along the way. Thank you for making this an unforgettable experience! Would definitely recommend this trip.

Being in Ubud we decided to go on this experience, since my girlfriend insisted to try it. We were two couples and we were picked up from Ubud around 2:15 AM. We drove aprox. 1 hour to a very local place to drink a coffee and eat a fried banana, from where we drove another 20-30 minutes. It was completly dark when we started the trip and a lot of small groups were present. They provide you flashes and warm clothes if needed.

We had no clue how it is going to be, so in the begining it was nice and funny but as we advanced, the path became more abrupt and narrow. until the base of mountain, after that is extremly abrupt, for 1.5 hours you are climbing on rocks of 0.5 m height (very high stairs). So be aware before this trip to be in a good shape, sleep well and prepare with good training equipment.

I have seen many people in jeans or some random sneakers, which would kill you until the end. The path is really abrupt, and I can say I am a very active person, but from halfway I was all wet, more than running 6 km in the gym :) and my legs were burning. I am writing this because I ve heard many people of not being aware of how difficult it is or they didn't know what to expect!

In the end it was worth it all, once you got on the top, it is so mentally and physically relaxing, seing all clouds under you and the huge sun rising. There are 2-3 guides per group who are taking care of you, so no worries, and providing you 1 boiled egg with 2 slices of bread and one banana, not much, but after all that effort, you cannot have more.

After the sunrise, you are exploring the vulcano crater, where you can see the steam going out through rocks, monkeys and a really nice adventure down to bottom. The return way is easier but still 70% from the climbing.

Really difficult and challenging but worth all the steps and effort I have made! It was around 350k rp with pick up/drop off/breakfast included.

Although we did not get the full sunrise due to cloud coverage we still managed to get a glimpse of the immense beauty and views down below. The journey up and down were very manageable. Definitely bring a jacket for the top as it can be chilly waiting for the sunrise. Be careful of the monkeys on top! Our tour guide was amazing. Would have been five stars if it weren’t for the clouds!

On our trip/morning the top was covered in cloud, so no sunrise for us. The clouds broke up a little part-way down so we got a view over the lake and lava fields. Despite all that it was a great way to start the day.
A tricky climb, with 100's of people adding to the challenge.
Sunrise Trekking seemed well organised.
Our guide - Bogus - was great. Speaks 6 languages, chatting to everyone whilst leaping from rock to rock. He was leaping from rock to rock because he was racing us up the hill.

Dear Mr. MARTIN

Thank you for completing your reviews on Tripadvisor Let me clarify :
I'm very much sure that you didn't sign up directly to our page. It could be similar name of the company but definitely not us.after discovered your photos post ,I'm very much sure that the guide not from our team.
None of our guide named Bogus.
Using our service will pick starting point from less crowd which is located at eastern part of the volcano so not busy trek and less loosing rock also no dust along the way up.
Starting point from regular base will dusty especially at dry season from April to November. We give private guide not waiting for the other people arrive. totally separated with other group.
We don't have any stalls representative all over Bali.
Just online reservations.
I hope we can meet up in the future to try one more adventure to hike mount batur from different start point.

Kind regards
