Bali is actually a land formed by the cooling of volcanic eruptions in the sea. Batu is one of three sleeping active volcanic craters as high as more than 1000 meters in the middle. The last thing you can miss when you come to Bali is watching volcanoes. Batu crater is 1710 meters above sea level, the main peak is 2040 meters above sea level, and the surrounding bowl-shaped side-ring road is 1450 meters above sea level. Ubuhai is about 250 meters away, and a road goes straight up to the top of the mountain. The whole journey is about 35 kilometers. Starting at 9:30 a.m. by motorcycle, the highway is a straight slope of 10:1. There is no imagined steep Panshan Road. The highway up the hill is a straight slope. About an hour and a half later, we climbed the top of the 1450m mountain in Shanghai. The volcano of Batu is near us. The beautiful Lake of Batu is also in sight. Tickets are only 31,000 Indonesian guilders (16 yuan). The uncle of the ticket office offers greetings and directions. It's warm and touching! _________ Finally, I saw the first volcano in Indonesia, and it was on a motorcycle. I'm very proud of it. The top of the mountain is actually the margin of a deep crater formed by the collapse of the volcanic eruption, with a circular highway. Standing by the roadside, you can see the cone-shaped volcanic peak in the center and the Batu Lake at the foot of the mountain. To see the crater, we must first descend more than 400 meters to Lake Batu, and then find a path to climb on foot. It takes about two hours. The road is not easy to find. Please ask the guide. We drove 400 meters down to the lake, half circle around the lake, see the scenery under the volcanic cone, feel the volcanic melting rocks everywhere, feel the power of nature. Driving a motorcycle half a circle on the lakeside highway, the foot of the mountain is covered with volcanic rocks. There are many hotels and hot spring resorts near the lake, but few tourists. At last, he climbed another 400 meters back to the top of the mountain, when the wind and clouds surged and a light rain began to fall. There are several sightseeing restaurants in Mani, Beijing. Tourists on chartered trains eat in the restaurant and leave as soon as they see the mountains. They don't go to the lakeside or under the volcanic cone. The return journey is 35 kilometers downhill and back to Ubud at 3 p.m.
That's a bad suggestion. After getting off the plane in the early morning, take a bus to the foot of the volcano. It takes about two hours to climb the mountain. It feels cold at the foot and top of the mountain, but it will be a little hot during the climbing process. It feels very good to see the sunrise on the viewing platform. After watching the sunrise, climb to the top of the mountain. It needs to be reminded that the way from the viewing platform to the top of the mountain is very short, but very steep. It can be said that it takes three steps and one step.
The mountain next to Lake Badur is Mount Batur. The taxi driver told us that Mount Batur is not a volcano, but a hill. Mount Batur is opposite to Mount Mani in Beijing. You can have a full view of the two mountains when you eat a buffet. The temperature in the mountains is lower and cooler than in other parts of Bali. It is estimated that it will be a little cold during the rainy season. The mountain is really spectacular. The white clouds float on the mountain. The blue sky sets off the white clouds. With the cool breeze, we planned to finish the mountain and eat at the restaurant called Batur Sari Restaurant on the way to Lake Batur. The chartered driver asked us if we would like to have a mountain buffet. We could enjoy the scenery while eating. I asked him if he was delicious. He said that his guests said it was delicious, and then we believed him. And he told us that he helped us buy the meal tickets for 120K people, if we buy it ourselves, plus the tax may exceed his price, we can choose him to buy it for us, or we can choose to buy it ourselves. It seems that the boy is honest, so we let him buy it. But, however, the important thing is said three times. While I was eating, I heard a couple of Chinese young couples who were traveling by motorcycle asking their boss how much money they paid for a person. The boss sneaked them behind the door. I listened quietly with my ears sideways. Only one person had a tax of 100K. ___________ We were pitted for 20K per person. Therefore, honest chartered drivers are to "eat", keep an eye on themselves, by the way, there are not many buffet choices, personal feeling chicken kebabs, spring rolls, French fries and fried noodles are delicious, others are not delicious, and there are many flies flying around the shop. Children's shoes that emphasize cuisine but neglect environment are better served at the foot of the hill.
It is not an easy hike if you are unfit or think that trekking is easy like i did. But wow...what a view once you get to the top. you will have motorbikes zooming past you and there are lots of tourists. the view of the lake below is stunning. eggs cooked in the vents from the volcano for breakfast is a nice touch.if you are unfit like me leave earlier and walk slower you will get there and be rewarded. its very hot at the bottom while walking up but you will need warm attire for the top. most companies will provide you with a jacket
Climbing Batur volcano usually starts at 3 or 4 a.m., climbing for 2 or 3 hours can reach a sunrise platform, because climbing volcano is very energy-intensive, need to prepare energy-intensive food and water, control diet, because there is no way to go to the toilet, climb the mountain steeper, if there is physical strength can also climb to the top of the mountain to see the sunrise, I think girls in the middle platform already very much. Not bad. Many foreigners also choose the platform to view the scenery. The scenery is very good. They can also see monkeys grabbing food around them. The temperature on the mountain is low. There are cotton clothes rented at the foot of the mountain. One dress is 25,000. After watching the sunrise, you can go down early. After all, it takes three hours to go down. It will be very hot when the sun comes out. The road is not easy to walk. There will be children who will take the initiative to lead the way. But remember to buy bottles of water from them in the end. This is an industry chain.
I could never imagine that at the peak of Mt. Batur I could experience the beautiful sceneries around it. I could really say that it's worth the trek because you will experienced how cold the place was, how wonderful the sunrise was and how amazing the sea of clouds formed. It's just a wow moment of my life.
The scenery is beautiful. It's worth climbing all night to the top of the mountain.
