Climbing the volcano that dominates Bali physically and psychically requires
a guide and 2-3.00 am start, beginning with a 45 minute drive to Pasar
The hike starts from the Pasar Agung temple, with prayers
to ask permission of the gods for your climb and to prepare
your spirit for entering an area the Balinese consider the
spiritual hub of the whole island, and so to be approached
with care and respect.
A stiff walk up a winding path through the trees follows. Above the tree line. the way
becomes stony and the last section over boulders and scree is quite demanding.
But for the hardy a great reward: breakfast
at sunrise with
spectacular views over Bali and Lombok from the summit, great
views too inside the volcano crater. And then the descent,
which is also quite hard on the knees and leg muscles on the
way down. Only for the fit!
Back to Nirarta for some lunch, a snooze, and
maybe a massage for sore legs. (2.00 am start, return late morning)
'Quite a tough hike, particularly towards the top, but worth it for the magnificent views, and the great hollow crater.'

'Breakfast at sunrise on the crest of the volcano. What a revelation!'
