Experience the euphoria of trekking up Mount Agung, a live volcano which last erupted in 1963. The grueling 5 hours trek over its steeply inclined slope is unarguably the most challenging outdoor activity in Bali. At 3031m above sea level, its summit is the tallest point on the island. The almost perfectly conical volcano looms large over the surrounding pasture fields and villages. At its top, is a large and deep crater which occasionally belches smoke and ash – a sinister reminder of its potent destructive power. The Balinese hold great reverence for Mount Agung, believing it to be a replica of the mythical Mount Meru, the central axis of the Hindu universe. Successful summiteers will be rewarded with amazing view of Mount Rinjani to the east, Mount Batur to the west and the beautiful coastline of east Bali below.
DENPASAR – SELAT
Pick up by our friendly driver from the airport or your hotel to the village of Selat (approx. 2-4 hrs drive) for the Mount Agung climb. The pickup time depends on your pickup location and it is usually between 9pm to 1130 pm. After a quick refreshment of coffee and snacks, you will proceed to the park office for climb registration.
For this climb, you will scale the mountain from its southern slope. The trailhead begins at Pasar Agung Temple (1560m) about 10 min drive from the park office. The trek to the crater rim takes about 4-5 hrs. A good time to begin the trek from the trailhead is before 2am so that you can reach the crater rim in time for the sunrise. At the crater rim, you will be rewarded with amazing view of Mount Rinjani to the east, Mount Batur to the west and the beautiful coastline of east Bali below. After sunrise, you will descend the mountain via the same route. Take a short rest at Selat village before embarking on your next destination.
