Bali Mountain Retreat: Treks

Mt Batukaru Summit Trek.

TREK D: ( Difficult Trek)
This trek must be prebooked.

(All day: Difficult Guided Trek)

Trek the second highest mountain in Bali, the sacred Mt Batukaru.


This trek can be made in one day for active trekkers, it is considered difficult as the last hour near the summit has quite steep sections and is challenging.
The summit trek is available during the dry season, June - September, weather permitting, by advance booking only. The hike begins at 7.30am so we can arrive back in daylight at about 4.30pm.
We limit numbers on this trek as the Mt Batukaru summit trek enters sensitive rainforest in the nature reserve. Relatively unknown as a trekking feature of Bali, we respect local traditions and use local guides

Starting from 800m the trek will climb to 2275 m, the second highest point in Bali. Beginning at the Pura on the mountain,your guide will point out amazing plant life, beautiful butterflies and, if the forest allows, monkeys and the Kijang that live here.

Near to the summit


The changing landscape as you climb the mountain is evident in the flora and fauna. Moss, prehistoric tree ferns, wildflowers, creepers, orchids, butterflies and many birds can be seen in the moist primary forest (montane forest).
