Mount Batur (Gunung Batur) Jul 07, 2013
Mount Batur (Gunung Batur) is a fantastic and picturesque volcano. I went up the mountain with the motorcycle and during the trip went through few temperature zones. It can be VERY COLD going up in the morning and most of the time you will get some welcoming rain. On the way you must stop at the coffee shops and get some fresh grounded and grown hot drink. Many shops are selling Luwak coffee at the ok prices (Luwak is coffee eaten and excreted by the animal called Civet). I personally did not find it better than local pure Bali coffee.

When you get to the rim you will be stunned with beautiful sight of the caldera and multiple stratovolcanos that are coming out of the crater. Road that follows the rim is very nice and spotted with interesting view points, temples and good restaurants. One road takes you down to the beautiful lake in the crater.

There are many hiking and biking tours in the area. This place is really worth exploring.
