Never go there!!!

The area is controlled by local tourist mafia, which which will spoil all the good impressions from the trip to this place and volcano. The guys are very agressive and seem ready to physically damage you if you want to climb the Batur on your own. Very bad experience!

I was really excited to see the picturesque volcano mountains at Kintamani. However, our party was spoilt by the really bad weather which included rains and fog. Though the cold weather on the hills was a respite from the Hot Bali weather, the view was completely hampered and all we could seesaw a blurred image of some mountain ranges covered under the fog.

Travelling to the mountain is quite a journey but worth it. The place, since its near the mountains is very cool. You can feel the climate change. Lots of fresh fruits along the way for fruit lovers. Plan your trip such that you can reach the mountain by lunch time. You can select a restaurant that faces the mountain and have a peaceful lunch. The view is beautiful and scenic.

We booked a day tour include Batur, Bali cultural itinerary includes Silver workshop, coffee favors, village visit, a culture dance, scarfs material workshop & Rice terrace. When reach Batur base, u can feel the cooling air outside, up the hill at the entrance, still got minor charge of each pax in IDR. When reach the restaurant, best is outdoor seats to see mountain views enjoying the breeze, it's awesome!! Take more pics~
