Hikers beware !if you are like my husband who was planning to walk up this mountain without a guide ,then you will possibly be disappointed.
First either book tour or reputable company (we would normally use Bali safest drivers but they were busy).My husband booked a taxi driver who seemed friendly, he charged more than going rate then ,after agreeing price he didn't even come and sent another taxi driver.When he arrived at Mounts Batur (after 2.5hrs from nusa dua )he was met by Mafia guys .. no joke he was told he had to pay for a guide otherwise he wasn't going to be allowed to get past them.He then tried to drive to the other side of Mountain but was again met by more Mafia types...in the end he gave up and decided to see other parts of beautiful Bali. Very sad that he wasn't able to do this hike.
