It' s our 4th time in Indonesia, and mount batur really discouraged us. The dealing to get a fair price for the trekking (guide compulsory) was a disaster. I am a licensed guide myself, and I understand that hiring a guide enriches the vistit, but...when we went to the "official" tiquet office, they really tried to cheat us with unbelievable fares.. more expensive than doing the same excursion from Ubud (transport, guide, breakfast included) while the only offered us a guide (we didn't need transportation because we already had a motirbike)... besides the threatened us to call the police if we didn't hire a guide. Such a bad experience. We decided not to do the trekking. I' m sure it' s beautiful, but we declined. Thank you official guides association for spoiling my stay at mount Batur.
