This was an amazing trip. The sunset view is incredible beautiful and my expectations have been exceeded many times. Thank you! The hospitality of the team is superb. Everything, from the punctual pick up the to the ascent and back was well managed. Arta, the driver, knows the island like his pocket vest and was like my guide on Mt Batu, Patra, are very welcoming and helpful at any point in time. Both speak fluently english. I can warmly recommend this tour to everyone who is visiting Bali - this is definitely as a must see in your bucket list.

Breakfast can't be called breakfast. Sandwich with eggs, snake skin fruit, coffee and a bar... It was more a snack. We didn't like it. You have to wear good shoes as it's steep and you need to have at least an advanced level of fitness.

A superb discovery at sunrise. Our guide, Wayan, was very attentive and really friendly. The ascent is not difficult but still requires to be in good physical shape.

The hike was a bit exhausting but definitely worth it! Beautiful view and experience. The guide was very nice as was the driver.

All the team pak Patra, Putu etc amazing and v helpful !
