As many people describe Batur in Agung's reviews.

Mount Batur reaches 1700m, it overlooks Batur Lake (1400m). The climb is an easy morning walk, only 300 elevation difference. A good way to start the day, walking with pets and children. Very crowded for sunrise.

Mount Agung is the highest peak of Bali, 3031m. It is officially closed but you can easily climb it, by yourself or hiring a guide (which I recommend). There are 2 ways:
-the "short way" from Pura Pasa agung, you start at 1700m and go to the top crater.
-the "longer" way, from Besakhi at 1000m up to the summit (see pictures I took this morning, January 2020).

This 2nd option is short (8 km) but steep (over 2000m elevation). Basically you start at midnight to arrive before 6 am, for sunrise. You need an average fitness. It requires carefulness, and some equipments: front lights, good shoes and a jacket.
Be aware that descending the higher, rocky part is the most difficult. It's slippery and some stones may fall: remain
concentrated.
Overall it's a great experience. The sunrise colors and the view is the best reward.

Beautiful volcanic mountain in Bali island. I was almost trekking up to the peak but due to the weather we had to cancel and wait for 1 day. The next day we climbed up and it was worth of wait.

Amed is very good for diving and see beautiful places. There is a chill and party community even it is a little far from the center.

We reached the area in the late afternoon when the volcano was completely covered by fog and clouds, but the day after we woke up at 5 in the morning to start one of the most spectacular sunrise we ever seen.
Agung was completely clear until 8 o'clock giving us the opportunity to get some of the most epic photos.

Unforgettable time hiking this giant- hike leaving 11PM arriving at the summit 6AM for sunrise. Hike wasnt as difficult as other volcanoes ive done - you are in forest for more than half of it, bring one hiking stick - not two. When you get on the rock, ti will be lighter and a bit less dangerous

When the sun rises...wow...

Hike down - annoying and 6 hours again, ha....youll be nice and dirty by the end

Impossible to do this without a guide. PM me for details

Well we didnt do the trek,but chanced upon to watch it when we were at Jatilwuhi Rice Terraces. This view is phenomenal as you can see the 3 mountains together- Agung,Lempuyang and Batur.

There are many local tour booths/shops at Bali.
Walk around and find it's cheaper than those offer online or with hotel.
I got mine for 500K IDR per pax with hotel transfer, two breakfast set with drinks and group tour guide .
