DAY 6

2:00 AM – Departure for Lake Batur to climb the volcano by sunrise. This is an exciting and challenging day. Anyone with an average level of fitness can achieve the goal of getting to the top by sunrise.

It is a very outdoors experience, walking on steep paths, walking by torchlight for the first hour, the last km is quite steep, and of course navigating your way down some rocky paths on the way back down. But reaching the top makes it all worthwhile. Take home a great sense of achievement and some amazing photos.

There will be two to three guides with the group. They are very experienced and very helpful. They are there to give you a hand up if you need it. Usually the group breaks into different places and the guides split up accordingly. It is not a problem to walk at a slower pace, as you won’t hold up others who may want to steam ahead. We have time to relax at the top, so it’s not a race.

Once we hit the bottom we will take a short walk to the Hot Springs where we will soak in the natural springs and enjoy a foot massage at the local spa.

When we return: Upon return from our volcano climb we will have breakfast at the villa. As soon as breakfast is finished the rest of the day is yours to do as you please.

You can go shopping, head into the hustle and bustle of Ubud or simply relax and do absolutely nothing…

6:30 PM – Dinner and celebration

Meals included: Breakfast and Dinner

“Bali offers a lot of opportunities to explore the outdoors. From hiking with monkeys and crossing rivers, you will work up a sweat here!

You only live once, so we wish you the best in staying healthy while travelling. Remember, exercise leads to happiness and health!

As many people who have visited Bali know, it can be a little difficult to leave this island paradise behind.”

Tips on what to pack:

1. Fitness

4x sets of workout gear as a minimum. Best to bring 2 pairs of shoes – one old pair for muddy conditions.

2. Yoga

Comfortable stretch pants and t-shirt or singlet.

3. Walks & Treks

Workout gear works best. Bring gear, including sports shoes that you don’t mind getting wet and dirty at times.

4. Shoes

We spend a lot of time outdoors, so pack suitable sandals or thongs. Preferably bring 2 pairs of sports shoes as this allows time for one pair to dry if necessary. Old shoes are best!

5. Everyday

Lightweight, casual clothes for the tropics.

Light long sleeve t-shirts and pants for the surprisingly cool evenings/early mornings.

Sleep in whatever is comfortable for cool nights.

Swimmers/Bathers

Hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, insect repellent – it’s the tropics!

6. Volcano

It can be very cool when you start, but you will soon be warm. Wear layers.

A nylon wind jacket or a jumper is a good idea.

TIP:  It is freezing at the summit, so a jumper/jacket is handy!

7. Bits & Pieces

    • Bring a power adaptor suitable for Indonesia (a European adapter) if you need to use your phone or camera.
    • A reusable shopping bag or daypack is a good idea to help avoid plastic bags if you go shopping.
    • Pack the camera. Check the Battery before you leave.
    • There will be some time to relax, so bring a book or some magazines.
    • Wi-Fi is available at the villa.

Travel Hints

1. Passport

Ensure that your passport is valid for 6 months with 1 empty page.

2. The Airport

If you are unsure about the airport arrival process you might want to use one of the VIP arrival services now available. They will meet you in the arrival’s hall and escort you through the entire visa/customs/luggage process.

There are many services. Google “VIP Airport service Bali” for some results, this service will cost extra.

3. Group Transfers

Your package includes group transfers to the Villa. We pick up at specified times form the airport or nearby hotels.

You will be advised of group transfer arrangements once all guest details are confirmed.

4. Money

Local currency is Indonesian Rupiah and the exchange rates can fluctuate.

It is easy to change money, don’t bother trying to get Rupiah in Australia. (Only exchange a small amount in Australia if needed. The exchange rates are better once you are over there.) If you are not confident in getting money exchanged while you are in Bali we can do it on your behalf.

ATM and currency exchange are available at the airport. (Please note: there are no money changing facilities at the Villa).

You will only need cash for your extras whilst you are away (shopping, alcoholic beverages, tipping etc.)

5. Staying in Touch

We have mobile phone reception and Wi-Fi but no landlines.

Ensure that global roaming is organised to your phone BEFORE you leave home.

Indonesia code is +62.

To use your phone with a local sim card, do the following:

  • Your phone must be unlocked and ready to accept a new sim card BEFORE you leave home.
  • Bring the device to release the sim card on your phone (iPhone.)
  • iPhone users require the sim card cut down – the card sellers do this for you.
  • Best to buy the new sim card and phone credit BEFORE you arrive at the Villa. You can buy these at the airport from a kiosk that sells drinks etc. We can buy more phone credit for you as needed.

6. Meals

For safety reasons we are unable to accept guests who have a fatal allergy to any foods.

We are equipped to serve separate meals however, there will be times when the closest hospital is 2 hours away and we prefer not to put anyone at risk.

7. Drinking Water

Only drink bottled water, including cleaning your teeth.

8. Alcoholic Drinks

If you are a wine drinker, bring your own wine (or spirits if that’s what you’re in to) as it is difficult and very expensive to buy locally. We can provide juices, tonic, soda etc. for you to mix with your own spirits.

9. Safety

Make sure you have travel insurance (this is compulsory for all our guests). Please send us a copy of your travel insurance.

Please bring a photocopy of your passport photo page, travel insurance documents and flight details.

Be responsible about any medical conditions you may have. Pack your medications and fill any prescriptions necessary as they may not be available over there.

10. Tipping

The guides that we use are phenomenal. They go above and beyond to make our experience as wonderful and authentic as possible. It’s not a must but I always tip the crew from our daily activity. If you wish to put a small contribution towards this, I usually collect it at the end of the day and hand it to them as we are heading back into the villa.

The same goes for the staff at the villa who will do absolutely anything for you. A tip is usually collected at the end of the stay and given to Putu (villa manager) to divide between the staff. Again, this is not mandatory however if you feel you would like to contribute I know that they really appreciate it.
