Thank you Batur trekking for the most wonderful experience! Our driver picked us up at our hotel in legian and was already waiting at the lobby when we went down. The car was very comfortable and clean. A 1.30hrs – 2hrs drive later we have reached!
Met our guide Gede and was provided with headlight and hiking sticks (trust me you will need this while coming down!) this is where the fun begins! Gede was really helpful on the trip, especially as I had a bad knee. He is a funny guy and we had a nice banter which made the time past quickly!
He was professional and well informed as we asked him plenty of technical and history questions of Mt Batur. He even saw I was wearing my headlight wrongly at one point and corrected it. He also taught me what kind of rocks to steps and how to position myself while descending. The top was spectacular when we reached and Gede cooked us breakfast using the steam at the volcano.
Indeed a memorable pushed him over but he always manage to hold ground. Very very grateful for that as I really could not have made it down myself experience and thanks you once again Batur Trekking. Definitely will use them again if and when we’re back. 10/10! – jerainet2015
