Mount Agung Hiking Routes (3142 meters)
There are two common climbing routes up the mountain, all are chalenging and you need to be physically fit and have some serious trekking experience.
- Mount Agung Hike Via Besakih Temple (west)
The best routes of hiking in Mount Agung.This is a chalanging hiking starting nearby Besakih temple which is the most screed and also called the Mother Temple of Bali.Hike through he dense jungle of Besakih.The ascent will take aproximately 6 to 7 hours and ends at the very highest point of the mountain.
The final hour or so is exceptionally demanding often requiring ascent on all fours. Mount Agung hiking is ideally started at about 11.00 PM, so that you arrive at the top before dawn and wait for the sunrise. From here you are able to witness the stunning sunrise overlooking Mount Rinjani in Lombok and the masjestic view on giant crater of Caldera Batur with its Lake Batur.
- Mount Agung Hike Via Pasar Agung Temple (south)
A three to four hour hike in which time you ascend about 2,000 metres.
Not so stiff as the Besakih route. The route ends about 100 metres below the actual summit, but the views are still excellent in all directions, as well as down into the actual crater.
A sensible start time would be about 2:00 AM, again with aim of reaching the peak just before dawn.
