Mount Batur

Mount Batur is a perfect volcanic experience which attracts thousands of tourists across the Globe every year.

 

Mount Batur Volcano is situated on the Island of Bali, one hour's drive from Ubud. Mount Batur, considered sacred by the Balinese, is a fairly easy journey to one of the world's most active volcanoes leading to a strange pristine wilderness.

 

At the top of any of the three craters, Batur is a frightening testimony to the power of nature. The long sharp arcs of blown-out rock attest to violent volcanic eruptions, some as recent as 1994.

 

A walk to the smallest peak leads to the site of recent activity, with huge plumes of billowing steam overhead and the sight of molten red lava down the caldera.

 

Steam eruptions heave and crash like the sound of ocean waves and the earth underfoot rumbles restlessly.
