How the sunrise trek started
Trail 1: You can leave from Puru Pasar Agung in the South and your climb would start directly at Pasar Agung Temple at the altitude of 1.700 metres and brings you up to 3,000 metres. The trail would take between 4-5 hours to reach the summit.
Trail 2: The other starting point is from Besakih, close to the temple. Keep in mind, trekking from this starting point is really demanding and it took us 6 hours.
How to book a nice Guide
- Book through a reputable agency (some hotels have tour desks) and be careful with the small street agencies that drag you inside. They come across as very convincing and will surely tell you that their guides have done this trek many times before and that they are their own guides.
- We would recommend you to source info from multiple websites – Facebook groups, TripAdvisor forums and other social media platforms, because nothing works better than word of mouth.
- Pay attention if an agency does just sell the tour without warning that it depends on weather conditions if the trek will go ahead (a good agency is rather too careful than too careless).
