hiking  in bali

hiking bali

Most of the luxury spa resorts that we are recommending in Bali have lovely walking and hiking trails to explore. 

It's a beautiful way to observe life in the terraced hillside rice fields and to get a powerful sense of perspective of where you are on the island.  The walking is generally easy to intermediary and is available as self guided or accompanied by a guide.

One of the best hikes is up Gunung Agung - the most sacred and highest mountain of Bali. But, be warned, this hiking trail can be really though, especially towards the summit.  So you should be trained and fit if you have set your sight on this mountain...

The best time to climb Gunung Agung is from July until September. It's prohibited to go hiking during religious events though. The Balinese believe that if you ignore this rule the gods will punish you.  You can believe it or not, but we think out of courtesy it is better to respect this rule...

There are two trails to the top and for both of them you'll need a guide which, of course, we can arrange for you. In the lower part of the mountain the area is pretty forested and the different paths make it very confusing.

Besides, it’s a shame if you are late for the sunrise just because you got lost...
