Leave from Kuta at 00.00 a.m. to Pasar Agung. It takes 2 hours. Leave from Pasar Agung at 02.30 a.m. up to the top of Mt. Agung. It takes 3 and a half to 4 hours at a normal condition. We climb in the darkness to get to the top. There are 3 trek points go to the top.
Pasar Agung–Telaga Mas Temple
We walk past a tropical forest which takes 1 hour. It is a pretty steep trail. You have to be ready with this hard start.
Telaga Mas Temple–Buffalo Stone
This trek is normally covered in 1 and a half hours and still pass tropical plantation. Here, similar to the first trek, you will walk past a pretty steep trail with loose volcanic sand and stone. This is a more challenging trek .
It takes about 1 hour or less depending on your spirit and condition. It´s a great trip. You have to creep and use your two hands to help your moving. Don´t try to stand upright. You´ll walk along the stone and sediment of lava that become as hard as the stone itself.
When arriving on the summit overlooking to the east is a spectacular view of the sunrise and Mt. Rinjani. If we look on the west side there appears the view of Mt. Batu Karu, one of the holiest mountains in Bali Island. After making some pictures of sunrise we go down to Buffalo Stone for Breakfast. Here, we enjoy an aerial view of the temple while enjoying breakfast with Perama Staff.
