The Indonesian island of Bali is one of the most accessible and popular holiday spots for travelers. Its reputation as a party and leisure destination aside, it also serves an exciting platter of adventurous options for intrepid travelers. Perhaps the most popular of these options is the Mount Batur sunrise trek. It is best done early morning during sunrise as it presents an amazing photo opportunity of stunning panoramic views. Here I write about my experience of walking this mountain trail for a quick micro-adventure. I was picked up from my hostel in Ubud at 2 am along with 5 other travelers and we drove for about an hour before reaching the starting point. We also stopped for about 15 minutes on the way, at a place where the operator had arranged breakfast for us. They also provided plastic water bottles which I refused as I was carrying my own reusable one. After breakfast we drove for about 15-20 minutes past Lake Batur which was of course not visible then. On the way, we crossed checkpoints manned by gatekeepers draped in shawls and sweaters and not very eagerly waiting in the cold to collect the entry fees.
