This is the panorama from the camping site of Mount Batur located at Toya Bungkah. The new camping site is established here, only about 200 meters walk from the village, as new policy from local authority is that camping should be at the foot that Mount Batur remains clean as it is considered holy for locals.
This is the picture of Mount Batur Peak (1777 M) on the sunrise and usually visited by travelers expecting for the sunrise moment here. At the peak, you can feel the natural hot steam will make us feel warm even in the cold weather above. You can walk around the ridges to get better view of the panorama.
The camping ground in Toya Bungkah, one of the camping ground available can be used for more than 6 tents. It has toilet facility, and hiker recommended to do toilet thing here before climbing, as there is no toilet above. If you take camping package, at night can enjoy fire while having dinner.
The path is gravels that it is slippery. Recommended to wear proper hiking shoes, not tennis shoes. And for sunrise hiker must bring headlamp as must depart at 04.00 from camping site. Hiking pole is very helpful.
