Appreciation of the sunset views and hardworking miners
Beautiful sunset view
Friendly guide who will check up on you and go at your pace
Appreciation of hardworking miners
If you keep your expectations in check, the blue flame is still nice but smaller, you must go fast enough to see the blue flame by 2am or the wind will change and block the view.
Gas mask provided
Challenging incline but worth it for the sunset
For the price, tour can improve by organising complementary food before or after the hike or small snack once at the top while you wait for sunrise.
Very long and tiring travel time from Bali , but I am glad I did it this one time. It is better to do this hike if you are staying close by.
Hike is too short!
I went here to try to hike and I thought there was a long trek to hike. but instead it was quite short and it was not demanding at all. The view was great but nobody told me to bring jackets so was a bit cold
We get picked up on time (very rare in Indonesia), the driver was nice, and when we fell asleep he didn't mind. When we met with the guide, he was so attentive and make sure all of us are doing fine till the way to the spot. The view is really amazing I didn't have the chance to photograph it because i thought it would be a bad idea to bring heavy cams to the hike
Worth the money you spent
We were going there in a group of 6 person so it's a bit cheaper. The car was full and a bit stuffed with our equipment and we didnt get comfy sleeps. when we start the hike we were still tired and unable to enjoy the hike, but eventually the view up top is nice. Not one of us complained so I guess it's money well spent
Was satisfied by the view of the blue fire and the lake. thank you voyagin
Don't forget your extra battery!
Seriously, if you plan to capture the moments, you will need to bring a camera AND an extra battery. The view along the hike up to the top is really amazing, and when you come down, you will meet the very friendly miners. you won't believe your eyes when you see their shoulders! it's a truly amazing experience
Easy booking, easy hke, beautiful view
We made the booking on thursday when we decided to make the hike on Sunday Morning. At first the system says in review, and we were a bit anxious. But after a few call to the cs, they handle it professionally, and the first thing that came the next morning is the confirmation email. The pickup is right on time and we left our hotel at 6 PM. The car is the typical car you get in Indonesia - 7 seater family carrier, which is not that good, but just fine. I cannot remember how long we were on the road, but I remembered we make it to the top of the hike around 30 mins before sunrise, which means we had plaenty of time. the view is really good and i really wonder why there's not much of foreign tourist here. or maybe it's just not at the time when i came. Definitely recommend to try this!
It's a good hike with amazing view
it's nothing short of amazing! We went to the top without taking too much time, it's only around 2,5 hours. The hike is a bit like Bromo, just without the stairs and everything. When we make it to the top the exhaustion is well paid! The view of the blue fire and the crater is beautiful, and i spent the whole battery on my phone just to take pictures!
It was a long travel from Kuta to Java but it was all worth it. Our driver and our tour guide were both interactive and friendly. The trek it self is easy except at the crater part since the path is really narrow. But then most of the locals who were there during the climb were very helpful in assisting us.
It was worth the hike, except that the sulfur smell is really strong I suggest to bring a scarf to cover your nose prior the gas mask.
They gave out water as well.
Its a must try!
For the ones who love adventures, with extra bonus of AMAZING VIEW of the Blue Fire. Great activity!
