By far the most challenging Bali Mountain Trekking involves the climb to the peak of Mount Gunung Agung. This is Bali's highest mountain and sits at an impressive 3148 meters above sea level. The climb is popular amongst mountain climbers and welcome guests must be in good physical condition to make this ascent. The ascent will begin at two in the morning and visitors must use a listed guide and also register at the police office before hand. Gunung Agung is currently still active and last erupted on a big scale in 1963. Gunung Abang is the highest peak in the Batur region, and makes for easy climbing. The reason for this is that the steep peak of what used to be highest mountain in Bali erupted and got blown to pieces only to reveal a plateau of calderas and beautiful mountain lakes and gentle slopes.
