The best way to take on the peak of Mount Agung Batur is to use the local guides who will carry all of the tents and equipment up the peak for you. There are 3 sleeping bases on the way up the peak where you can camp and then wake up first thing in the morning half way up a volcano and continue the challenge.

This is an excellent Mountain Trekking in Bali and is one of the most enjoyable treks in Indonesia. However it is not wise to attempt this climb without a guide for the obvious reasons of safety but also due to the local people who have a monopoly on the guides and this is the only line of business in the area. It has been reported that people have experienced problems with the locals when not using a guide although with a guide everything is always fine.
