A Hidden Eastern Sunrise on Bali

A Hidden Eastern
Sunrise on Bali

When seeking moments that will take your breath away, Bali’s Mount Lempuyang fills in that
void. Timeless natural charm with a dose of spirituality woven in this full day requires
an early rise, but the rewards at the end make it all so worth your while.


The ultimate sunrise – who is not after this natural phenomenon? With ample vantage points across its thousands of islands, Indonesia boasts some of the finest on the planet and where else than at the country’s most prolific destinations, one truly can sample seeing this daily moment of earthly magic rising from the east – Bali. Gaining new perspectives with the arrival of a new day on the Island of Gods, eastern Bali remains hardly touched and certainty when one lingers to watch the sunrise with as few people as possible.

The extinct volcano of Mount Lempuyang is the scene for pure bliss as we rise from the foothills early in the morning for a panoramic view across eastern Bali. The conditions may suit only those with decent physical health as the climb up to the top is a slightly challenging one. But for what it’s worth….it is so worth the few drops of sweat and the very early morning call.


A Hidden Eastern Sunrise on Bali

04:00 - 15:00

Pick up very early in the morning from selected regions in the south and western Bali by your English speaking hiking guide. The journey heads away from the popular beach destinations and moves towards Lempuyang in eastern Bali. At this time of the day, early morning risers by default, local traders gather around at markets to set up shop for another day of buying and selling fresh ingredients and household goods. Markets such as Bugbug and Culik are right on the path towards our starting point, and stops will be made to witness this morning ritual.

We continue further up and reach Mount Seraya where we head towards a carefully chosen viewing point, nearby Lempuyang. Subject to the collaboration of the weather gods, we will reach new heights as the sun slowly rises from below the horizon, setting the tone for another day in paradise. Nothing beats a good view after a decent morning drive with a cup of coffee or tea, and as this morning ritual comes to an end, we move down back to the base of the mountain. We continue on foot through the surrounding rice paddy fields up to the Tirta Gangga. A former royal palace, the name is derived from the Hindu word of Water from the Ganges, the numerous ponds and small lakes were once the pride and joy of the Karangasem Royals. Now open for the public, it is actually one of the coolest places to take a refreshing dip on one of the natural pools.

Lunch will be served at Tirta Gangga before we board our air-conditioned vehicle back in the southwestern direction towards your Bali resort where you will arrive at around 3 pm.
