Mountain Hiking around Bali’s Munti Gunung

Mountain Hiking around
Bali’s Munti Gunung

Few regions in Bali are as beautiful as Munti Gunung. Where local villages are now gaining support
to obtain sustainable means to live, grow crops and send their children to school, we have
tailored a tour that offers the best panoramic views of Bali.

WHY THIS TOUR?

Often seen as one of the more rural regions of Bali with nature at its finest and jaw-dropping views over nearby Mount Agung, Mount Rinjani and even Lombok on a clear day, this trekking tour covers the most untouched parts of northern Bali. The Muntigunung area is famed for its spectacular rugged mountains – a landscape that provides a deep contrast with the beaches of South Bali. This is one of the lesser developed areas on Indonesia’s most popular island.

Led by local guides and hiking experts, the paths and trails we follow have been set up in such a way that you do not see all that is around but also take part in supporting the local villages, most of them less privileged than others. The full-day exploration includes visits to local handicraft projects and a development centre, with plenty of time to admire this untouched side of the ‘island of the gods

TRAIL ITINERARY

Mountain Hiking around Bali’s Munti Gunung

05:00 - 17:00

We’re setting off early in the morning and head in a northern direction towards the holy slopes of Mount Agung. Here, the landscapes slowly turn from when you leave your resort and move towards the starting point from commercial to purely local. As soon as we arrive at Songan, you will see the towering silhouettes of Mount Agung and Rinjani slowly appear.

We commence our trek up the intensely arid north-eastern slopes of Bali’s mountain ranges while your expert trail leader will explain the sustainable development in-depth of the residents who call this region their home. With the support of local NGO’s and working in collaboration with the villages around Munti Gunung, you will take an active part in creating a sustainable future for these villagers. Although living on fertile soil, the dry season that runs for months in a row often does not provide sufficient crops to survive.

This moderate trek brings you along with these mountain villages with spectacular views around every single corner of an untouched landscape as they go along with farming and going about with their daily lives. Charity projects have been set up here where these villagers have started producing both handicraft and useful household items as well schools for these mountain children. Few of its native residents have become mountain guides and now are happy to show you around the region they call home.

We end our mountainous adventure by serving lunch at a local restaurant. Before we head back to your hotel, there will be ample time to spend some time at one of the more remote beaches.

Expect to return to your hotel at around 5 pm.
