Mt. Agung is an active volcano in Bali, Indonesia. It is the highest point on Bali, and dominates the surrounding area, influencing the climate, especially rainfall patterns. From a distance, the mountain appears to be perfectly conical. At the top, there is a large and deep crater. The trail begins at the base of the mountain near the Pura Pasar temple. Most visitors hire a guide which can be found for 900,000 IDR in the parking lot. Without a guide, it costs 100,000 IDR to hike. At the beginning, the dirt trail is short and steep. Towards the top, the trail turns into a slippery rocky field of volcanic scree. It is a challenging hike with incredible views of Bali at the top. Mt. Batur can be seen from the summit, as well as the famous Mt Rinjani on Lombok.
