Bali Day 3

We spent our 3rd Day hiking up Mount Batur. This, was the highlight of the trip for me. I won't mind doing it all over agn just for the breath taking view. I swear the moment u rch the top.. Climbing up the uber rocky path, the persipiration trickling down ur face- Will be all worth it!

We woke up at 1.30am & left for a 2hr drive to our destination. Be sure to sleep early the day before tt! U will need all the energy u can get!

The view is so soooo awesome i felt so happy! Haven't felt a sense of relieve for quite some time, really. So being there watching the sunrise, walking back down the mountain with the sun shining down on your face & being surrounded by tall trees/lalangs swaying side to side.. Was the peak of my trip. I cldnt stop smiling & i felt so happy js being there.

I wld def recommend gng for this hike.The hike up the 6km mountain took abt 2hrs. Hike down took longer cause we took our time. There's another mountain tt's abt 41km if i'm not wrong? I strongly suggest the 6km one. Tt's tiring enough trust me. It's nothing like running! Hahaha.

A few things to take note of if you do plan to go for the hike up Mount Batur:

  1. Wear long pants! (It's super cold & because of the rocky pathway, u may fall or scratch ur leg.)
  2. Wear a pullover/jacket! (It's rly cold. But once u start hiking u'll start getting warm & u can tie the jacket ard ur waist till u feel the need to wear it agn.)
  3. If u hv a knee injury or any sorta injury tt may hinder your physical fitness, DON'T GO for the hike! (U will regret it i swear. It's not a walk, it's a climb. It's tedious i can assure u. Gng down the mountain isn't easy either it's actually worse. The risk of u falling flat on ur face is a 50/50 chance.)
  4. Don't bring your DSLR or whatever pro cams u hv. Bring a digi cam instead or a Go Pro! U don't wanna be carrying extra weight or risk damaging your $1k + cammy.
  5. Bring a bottle of water (This is a MUST!)
P.S. We got a good deal for this hike at SGD24/person! Don't go to the tourist booths u see along the roads. Cause they jack up the price by ALOT! We called the driver who rented us the car to help us arrange for this hike. So if you read my previous post, u wld know who to call (:

U must be thinking tt i'm crazy for wearing a spaghetti stripe. Like i mentioned earlier, once u start hiking, ur body will start to heat up & u will feel v warm. For me, i am a very heaty person. So my body heats up v quickly. Ppl who are cold use me as their heater. Hahaha no kidding. It actually helps. Lol.

There will be pit stops for u to rest if u need to.

Ard 6am+, we were 3/4 there! This is a pit stop for those who were too tired to climb & js wanna busk in the magnificent sunrise & watch the display of colours go by. If not, there is another 3km or so up to the final destination right on top of the mountain.

When our 2 other friends finally came down, we were shocked to see a whole crowd following behind. She has a old knee injury & in the midst of coming down the mountain, some guy was running down & accidentally pushed a huge boudler tt hit her ankle. As a result, she cldn't walk & it started swelling.

They carried her down until the path was clear & took her on a motorcycle down.

Nothing beats walking down this path w R. Knowing he will be there to catch u when u fall. Holding my hand & looking at me making sure i'm okay every once in a while. I cldn't be any happier creating this memory w him. I will ALWAYS rmbr this day. For i was filled w content walking side by side w my love.
