Arrival in Sidemen
The moment that you arrive in this beautiful green valley and settle into your cottage, you’ll feel instantly at home. You’ll stay in a small-scale spiritual resort offering all kinds of meditation and yoga, so feel free to plunge straight in. From your resort, you can follow the path down to the river for a refreshing swim in the cool water that flows from the volcanic mountains.
Gunung Agung Trek & Departure
You’ll be up well before dawn to trek to the summit of Mount Agung for sunrise. The hike starts from the Pasar Agung temple, with prayers to ask the gods to bless your climb and prepare you for entering the spiritual hub of the whole island. From here, you’ll follow a steep and winding path through the trees. As you get above the tree line, you’ll climb over large boulders and scree as you approach the summit.
As daylight slowly breaks, you’ll get closer to the peak and your efforts will be rewarded with a sunrise to really remember. You’ll grab a bite for breakfast as day breaks, with spectacular views over Bali and Lombok from the summit, and you’ll also get a chance to glimpse inside the volcano crater.
The next day, after a well earned rest, you’ll gather your things and get ready to hit the road again.
Optional day trip
Go Zen in Sidemen
After your trek you can go zen in Sidemen during a 1 hour yoga and meditation session with the lush, green rice paddies as your backdrop. This quiet valley is the perfect place for some peace and tranquillity where you can truly feel at one with nature, and recover from the exertion.
