Gunung Batur

Getting there and away


Perama shuttles service Kintamani on the caldera rim only by request and your own transport is then needed for your journey to Kedisan or Toya Bungkah. It is however possible with some determination to arrive in the caldera by public transport, but services are irregular.

Bemos travel frequently to Kintamani on the caldera rim and are available from Singaraja Penarukan terminal (20,000 rupiah), Gianyar (30,000 rupiah) and Denpasar Batubulan terminal (30,000 rupiah).

From Kintamani, the descent into the caldera is possible by public transport, but as services are infrequent, it may be necessary to charter a bemo with costs nearing 100,000 rupiah for a journey to Toya Bungkah.
