The history of Mount Batur dates back thousands of years. Located in Batur town, Kintamani District, Bali, Indonesia, Mount Batur stands at an elevation of 1,717 meters above sea level. It is a stratovolcano and an active volcano within two concentric calderas, situated northwest of Mount Agung.
The larger caldera, measuring 10×13 kilometers, contains a beautiful caldera lake on its southeast side. The inner caldera, with a diameter of 7.5 kilometers, was formed during the eruption of the Bali (or Ubud) ignimbrite around 23,670 to 28,500 years ago.
Lake Batur covers the southeastern part of the inner caldera, while the Batur cone has developed within the inner caldera, reaching a height above the outer caldera rim. The Batur stratovolcano has numerous vents scattered throughout the caldera, with the Batur I, II, and III craters aligned along the summit ridge.
Throughout its history, Mount Batur has had intermittent eruptions characterized by mild to moderate explosive activity and occasional lava flows. Basaltic lava flows from both summit and flank vents have reached the caldera floor and the shores of Lake Batur.
The most notable eruption of Mount Batur occurred in 1968, leaving a visible lava field that can still be observed from the town of Kintamani, situated on the southwest edge of the larger caldera.
Historically, the volcano has experienced 25 mild to moderate strombolian eruptions, with lava flows recorded in 1849, 1888, 1904, 1905, 1921, 1926, 1963, 1968, and 1974. The volcano continues to be monitored closely due to its active nature.

Visiting Mount Batur was an incredible experience. The hike to the summit was challenging but totally worth it. The panoramic views from the top were breathtaking, especially during sunrise. The sight of the caldera and Lake Batur below was simply mesmerizing. Our guide was knowledgeable and ensured our safety throughout the trek. The volcanic landscape was awe-inspiring, and we even witnessed some steam vents. The experience of being so close to an active volcano was truly exhilarating. I highly recommend including Mount Batur in your Bali itinerary for a memorable adventure.
