- Making my mind to embark on this journey
You can book this trek from any place in Bali and usually the adventure companies provide hotel pickup and dropping services. I left the trek towards the end of my visit as I was staying in Ubud and it is closer from there. However, as I was not sure if it would be safe to climb a mountain due to rain predictions, I was still contemplating whether or not should I do it. And also, due to limited time in hand, I had either option of sunrise trekking or chasing waterfalls, which I wanted to do as well. However, just one day before I was supposed to catch my flight back to Sydney, I decided that such opportunities may come only once, and I should go for the trek as I had already seen a lot of waterfalls in Sydney. Climbing a mountain at the middle of the night was something I had never done before.
- Where did I book the trek from?
I booked the trek from one of the adventure activities company in Ubud market and there are plenty of them. They quoted 500,000 rupiah for two people, however, I negotiated the price and we settled on 300,000 rupiah for two. This included pick up, drop off, guide, water, the entrance fees, and morning breakfast.
