    We did the sunset hike with Lou. She took us safely to the top and back and even held my hand when necessary. The hike is demanding but not too difficult and the view on top is totally worth it. It is breathtaking. Because it was the sunset and not the sunrise hike we were all together only 7 people on top. We can absolutely recommend this experience.

    I got picked up at a reasonable time at 1:20 pm. Our driver Teja was very nice and a safe ride. After the inevitable stop at a coffee plantation we got to the base where we met our guide Lou. We started walking at around 4 pm with a perfect group size of three + guide. Lou was very friendly and made us feel safe all the way up and down. The light at the top was very beautiful and made for some great photos. The scenery is really amazing. The picknick consisted of egg toast prepared in the hot steam of the volcano plus fruit and chocolate. The descend in the dark was easier than I anticipated. Great experience, I highly recommend taking this tour! Don't pressure yourself for the morning tour, sunset was great. Plus, there are way less people on the top we, we met a total of 10 including guides! (Mornings can be a few hundred!) And the group sizes are way better. And not getting out of bed at 1 am was a big plus for me.

    Really enjoyable trip, our guide ‘Karme/karma’ was very good, really interesting, sharing stories about the volcano, history and Bali in general. Also well prepared and helpful. The summit was cloudy on the day so we didn’t get to see the sunset but some of us views on the way up were amazing
