Mt Agung is Bali’s most highest and holiest peak! The name translates to Great Mountain and it is located in the north-east region of the island. As you may or may not know, Mt Agung is one of the largest and most active volcanoes in all of Indonesia.
If you’re an early bird like myself and want to experience an unforgettable sunrise, I highly recommend taking an early drive to this amazing viewpoint of Mt Agung!

HOW TO GET TO MOUNT AGUNG SUNRISE VIEWPOINT
The journey time to get to the Mt Agung viewpoint at Bukit Cinta is a 2.5 hour drive from Denpasar. I left my accommodation at 4am to get to the viewpoint in time for the sunrise. You can either rent a car and driver for approximately 600,000 Rupiah for the day, which your accomodation can organise for you or you can rent a scooter for 50,000 Rupiah per day from one of the many scooter rental shops in the area.
This week I have based myself at Hotel Vila Lumbung, an ideally located resort in the lively hub of Seminyak. This resort has an amazing swimming pool, spa & wellness centre, in house restaurant, and boutique villas dotted around the beautiful gardens. You can CLICK HERE to see available rooms and rates.
When you arrive to Bukit Cinta I guarantee you will be astonished at this incredible view of Mt Agung. I hope these photos I took of this location inspire you to go and explore this awesome spot for yourselves.
