BUKIT CINTA VIEWPOINT IN BALI!
Bukit Cinta is hands-down the best viewpoint of Mount Agung, Bali’s highest and holiest peak that stands at 3,031 meters!
If you’re an early bird like me and want to experience an unforgettable sunrise, I highly recommend taking an early morning drive to the Mount Agung Sunrise Viewpoint at Bukit Cinta!
I have put together this complete guide of Mount Agung Sunrise Viewpoint at Bukit Cinta including how to get there and what to expect!
Have you got travel insurance for Bali? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents can happen and having World Nomads Insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong.
WHERE IS BUKIT CINTA
Bukit Cinta is located in the far east of Bali, close to the popular coastal town of Amed.
From Canggu, Seminyak or Kuta, it’s approximately a 2.5 hour drive to get to Bukit Cinta. If you happen to be in Ubud, it’s a shorter drive of around 2 hours to reach the Mount Agung viewpoint.
If you are heading out to East Bali I would consider staying in Amed for a night or two which is just 30 minutes drive to Bukit Cinta.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT BUKIT CINTA
When you arrive at the pin location of Bukit Cinta the viewpoint of Mount Agung is visible from the road, so you can’t miss it. I guarantee you will be in awe when you catch your first glimpse of Bali’s highest peak.
The Mount Agung sunrise viewpoint features a rolling hill, some banana trees and a field of long grass which is the best spot to take photos at Bukit Cinta.
If you are lucky enough to have a drone, be sure to get it up in the air to capture some different angles of Mount Agung and the expansive rice fields in the foreground. You will see two tall palm trees at the bottom of the hill at Bukit Cinta which makes for an epic drone shot.
Besides taking photos, there isn’t a whole lot more to do at Bukit Cinta other than marveling at the rays of light hitting the peak of Mount Agung as the sun rises in the east.
I hope these shots I took of this location inspire you to go and experience an unforgettable sunrise at Bukit Cinta for yourselves.
