Dangers & Annoyances

Be wary of touts on motorcycles, who will attempt to steer you to a tour or hotel of their choice as you descend into the Danau Batur area from the village of Penelokan. Very persistent, they offer no service of value and you should ignore them. Vendors in the area can be aggressive.


Services are limited in the Gunung Batur area, but there are a few ATMs along Jl Raya Penelokan.
