The route of Pasar Agung starting point. This starting point is the shortest one. Pasar Agung Sebudi Temple has the altitude of 1,525. the climb starts at Pasar Agung Temple (1563m altitude), heading steeply and directly straight up a lush rainforest. The forest steadily thins and the trail becomes a “route”-finding the best way around small rock obstacle, slippery zones and what will either be running or dry stream beds depending on recent weather and the season. It gets progressively steeper and more exposed, with the technical difficulty culminating in a 20 meter long traverse of a ridge line, climbing a 3 meter rock step section over dark, crumbly solidified lava and then ending dramatically at the moon-like crater rim and it 100 meter high cliffs of deep red and orange rock, spiraling into the abyss. From the highest point there are sweeping views of the entire island with the deep blue sea stretching 360o along the horizon. The trip takes around 3,5 – 4,5 hours ascend to the top, and the descend also takes the same time. The distance is 4 km one way with different altitude 1,400 meters heights.
If you stay in Kuta, Seminyak, Legian, Sanur, Ubud, pick up time will be at midnight. If you stay in Nusa Dua, pick up time be at 11 pm.
This route is quite harder than the first route. There is apparently a junction point at roughly 2500m where an alternate route, marked with red and white dots, traverses out far left and eventually turns back to join the Besakih trail to the summit.
From the top of the route at the crater rim, scramble left mostly directly on what quickly become in places a knife-edge ridge-line with constant and deadly exposure on the right as well as left sides and picking through sometime very crumbly, unstable rock (French grade3), until around 2 meters high blocks the main ridge-line. It can be turned by down climbing and finding a notch to climb through (French grade 4) to get back again on the crater rim. You are then blocked by a very impressive gendarme which can be turned on mostly stables and good quality rock. Once on the left stables and good quality rock. Once on the left side of this, pick your way through very steep slabs with a few small cracks and chimneys until you’re back on the crater rim (French grade ¾).
This new alternative route takes around 5-6 hours to the ascend and the descend takes the same time with distance of 5 km in one way. The difference of height is 1,600 meters from the starting point.
If you stay in Kuta, Seminyak, Legian, Sanur, Ubud, pick up time will be at 10 pm. If you stay in Nusa Dua and Jimbaran, pick up will be at 9 pm.
