The best time to visit Mount Batur is between April to September. The temperature during this period is around 25 to 30 degrees, most suitable for trekking. The month of October sees heavy rainfall in the region that's why the trek becomes more difficult. Winter period could also be difficult for trekking activities.

Before you start to trek Mount Batur, there are certain things you must know:
Essential things to carry while trekking: A small water bottle, a torch or even a headlamp as you’re going to trek in the night and light will be needed, a small backpack to keep all your important gadgets. Make sure to carry a waterproof backpack and gears. You can also keep small snacks like biscuits or sandwiches on the go.
What to wear on the trek: Go for comfortable and stretchable outfits that you'd probably wear to the gym. Most important thing is to wear proper trekking shoes or trainers. Make sure your shoes have a nice grip so that you won't slip away as the grass at the night can be slippery. Also, if your skin is sensitive and you get rashes very easily then prefer wearing clothes which covers your body properly.
Camera equipment is highly recommended as you won't want to miss capturing the scenic beauty at the top. Keep your DSLR, GoPro, and phones handy. No need to bring tripods as it might get a little tricky to carry them.
