Mount Agung

Mount Agung is the highest and holiest mountain in this island.

It is believe as a place of gods. It stands 3,142 meters from sea level. This occasionally active volcano (the last major eruption occurred in 1963 with devastating results) stands at 3,014 meters. Bali's most sacred temple, Besakih actually sits on its slope. The adventurous traveler can attempt to climb the volcano between July and October. Be sure to hire a guide, as the route is long, difficult and dangerous.
