Located about an hour drive north of Ubud, Mount Batur is Bali's most active volcano, so check around to see if it safe to climb. There are many local guides who will take you to the top, usually starting around 4am to see the sunrise. You can also choose to go on your own, but expect to get harassed some by the pushy guides who feel entitled to force visitors pay them for their (mostly unnecessary) services.

It was a steep climb (which apparently there are multiple ways to get up)... took a couple of hours and was very cold at the top. It was a great view, but limited due to fog. I would recommend! Oh, and they use steam from the volcano to cook hard boiled eggs. Pretty neat.
