The population of the island sees the Agung as the "navel of the world", the geographical and religious center of the world. Agung is best climbed in the period from July to October. The climb is quite difficult, long and can be dangerous. Hiring a guide is therefore strongly recommended. There are three general routes used to climb the mountain; one from the south, a second from the east and another from the west. This latter route is most commonly taken because the starting point is at Pura Besakih (famous temple). The best time to climb the Agung is morning, so the sky is clear and you have breathtaking views.
