Mount Batur (1717 meters above sea level) in Kintamani District, Bangli Regency, is one of the most popular mountains in the context of climbing/trekking tourism in Bali as an international destination. This mountain is very exotic because it has stunning sunrise views, lake views, and many other exotic things. Every day there are about 300 visitors coming up the mountain. For the sake of safety in trekking/climbing, the tourists must be guided by local trekking/climbing guides, especially for those consisting of more than three (tourists). Mount Batur is increasingly popular because today Mount Agung in Karangasem Regency as the highest mountain in Bali is still erupting. This research was carried out in a qualitative approach using several related social and critical theories. The research found that the success of the social entrepreneurship is because the involvement of the local people around the mountain becomes a trekking/climbing guides. In fact, they have good institution with a good management named Perhimpunan Pemandu Pendakian Gunung Batur (PPPGB or P3GB) involving more than three hundred people from several villages around the mountain. This organization works very well. All of this makes a kind of practice (or "culture") from local people in guiding the tourists up to the top of the mountain. They have several economic benefits in doing the job which means that they can tranform the natural capital (the beauty of the volcano) into an economic capital
