Needs more conservation preservation effort. No infrastructure to fund the efforts, Are the forests being cleared for tea plantations? Tigers or Tea?! I hope the Tigers win

The Kerinci Seblat National Park is accessible from different location, but the best one is from Sungai Penuh town. To be able to do the bird watching activity inside the park you should arrange the permit at the National Park office. The best time to do the birdwatching is in the morning, start from 0600 am, were you can spotted the Sumatran Trogon, Kerinci Bulbul, minivet, woodpecker, Barbet, broadbill, etc.

I visited many national park and in Sumatra is a big shame that the environment is completely full of trash dumped everywhere. You can hike Kerinci and Gunung tujuh by yourself ,it is impossible to get lost and it is not mandatory to have a guide to entry.When they told you it is obbligatory at your guesthouse it is only because they want to rip you off .I did alone and there is no danger in walk alone. The guides almost always are disrespectful about the environment as there are the first to leave the bin up there. You are paying a fee to government/rangers that goes in their pockets,animals and ambient are not protected .

I have been there in 2017 and it's a very beautiful place. The mountain Kerinci itself can be climbed by yourself, although local guides are preferable. Getting to the top and returning takes you two days - three if you take your time. There are three camping stations along the path. The highest one should be used for a night, to enjoy an astonishing sunrise on the top. Nice people, tasty and cheap food. 5 stars.

I went there in April 2017 and it was not suppose to rain! Unfortunately it did and the ground became really muddy. It was quite dangerous for those who lack trekking experience. Thankfully our group did rock climbing and so we were able to maneuver around branches and grab the rocks to make our way up to the 'higher base camp'. The summit push took 2 hours. It was definitely easier than Mt Rinjani since there was no gravel pushing you back! The view up there is gorgeous, especially when you summit halfway and look down. Simply magnificent! What a great day to celebrate Easter Sunday on the summit! All in all, I recommend 3 days 2 nights. This is so that it would not be so intense compared to a 2 days 1 night one. If you are lucky, you can spot many endangered wildlife. My trip was a 2 days 1 night and I barely made it since I just recovered from flu a few days before. Nonetheless, we were blessed to spot a siamang gibbon halfway through the trek. I recommend 3 days 2 night so that you can spend a day resting and bonding with your friends before summit push. Overall it was still good place for training for even higher montains
