This is an adventurous and physical climb with amazing scenery. Climbed with Endatno Een from Kersik Tua who is a great motivator and full of knowledge about the mountain. Saw lots of langur monkeys and siamang. Incredible view from the summit. Contact endatno@gmail.com for a very fair price for 2 day climb.

Thank antoryno

As the highest mount in Sumatera, Mount Kerinci has its own story and mystery. One of the mystery is the existence of mysterious tribe of Uhang Pandak or Orang Pendek (the Short People)

Mount Kerinci is the highest volcano in Indonesia. I have done 5 active volcanoes in Indonesia and this was my sixth one. The trail was challenging and the weather made it more challenging as it started raining and wind was at 40-50 km/h speed while we were close to summit. Nonetheless, it was an amazing experience. Our local guide, Rapani... More

MT. KERINCI ADVENTURE Towering over the Sumatran landscape, Mt. Kerinci demands respect. At 3805 meters tall, it’s the highest active volcano in Southeast Asia, and even rises above the iconic Mt. Fuji in Japan. Trekking up its forested slopes, protected in the Kerinci Seblat National Park, is extremely challenging as there are no switchbacks – it’s just straight up to... More

Mount Kerinci's charm lies in its serenity and natural beauty. We climbed in end November and barely met 10 other tourists. The trail was pretty steep from shelter 2 onwards and the summit climb was especially challenging due to the rain and strong winds. However, the views of Gunung Tujuh and Gunung Tujuh Lake were absolutely worth it. I highly... More

Mount Kerinci is the highest volcano in Indonesia and the highest Indonesian peak outside Papua (Irian Jaya). Much of the Kerinci Seblat National Park is located in the province of Jambi but the mountain itself is on the border with West Sumatra. We are listing it as being in Jambi because local people regard Kerinci as a region of Jambi... More
