Sumatra: ascent of the Kerinci volcano

The highest point in Sumatra, the Kerinci volcano (3,805 m) is also the highest volcano in Indonesia. Its ascent is carried out in two days, largely through thick jungle, and your efforts will be rewarded by a superb panorama at sunrise, since Kerinci dominates seven other peaks and no less than 15 high altitude lakes, including the “Gunung Tujuh”, which, at 1,996 meters above sea level, is the highest lake in Southeast Asia.
