About the event

Not only is Mount Kerinci both the tallest point on Sumatra and Indonesia’s highest non-Papuan peak, at 3805m above sea level, it’s also the highest volcano in Southeast Asia. In fact, in all of Asia, only Iran and Russia have higher volcanoes. The climb, too, is fantastic. For almost the entire trek you’ll find yourself under the rainforest canopy, with loads of wildlife viewing and bird watching opportunities until you reach the scree at the very top – where the views are out of this world. This is in contrast to the much more popular (thanks to its proximity to Bali) Mt. Rinjani, where the trek is mostly in grassland under the hot sun with little wildlife–although it’s still a fantastic trek in its own right. This is the best alternative to Mount Rinjani and also one of the best training peaks for Kilimanjaro and Everest BC.
