Mount Kerinci is the highest volcano in Indonesia and the highest Indonesian peak outside Papua (Irian Jaya), it is surrounded by the lush forest of Kerinci Seblat National Park.


Easier access to Mount Kerinci is from Padang, the capital city of West Sumatra province. It is a 7 - 8 hours road journey from Padang Airport to the nearest accommodation to the Kerinci trail, at Kersik Tua (1,519m). Rainy season in between October to April, while May to September is mainly dry with some occasional rains, the temperature up in the mountain occasionally may drop to 5°C at nights.


Direct flights to Padang available daily from Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Batam, and Medan.


THE SUMMIT OF Mt. KERINCI (3,805 m asl)
The highest active volcano in South East Asia, reachable by 12 hours trekking up the mountain from Kersik Tuo (Day 1 starting in the early morning to the last camp (3,100 m asl) in 8 hours;  Day 2 continue hike up for 4 hours to the summit - total 12 hours).



Rainfall is heaviest between October-December and from February-April while May-August is mainly dry but with some occasional rains, there are no major variations in seasonal temperature. Photographers may wish to avoid the period July-August as these dry months are often hazy. Because much of the park is above 700m in altitude, evenings and nights tend to be cool while in the high mountains temperatures may occasionally drop as low as 5C at night and so trekkers should be prepared for cool evenings
