About this Event

Mount Kerinci (3,805m) is the highest volcano in Indonesia, a challenging climb but yet not too technically difficult. It is a good hike to do in Indonesia while waiting for the other Java mountains to open after the rainy season.

This is a short trip primarily focused on summiting Mount Kerinci (3,805m). An additional day of relaxing at the beach, snorkeling and having fresh fish caught by the local fisherman can be added on also.

Mount Kerinci is part of the Kerinci Seblat National Park and is surrounded by lush forest and also home to the endangered species of the Sumatran tiger and rhinoceros. The closest city is Padang and it takes around 6-8 hour by vehicle to the village Kersik Tuo. The trek is a challenging 2D1N trek for people who are trying a multi-day volcano trek for the first time.

Who is this for?

This is for any beginner who wishes to step up from 1 day hikes and do multi-day treks. It is also a good prelude and exposure to a volcano trek and terrain (not so much volcanic scree).

In terms of mountains or hiking progression, if you have done only Malaysia treks, this is the next step for you. If you had done Mount Merbabu, this is the next mountain for you. This is slightly harder in difficulty to Mount Merbabu/Mount Ophir.

Although it is higher than Semeru/Rinjani, in terms of difficulty it is slightly easier than Semeru/Rinjani and is often hiked before attempting them.

Therefore, if you are looking for a rewarding trek or looking to try your first multi-day trek, this is for you. Beginners are welcomed, but a lot of perseverance is and willpower is required for this trek. Fitness will help a lot, if not to maximize success, it would be good to join the training sessions. Be prepared to walk at least 8h a day during the trek.
