We went there for 2D1N for the total duration of the climb. The climb itself was rewarding. Although the first part of the journey through the rainforest was a little boring and tiring, the summit climb was wonderful. The trail gets quite slippery when it...More

Visited here on a tour through western Sumatra, and was lucky enough to have clear views on both the evening of arrival and the morning of departure. Tea plantations around the area give some great photo opportunities around the base of a classic cone volcano.

Its a day's drive from padang and recommended to prearrange transport. Try searching for kerinci guides online, there are a few notable ones who will be able to assist (they do guiding for the lake as well). Hope this helps.
