Mount Kerinci Trekking Package & Tour Information

mount kerinci

Gunung Kerinci (also known as Indrapura) is the highest peak of the island of Sumatra and the highest volcano in Indonesia. It’s also one of the major fire mountains in the Pacific Ring Of Fire.

It is located in the Barisan Mountain Range at the northwest end of Kerinci Valley and towers around 2600m above the Kayu Aro plateau, where the tea plantations make you feel like in the Darjeeling.

The massive is at its bottom 13 x 25 km wide. The main crater on top covers an older cone that stayed in the southwest direction of the actual one, is open, around 600m deep, and sulfured water steam comes out. Often it shows a small lake at the northwest end of the main crater floor.

Kerinci is a Stratovolcano and its birth is in historical times, estimated around 23 Mio years ago. The lava type is Andesite. The first recorded activity was in 1838 and the most recent one in 2009, unseen the persistent activity as dome building and degradation. The explosive activity cata- pulted nice volcanic bombs out which you may find in the upper part of the cone.
