#1 of 7 in Things to do in Jambi
Mount Kerinci is the highest volcano in Indonesia, and the highest peak on the island of Sumatra. It is surrounded by the lush forest of Kerinci Seblat National Park, home to the endangered species of Sumatran tiger and Sumatran rhinoceros.GeographyKerinci is located in the border of the titular Kerinci Regency of Jambi province and South Solok Regency of West Sumatra province, in the west central part of the island near the west coast, and is about 130km south of Padang. It is part of the Barisan Mountains, a chain of volcanoes that span from the extreme northwest of the island (in Aceh province) all the way to the extreme southeast (in Lampung province). It is the most prominent feature of the terrain of Kerinci Seblat National Park, with pine-forested slopes rising 2,400-3,300 metres above the surrounding basin, and a cone 13km wide and 25km long at the base, elongated in the north-south direction. At the summit there is a deep 600m wide crater, often partially filled by a small crater lake on the northeast side of the crater floor.

    Kerinci belongs to Kerinci Regency of Jambi, right? It's not belongs to Solok, West Sumatera. That's why its name is Mount Kerinci, not Mount Solok.
