Mount Kerinci is a volcano located on the island of Java, Indonesia. It is the highest peak in Indonesia and one of the highest volcanoes in the world. Mount Kerinci is also known as Gunung Kerinci or Mount Kuyung (Kuyung meaning “fiery”).
The volcano has erupted several times since it was formed during the last Ice Age. The most recent eruption occurred in 1883, when lava flows were seen on top of the mountain. In 1923, Mount Kuyung erupted again and covered an area of about 1 km2 with lava flows that reached up to 300 m thick at some points.
The volcano is most famous for being the resting place of Prambanan Temple, which was built before 1000 AD by Hindu monks during the reign of King Jayanegara from Majapahit Kingdom. Mera Peak, Ama Dablam, Island peak and Aconcagua, K2, Everest, Manaslu are some amazing mountain to climb.
Mount Kerinci was declared a national park in 1969, which makes it one of the oldest national parks in Indonesia.
Mount Kerinci can be climbed from November to February, depending on the weather conditions. The best time to climb Mount Kerinci is during January and February when there are less chances of rain or snowfall. If you want to climb Mount Kerinci during this period then you need to get up early before sunrise and be prepared for bad weather conditions such as strong winds and heavy rains during your climb up this beautiful mountain range which will make it difficult for you to reach its peak summit later on that day itself due to its steep slopes and rocky terrain upon reaching its summit point where many glaciers have formed over time due to its frequent eruptions throughout history
