Some parts of the trail are steep and slippery and unstable in extreme weather because the path is not very well maintained conpared to other more developed countries. Hence although the hike does not require special technical skills there are many spots where accidents can happen.

Best moment: Reaching the peak because the that was when the weather and views were at theur best.

Least Enjoyed: Wading through deep patches of mud and slippery slopes.

Crews are friendly and hospitality. Especially when the moment we hiking, greater chance to get to know other peoples. Better guidance to us and we enjoyed it.

Best moment: Kerinci Base Camp and Danau Gunung Tujuh. There’s greatest breathtaking ever and able to take drone photos for my memories.

Least enjoyed: Kerinci Summit, due to cloudly which less visions and unable to take an aerial photos.
