Mount Kerinci was the highest volcano in Indonesia. It’s located in Jambi province on Sumatera Island and was part of the Kerinci Seblat National Park in Bukit Barisan Mountains. It was home to the endangered species of Sumatran Tiger. Besides the mountain, it also have beautiful lakes in the vicinity. One of the most popular is Gunung Tujuh Lake surrounded by the pristine jungle of the national park, perfect habitat for many animals and of course the Sumatran Tiger. Sadly the jungle area of Mount Kerinci was reduced due to the plantation made by the people.
