Gunung Kerinci or Mount Kerinci is located on West sumatra closed to the city of Padang the capital city of West sumatra or known also as the land of Minangkabau. The island of sumatra has the mountain chain called Bukit Barisan means the procession of mountains or more precisely as mountain chain with many peaks along the chain which is around 1200 kms long. One peak is on west sumatra with dense tropical forest known as home of various wild animals such as the famous sumatran tiger, deer, wild pigs, and many kind of birds. A big flower called Raflesia is also can be found in the forest of this mountain. An adventure trip to Mount Kerinci can be organized from Padang city with the sample of itinerary as mentioned above. Most people taking this adventure trip would like to trace the tiger, but so far it is hard to be found since their population is believed to have been decreasing steadily due to the illegal hunting. To see the tiger one might have to be patient to stay for many nights peeping in the forest.
Our expert can explain how to see the tigers in their habitat.Kerinci Seblat is one of sumatra 's largest National Park, encompassing a 345 km long strip of mountainous uplands in the Bukit Barisan Range, parallel to the West Coast of sumatra. The scenery is among the most spectacular on the island, dominated by volcanic cones that include Mt. Kerinci at 3.800 meters high, the highest mountain in the west Indonesia. Altogether the park covers an area of almost 15.000 sq. km spread across four provinces; West sumatra, Jambi, Bengkulu and South sumatra. It was set up to preserve the unique habitats to the South of Lake Toba, in the same way that Gunung Leuser park preserves a representative portion of habitats north of the Lake. The massive volcanic eruption which formed Lake Toba about 100,000 years ago laid waste to such a vast area in between that a biological barrier was created separating populations in the northern and southern parts of the island.
Today there are significant differences between the wildlife of the two areas; the white-handed gibbon, for instance, only exists at the north of Lake Toba, while the dark handed gibbon is found only to the south. The same applies to many birds; 17 species live only to the north, while 10 are found only at the south of lake Toba. Kerinci Seblat is home to most of the largest sumatra mammals including rhinos, tigers, elephants, sun bears and tapirs, which only live in the south. It also has several endemic mammals, including Giant sumatra rat and the sumatra rabbit. The eagle serow, a black mountain goat, lives on forest inaccessible lime stone hills in the park, sometimes quite close to cultivated areas. Persistent stories of short, hairy people known as orang pendek exist among local people; it is possible that these tales arose from sightings of sun bears in the poor forest light, or from a folk memory of orangutans, which one lived in southern sumatra
