Mount Kerinci

Reviewed By Terry L - Perth, Australia

Visited here on a tour through western Sumatra, and was lucky enough to have clear views on both the evening of arrival and the morning of departure. Tea plantations around the area give some great photo opportunities around the base of a classic cone volcano.

Muaro Jambi Temple Complex

Reviewed By Wulan_Dewi - Jakarta, Indonesia

In my short business trip, I tried hard to arrange my time to visit this temple. I read before about it and curious.
In short I must say that this temple is very unique and made me want to come back again next time.
Unique because it were made from red bricks. Not like Javanesee temple or other temple in South East Asia that were made from andesite rocks.
Unique because it's still on progress to be renovated. Some archeologist are still working there. I am very curious to know the true story behind it.
The government maintains it with a good quality. Clean and peaceful. May be because I visited here early in the morning around 8 am and in working day not weekend or holiday. I saw some canteens inside the complex. Better they are not there, so the park will be focused only for temples or religions ritual activity.
This ia a complex of temples. Unfortunately I only visited 4 temples. I must go back here again.

Gentala Arasy Pedestrian Bridge

Reviewed By Rendra H - Jakarta, Indonesia

It's a unique bridge across the Batanghari river at the center of the Jambi city. What makes it unique is because it's not a straight bridge like the normally seen, but has a curved pattern. There are many hawker food near the bridge with seats facing the river. It's a must visit landmark when in Jambi.

Agung Al Falah Mosque

Reviewed By Raymond W - Chengdu, China

Sumatra has some fabulous natural scenery, but its cities have a dire reputation with travelers. We would argue that Padang and Palembang repay patient exploration, but we will make no defense of Jambi. Though this city dates back centuries, it has nothing to show for its long history and the city centre is notable mostly for its proliferation of concrete shop-houses.
Probably the best building in town is the city mosque, also known as Agung Al Falah Mosque. Yet that is faint praise in a town as drab as Jambi. Built on the former site of the Sultan of Jambi's palace (which the Dutch blasted to smithereens), the mosque does little to evoke the city's long history. The original mosque was built in 1885 but a massive 'restoration' in the 1960s replaced it with a concrete version. The numerous slender poles on the veranda are the best feature of this overall unimpressive structure.

Seven Mountain Lake

Reviewed By MOHD ASHRAF N

Lake Gunung Tujuh (Indonesian: Danau Gunung Tujuh) is a volcanic crater lake in the province of Jambi, Indonesia, located within Kerinci National Park. The name "Danau Gunung Tujuh" translates as "Seven Mountain Lake," a seeming reference to seven peaks comprising the forested rim. The tallest of them rises 2732m above sea level, while the lake surface sits at 1950m. The lake is the highest Lake is South East Asia.
We started at the foot of the mountain range at about 9am. The hike took us around 3 hours until we reach the lake. The lake is very cold and amazingly, there are no large fish available because the water temperature is unsuitable. Local fisherman trap small but delicious anchovies-like fish. There are also crabs along the lake shores. The view of the mountain ranges surrounding the lake is magnificent.
We paid a local fisherman about 40000 rupiah to take us to the middle of the lake and to encircle half of the lake's shoreline. It was an amazing experience. We didn't swim in the lake because the water temperature was too cold for us but there are other groups of teens who enjoyed themselves splashing in the water. We took about 2 hours to reach the foot of the mountain.

Lake Kaco

Reviewed By yudhaysp - Jakarta, Indonesia

Start dari Kersik Tuo, pasca mendaki Mt. Kerinci esoknya langsung menuju danau ini. What an amazing trip. Sepanjang jalan dikelilingi oleh pegunungan yg indah, dalam kawasan Bukit Barisan. Melewati kota Sungai Penuh, lalu lanjut ke Danau Kerinci yg selalu terlihat awan beterbangan. Sampai di Ds. Lempur, bayar tiket masuk 10k/kepala yg sepertinya bersifat illegal (tiket cetakan sendiri). Dari sini perjalanan baru dimulai menuju Danau. Jangan dibayangkan, perjalannya seperti penjelajahan pramuka. Medan beragam mulai dari berlumpur, hutan lebat, hutan bambu, sungai deras yg jembatannya hanya batang pohon yg melintang, dan jalan terjal dengan tangga batang-batang besar yg hampir lapuk. Dan suara berbagai hewan hutan yg indah dan ngeri-ngeri sedap. Setelah 2-3 jam perjalanan, sampailah di Danau biru super jernih mempesona indah tak terkira. Benar, perjuangan itu sepadan dgn keindahan Danau Kaco. satu lagi surga tersembunyi di tanah Jambi. Selengkapnya bisa dilihat di gambar.

Berhala Island

Reviewed By vacationku - Pekanbaru

pulau yang sangat indah untuk dikunjungi dengan pantai yang sangat indah dan spot melihat sunset yang sempurna.
ada penginapan semacam home stay yang dikelola oleh warga setempat.
untuk mencapai ke Pulau Berhala, kita harus ke Nipah Panjang terlebih dahulu yang menempuh waktu sekitar 3 jam dari kota Jambi. kemudian dilanjutkan naek kapal cepat sekitar 45 menit.
kapal di sini banyak pilihan dan tinggal nego harga ke pemilik kapal.
tidak ada rute regular ke Pulau Berhala, cuma ada sistem charter.
