The unvegetated summit of 3800-m-high Gunung Kerinci in central Sumatra, Indonesia's highest volcano, is seen from Pengamatan on its southern flank. Kerinci is one of the most active volcanoes in Sumatra and has been the source of numerous moderate explosive eruptions since its first recorded eruption in 1838.
