Gunung Daik is the highest point of Lingga island off the east coast of Sumatra. It is a very striking mountain, with three jagged peaks. The highest is Daik, the middle Pejantan and the lower of the three is named Cindai Menangis. Nobody has ever reached the highest peak because it is a very serious rock climb. The highest peak of the mountain gives the island its name – linggam is Sanskrit for ‘phallus’.
