It is possible to hike to the lake near the top of ‘Bukit’ Daun as it is known locally from the Curup side. Apparently it takes about 3 days up and down though it could probably be done in 2 days by experienced and fit hikers. The lake is about 350m wide at its widest and there is a peak to the north of the lake well over 2,400m. However, this eastern, lake peak is around 50 metres lower than the true summit which is over 3 kilometres away to the west and is much less frequented. No eruptions are known to have occurred in recent times. Daun is situated in the middle of a sparsely-populated, protected forest area.
Fly to Bengkulu or Lubuk Linggau and head up to Curup. Then on to the tea plantations at Desa Baru Manis where the trail to the lake and eastern peak begins.
Curup is the cloest town for those hiking up to the lake and eastern peak.
