The province of Jambi lies on the east coast of central Sumatra. The capital is Jambi city and the area is served by Sultan Thaha airport. However, to reach the excellent Gunung Kerinci, it is a better option to fly to Padang in West Sumatra province.

Gunung Tujuh is well-known as the neighbour to Sumatra’s highest peak, Gunung Kerinci (which itself is on the border with West Sumatra). The other peaks of Masurai, Sumbing (Sumatera) and Raya are all excellent mountains but not very commonly climbed except by local people due to their remoteness.
