// Kepulauan Riau

The Riau islands lie between Sumatra, Borneo and mainland Asia. Daik is a fantastic peak with rocky spires so difficult to climb that nobody has done so yet. Jantan is a straightforward, short hike offering views to Singapore and mainland Malaysia. Ranai is the most isolated Ribu but also the Ribu closest to an airport.
