Gunung Raya lies above the large Kerinci lake in Jambi province – a considerable distance from Gunung Kerinci but visible from the higher slopes of Gunung Kerinci. The road around the western side of Kerinci lake offers good views of the secondary peak Bukit Bemban (2,100m) before a glance back from your vehicle as it passes rivers and rice paddies will afford excellent views of Gunung Raya itself hiding behind. Some maps mistakenly name this mountain Gn Kerongsong. Another mountain in the area which is climbed is Bukit Kunyit which is about 2115m high and close to the beautiful translucent blue lake of Danau Kaco.
