It is possible to hike to the lake near the top of ‘Bukit’ Daun as it is known locally from the Curup side. It could probably be done in 2 days by experienced and fit hikers (apparently it is roughly 7 hours up from ‘pintu rimba’ (forest entrance) at PT Agro Tea Lebong and 6 hours back down). The lake is about 350m wide at its widest and there is a peak to the north of the lake with a height of 2,440m and a peak to the south of the lake with a height of 2,467m. However, these eastern peaks are both lower than the true summit which is over 3 kilometres away to the west and is much less frequented. It may be known as Gunung Hulupalik. No eruptions are known to have occurred in recent times. Daun is situated in the middle of a sparsely-populated, protected forest area.
- Getting there: 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.
