Entering the Kerinci Regency in the province of Jambi, one will be greeted by the lush beauty of nature. Rows of mountains and hills on the horizon, fresh green rice paddies, and the frsh breeze blowing in your hair will definitely indulge those who are fortunate enough to set foot here. The best place to experience the rare beauty of Kerinci’s nature is at the Bukit Kayangan.
Simply translated as “the heavenly hill”, this is the perfect spot to admire the mesmerizing natural spectacle of the Kerinci regency: here are flocks of goats quietly grazing, farmers and buffaloes plowing the fields, and mountain ridges gallantly standing on the horizon, Bukit Kayangan is truly a sanctuary for those who seek peace and serenity far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The hill lies 1,500 meters above sea level and offers a panoramic view looking down on the grand landscape of the Kerinci Regency and the town of Sungaipenuh. When initially, only a lone gazebo stood on top of the hill to marvel at the view, but since 2013, a park complete with facilities has been added to the area.
It takes an 8-10 hours' drive from Jambi City, capital of Jambi Province, before you reach Sungaipenuh town, which is the hub of the Kerinci Regency. From there it is another 30 minute's drive to Bina Karya Village, before you reach Bukit Kayangan.
