|Danau Kaco Lempur|
To the Lake
Optional Day 2
Activities: Hiking, Swimming
Terrain: Forest Trails, Hutan Adat (customary production forests)
Duration: 1 Day (Optional overnight)
Months of Operation: Year Round, but usually somewhat drier from May – September
Location: Danau Kaco
Nearest Town: Lempur
Conditions: The trail to the lake is pretty flat, but especially muddy in wetter seasons. Also be prepared for land leeches, which can be abundant here. Leech socks (gators) can help, but you will still be tagged a few times. The ick-factor is high at first, but you get used to them pretty quickly.
Price includes a local guide, permits, lunch, and transport within Kerinci to and from the trail head. Price per person reduced with more than two travelers, but usually limited to a max of four people to lessen the impact on the environment.
