Mount Marapi is a complex volcano located in West Sumatra. It is one of the two mountains rising south of the city of Bukittinggi, the other being Singgalang. Its lower slopes are covered by a buxom rainforest and higher near its top an extraterrestrial-like volcanic plateau where great views are to be marveled at. It bears the great honor of being regarded as the most active volcano in Sumatra. It is currently (as for May 2016) erupting and has been in a state of alert since 2011. There is one main route (a second, much longer and demanding one, has been opened recently ascending from the north and it’s rarely used) ascending up to the crater complex from the west slope of the mountain. The trail is straightforward and extremely easy to follow, making it possible for anybody to climb independently. It should take anywhere between 4 and 8 hours to reach the crater complex. The highest point of the mountain, Puncak Garuda, lies in dense forest at the northeastern extension of the mountain and there is no trail leading thither. Thus, most commonly people will only reach as far as the crater complex.
