Due to the volcanic nature of the area, many hot springs are scattered around the valley. The most famous ones are in the village of Semurup, where locals like to boil eggs in the hot water, and bathe in the nearby bath houses. Site 1 in Semurup is the more visited of the sites, however, the second site, “Air Panas Situs 2” is larger, more natural, and more interesting. The village of Sungai Medang also has hot springs and bathing facilities.
One of the more impressive, and undisturbed hot springs can be found at the foot of Mt. Kunyit, near the village of Talang Kemuning. More difficult to reach are the Grao Sakti hot springs, near the forest enclave of Renah Kemumu, deep within the Kerinci Seblat National Park and about a 15 hour hike from the village of Lempur in the south. Another site, to the west of Gunung Kerinci, is equally impressive, but takes about three days journey through the rainforest to reach, along treacherous mountain ridges. More photos here.
