Sumatra sits on the equator in the easternmost waters of the Indian Ocean, a long narrow island running northwest to southeast. Along its western coast, the Barisan Range covers nearly the entire 1000-mile length of the island. The Barisan is a volcanic range with hundreds of jungle-covered volcanoes rising throughout. The highest mountain, Mount Kerinchi (12,467 ft.), rises from the center of the range.
