4D3N PEKANBARU – MINANGKABAU TOUR (1N PEKANBARU, 2N BUKITTINNGGI)

Kelok 9 or Kelok Sembilan is a winding road section located about 30 km east of Payakumbuh City, West Sumatra towards Riau Province. This road stretches for 300 meters in Jorong Ulu Air, Nagari Harau/Kenagarian Ulu Air Preparation, Harau District, Limapuluh Kota Regency, West Sumatra, and is part of the road connecting the Central Sumatra Cross and the East Coast of Sumatra. This road has sharp bends and is about 5 meters wide, borders a ravine, and is flanked by two hills between two nature reserves: the Air Putih Nature Reserve and the Harau Nature Reserve.

Around the road of Kelok 9, a 2.5 km long flyover has been built. This bridge stretches along two steep hill walls with concrete pillars varying in height, reaching 58 meters. Counting, this bridge crosses back and forth over the hill six times. This bridge was inaugurated by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in October 2013 although it has been opened several times to support the Eid homecoming flow and the implementation of the Tour de Singkarak two years ago.
