The Batang Hari (Sungai Batanghari) is the longest river in Sumatra,[1] Indonesia. It originates in the Minangkabau Highlands, home of the Minangkabau people, and flows to the east coast of Sumatra. Trans-Sumatran Highway (AH25) crosses the river at the city of Jambi which is located near the mouth of the river.
