Mount Sibayak, Berastagi
(4.6/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Climb to the top of Mount Sibayak for panoramic views of North Sumatra. Anyone of average fitness can manage the trek, which takes about five hours if you climb straight up, or a little longer if you set off through the jungle from a nearby waterfall. You can also take a minibus part of the way up the volcano if you prefer a shorter two-hour climb. At the summit of this stratovolcano is a small crater lake, colored bright green due to the sulfurous gases that seep into it. On the way down, take a dip in the hot springs. Wear sturdy shoes, bring warm clothes, and be prepared for sudden changes of weather. You won't need a guide unless you take the jungle route, but you may still wish to consider one if you are inexperienced or visiting alone.

  • Written to the entrance of Mt. Sibayak KAMA green minibus at 3,000 rupiah. Admission was 4,000 rupiah. [(1) rolling road entrance: 1 hour walk. You don't want walk without a minibus can be chartered. Privately-owned cars and motorcycles is passable. (1) the later [(2) steep paved] 20 minutes walk. Climb to the top in many stores, sells water and sweets here. (2) of the [(3) trail paved with no] walk 30 minutes. Because of bad weather in the rainy season to be muddy shoes slipped, dirty clothes are made in the was. I was surprised though local youths is climbing in sandals. You could go on the road one minute there are sulfur. In this area we put tents. Partly due to bad weather in the rainy season, could see nothing in the fog. So embarrassed is if the is no longer can rely on the map correspond to this map I downloaded the application, proceeding in fog, but is bad and the rain is getting heavier end of climbing here! It is recommended to climb, if you can not rain season and weather permitting. If I was a road in fog with rain as there was enough 味waemashita a sense of achievement and satisfaction.
