North Sumatra

Trip Planner Asia  /  Indonesia  /  Sumatra  /  North Sumatra
Volcanic activity has left a wealth of terrains and topography in North Sumatra, the second most populated province in the country. The region boasts the world's largest volcanic lake, waterfalls, and numerous islands. Because of the affinity to the water, visitors come to take part in a diverse range of activities like surfing, snorkeling, and birdwatching. Inland, traditional Malay homes in small settlements showcase rustic architecture alongside more formal and ornate Buddhist temples. The main urban areas provide an introduction to the multicultural history of the nation. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: North Sumatra and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
