Day 05: Volcano Trekking - Samosir

Sibayak is a 2172-meter tall volcano close to the hill town of Berastagi. It is an easily accessible volcano and can be explored by anyone in reasonably good shape. There are 2 different routes to the volcano’s crater, and we take the route from Jaranguda, just 3 km from Berastagi. The view is best just after sunrise, so it will be an early tour. We pick you up from your hotel by car, and transfer you to just half an hour to the beginning of the climb. An hour later, you should have reached the top. The first part of the walk is over a broad and steep road surrounded by green forest. Sometimes you can hear the calling of the black siamang and gibbon. After a short while, you walk through a narrow path surrounded by mountain vegetation. On the last path, you will walk between rocks and when you arrive at the crater, you can see sulfur puffing from vents. When you descend, you can either choose the same way you came up, or you can go through Raja Berneh, where you can soak your sore muscles in the hot springs. Afterwards, the trip continues by crossing Lake Toba and onward to Samosir.
