Located in northern Sumatra in Indonesia, Mount Sibayak is a majestic volcano rising to a height of 6870 feet and is one of the easiest climbs amongst the numerous volcanoes of the region. The summit offers excellent views of the town of Berastagi and the neighbouring countryside. These breathtaking views and the trek have been attracting tourists since the first Dutch settlements in the early 1900s.
Even though the volcano has remained inactive for the past century, steam vents and seismic activity often take place and can be heard even from a distance. Despite the trek being quite straightforward, people have died during the climb, which makes it vital to either hire a guide or to trek with a group of friends. One would have to take the necessary measure to ensure full safety while undertaking this adventurous journey. Trekkers who set out on this journey also love to spend some time in the small town of Berastagi, the base for the trek. The city is trendy among local day-trippers and is also renowned for its local produce, especially the passion fruit.
