Berastagi, located 70km from Medan, is a small town, yet busier than Parapat. Berastagi is famous for its fresh vegetables and locally grown passion fruit produce. There are 2 active volcanoes close to Berastagi, namely Mount Sibayak and Mount Sinabung.
Temperature in Berastagi can be a bit low in the evening, hence it is advisable to bring along a sweater/sweatshirt.
Hotel Sibayak is a 4-star resort situated in the highlands of Berastagi. Tranquility is the word that I would use to describe my impression towards the resort. A place for traveler to seek total relaxation. Besides that, what I also like about this resort is the various flowers grown there - just lovely!
