Nice place to check out. Within hours of drive from Medan city. Not too many tourists and locals in that area. Not sure if it is because of weekday

Overall was a great trek. I went on a Tuesday, and was really quiet. Not many tourists around, just a couple of people on the path, and then a few people who had camped at the top. From the bottom, it took about two hours to get to the top, and about an hour and a half to get back... More

A great hike up from the car park but beware the road for mud slides. Lots of weekend hikers and school kids even during the week do the trek. Allow about 2-3 hours. Lots of steam at the top as well as great views.

There were alot of locals hiking with us on the weekend. You can see many camping out as well. But the view on top definately worth the hike.

Europians should be prepared to the lots of "selfie" requests from the local folks :) The way up is unmarket but lots of peple going there so there is no chance to get lost. Be prepaired for a strong smell of fumaroles. Great view on a pool and fumaroles in the crater and jungle on the hills around. Tips: It... More

The volcano itself was an amazing experience - my first ever live volcano. The walk is a good one - quite a hike up but not so far you fell exhausted. The path is eroded by water a lot so if you are not quite fit, this might not be for you. I am also (really) afraid of heights so... More

We depart early in the morning at 4.30am and climbing up from from the easiest route, it was still tough for me but manageable as I control my breathing and walk slowly. Unfortunately it was a cloudy day and no sunrise for me but the view on top of the mountain is awesome, it was my first visit to volcano... More
