Colder weather up there is very pleasant. You can camp there without restriction and enjoy hot little springs and great view. Takes only half an hour to go up from parking lot. Dont need hiking equipment, it is easy walk.

It's a nice walk from the end of town. You take a green kama mini bus. From there the first part is a good road to walk on (up up up). After the entrance there's a more dirt road. Crater is nice to see. We...More

A slow trek with guide takes approx 90min to get to the top of Mt. Sibayak which is at 2212m. It is intense at times but worth it. The geysers are amazing. Good walking shoes are recommended. It is not necessary to wake up early...More

Pretty hard to get up early but the reward is the sun rise on the top of the volcano with an impressive view on the Sinabung

I really recommend to visit this place. Take in mind that you need about an hour of hiking to get there. Dress warm, wear good shoes and bring some water! Best to see it with sunrise.

We weren't sure if it was possible to go there without guide. So we went to the tourist office in town and booked a guide to get the whole Mt Sibayak experience: tour to the volcano, hot springs, ghost village. The tour to the volcano...More

We climbed the vulcano with a guide. We loved the views, the plants and the thermal activity at the top. It is somewhat hard to get to the top, but the reward is the amazing view!
