Small hill with view of mount sibayak- however the view is unremarkable. Can go a visit if you're around the area- but not worth going a trip specially to visit this hill.

Too cloudy to view Mount Sinabung and Mount Sibayak when we visited, but the weather is nice and cooling.

Best place to visit if you or your group don't have the stamina or insufficient time to climb the Mount Sinabung or Mount Sibayak. Place not so clean due to the horse riding activity. Feel free to try the deliciou steamed groundnut. R4k entrance fee.

A scenic view of Lake Toba and Tongging from the top is just fabulous. It happened to be a clear view as we drive down. The fold moutain, the lake as back drop and the vilkage dwelling made the panoramic view picturesque. We even have...More

This is the spot for people to enjoy the day, looking at Mt. Sinabung, which until now, is still active erupting dust over the surrounding area. But when I was there, the sky was quite cloudy, so the mountain was just a sketch. The views...More

You have have views of both Mount Sinabung and Sibayak on a clear day. However it is a touristy carpark peak and with quite a lot of trash around. Please note that there is an entrance fee of 4000Rp/pax.
