Berastagi is a pretty small village, wellknown in the area to be the start point of the excursion at the Mt. Sibayak and his Volcano.
But as not all the people known, nearby the village, at 2 hours ride with a local bus, there is also a tribal village called Serdang where I had the possibility to spend two days/one night in a tipical longhouse.
Serdang is the tipical tribal village, where the population is still not used to see tourist, and moreover, “white european” or “boy of the west” as they were used to call me...
All those things make Berastagi a great stop point during your trip in the amazing island of Sumatra....
If you are so lucky to be able to be invited in Serdang village, as you must have the approvation of the “big boss of the village” to get in, pls do not take with you the video cam as they do not know it yet, and avoid sweets and so on...paper and pens are the wellcome for the kids and our old clothes are the wellcome to mans and womans!!!
For further detials check my tips and the albums....
The ecurion on the Volcano is something that has to be done once in Berastagi, or watching it from the other side, the Volcano is something that makes people stay in Berastagi...so, whatever side you watch, you gotta come!
