Sumatera Utara

The provincial capital of North Sumatra is Medan. Kuala Namu is the international airport for Medan and also has many regional flights.

Two hours from Medan is Berastagi, a mountain town close to Sibayak and Sinabung. The province includes Lake Toba which was formed after the world’s biggest ever eruption 74,000 years ago. In the middle of Lake Toba is Pulau Samosir, and several mountains, including Pangulubao and Sibuatan, offer views of the lake from the ‘mainland’ and have rare plant species on their slopes. Further south near the border with West Sumatra is an interesting volcano called Sorikmarapi.
