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.

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

Hello Leon. As you as you arrive at the hotel ask at the reception for a driver to mount Sibayak. They can also arrange you a guide to the volcanic peak. From my personal experience it is not easy to get lost as long as you... More
