Berastagi (Dutch: Brastagi), meaning "rice store", is a town and district of Karo Regency situated on a crossroads on the main route linking the Karo highlands of Northern Sumatra to the coastal city of Medan. Berastagi town is located around 66 kilometers (41 miles) south of Medan and about 1,300 meters (4300 feet) above sea level.

Dokan Cultural Village

Reviewed By LouenStephan - Belgium

Dokan is geen museum, het is een traditioneel dorp waar nog steeds mensen leven. Er zijn verschillende traditionele Karo Batak huizen. Je wordt gevraagd om het bezoekersboek te tekenen en een kleine gift te schenken. Kom hier zeker niet met een groep, de inwoners willen nog zichzelf zijn en geen object.
Je kan rustig het grootste longhouse bezoeken, wees discreet. Twaalf verschillende families leven hier samen, ze zijn niet allemaal thuis overdag. Een kleine financiële gift is zeker welkom, de mansen leven hier helemaal niet in luxe

Berastagi Fruit Market

Reviewed By 608trudyl

This is really a market, selling plenty of fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, plants, souvenirs, rabbits, puppies, clothes, etc.. I bought 1kg of very fresh baby carrots with tops for my 2 dear fury kids at home, they loved it so much. Tried looking for souvenirs but sad to say, most stuffs were quite old and dusty. Saw 2 stalls selling baby rabbits, they were all so cute, and allowed to be touched. Puppies however were caged and were sleepy when we were there. Quite a few horses at the market for riding but we didn't try, you couldn't walk very far too. We bought some local oranges too, 1kg for ~$2.50, very juicy, most stalls selling the same price.

Brastagi Highland

Reviewed By Hubert G - Tongeren, Belgium

We drove over the Highland without making a stop . On the other hand we've made a stop in Berastagi itself where we walked over a small Marketplace with tons of fruit and vegetables . Attraction apparently was a ride on ( wild ? ) horses with young men almost excited as the horses were. Not to recommend , unless you're a seasoned equestrian !

Lau Debuk-Debuk Hot Springs

Reviewed By Chrissie2980 - Singapore

We purposely travel more than 2 hrs to see the Hot Spring and brought our slippers along. We were totally disappointed when we reached there. We expect to have some landscape with waterfall but not all swimming pools. We stayed there less than 10 minutes. We would not recommend to friends if they plan to go there.
