This one of the attractive tourist destination not because it's fruits production but more for the two active volcanos, Sibayak and Sinabung, with its hot spring. Tourists were attracted to climb Sibayak that is 2100 meters high because it is most accessible and easy to climb specially for one who already used to it. There is no requirement to do the trek. After climbing we can enjoy the warm water at the hot spring.
At Gundaling you may watch the beautiful panorama of the valley from the top.
