As the capital of North Sumatra, Medan has a very strategic position and is the third largest city in Indonesia after Jakarta and Surabaya. There are consulates of foreign countries and it is the primary center of activities of northern Sumatra. In the Malay language "Medan" means a large place to gather.
Lake Toba is the highest and deepest crater lake in the world with a depth of over 450 meter. Lying at 906 meter above sea level.
Lake Toba was formed by a stupendous prehistoric volcanic explosion. The eruption was 75.000 years ago and leaving a spectacular caldera with wonderful landscapes. The explosion with Volcanic Exposivity Index of 8 caused volcanic winter for many years which decimated almost all living things on earth. The resulting 630 km square of land mass in the center of the lake, now known as Samosir Island, is the world's fifth largest island lake. It is also arguably the world's largest island within an island.

Berastagi is wellknown for its fruit and vegetable markets as the main economic activities. This hilly areas is quite cold in climate compares to Medan and other cities in North Sumatera.
