Two less accessable Karo villages near Berestagi, both pretty run-down in terms of architecture
Barusjahe is located SW of Berestagi, and can be reached by car. Nearby Desa Serdang suffers from a bridge collapse, and can thus only be reached walking. One is soon discovered by the village children, who find a bule – a foreigner – mightily interesting, worthy of following everywhere, but once they get bored, the village is in fact a wonderful place to wander around: friendly and hospitable people, as almost everywhere in Indonesia.
