Berastagi, Indonesia

Life of the Karo Batak Tribe

Settled in the Karo Highlands about 15 kilometers from Berastagi, Desa Lingga (Lingga Village) is the most visited attraction that offers a glimpse of the lifestyle of the Karo Batak Tribe and their unique traditional houses with some are about 250 years old. These remaining houses are excellent examples of traditional Karo Batak design with decorative timber structures and graceful thatched roofs covered with palm fiber (ijuk) sheets. They have only one room and usually inhabited by eight families that are related or have a kinship at each. Today the villagers still maintain the same customs of Karo culture as their ancestors did hundreds of years ago, making Lingga famous as a tourism and educational site.
