Welcome to Gunung Sitoli
Gunung Sitoli, on the northeastern coast of Pulau Nias, is the island’s main town. It has the feel of any other big, sprawling city on Sumatra's mainland. Rebuilt after the 2005 tsunami, it serves as the main entry and exit point to Nias, and for the most part is of little interest to tourists. The one exception is its excellent museum, which is a must for those interested in indigenous culture.
