Lake Toba - Review

Occupying a vast area of 1,130 square kilometers, Lake Toba is the largest natural lake in Indonesia. Formed due to a major volcanic eruption almost 70,000 years ago, Lake Toba is also the largest volcanic lake in the world. The lake with crystal clear water, the surrounding mountains, and the tropical rainforest together make for a postcard perfect picture. The place is very serene and makes you feel calm and relaxed in no time. Since swimming may be prohibited, you can take a look at this lake from a far distance. Since the lake water isn’t much nutrient-rich, it does not support abundant flora and fauna. Visiting this lake will help you unwind and de-stress after a hectic week.
