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.

Lake Toba, Medan Reviews

  • A beautiful lake in the middle of North Sumatera province. The lake is so beautiful that surrounded by mountains. Some locals believe this is a mystical lake so all the visitors need to show their respect to all surround if not expecting something bad happens.

  • Welcome to one of the largest lake in the world! Everyone can enjoy the panoramic view of Lake Toba from different point of views, for instance from Parapat. Things you can explore here are sunbathing, swimming, enjoying baked foods, bicycling, touring to Samosir to perceive the sense of cultures, and yes walking around. The water is so refreshing and cold, makes me swim just for a couple minutes, LoL. To go to Samosir, you can take small ship with an affordable price that will take you for about 30 minutes. Don't forget to buy traditional souvenirs and you have to bargain if the price doesn't make sense!
