Lake Toba, A Spectacular Indonesia Lake – Lake Toba is one of the extraordinary natural ponders of the world. This enormous hole pool has an island almost the dimensions of the Singapore in its centre. At over 1,145 square km, and a degree of 450 meters, Lake Toba is actually more like an ocean. This is the largest lake in Southeast Asia and one of the deepest lagoons in the world.
Toba is a place to come and sit back, tighten and suck some beautiful pristine surrounding. As you sit and take in the view of the picturesque elevations set against the cool clear pond, you will feel the worries of “the worlds” melt away. As the pond sits 900 rhythms above sea level there is a cooler environment here making a freshening destroy from the heat, humidity and pollution of the city.
Feel the wind in your mane and do as the locals do by hiring a motorbike to explore this beautiful part of the world. If you’re on Samosir Island, make the working day to explore by taking a drive on the road running around the edge of the island. Although rough and unpaved in places, this road presents some spectacular views of the lake from the highest points on the island. If you’re staying in the favourite village of Tuk Tuk on Samosir, the best road to get around is to walk, or stray, down the primary street at a leisurely gait.
