Our first day was so exhausted. It takes about nearly 6 hours trip from Kualanamu Airport to Parapat. Our cribs, Danau Toba International Cottage among the best resorts in Parapat. Its located just the banks of Lake Toba. If you are in Parapat, this resort definately place that you can try with affordable price.
We took our breakfast as early as 7.00 am and check out after that. Our next destination was Samosir Island. This island is a famous Island around here, circle by lake name Danau Toba.
In normal way, you can take normal ferry to cross the lake for only Rupiah 10,000 per person. Its only takes about 30 minutes to enjoy your ferry or boat ride. It was amazing view that you can experience from the ferry. Either you are nature lover or normal traveller, you will definately love the scenery of Parapat, Lake Toba and Samosir Island.
This Lake Toba was so amazing. Clean water, fresh air and with beautiful view will catch your eyes naturally. I wish that I can swim or fishing around here 🙂
There are lot of activities or sight seeing that you can do in Samosir Island. I can suggest you to do mountain climbing, jungle tracking, history visit, water sports and maybe you can swim at Lake Toba.
For this trip, we will visit Ambarita Village and Tomok Village. In addition, we will learn about Samosir Island and Lake Toba history. After this, we will know more about Raja Sidabutar dan also famous Batak Clan’s story here in Samosir Island, North Sumatra.
