Sipiso-piso waterfall is located in the Tanah Karo regency in North Sumatra, at the northernmost tip of the Lake Toba caldera, near the fishing village of Tongging. The waterfall is visible from the carpark, offers a breathtaking panorama encompassing the northern reaches of Lake Toba. The waterfall is formed by a small underground river of the Karo plateau that falls from a cave in the side of caldera of Lake Toba, some 120 metres (390 ft) down to lake level. Sipiso-piso is a well-known tourist attraction and a nearby vantage point offers views of the falls and lake.
For the adventurous and a closer encounter, a challenging descent to the base is an option, but be prepared for a steep and strenuous return journey. Plan a minimum of 2 hours for this trek.
Gundaling Hill, nestled between the active volcanoes, Mt. Sibayak and Mt. Sinabung, boasts stunning panoramic vistas of these volcanic giants. While Sibayak frequently releases sulfurous gases, Sinabung has seen eruptions in recent years, making this view an extraordinary testament to Earth’s raw power.
Hereafter return to Medan where you arrive in the late afternoon.
