Falls straight down!

Many waterfalls are a series of drops but this one just cascades straight down the side of the mountain in one huge drop. There are markets and food stalls around the area if you... read more

Its worth it! Long journey with fabulous experience! Three hours from Medan. Standing in with the view of Sipisipiso Waterfall at your right and Lake Toba at your left. Our tourist guide (Supir) said we are his first customer (within three years working as supir) whom tried to walk down the trail. Haha. Funny yet worth it! Easy to go... More

Many waterfalls are a series of drops but this one just cascades straight down the side of the mountain in one huge drop. There are markets and food stalls around the area if you need to buy water or want a souvenir. There are also various walking paths you can take to see the waterfall from a different angle.

This was well worth the trip from Samosir Island. My friend and guide took me on motorbike to this stunning spot - about a 2 hour journey each way but amazing scenery to keep you occupied as you cruise along. The waterfall is absolutely stunning. Every view on the way down is breathtaking, and the power and beauty of the... More

If you really wanna experience the force of the waterfalls, u gotta come... More

We visited the Sipisopiso waterfall and the view was superb and perfect for photograph. The viewing site also gave a background of the Lake Toba which was also mesmerising. The walk down to a nearer view of the waterfall takes about 40 minutes down and 40 minutes back up, and I didnt join my 2 young boys and my brother... More
